The days of matchy-matchy shoes and bags are a thing of the past.
Here are some tips for being creative when deciding what goes with what!
Valentino Snakeskin Bag Dior Buckle Boot
- Combine Textures- ex. a patent, glossy shoe can be balanced with a plush, velvet bag
- Prints with Solids-don't double up on a large print, balance a print with a solid. You don't have to shy away from color, such as the red-snakeskin bag with the black buckle boot above
- Mix Metallics with Matte-shimmery silver looks sleek with black, or try gold and bronzes paired with brown
- Stay in One Style-a casual boot needs a casual bag, a dainty kitten heels call for a dainty purse, a sleek clutch with sleek stilettos, sneakers with a messenger bag, etc...
A great pair of shoes or a great bag keeps basic wardrobe staples updated and fresh!
