Just like the right belt, scarf, or handbag, shoes can make or break your outfit. Of course there are times when you really don’t care whether your clothes and your shoes match or complement each other, such as when you’re running in athletic shoes, or wearing an old pair of work shoes while you paint the house or do other manual labor. However, when you go out in public, whether to work, dinner, or just running errands, the shoes you choose play a big role in the overall look and appeal of your wardrobe choices!
Here’s one example of how shoes can actually break your style. Career professionals should look the part, whether you are a man or woman. Women in particular have so many wardrobe choices for the office, from slim skirts and trousers paired with a classic jacket, to sweaters and skirts paired with leggings. In case you weren’t aware, hosiery is out other than super sheer, natural toned options that look like your actual skin. Tights are great, particularly black tights paired with boots. What could be the worst choice in shoes for a career woman? White shoes – anytime, even before Labor Day, white shoes are out. Also, no strappy sandals or sexy shoes at the office!
Of course, strappy sandals or stiletto heels are fine when you’re going out to dinner for the evening at an upscale restaurant, however it depends on what you’re wearing. These styles are great with evening apparel such as a sparkly dress or formal wear, but it all depends on your wardrobe. Fancy shoes designed for evening wear would be a little much for jeans and a sweatshirt if you’re running out to McDonald’s for a burger.
Most women have good fashion sense, and know when a pair of shoes doesn’t “go” with the outfit they’ve chosen. Think of shoes as you would a handbag, belt, scarf, or even jewelry, as an accessory of sorts. Do the shoes complement your wardrobe choice and make it look amazing? Or do they clash or stand out, and not in a good way? Certain wardrobe choices look even more spectacular when you add a thin gold belt to accentuate a thin waist, or a wide leather belt, depending on the outfit. Just as slim gold hoop earrings are the choice of most women over stuffy pearls, your footwear should be chosen just as carefully.
