Shoes and Fashion Sense – Get Some Shoes on That Girl!
A quick little video for my female models who love shoes and are proud of it? I hope you enjoy this little fashion segment away from your day at the studio.
This is the story about a girl who is going to get what she wants, no matter what. She may not be the prettiest girl on the block.
She may be a bit overweight. And even though haters pop up left and right, she doesn’t let them drag her down. Now, go below the video to get some great tips for buying and wearing simple shoes for women, you’ll be happy you did!
Sometimes Simple Shoes Give a Bold Look
KISS – Keep it simply simple is a phrase to remember when buying shoes.
Women just love shoes, no question about it. The right pair of shoes make the simplest costume a fashion statement. Heels, sandals, boots, clogs and sneakers are standards in every ladies shoe closet.
Pleasing Your Man with Simple Shoes
When we visit a shoe shop, we’re often looking for styles that men find appealing. There is a practical side to life which requires a shoe that you can walk a lot of miles in comfort, if not with allure.
Perhaps this is why most women who walk to work in Manhattan sport tennis shoes on the street.
Those wedge sandals with delicate satin ribbons spiraling around your leg aren’t up to the task. Read on to learn the secrets to painless feet at the end of the day. As plain as the toes on your feet: simple shoes.
Not Always Just for Sport
Tennis shoes are simple enough. However, business clothes and tennis shoes do look a bit odd. Let’s say you’re going on vacation overseas, visiting large cities and exploring them on foot, walking miles each day.
You’ll be going to museums, theaters, dining in fine restaurants and other situations where a dressy pair of shoes is desirable.
What you’re looking for is a shoe of simple, classic lines that is truly comfortable and yet attractive. Yes, such shoes do exist. Be you a traveler or foot commuter, consider the upscale cousin of the tennis shoe.
Italian Fashion Sense
We all know that some of the finest shoes in the world are Italian shoes, made of the highest quality, buttery-soft leathers. Even the most stylish high heeled shoes made of such leather are noted for comfort.
These quality leathers are a bit more pricey than a cheap shoe from the discount rack. Simple shoes of soft leather and good craftsmanship, will carry you in style and comfort for thousands of miles and many years.
The Simple Shape of Your Footwear
Another characteristic of the upscale simple shoe is its shape. It must be shaped, more or less, like your foot.
No pointy toes, heels higher than 1 ½ inches, straps or other adornments that will cut into your foot. Keep your eyes peeled for a shoe with lines resembling a ballerina’s shoe similar to the Calvin Klein Simple Oxford shown in this picture. These are the quintessential fancy simple shoes.
Soft, quality leather molds to the shape of your foot, stretching ever so slightly to accommodate the natural placement of your feet when walking. Leather also breathes, which prevents damp, swollen feet.
Color My World with Hues
Another consideration when purchasing classic simple shoes is color. Black is the most versatile, as it works with almost all costumes. Choose a shoe without ornamentation. Get a few clip-on shoe ornaments for casual and dress attire.
Keep Your Feet Comfortable
That’s it. Now you’re prepared to walk with ease, on vacation adventures or just cross town. There are review sites you can check online for the most comfortable shoes and I suggest doing a bit of research before you buy. Remember, look for good leather and construction.
Be prepared to pay a bit more. If your budget is tight, you might consider shopping for simple shoes at one of the many shoe stores online.
