Often when I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to wear, I’ll start with the shoes and work my way up. It has become a reliable method for determining how to a wear a statement shoe. You know how sometimes you get a bright or printed pair of shoes that look so good in the store and then you bring them home and don’t know how to incorporate them in your closet? Well, building an outfit around the shoes can be helpful. I tend to wear a monotone or muted color palette so the shoes will stand out. Yesterday I wanted to wear my ‘Dorothy’ shoes so I chose an all black outfit with gold accents so the shoes would pop.
