Statement shoes are really fun, but what do you wear them with?? Here are some ideas for simple outfits to pair with statement shoes so the shoes really shine.
What do you wear with statement shoes?
A few weeks ago I got a reader question about statement shoes. She wanted some ideas on how to wear them.
I love wearing statement shoes because I’m a basics kind of girl, so adding a fun statement shoe adds just enough personality to my outfit.
Here are three simple tips to help you wear your statement shoes:
- Keep the rest of your outfit a little more subdued — I’d recommend staying away from super bold pieces that will create a very loud outfit with pieces competing. For example: if you have leopard print boots, avoid wearing a loud print top or dress. You don’t have to wear neutral colors necessarily, just don’t do anything that competes for attention.
- Create balance in your outfit — if your shoes are super bold, make sure the rest of the outfit feels balanced by color or texture or tone. I have a whole post about creating balance in your outfit right here!
- Choose the right shoe — I have a pair of leopard ankle boots that are the perfect leopard print, but they’re just a clunky pair of boots that make my feet look a little bigger than I’d like. I’ve also had leopard flats that are a nice fit and shape, but the leopard print looks cheap. Don’t choose a statement shoe just cause it’s fun and bold…make sure it’s one that’s worth your dollars and they’re flattering on your feet, comfortable, and versatile!
