You Do It All. Your Shoes Should, Too.

3-minute read

Fashion Stylist, Julianne Costigan, talks personal style and the importance of footwear that not only looks beautiful but keeps up with your busy lifestyle. Her go-to's: The On The Go Ballet Flats from Poppy Barley’s EverEase comfort collection—footwear that looks as good as it feels.

 

You empower so many women by helping them refine their personal style. What advice would you give to someone searching for theirs?

Your style should reflect who you are. Start by asking; How do I need my wardrobe to function for me? What do I want to communicate through my style? What are my style goals? Use those questions to start a mood board and save outfit inspiration that aligns with your answers. Then, start putting it into action and have fun shopping! Lean into the process of self-discovery and build a closet that helps you look and feel your best.

What are three words you’d use to describe your personal style?

Elevated, effortless, and polished.

What do you love most about your career?

Working with our client base of real, trail-blazing women–I am constantly inspired by their drive. I feel honoured to help women curate a wardrobe that reflects their values, boosts their confidence, and aids in their success.

Building my team and working with incredible brands has been an extension of this, and has allowed our mission to reach an even wider audience of women.

You hold a lot of titles—CEO, stylist, and mom, to name a few! You do it all. Your shoes should, too. How do you find shoes that keep up?

Picking shoes that accommodate life on the go without compromising style is all about finding brands who care about their customer and design styles that do it all. Poppy Barley does such a great job of using comfort technology while still considering the look. I frequently recommend Poppy Barley footwear for my clients, especially those looking to maximize comfort or require extended sizing.

Once you have shoes you can rely on, the best thing you can do is wear them strategically. I like to leave a spare heel at the office, a boot in the car, and slip a flat into my purse so that I can adapt to any situation in both comfort and style with ease!

What is your favourite EverEase style and why?

The On-The-Go Ballet Flats embody my ideal style; elevated, effortless, and polished. They are simple, stylish, and comfortable, making them extremely versatile. I love to wear mine for everyday looks with classic denim and a button-up, and occasionally dress them up for an evening out!

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
