Pair your footwear right!

Actress Marilyn Monroe said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

We girls love our shoes. You probably have several pairs of shoes, but how are you supposed to pair them right? Do brown shoes look good with black jeans? What about flats? What’s the right occasion to wear your white heels? When should you avoid those colourful flats? Pairing shoes with outfits can be tricky. A pair of shoes can dress up or dress down your outfits.

We all need some help with styling our shoes. Every pair should be worn a certain way. You can’t wear heels with shorts and gladiators with jeans! Every pair of shoes has dos and don’ts.

Pair them with something relaxed and floral.
