I have come to realize that we ladies are big on shoes and I think our love for shoes is not necessarily because of the saying; that the first thing people notice about you are your shoes. Could it be because of Variety? But whatever your reasons are for loving shoes, having the right pair at the right time could and will save you when least expected.
My style idea is – Be Comfortable, Again if you can’t walk for a mile in that stiletto or is that flat very tight that it leaves a trophy (blister) on your toes! Just know it is not Stylish and certainly not the right pair.
Shoes are accessories, shoes are part of your style, it complement your look, in fact a little shoetivity error can ruin your style completely. Just like clothing , there are different types of foot wear for women: from dress shoes to casual, athletic and boots. But the purpose of this article is to get the right one to complement your dressing or rather get the footwear that defines your style.
Elevation. Agreed, your footwear can elevate you completely – NO I don’t mean making you taller, it can transform you into a whole new person. Let me set the record straight, the purpose for high heels is not to make women appear taller, as some people believe. Heels are like an elegant woman trademark, it speaks for her when she’s not all about talking. Heels can transform an effortless dressing into an all sophis’ look. High heels come in different shapes – stiletto, pump (court shoe), block, tapered, blade, and wedge.
To elevate your dressing select a foot wear that is edgy, kinda out of your dressing category. I mean – if you will wear a simple pant and a botton up shirt regardless of the colours, select a platform heel that is colour blocking, Neon are best for this purpose. Or you can wear a pointed toe pump heel with leggings and finish the look with a simple matching top or even a botton up shirt still.
Make the switch – From the beach to a meet and greet gathering or fast food etc. Pick a wedge sandal the are best for a casual but chicky look.
Not “Fashole” go for flats I mean very flats like sandals and slippers. If you will wear maybe something very short like a little Jump short or ladies short, either you wear a flat sandal or a flipflop depending on where event is taking you, but not over the knee boot it is a total fashion buzz kill! For little clothing. You can even wear a sandal with a long casual dress.
Down play – Pick flat shoes, it is best for down playing a formal dressing. The good thing about flats is that, it is an office friendly footwear. Slippers and flat sandals in an office is Just another way of telling people the height of your irresponsibility! Although sandals can be acceptable in some offices on dress down/ casual days, but slippers in an office is a thumbs down and should not be worn by any lady who considers herself stylish.
The good thing about flats is that, it makes you feel not so dressy/ overly dressed but same time retain your stylish look.
