In the fashion world, if you are a woman, you easily understand how important shoes are in defining your style and fashion sense. It’s not really that surprising if you find the women in your lives having a large collection of shoes in their closet. Most women believe that there are different shoes for the right occasions.
There are so many different types and styles of shoes for women to choose from and I bet every girl spend hours at the mall, entering every shop deciding which and what to buy. Having a large variety to choose from, you also have to match the shoes to the occasion. A pair of shoes appropriate for one event may not be suitable for a different setting. This is not a rule that you need to follow. There is freedom when it comes to fashion and expressing yourself. But here are some tips you might like to consider on deciding which shoes are perfect to wear for the right occasion.
If you are running errands and you need something that is comfortable and you don’t want your feet to get hurt in a long period of time, you can choose to opt for running or athletic shoes. For 2018, sneakers are not only used for running or for the gym, it has now become a fashion trend. This type of shoes are comfy and will not have you wincing in pain at the end of the day. They say that a woman should own at least one pair of sports shoes. If you’re not a fan of wearing sneakers, you can embrace the comfort of flats too. Flat shoes are also great for settings like work that involves hours of standing or walking. There are many various designs of flats that you can choose from if you want to remain a little stylish and comfy at the same time.
When winter comes, your number one concern is staying as warm as possible. It’s also ideal to get a pair of boots that are waterproof, preventing your feet from getting wet. It’s important to keep your toes toasty during the harshest weather. Boots are cute and stylish if, for example, you wear it with a pair of jeans for a smart casual look. Ankle boots are fashionably great for casual dates. If the weather is super cold, you can opt for boots that come up to your mid-calf or even higher.
For evening events such as dinners, formal parties, or galas, the most common shoes that you should wear are high heels. High heeled shoes look elegant and will give you the confidence to look taller and sophisticated especially if you are wearing a long dress. Some are not used to wearing high heels as it can be quite harsh on your feet. Wedged shoes are a more comfortable option than stilettos. They have a sturdier and thicker heel that will support your balance--lesser are the chances of tripping over your feet. Don’t be hesitant to wear sophisticated flats to such events, as long as you are sure that the flats you picked will go perfectly with your formal outfit, then you are good to go.
In the end, comfort should be the top priority and style should only come after that. You don’t really have to follow a certain trend or style, what matters is how you can express yourself freely. You are always free to create a statement of your own.
