So you bought the perfect pair of pink shoes, you are totally in love with them, but you have no clue what to wear them with. Don’t fret – putting together an outfit to wear with pink shoes can seem like a daunting task, but with a few simple tips you’ll be sporting your new shoes in style in no time.
Here are some ideas for how to wear pink shoes…and look great doing it.
The great thing about pink shoes is that they are an easy way to add a feminine feeling to just about any outfit without looking like you are trying or being overdone. A lot of determining how to wear pink shoes has to do with the shade of pink.
Soft pink shoes in shades like dusty pink, nude or mauve can act almost as a neutral since the color is not overly saturated. Try pairing shoes in these shades with other neutrals like black, brown, khaki or navy to soften the look of the outfit and give it a subtle feminine feeling.
These shades also look great with other muted tones like soft blue, green or lavender. Choosing a pink shoe in a more muted tone will give your outfit a more sophisticated feel without being boring or stuffy.
More saturated shades of pastel pink like cotton candy pink, apple blossom pink or rose can be a little trickier to work with. If you don’t pair these shades with the right outfit you can look a little bit too childish. When buying shoes in these colors opt for classier, more grown up styles.
Try wearing them with colors like white, yellow or aqua to create a bright, springy feeling. Pastel pink shoes would look great with a denim skirt and a casual top in a shade of blue, green, aqua or yellow. It’s generally a good idea to avoid wearing a pastel pink shirt that matches the shoes exactly or you will look a little bit too matched.
Bright pink shoes in shades of hot pink, fuchsia, lipstick pink or magenta can be a lot of fun to wear and can really make a strong statement. When wearing bright shoes it is generally a good idea to keep the rest of your outfit fairly neutral so you don’t look like a box of crayons.
Dark neutrals like black, brown or navy look fab with a bright pink shoe. Another great way to wear a bright pink shoe is to choose one other bright color to wear in your outfit like bright yellow or turquoise. The key is to keep things simple and allow your shoes to be the focal point of your outfit.
Although it is definitely not necessary, you can help to tie any shade of pink shoe into your outfit by wearing an accessory like a scarf, bag or belt higher up on your body that matches or compliments it.
Pink shoes in any shade are a fun, flirty accessory that can make even a boring outfit look great. Don’t be afraid to play around and experiment with wearing your pink shoes with a variety of different color combinations or styles. Remember, fashion should be fun…not boring!
