What is the best way to wear patent leather shoes?

Lacquer shoes look bright, but it is not always appropriate. And if you wear it wrong, the image may become overly catchy or even vulgar. And in order not to become a "laughing stock", find out how to wear such shoes correctly.

When lacquer shoes are appropriate, who will it suit?

Lacquer shoes are suitable for bright people who have their own unique and original style. But conservatives and those who prefer restraint and rigor in everything, it is better to refuse this option.

Such shoes look very bright, and therefore it will be appropriate only in special cases. For example, to work in the office or on business meetings, it is undesirable to walk in it. But for going to the theater, for a party, meeting with friends or for another unofficial event, this option is just fine.

How to make a choice?

What to look for when choosing a patent shoe?

  1. What exactly to get? If you doubt that this option will suit you, but really want to find out,then start with miniature and elegant shoes, which will help create an image of a real lady, ladies from high society or even a female vamp. If you want something more modest and romantic, then buy lacquered ballet flats. But lacquered boots fit only the most courageous, because they certainly will not go unnoticed and will literally catch the eye.
  2. Decide on the model. At once it is worth noting that women's patent leather shoes should not be too rough, so massive soles, numerous straps, locks and rivets will have to be forgotten. The nose should not be wide, but excessively narrow and elongated will look ridiculous. The ideal option would be triangular or rounded. As for heels, it is appropriate as a stable (but not too thick), and studs. But the sole may well be flat, but not thick and rough.
  3. Decorative items. They are not needed at all, because shoes and so will stand out at the expense of their gloss, so additional decoration will be just superfluous and inappropriate.
  4. Colour. It is very important! The classic and versatile option is, of course, black.Beige will do as well, it will make the image more romantic, feminine and restrained, as it slightly mutes the gloss and shine. Lacquer red shoes look bold and bright, so fit only the most courageous. And to create an original image, you can pick up more interesting tones, for example, yellow, blue, pink, purple, orange, mint.

  • Shoes can be added with another accessory, also lacquered. This may be a thin strap or clutch. In any case, such a detail should not be too massive and catchy.
  • Lacquer shoes in itself is a bright accent of the image, so give up things of complex cut.
  • Particular attention should be paid to the material from which the clothes are made. The abundance of gloss and glitter will make the image vulgar and very catchy. To avoid this, choose things from simple and non-iridescent fabrics. It can be knitwear, cotton, chiffon, batiste, viscose, jersey, cashmere and so on.
  • With lacquer shoes, it is advisable to wear only monophonic things. Moreover, the set should contain no more than three colors, otherwise the image will become overloaded and variegated.
  • You should not wear lacquer shoes with short skirts and dresses, it looks vulgar.
  • Clothes should be simple, that is, almost not decorated. The gloss and shine of the shoes will be quite enough to give a highlight to the image, so forget about lace, ruffles, rhinestones, stones, ruffles and other decorative elements.
  • Pay attention and choice of accessories. Pick a discreet but elegant. If you wear jewelry, choose concise and do not overdo it with the quantity. One string of pearls on the neck and two small pearls in the ears in the form of earrings-carnations will be enough. Large bracelets, thick chains and bulk pendants will be inappropriate.
  • Hairstyle should also be appropriate, because it is an integral part of the image. Avoid complex and voluminous structures, try not to use accessories (with the exception of studs and Invisibles). You can make a neat bunch, an elegant "shell" or light romantic waves.
  • If you can not create an image and pick up your style, try to view a few photos in fashion magazines.
