ALL IN THE DETAILS: Walk On The Wild Side

Sometimes, shopping for shoes can feel tiresomely repetitive; some colorful wedges here, a few sparkly flats over there and several basic Converse sneakers in that back corner. It may even get to the point where you feel as though you already own some version of every style available, if you’re a real shoe fanatic (which, really, who isn’t?). When even the most up-and-coming shoe designs are no longer exciting, it’s time to delve into the darker corners of the fashion world.

This Fashionista has brilliantly created an entire look that is centered on her ultra funky, ’70s throwback style shoes. These platform heels give her outfit that extra boost of individualism that really makes it unique. Bright white and impossible not to notice, these are the type of shoes that take command of an ensemble; they are something that you plan an outfit around, rather than vice versa. While this Fashionista has done a wonderful job of pairing an intricately detailed crop top with high-waisted cut-offs and a gorgeously flowing kimono, it was her stunning and unique shoes that first caught my attention.

Of course, it would be completely unreasonable to expect that one style of shoes could fit in with the rest of every Fashionista’s closet. Lucky for us, there are endless possibilities of shoes out there. Whether you lean more toward classic vintage, ’90s grunge or even futuristic flamboyant, there are some eye-catching shoes just waiting for you, if you look hard enough.

How To: It’s often easy to push shoe selection off to the side while deciding what to wear. You may feel as though that’s the least important aspect when determining your individual style. However, experience has shown that a pair of shoes can make or break an outfit. Find a few pairs of unique shoes that resonate with your specific style and try planning an outfit around the shoes for once; you may come up with your favorite outfit yet!
