2. Repeat the Colours

This black/grey and white snakeskin print dress works well with these (from Target people) wedge sandals.   I could have also worn some blue or turquoise shoes to match my accessories.

Wearing White in Winter

My shoes repeat the colour of my top (not perfectly but close enough).  These are from Clarks and I love them for their comfy shoes.

  • I just love some of those 30 ideas for shoes, especially the delicate ones with heels one could walk in. I love shoes and I look after my favourites – still have a pair of Charles Jourdain boots from the late 70s that I drag out when I want to be extra well dressed in winter.

    But I do think that first of all shoes must be comfortable and I see no reason why they can’t also be beautiful.

    And finally my mother said that you should always buy good quality shoes and look after them – bad shoes show on your face and your feet over time.

  • Another great post! Can I ask: sometimes I like to wear nude coloured shoes to work to lengthen my legs. They look good to me with a mid grey skirt, but I don’t like them with a black skirt. Is that because the value contrast is too great or is it just my personal taste, do you think? I’m curious!

  • Thank you for the post! I am one of those people you mentioned with an assortment of black shoes only. Until now I didn’t see a reason to change this. I am afraid that if I buy shoes that are more colorful or fancy I will not wear them in the end. Also, I do not know where to start. Imogen, how would you go about starting a more varied shoe collection ? What to buy first? How do you still find shoes that are classics and can be worn for a long time?

  • What a great article! I struggle with finding loafers and pumps that work on my EU size 39/UK size 6 feet. I can find ones that fit but I feel they look unflattering and was wondering if you could advise me. I am 5’4″ and a UK size 12, pear shaped. Many thanks Chrissie x
