How to Choose Leggings and Shoes


Hi Imogen,
just wondering what leggings to wear with a white skirt I purchased for summer/autumn? I’m guessing that lighter toned shoes ( I have some nude coloured heels) will work with the outfit but I’ve never tried this look before, thanks, Dot

When choosing shoes to go with leggings there are a few points to consider.

 Length of leggings

Low vamp shoes in a similar colour, ankle boots or high vamp shoes work

– long leggings can work with either a low or high vamp shoe in a similar colour to the leggings.

Low vamp shoes are best, particularly if you want a flat shoe, otherwise opt for a nude shoe

– short leggings look best with either a low vamp flat shoe or wedge, or a low or high vamp nude shoe.


Weight of shoes

– keep your shoes not too heavy.  Thick and chunky soles will look out of place with skirts or dresses and leggings.

  • Hi Imogen, another great post thanks and I agree, great tunic dress! I just love those ruffled black shoes though, can you let slip where they come from??

    I have quite small feet for my height and substantial (figure8?) build, therefore my feet always appear disproportionately tiny, and like I might topple over like a weeble. Can you give any tips for this dilemma (I’m not a huge fan of high heels, though mid-height are fine, I like comfyish shoes and I think ‘flatforms’ could help). One of my best shoe choices was a 1.5″ gladiator, with criss-cross straps, plaited leather, gold beads, etc on them, ie lots of adornment – but that’s not always easy to find…. hmm…

    I’ve tried looking online for solutions, but most of the information seems to be centred on how to make feet look smaller, which is one body/style issue I really don’t have to add onto my list 🙂
