It almost seems like shoes are an afterthought, but honestly they can make or break your outfit. There are a few shoe factors when considering your next outfit, let’s take a moment to run down the list:
- What is the occasion? Is it dressy or is it casual? Is it outdoors or indoors? Is it with new friends or old acquaintances? All of these should play a factor in your decision on what to wear. For instance you wouldn’t wear a stilleto heel to an outdoor wedding reception nor would you wear a tall dress boot to a casual Sunday brunch. Assess the situation and make an appropriate choice. And if you are uncertain, dial a friend and ask for advice.
- What do I already have in my wardrobe? Even though you have worn something before, don’t be afraid to wear it again, especially if it flatters you and keeps a few dollars in your pocket. Also think about how you might freshen up an old look with a new belt or especially with a new pair of women’s designer shoes!
- What do your shoes look like in comparison to your outfit? Is your outfit new, but your shoes look worn or scuffed? Don’t let your footwear choices be an afterthought, instead make that choice a priority. As Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a Girl the Right Shoes and She can Conquer the World”
- And finally remember that comfort is the key. How long will your event last? Will it be one hour or four? Uncomfortable shoes will make for an uncomfortable experience. Remember you are there to have fun! New shoes that are made from good Italian leather will make your events unforgettable, and shoes that don’t fit or the heel is too high will also make for an unforgettable event, but for all the wrong reasons.
Choosing the right shoe for the right season, the right occasion, and the right outfit is an art form that you can easily master. And if you need options, make sure to check out the wide assortment of women’s designer shoes at Embassy London USA.
