6 Ways to Style Shoes with Every Outfit
1. Color of the shoes
Now colors play a very important role in determining how we look. I love to have a little matchy-matchy moment with my shoes and outfit. Although it may seem old fashioned but the Royal like Kate and Meghan and the OG Diane have all done it. Even if you don’t have the same exact color as your outfit go with the relevant shades, match with some color in the outfit to make the look feel seamless and creative. If your outfit is more of a neutral tone or pastel colored. I would recommend to spice it up with a bold, flashy and striking shoes to break the monotony and bring fire to it. If you are wearing formal or professional attire, think of going with standard colors like blacks, tan, beige or gray, so as not to attract any unwanted attention.
2. Season Based Selection of Shoes
We generally witness 4 seasons around the globe, out of which the summer season and the winter season are the most distinctive. We all have summer shoes and winter shoes in our wardrobe that we like to pair with the related dresses. For summer time we usually like to wear slip dresses, easy breezy mini dresses or simple breathable jeans or shorts, so pair them up with sandals, flats or sliders and if going out wear espadrilles or sneakers. When the transition period of summer to winter comes like fall, you would like to wear your long sleeve crop tops with something that gives more coverage so ankle booties or sneakers are perfect for daytime and for night time the ever worthy of wearing high heels. For the winter season the knee-high boots or pumps or loafers give warmth and protection. Women’s shoes are extremely versatile and friendly, they will be by your side in every season and situation.
3. Choosing Heels Correctly
Heels are those styles of shoes that made every girl fall in love with shoes. Stilettos are unforgiving, attractive and super chic to wear. One must style them in such a way that it respects this beautiful style of shoes while making you feel amazing. The best outfits to pair with high heels are the ones that are elongated like pencil skirts, formal pants, midi skirts and blazers. If you are someone who has a shorter height or small legs than always go for heels no more than 3-4 inches. The girls who have large feet should always opt for peep toes or oval-shaped heels. For more casual clothing you can wear stylish heels in bright colors to make your ordinary day sparkle. Lastly if you have any sexy, strappy heels, never pair them up with formal attire, always go for slip dresses, cocktail dresses and sundresses.
4. Sandals for that Comfort and Style
Sandals are the perfect pair of shoes that can be combined with any outfit for a win! These sandals can be low-heeled for the comfortable, everyday look or can be high heels for that date night look. Sandals can also be the comfy choice with shorts and sundresses. I love wearing sandals and pairing them up with my outfits for that ultimate cross between comfort and style.
5. Boots and Booties for Bingo!
Who doesn’t love boots? I love pairing them up with my winter wardrobe as they don’t only look warm but also feel warm. Pair them up with boot-cut jeans for that perfect elongated look. Ankle boots, knee-high boots and thigh-high boots are all an amazing range of booties which can go with coats, jeans, cardigans, slip dresses as well as other formal attire.
Sneakers have literally taken the world by storm, from east to west everyone loves sneakers. At this point you can pair them up with any outfit you want and they will look just perfect!
