Color me Cognac

One of my absolute FAVORITE wardrobe pieces last spring, was a rust/cognac color dress from the Who What Wear line for Target. It is boho perfection with it’s loose fit, shin grazing length, and thin straps. It’s loose, it’s comfortable, and is easy to dress up and down. When I first saw it in the store, it spoke to me and I knew I wanted to buy it. Even though I usually associate the color cognac with fall, this color really works for spring and summer too.

What is great about this shade, is that it oddly pairs well with a variety of other colors and looks great on all skin tones. Lately, this color is popping up all over in a variety of pieces. Designers are using it in accessories such as purses and tassels, to shoes, tops, skirts – you name it.

One of the most popular items that an be seen on a number of Instagram feeds are these simple wedges that are minimal in design, and great for pairing with a variety of outfits. Basically these are slowly becoming the summer staple that you need to go buy now. A variety of designers have taken this shoe design on, so finding one in your preferred price point should not be a difficult feat. Below are a few to show you the range in price and similarity in design.
