Dress Them Up or Down | Shoes

Posted on June 23 2016

Shoes that can dress up or down an outfit are essential to any flexible wardrobe! Take a look at our go-to approaches for having a relaxed or updated look by choosing the perfect pair of shoes!


1. Swap your combat boots or sneakers out for booties, wedges, or heels when you wear a solid, graphic, or patterned tee with jeans or cutoffs. Want more tips? Let your feet breath a little in your booties by throwing on shorts, a skirt, or a romper.

The caged and studded pumps vibe with the punk-rock tees while also classing it up with the stiletto heels.

2. If you feel underdressed in a simple tee and jeans combo, add a fresh update to your look with pumps and structured pieces like a blazer or trench coat. Or look more polished by trading your jeans or jean shorts out for chinos.

The minimalist, neutral-toned shoe, the pop-of-color earrings, and the structured trench are the subtle fresh updates to this basic alternative look.
