Obviously the most important thing to consider when choosing your shoes and bag is your outfit.
Make your decision early on in your outfit selection process. What is it about the outfit that you want to be the most eye-catching? Do you want the focus to be in the dress or would you prefer your shoes to do the talking?
evening shoes and handbags are seen as fashion accessories and provide the perfect way to either liven up a rather neutral outfit or to “complete a look”. For example a peach or nude outfit looks fantastic with grey, silver or gold shoes and matching handbag. A grey outfit works marvelously with black, purple or silver shoes and bag.
In fact choosing silver shoes and handbag are often the perfect option as they can set off nearly every coloured outfit.
A neutral coloured outfit looks fabulous when it has some colour added so go for this season’s biggest fashion trend and add some neon brights to your outfit.
Conversely if it is a brightly coloured outfit that you have chosen then mix in some nude or even black shoes and bag.
If you have decided to go for a sparkly or glittery outfit then keep the shoes and bag as simple as possible, preferably without any beading or embroidery.
When thinking about carrying the shoe and bag through to the evening, patent is a great option and mixing patent with this seasons bright colours and you have the makings of a truly stunning outfit.
And don’t forget your other accessories and the part they will play. Consider the jewellery you plan to wear with the outfit. If you have a fantastic statement piece, you may want to think about keeping the shoes and bag simple. If you are wearing something delicate or simple then your shoes and bag can make the statement.
