The ways to find a perfect pair of shoes
It's amazing what a simple buckle can do for a shoe. Especially if it's a really nice, big, round, shiny buckle -- you know, the kind that just looks really polished and nice.
Buckles, gems, brooches, buttons, bows ... all these little accents can really make a pair of shoes, but again, the key is moderation.
While certain occasions and outfits are perfectly suited to shoes that are overly embellished, for everyday wear it's best to keep your head.
Think chic and streamlined, and look for styles that won't seem too outrageous a year or two down the road.
It seems that a lot of women think that shoes fall into only two categories: stilettos and flats -- or in more extreme cases, stilettos and cross-trainers. But there's a wide, wonderful world of shoes out there that fall somewhere in between the two styles. And while I'll agree that most stilettos are not comfortable, I've worn my share of flats that aren't either.
Low heels, chunky heels, wedge heels, and kitten heels are just a few of the options available to women who don't want to wear sky-high heels, but don't want to spend their lives in sneakers either.
And if you do want to spend your life in flats? By all means, have at it. Chic loafers and ballerina flats never go out of style. But if you're less than thrilled when you look down at your own feet, try looking for nice textures, colors,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], finishes and accents that will take those flats to a whole new level.
Textures and Finishes
Another huge factor that's often overlooked when buying shoes is their texture, yet a texturally interesting shoe is a shoe that grabs attention. A patent finish is like a magnet for the eyes, especially when it's paired with an otherwise matte outfit,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and metallic leathers shimmer with every step you take.
But if shiny isn't your thing, that's okay, there's always suedes, tweeds,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], velvets, satins, tapestries, brocades, linens,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], canvas, quilted fabrics, and combinations of all of those materials -- the list is endless.
You Don't Have to Follow Trends
It's fun to look at the newest trends, but it's far better on your checkbook if you're not buying shoes that are so trendy they'll seem out of style next year.
I'd also argue that it's actually more fun to cultivate your own style over a lifetime than it is to just tear out the latest "What's Hot" list and head off to the nearest department store.
If a trend does happen to fit into your own personal style, then it's you're opportunity to go crazy.
I've always love patent leather and platform shoes, so for me, having them so easily accessible over these last couple of years has been like a bit of a fire sale -- and it's kept me from having to shop vintage.
However, if you're only wearing a certain style because it's "in," and not because you really love it,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], don't invest too much time or money into the trend. Instead keep looking for those shoes that fit your custom style.
