How to find the right shoes for your outfit?

Be it Blair Waldorf’s closet from Gossip Girl or the closet from The Devil Wears Prada, we have all dreamt of having a closet stacked from top to bottom with shoes.

With endless styles and colors when it comes to footwear, can one really blame a woman for having this obsession?


But there’s always that one problem when it comes to footwear — how to match it perfectly with your outfit?

While you can follow the old-fashioned style of picking the same colored shoes that match the color of your outfit like the royals such as Meghan Markle seem to be a fan of, there are many other ways you can match shoes with your outfits.

Let’s first take a look at the different kinds of shoes you can have in your closet and how you can match each of them.

Types of shoes

Here are some common types of shoes you must be having in your closet:


Pumps give off an urban and chic look and thus will go on any outfit that has a chic appeal. These outfits could be anything from cigarette pants, long formal dresses, pantsuits, pencil skirts, and so on. You can even pair it up with trench coats or long fur jackets in the winter.

We often confuse pumps with stilettos. But stilettos are not necessarily closed high heels. You can pair this footwear with clothing that helps elongate your legs such as slim pants and pencil skirts making your legs look more slender and attractive.

How to choose matching shoes for your outfit?

Here are different tips you can make use of to pair your shoes with different outfits:

Try different variations of a single color

Instead of going for the exact replica of the color of your outfit, try different variations of that color. This gives you a different and modern look. Here’s how Kate Middleton chose a lighter blue color than that of her polka-dot dress.

Match patterns

While you may not have the same patterned shoes for all of your outfits, you can pair those that seem to match your outfits. For example, matching striped print heels with striped pants.

Add a dash of color to plain outfits

Pair red-colored heels with a simple black or brown dress. This will brighten up your entire look and make you look dazzling.

Opt for standard colors for professional settings

If you do not have a casual dress code at your office, opt for colors such as brown, black, grey, and navy to go with your outfits.

Opt for this color if nothing else matches

If you are confused about which colored shoes to pick, here is one color that will never fail you — nude or beige. This will give you the appearance of height and will match almost any colored outfit.

Finding the right shoes for your different outfits is no longer difficult. Save this guide for future reference and you’re all sorted.
