Styling Basics

Black and Blue

Be color conscious, don't go overboard with several contrasting colors. Keep your shoes within the same color scheme as you ensemble.

Wearing neutrals? Add a pop of color with a red or maroon shoe.

Monochromatic White

Silhouettes are everything. If you have a bulkier shoe don't pair it with a pair of skinny jeans, instead try it with a pair of capris, a dress or skirt. The sudden change in width disrupts the flow of the look and can look tacky.

Sleek Monochrome

Create an overall sleek look by incorporating a narrow, more fitted shoe to a form fitting outfit.

Athleisure

Is it a tennis shoe or a TENNIS SHOE? The overall look of the shoe makes a huge difference on what it should be paired with. For a more athletic looking shoe wear it with pieces that are more casual.
