How To: Pick the right shoes for an outfit

Pick the right shoes for an outfit

You don't have to be a slave to fashion to pick the right shoes for your outfit. Follow these tips for a put-together look.

* Clothes
* Confidence

Step 1
Choose your shoe style according to the occasion. Wear high heels with gowns, and to dress up dark jeans. Wear flats with more casual wear or lighter jeans.

Flip-flops are for the beach, not for a night on the town.

Step 2
Consider style. Kitten heels are comfortable and can be dressy, but it's best to wear them with straight-legged pants or a-line skirts. Stilettos make your legs look long and make you taller, so wear them with long dresses or boot leg pants to make an impact.

Step 3
Choose your shoe color based on the colors of your outfit. You can choose the dominant or accent colors. You can also opt for a neutral color such as beige, navy, brown, or black. Your shoe color does not have to be an exact match.

Add a pop to your neutral or monochrome outfit by selecting a shoe in a bolder color or print.

Step 4
Don't get caught up in labels. Dressing in head-to-toe signature prints and logos will make you look like a walking billboard. A designer label item is not a guaranteed match for your outfit.

Fact: When they're hot, feet can swell up to one full shoe size.
