Perfect shoes for perfect occasion- Part I

"A man is known by his shoes"- a well known quote. Though its no more restricted to only men.
Shoes can make or break your looks whether its men or women and it is the most essential thing to pay attention too.Choosing a perfect shoe with the outfit can get you lot of compliments and it could be a tough task for many.We girls have racks full of shoes, which makes it all the more difficult to choose shoes for the perfect occasion and for the best pick with the outfit. How do I choose? What should I look for? What will go with my outfit? and so on...

How do I choose? - Go by the Occasion

Comfort- Always look for comfortable shoes. Don't buy shoes just because you like the look of it.Whether you are going for flats or heels, buy a comfortable piece that you can wear if you have to walk an extra mile.

When you will have all the comfortable pairs in your wardrobe that becomes more easy to choose a pair for the outfit.

Flats- Flats are very comfortable and appropriate for those who likes to shop every now and then. If you know that you have to walk alot then opt for flats sandals or shoes.

Heels - Heels are something more appropriate for parties. You can't walk the street in heels. If you know that you are going for dinner date or a friend's party or for a wedding then you can definitely opt for heels. But that again has to be comfortable so that you can dance in it.

Flip-Flops- They are for beach or for a holiday not for the party in the town.

And if you are unsure about the occasion its best to carry an extra pair with you.

What Should I Look for?

Contrast- It is something completely opposite to the color of your outfit but it should be something that can compliment your outfit lot more. Just don't go blindly, look for the color that can enhance your outfit.

Shoes from same hue- It is safe and easy to choose the shoe in same color of your outfit. Avoid wearing one solid color from head to toe.

Brighter shoes - You can add a pop to your monochrome outfit by selecting a shoe in a bolder color or print.

Neutral Color- Choosing neutral color with your outfit can never make you go wrong. And it is very appropriate in day time.

What will go with my outfit?

Western Outfit- 

  • With party dresses or LBD, choosing a stiletos or a strappy high heeled sandals would be a good option.
  • Wear high heels with gowns and to dress up dark jeans.
  • Wear flats with more casual outfits or with lighter bottoms.

  • Wear strappy flat sandals with summer dresses.
  • Wear Flats with above knee or knee length skirts, capri or shorts.
Indian Outfit-

  •  I have mention in one of my earliest post that Pumps and Patiyala Salwar can never go wrong.
  • If you are wearing a chudidar, try completing the look with colorful juttis or flats stoned sandals.

  • Avoid wearing flat sandals with sarees as it will not give your saree a perfect look. Strappy high heeled sandals should be worn with sarees.
  • If you are opting for Indo-western look then you can go for kitten heeles sandals or colorful juttis.
