Time to put your judgy pants on - or judgy shoes, rather - as we explore what your shoes say about you.
People often underestimate the power of the perfect pair… they can change an entire outfit, even your entire demeanour. So, in order to put your best foot forward, take a look at why your shoes should be anything but an afterthought.
Cast your mind back to your morning commute. We're sure you have spotted that woman in the expensive tailored suit and thought, “shame about the sneakers”. You judge her based on her practical decision to get to and from work comfortably, but why? It seems unfair. All we want to do is get to work and put on the heels the outfit was made for.
Therein lies the key. An outfit should be made to match the shoe. Not the
other way around. You see, shoes hold the power; they can turn casual jeans and
a t-shirt into an effortlessly chic ensemble. They can be the show-stopping statement
or the modest hero.
take a few staples for example: ankle boots, heels and white sneakers. You
should be able to build your entire wardrobe around these three styles. Here’s

Ankle boots are probably one of the most versatile styles, which says a lot about those who wear them. Practical, dependable and timelessly fashionable are just a few words that come to mind. Often only let out in autumn or winter (a heart-breaking waste), ankle boots can be everything you need, all year round. From jeans and a winter coat to a flowy summer dress, the world’s your oyster.

Heels speak volumes. From playful to power play, it’s all about finding the right pair. Make a statement with a pointed toe and pair it with a wide-leg pant to soften the structured look. Squared toes can be more versatile, allowing you to go from formal to informally chic.

White sneakers can be seen as subtle self-confidence. They’re not too showy but give an air of pride to an appearance. We all know someone who wears white sneakers with just about any outfit, to just about any occasion. They know a good thing when they see it, so why mess with it?
To come full circle, shoes are what people tend to notice first and what leaves that lasting impression. So, next time you’re fussing over what to wear, start at the bottom and work your way up.
