Buying shoes can be an absolute minefield, with so many different styles, colours and different jargon used to describe them it can be a tricky subject to approach. Each pair of shoes is are required for a different season, event, frame of mind or to match with varying types of clothing. Perhaps you prefer a high heel to compliment your legs or a flat shoe when you just want to feel comfortable. Good advice can also be hard to come by but fear not as we have a fantastic guide to shoe buying to help you out. If you follow this guide then you will be able to find the perfect shoe for you in no time at all. It is then up to to you to decide on the colour to match that awesome outfit of yours. Before starting your search there are a couple of things that you need to consider.
First and foremost it’s important to consider why you are looking for shoes, is it just a whimsical purchase because you just love shoes? Are you buying them for work purposes? Or are they for a special event. If they are on a whim then you don’t need to think too much, just browse away in shops or online and let yourself be inspired. If you are buying shoes for work purposes then you need to consider if they will match your workwear, if they will be comfortable and if they will be durable enough for the amount of time you spend on your feet, the last thing that you want is to be buying new shoes every 6 months or so. If they are for a special event then consider the colours or style of clothing that you will be wearing and then match your shoes accordingly, there are some great style guides online to help you out.
Seasonal or Forever Stylish
Some shoes just never go out of fashion, black strapped heels, laced boots and nude kitten heels to name but a few and every woman should be armed with some of these evergreen styles. On the flip-side of this are the seasonal shoes that you just HAVE to buy, this can be dangerous as if you try to hard to stay up with the current fad then you can end up with a whole bunch of shoes that you used once or twice and are unlikely to wear again. The best thing you can do with fashion shoes is shop smart to avoid overspending, if you can afford it then fine, buy away, but if not then consider looking for the trendy shoes that will come back around. Plenty of women’s magazines also offer great places to buy in-style shoes at fractional prices so keep an eye on those too.
