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:
- Can you find your “center piece” or do your eyes wander, unable to land on something specific?
- 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!
