Why Statement Shoes Are Important and How to Style Them

Whether you’re wearing a casual outfit and want to spice it up or have a fun, eccentric outfit you want to compete with the perfect pair of shoes. The right shoes have the potential to make or break your look. 

When I'm deciding what to wear I tend to start from the shoes and work my way up. A pair of unique boots or sneakers can really transform an outfit. Do you ever find an amazing pair of shoes but then think, what would I wear with these? I feel like we’ve all been there! When this happens I think a simple, casual outfit is the easiest way to go. For example, a plain black dress and or a pair of jeans and a white tshirt, or even a band tshirt. With fashion, a minimalist approach can be chic and easy, but then when you add a fly pair of shoes, boots or heels as a statement, center piece, it can really evolve the entire look!

My specialty is retro, vintage inspired looks. A lot of people want to add a little 60's/70's flair to their style but don’t want to go all out. A great solution is to wear your everyday look and pair it with a groovy pair of gogo boots or platforms.

There’s nothing like a great pair of eye-catching shoes that piece the entire outfit together. There are some looks where if the shoes weren't there or if they were a more casual pair (like plain white Adidas or plain canvas shoes) it just wouldn’t be the same! It’s also a simple way to step outside of your comfort zone when it comes to switching up your style. Changing your entire aesthetic can be intimidating, which is why baby steps can help bring you in the right direction. What better way to ease your way into a new aesthetic than simply changing your footwear?


Shoes come in so many different styles and have evolved so much throughout the years, but they will always set the tone for the entire look. You can wear a basic Shein dress, pair it with colorful platform pumps and your drip will turn heads for sure! Most importantly, shoes allow you to express your personality and just be yourself. I’m sure you enjoy fashion trends just as the next person but if you find a fun, niche pair of shoes that compliment YOUR individual style and maybe only you would appreciate, get them! 

Your style is about YOU! How you feel on the inside, projected on the outside. Can’t decide which pair of shoes to wear and want to wear one of each pair? Why not?! Life is short, enjoy yourself, embrace your individuality and wear what makes YOU feel great regardless of other people's opinions.
