Do your shoes have to match your outfit?
It is considered archaic and old fashion to wear shoes that match the colors of the dress or suit.
Additionally, who has the resources to buy shoes to match every outfit in their wardrobe?
There is an upside to dressing up and matching your shoes to your outfit, though.
For one, it simplifies the process of getting dressed, and two, it adds an unexpected sheen to nearly all of your garments.
Brands like Chanel, Balenciaga, and Valentino have been putting out ensembles complete with matching shoes on the runway.
Here are three key pointers on how to pair your shoes with your clothing in a way that is both stylish and up-to-date.
- Pick out footwear that is a shade darker than the rest of your ensemble.
- Try to style an outfit by using different shades of the same color.
- Don’t wear shoes that are the exact shade or material as the rest of your ensemble.
