Knowing which style of shoes suits you best can sometimes be difficult to work out, and along the way, you are certain to make many mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes may be a blessing in disguise, and the shoes turn out to be ideal for your sense of dress, however, more often than not, this is not the case, and you have simply wasted money on shoes you will never wear again.
Several characteristics make for a perfect shoe, look and style are only part of the issue, and shoes must be comfortable too. Believe it or not, comfort actually impacts a great deal on style. If shoes are uncomfortable, then the wearer’s posture and gait change, often resulting in a stumbling, unsightly walk. Wearing comfortable shoes, knowing that you look good, and holding a good posture all contribute to a general sense of confidence, and, because confidence is attractive, this is the ideal. Many people believe it is difficult to find shoes that look great, and feel great too, but many styles of fashionable shoes that have both qualities exist: espadrilles and loafers are two such examples. The difficulty comes in knowing how to wear these shoes in a fashionable way.
Fortunately, with both espadrilles and loafers, there are many suitable fashions. They are extremely versatile as a style of footwear, suiting people of all ages, and both formal, and informal occasions. For instance, they go well with the preppy look, currently popular amongst teenagers and young adults. Team with a pair of skinny or straight-leg, but well-fitted, jeans, a white t-shirt, and a chequered shirt, and you will look fantastic. An added bonus that comes from wearing espadrilles is the flair they can add to an outfit. Generally, the cut of the shoes are always the same, however, there is a great variety in the colour, pattern, and material of the uppers; there are chequered materials (great for coordinating with your preppy shirt), bright bold colours (great for adding character to a subdued fashion style).
These shoes tend also to have a unisex feel to them; this means that they suit male and female fashions. Women can buy espadrilles, and team them with a wide variety of styles. For example, skinny jeans, a floating t-shirt, and cardigan, teamed with a pair of pink shoes, will look incredibly feminine, as well as highly fashionable and unique. A great look for the up and coming spring and summer fashion season.
