Fool Proof Way To Style Statement Heels.

Today’s post is covering one major trend: bright statement heels. This cute top joined my closet a few weeks ago with the sole intention of wearing it with these shoes. I scored these shoes at the beginning of last summer at Payless for $10 and am always buying things that I know will match. I just love them so much, okay? Special thanks, as always, to my sweet friend and world’s best photographer: Michelle Peterson! (she is doing a giveaway RIGHT NOW so go and enter, you beautiful bride-to-be’s!)

3 Tips To Styling An Embroidered Top & Statement Heels

STEP ONE: Choose the right jeans.

When styling heels with jeans, choosing the right jeans will make a WORLD of difference. I always choose skinny jeans when putting together outfits like this because it puts the focus entirely on the shoe. And obviously, with a statement shoe, the purpose of this outfit is for people to look at and admire your shoes. They should be the centerpiece of the outfit! You look dang good, girl. Kill it.

STEP TWO: Choose the right color.

There are a few tried and true statement colors that I have discovered work with nearly every skin tone. Red, coral, hot pink, violet, and cobalt blue. They are bright enough that they are bold on every skin tone and hair color. For this outfit, I chose neon coral to be my statement color. It is bright against the white/black shirt combination and it is a nice contrasting color to the baby blue of my jeans. I toyed with pairing it with crimson heels and a matching lip, but decided to wait until fall to pull out my reds. Coral just screams summer.

STEP THREE: Accessorize.

Because this shirt is so busy, I had to be careful when choosing what necklace to go with it. This black and gold statement necklace is just the right balance between being visible and not being distracting. I didn’t want to wear something too loud because my shoes and lips scream for themselves. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by your outfit. It can be really easy to over accessorize. Use these two questions when styling an outfit to decide if you have one too many accessories on:

  1. Can you find your “center piece” or do your eyes wander, unable to land on something specific?
  2. Does your body look to “heavy” on any certain area because of too many pieces of jewelry? (left arm +5 bracelets, right arm + no bracelets/rings = lopsided. TIP: even your arm party out with some rings on the other hand!!

So that’s it! My foolproof way to style statement shoes so you can look like the goddess we all know you are. I really loved putting this outfit together because it screams summer to me. Neon lips and shoes will always be one of my favorite trademarks of this season. It is so easy for every person to pull it off and look amazing that I always wonder why more people don’t embrace it!! My challenge to you this week is to try one look you don’t think you can pull off. Whether it be bold lips, a sexy cat eye or this statement heel look, the sky is the limit. My goal is to prove to you girls that you can be beautiful in every trend and that getting out of your shell when it comes to fashion and style is the best way to discover who you really are. SO. Pick a style, try it out and then tag me on instagram with the finished look. I can’t WAIT to see what you ladies choose!

    I love this whole look! I stay away from statement heels since I always feel like I dont style them right! Great tips here!

  20. Amanda Cross | 25th Jul 17

    Loved this entire look! Everything here is so pretty! I love that you kept the entire outfit pretty neutral because it allowed your heels to really stand out. I also really love your jeans. I have been buying a lot more light wash jeans lately. Dark wash will probably always be my #1, but you can do so much with light wash jeans!

  21. Anali Martinez | 25th Jul 17

    LOVE HOW YOU STYLED THOSE HEELS! I have a bunch of statement heels that I don’t know what to wear with! Thanks for the post!

  22. Melissa | 25th Jul 17

    I usually gravitate to those same bright heel colors, so I can definitely appreciate the tip about choosing the right colors. I’m not too great at accessorizing so I will have to try the trick where you see what your eye is drawn toward so I’m not doing too much.

  23. Melissa Damon-Moore | 25th Jul 17

    Your lipstick shade is so perfect!

  24. Kelsie Sabers | 25th Jul 17

    I absolutely love the outfit! Everything works perfectly together! I love a bold pop of color with more neutral pieces.

  25. ShootingStarsMag | 25th Jul 17

    Thanks for sharing! I can’t wear heels – they hurt my feet too much, but I do love how people style them sometimes.

  26. Safaniya Stevenon | 25th Jul 17

    Beautifully styled! I love how your heels match your lip. The fit of those jeans is amazing on you and really shoes off the shoe! LOVE!

  27. Megan | 25th Jul 17

    These heels are gorgeous. That colour is one of my absolute favourites. It’s funny cause sometimes I catch myself strutting around in heels and I think how am I old enough to be wearing heels. I still feel like a little girl dressing up in my mom’s shoes!

  28. Ruthie Ridley | 25th Jul 17

    Styled to perfection and I lOVE the color!!!

  29. Kimberly | 25th Jul 17

    Love your tips! Definitely adore the outfit you put together in your photo shoot. I love putting statement colors with whites/blacks just so it stands out.

    xo, Kimberly

  30. Autum | 25th Jul 17

    Love how you styled this! Those heels are the perfect touch

  31. Lee Anne | 25th Jul 17

    So cute, girl! Love the pop of color for summer.

  32. Kristen | 25th Jul 17

    You look amazing girl and I love your whole outfit! These were really helpful tips, I definitely have a few “statement heels” in my wardrobe that I need to break out more often ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Amy | 25th Jul 17

    Such a cute outfit! I’m not able to wear heels at the moment, but I’m looking forward to when I can again! Definitely marking this page to come back to.

  34. Jenny | 25th Jul 17

    Those heels are so fun! I have a fun pair of cheetah statement heels that I love to rock.

  35. Christie Brown | 25th Jul 17

    I’m such a lover of statement heels (the colour of these ones are gorgeous!!). I think that if you can style a pair without the outfit looking too “busy” or “mismatched”, then you’re pretty much set for life haha. Loving your whole outfit, girl!

    Christie’s Take on Life. xx

  36. Amanda @ The Light Owl | 25th Jul 17

    I LOVE your outfit!! Statement heels are my favorite! I had Achilles tendinitis in both of my heels/ankles. When I woke up in the morning I seriously walked around like an old lady because it felt like my tendons were going to snap. I’ve basically given up heels at this point which makes me so sad. But it had to be done! I have found some great statement flats in exchange!

  37. Mistle | 25th Jul 17

    Skinny jeans and heels are a must! You are killing this look!!!

  38. fazeelah | 26th Jul 17

    I wore heels the other day and it was complete torture they were cute though and i felt like a lady LOL you are rocking this look girl

  39. Courtney CJ | 26th Jul 17

    I love the color of your shoes. I have to admit that even though I haven’t gone shoe shopping in a year, I would definitely pick those up. If I get this new job I am going to have to severely step my shoe game up so I appreciate any tips I can get.

  40. HauteBeautyGuide | 26th Jul 17

    Your outfit is adorable! I love how the pumps give a pop of color! Super cute! Xx-Doran@HauteBeautyGuide
