When you are looking for an idea to change up an outfit that you have worn before, add an extra element to dress up an outfit or just generally put together something that makes you feel good – for me the solution has always been a great pair of shoes.
I like to choose shoes that are different, noticeable and make a statement. I have found that I feel great when I am wearing a great pair of shoes.
Shoes can be used to create a contrast from the outfit, add some sparkle, some color or just generally add another dimension.
Experiment putting together outfits by picking the shoes first. Next, add in pants, skirt and top or dress that either contrast or match (but not too closely). Gone are the days of having everything matching, the best look is one that doesn’t look too overthought or polished. So, in other words, if you want to wear a bright blue pair of shoes, don’t wear bright blue clothes. However, if you have a piece that has a pattern it would look OK if part of that pattern highlighted the blue or something really similar.
Have fun with this – I don’t think you will be disappointed.
