‘A woman with good shoes is never ugly.’ – Coco Chanel
Like I have mentioned before, for me, picking the right pair of shoes is where it all starts. There are a few things about a pair of shoes that you need to consider before taking this step.
- Does the style of shoes I am picking out go with my style of outfit? For example, if you are picking out flats to go with a pair of pants you may want to steer away from pants that are too tight. Heels would be a better choice here because they tend to elongate your legs and are more flattering.
- Am I going to be able to wear these shoes all day? This is common sense, but strangely something that is very often overlooked. Don’t pick out a pair of heels or flats that are not comfortable (no matter how nice) if you don’t feel like you have the stamina to wear them all day without limping around. There is nothing worse than seeing someone wearing a pair of shoes that is causing them to limp and hobble everywhere.
- What is more important to me, to be noticed or to be practical? If you want to be noticed, then be bold and try new styles, colors and even add in some patterns. If you are more of a practical kind of girl, that’s OK too. There are definitely choices out there that can be both practical and fun, it may just require a little more effort to find them.
I have never been one to be conservative with any of my shoes, I see them, I like them and I buy them. There are so many famous women that consider shoes to be the most important part of any outfit and I tend to agree.
