Women love shoes, FACT. Sometimes even we’re not sure why we love them so much, maybe it’s the ability of a pair of shoes to make us taller, or the way that shoes can complete an outfit, maybe it’s because we can rely on a good pair of shoes to never let us down, oh yes, that’s why we love them! Shoes can make us feel sexy, confident and sometimes those extra couple of inches on a pair of heels make all the difference! So now that we’ve ditched the tights we can make the most of this seasons hottest footwear trends. Peep-toe is the way forward this summer, whether they’re sandals, shoe boots or flats. This does mean however, that attention must be paid to getting our feet and toes looking just as good as our new peep-toe wedges! Summer shoes are as bold as summer clothing this season, bright and bold prints for example have not only extended the length and breadth of our wardrobe but have now also extended down to our feet! As the rule goes, the louder the better. Nude shoes are also very now and can have the effect of making our legs look longer (court style shoes in nude tones are best for achieving this leg lengthening effect). Statement shoes can be the icing on the cake of an outfit and if you’re wearing great shoes, no-one will really be looking at the rest of your outfit anyway! So far this season we have seen the return of the wedge, the clog, the neon bright shoe and utility style shoes. There really is so much to choose from, it makes us giddy just thinking about going into a shoe shop! However, to do your new summer shoes justice you need perfectly pampered toes. Colour clashing your shoes with your nail polish is the way forward this summer. Neon pink heels? Wear ink blue nails for effect. Utility grey works well in contrast with tangerine orange, whether you wear grey shoes and orange nail varnish or orange shoes and grey nail varnish, the effect will be just as good either way! Pastel tone nail polish will add interest to black shoes, whilst black polish works well for utility style footwear giving it a hardened edge. White varnish is also great for summer, but looks best when matched with white shoes rather than contrasted with other colours.
Get pampering ladies, this season’s fabulous shoes won’t wear themselves!!
