How to Select Shoes to Wear with an Outfit

Some women get a bad rap for having shoe obsessions. With all of the endless styles and colors of footwear, to choose from, who can blame a woman for having her closet stacked from top to bottom with shoes? This guide will teach you how to select shoes to wear with an outfit no matter what the color of the outfit, the occasion or season it is. Get started at step one below.

Consider the Color

Choose shoe colors that match your clothes instead of colors that compete with your clothes.
Wear simple black heels or flats when wearing a dress with a bright, bold pattern. If you were to wear a more complex shoe, it would be too overwhelming in the opinion of some. Obviously, you can wear whatever shoes you like provided there is no dress code to obey or health and safety issues to consider.
Consider neutral or 'nude' heels or flats if you have on a sparkly evening top.


Add zest to a plain outfit

Add a pop of color by pairing a red heel with a black or brown dress.
Try a dressy shoe with a funky pattern, like alligator skin, if you have on a simple blouse and neutral trousers or jeans.
Home in on a color found in your clothing if you’re wearing a multi-colored outfit. For instance, if you have on a blouse with a geometric pattern including the colors purple and pink, consider a deep purple shoe.


Avoid strict color matching

Do not wear one solid color from head to toe. If you have on a blue blouse and a blue skirt, avoid wearing blue shoes, unless you want to. Remember the fashion police can't actually charge you with anything!
Consider different shades. If you have a light pink blouse on, try wearing a rose-colored flat or heel instead of a shoe in the same shade of pink.


Select standard colors

Wear brown or black leather shoes at a conservative office. Grey and navy a red good choices for the office too.
Incorporate color only if you have a less strict office with a corporate casual dress code.
