How To Wear Loafers

Image Source

Loafers have been around for quite a long time. In fact, the first loafers appeared in the mid 1930′s as casual shoes in Norway. They were, and until now are, flat shoes with tassels instead of shoe strings. They are considered flats, but what distinguishes them from the others is that they are typically constructed with a moccasin construction and have tassels as embellishments.

Given that they’re casual flats with masculine and rugged details, here comes the big question for girly girls: Just how do you wear them?

Dresses

Loafers look adorable when paired with floral dresses or earth-toned numbers. These slip-ons are very comfortable to wear when going around town to do errands or buy groceries. Shopping? You could do that too.

Tops

Loafers are versatile enough to be worn with any casual top. Dressier tops, those that are made of silk, chiffon, or lace, are typically more difficult to pair with loafers, unless you can tone it down with a casual khaki bottom, jeans or harem pants. Thus, we need to exercise prudence when making things dressier with loafers. They are made for casual wear, not for showy outfits.

Bottoms

Loafers are made for casual wear, so it’s best paired with khaki pants, jeans, bermudas, shorts, three-quarter pants or capris. You should never paired them with formal work-wear like working pants or pencil skirts, as they will look totally out of place.  They look best when worn with casual bottom pieces that emphasize the legs, such as skinny jeans, mini skirts or shorts. If you want to avoid the overly casual weekend look of flip-flops and sandals, loafers can add a slight ‘formal’ touch to your look. Throw a blazer or cardigan over your top to give your look an extra oomph, and you can even wear this look to office on casual Fridays.

In conclusion, just because they don’t come in whimsical colors doesn’t mean that they can’t be any more fun than your ballet flats or your pumps. Loafers are staple pieces in your wardrobe, so make sure that you get your hands on a pair. Wear them with dresses, shorts, or wear them with skinny jeans- it’s your call. Nevertheless, it will not leave you looking like you lack style factor. In fact, they’re a pair of stylish shoes by themselves.

Black Friday Shoe Specials At Macy’s

Black Friday is here! For every savvy online shopper, black Friday is THE sale that shouldn’t be missed, because its the time where you can stock up on necessities, Christmas gifts and your other desires at a bargain. If you are looking for that special deal and amazing promos, Macy’s might just be worth the place to stop by. We popped over to the shoes section to have a look and immediately fell in love with some of these bargains here:

1) Off-white boots

These are great for creating a chic monochrome fall look. Off-white is not a strong color like pure white and they are easier to match. Simply layer a black cardigan or black V-neck sweater over a crisp white shirt, preferably leaving the cuffs uncovered, then wear a black skirt knee-length pencil skirt with black leggings and slip into a pair of off-white boots as such. The focus here is on the boots, so you will need to wear mostly black clothing to balance it out. The white shirt plays a supporting role and helps to make you look less dull. Voila! You’ve just nailed the look.

2) Glam Shoes For Christmas

What’s a better time than now to shop for a new pair of glam shoes for the upcoming Christmas party? This pair of peep-toe rhine-stones studded black booties might add that touch of bling that you need. It goes with a lot of outfits, such as dark blue/black skinny jeans worn with glam gold flowy tops, or a short dark purple mini dress. The trick here is to choose a bolder and brighter color outfit (think navy blue, red, silver or shimmery tops). Unless you are in for that all-black look, you do not want to look dull for Christmas. Remember to paint your toe-nails before you wear them!

3) Nude Pumps With Golden Toe Caps

These are gorgeous beyond words! Nude pumps are the in thing now and is fast becoming a necessity item every woman should have. Reason being it works fantastically in helping you to elongate your legs and giving the illusion of added height to your frame. The gold toe-caps add a bit of glam factor to the shoes, and with the interesting little zips on it, they stand out from the rest. They are so easy to match and practically go well anything. Wear them with your shift dresses, pencil skirts, below-knee or knee-length flowy skirts. You can also be adventurous in wearing bright colors or prints with it. Just don’t wear nude color clothes or clothing with color close to your skin tone, otherwise it will make you sallow and plain ‘nude’.

 

4) Classic Hounds-tooth Slingbacks

Hounds-tooth is a classic and evergreen design. Many designers like to use them (e.g. Chanel) and they never go out of style. Every woman should own a hounds-tooth item – scarf, pants, dress or shoes like the one below. They are very appropriate for work and might just help to boost your career by giving you a polished look. To be safe, you can wear them with black pencil skirts, black pants or white skirts and pants. Earth tones like grey or dark brown will go well with it too. The only thing you want to avoid when wearing hounds-tooth shoes is prints. If worn incorrectly, the prints on your outfit might clash with the hounds tooth prints, which can easily result in a cluttered and confusing image that can be detrimental to your career.

Pompous Platform Pumps!

If there’s a footwear equivalent of the little black dress, it’s the ever-trustworthy pumps that every woman must have in her shoe collection. Pumps come with a closed back and a covered cap. But what differentiates platform pumps from every other pumps in the market? Simple, really. The only difference is that platform pumps have a platform at the sole of the shoe that elevates or gives more height to the wearer. They are similar to platform shoes but without the chunkiness of traditional platform shoes or wedges. These beauties are great to wear with almost anything- from mini skirts to shorts to dresses and jeans.

 Style

There are a variety of platform pumps out there for every outfit that you could think of. For example, there are peep-toe platform pumps where there is a tiny cut-out at the tip of the shoe where beautiful pedicured nails can be revealed. The shoe caps can also be in round, pointy or square shape.

How to Wear

Wearing pompous platform pumps are all about style. You can wear them with almost any outfit, blouse, or bottom. They make legs look especially long when worn with super short shorts and mini skirts. They also make your legs shapelier when worn with leggings, jeggings, or skinny jeans. They add height when you wear them with trousers or straight cut jeans. Lastly, they look elegant when worn with skirts and dresses.

Precautions

Platform pumps are categorized as high heels, and are higher than the normal pumps. Therefore, a little precaution should be taken when wearing them. Take great care when running or pacing quickly with them on. To prevent sore feet, there are cushions that you can buy and insert into the soles of the shoes. They give your feet ample support and prevent them from sliding down the shoes and hurting your toes. Lastly, choose a pair that fits snuggly on your feet. Your feet should not be sliding up or down during walking. Neither should the shoe get left behind. An ill-fitting pair of heels will make your feet hurt later on. Getting the right fit might be a challenge, but I assure you that it will look and feel just as stunning.

Casual, dressy, or ultra formal- whatever the occasion, platform pumps are surely one of the must-haves that will make your outfit more elegant and giving you the extra boost in height. They are not just great for work wear, but also versatile enough for gala events or night-outs in the clubs.

Go Crazy with Ankle Booties

There’s always a great shoe for every girl. Size and shape doesn’t matter- all you need is a fabulous pair of shoes to complement any outfit. One of the modern staples every woman should have in her shoe collection are ankle booties or more commonly known as ankle boots.

Ankle boots are perfect for cool weather, say, spring time or autumn. These cowboy inspired fashion statements are just that- attention seeking pieces that make an outfit a little rugged. But like every fashion item, there are rules to follow that will make these babies enhance or even make a statement on how you look.  Here’s a run-down.

Structure

Ankle boots are boots cut up to the ankle bone. Some fashion houses design them with wedge heels; others prefer to give them stiletto heels. Some styles can be folded to shorten the length. Others have details such as ribbons and metallic studs. Bold, metallic zippers are common multi-functional accessories that make putting the shoes on and taking them off easy. Another way of doing this is by using lace-ups. Most of the time, they are either made of suede or leather which makes them warm and comfortable enough to wear in cold weather.

How to wear Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are fairly easy to style with. As they are an accessory on their own, you need an outfit that shows them off. These boots are made to be worn with slender bottoms, so you’d do the designers a favor by showing them off with a pair of skinny jeans, leggings, or tights. Contrasting colors work, or simply a hue that brings out the shade of the shoe.

One thing you should also keep in mind is that ankle boots emphasize the ankles, so it’s best worn with those who have slender calves and ankles. This is because it cuts off a visual chunk of your legs. If they’re on the chubby side, you’d have a difficult time making them look slender. For those on the curvier side, a longer length would suit you better.

You can also wear these pretty little booties with dresses- just make sure that they are the proper length. The ideal length for this type of boots ranges from mini to 2 inches above the knee. Any longer and the hemline would shorten your legs visually. The nice thing about wearing them with dresses is that they make your legs look longer while keeping your feet warm.

Ankle boots are something that will dress up any outfit immediately. In fact, it has been a popular go-to shoe that fashion-savvy women pair with skinnies and dresses. With the many designs out there, ankle booties are most definitely a mainstay in fashion. They’re adorable and petite, but they pack a big punch when it comes to styling an entire wardrobe.

Ribbon Shoes By Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton Fashion

Paris Hilton

At the mention of Paris Hilton, the first thoughts that came to mind are probably along the lines of a rich heiress, fashionista, a socialite living the high life or maybe even a blonde airhead to some. Her popularity in showbiz is also underrated, as people see her rise to fame not because of her talent or hard work, but rather from her notorious lifestyle and wealthy background. Apart from being a celebrity, many of us are probably not aware that she’s also a businesswoman in the fashion industry.

In fact, Paris owns a successful line of fashion and perfumes, which were leveraged heavily on her celebrity status for the endorsement of her brand. According to Wikipedia, ‘her fragrances have reportedly earned $1.5 billion. Currently, there are 55 Paris Hilton Stores worldwide carrying a wide range of items from perfumes, purses, watches, bags, to t-shirts and shoes. Apparently, she earns over $10 million a year from her brand and is paid $300,000 for appearances in clubs and events.’

It’s hard to describe how her stuff look like because there isn’t a distinctive style tied to her brand. Apart from a couple of eye-catching fragrances, her handbags and watches are nothing to shout about.

One thing that caught our attention though, is her line of pretty ribbon shoes that could easily be the ‘it’ product from her brand. They are not just great for the casual days at work, but also for partying where they can add fun and creativity to your outlook. If you are a jeans and tee kind of girl, wearing a pair of ribbon pumps as such will give your outfit an instant boost.

It’s definitely the fun and girly kind of shoes that every girl must have in their shoe rack.

Everyday in Ballet Flats

If there’s one thing that Audrey Hepburn is known for, it’s for being the most iconic fashionable woman. One thing she is particularly known for is for popularizing are ballet flats.

Ballet flats are a very versatile pair of shoes. For one thing, they’re comfortable enough to wear everyday to work, while doing errands, or simply going about town. They are an affordable addition to your shoe collection as well. In addition to being a staple in every woman’s closet, ballet flats have a good celebrity following  ranging from musicians to actresses and reality stars. Why does it have such a huge fan base?

Ballet flats are typically made for walking.  The most important factor to consider when buying ballet flats is to check how it feels on your feet. The good ones fit snugly and follow the contour of your foot. They are also made with proper cushioning at the sole so that walking isn’t much of a chore for your dainty feet.

When choosing a pair, there are many things you have to consider. Remember that choosing which shoes to wear is like choosing an outfit- it has to go with everything you already have. Here are some things you might want to keep in mind.

Style

There are plenty of styles to choose from, but you might want to go for classic colors such as red, navy, black, and nude. They can be embellished or as plain as a canvas, but make sure that they are understated so that they go well with all the clothes in your closet.

Ballet flats are inspired from ballet shoes that dancers wear with their tutus. Thus, there is only one shape for the front- rounded. Pointy toes aren’t considered ballet flats; they are simply called flats. They are different from moccasins and oxfords. The former is made of suede and is usually brown while the latter is made of leather and has straps.

Ballet flats, in conclusion, have round toes that are either embellished or plain. They can be made of genuine or faux leather depending on the model.

Occasion

Flats used to be categorized as casual wear. With the progress that is fashion, we now see them in the office, at weddings, and even in cocktail parties. Darker colors with bejeweled fronts or lace work best with formal wear. Light colors, pastels, and dainty ribbons and prints are great to wear during casual weekends.

How To Wear Them

This kind of shoe works well for ladies with small feet and slender ankles. The shape of the shoe emphasizes a dainty foot, so it is best worn with outfits that exude femininity.

They look their best with mini skirts, A-lines, and tea-length skirts and dresses. They also enhance the silhouette of a body-hugging dress or a pencil skirt. For jeans, you might want to go on the more slender side. They look especially adorable when worn with straight cuts and skinny jeans. If you’re on the short side, go to full lengths. Otherwise, if you have the height, capris paired with this kind of shoe is so vintage.

Go on, experiment with different colors, looks, and styles. You can never go wrong with these shoes.
