They’re the last thing you put on before leaving the house, and the first thing you take off upon coming home, but that’s no reason for your shoes to be an afterthought when you’re getting dressed. A good pair of shoes can really pull an outfit together, or add a bit of character when it comes to a failsafe ensemble. Try going for a metallic hue to experiment with colour: silver pairs well with white and cool shades, while bronze and gold can complement warmer tones. If you’re keeping it simple on top, consider a pair in colourful candy or pastel tones to add a sweet surprise and jazz up a monochrome outfit. Finally, why not take the whimsical route with little accessories on your shoes—think tassels, embroidered details, and metallic charms to help you catch some second looks. Plain, sensible pumps and sneakers are wardrobe staples, of course, but if the occasion calls and your mood needs a pick-me-up, have some fun with footwear that will help you stand out in all the right ways.
