Black shoes do NOT go with everything!
My BIGGEST fashion don’t – and I use the term fashion loosely – since I believe style is about you… there are just things that don’t go together and that’s black shoes with a solid color item of clothing. In my post on ten staple items to have, black pumps are indeed on the list BUT not with everything. Why do think the shoe greats like Steve Madden, Aldo, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin created more than one color shoe? Nude or floral printed pumps (in season or not) are just as staple. It “grinds my gears” when I see women with a yellow dress and black pumps when it would go NICER with a pair of nude pumps. I see this mainly in my line of work, but even at Sweet 16s, Weddings, and another formal occassion I’ve seen this happen all too often. The myth of black goes with everything died when they started making different color shoes. Fashion tip: you can wear black with ANYTHING that already has black in it. Bring out the black; accentuate the black. Don’t add it if it doesn’t belong there.
