Shoe lovers everywhere will agree that a pair of statement shoes are the ideal accessory to elevate any outfit from standard to head turning. Whether they’re an eye catching colour or feature intricate detailing or bold prints, shoes have the power to transform.
Consider a plain outfit consisting of black cigarette pants and a loose fitting black shirt – add a pair of statement shoes such as leopard print flats, coral courts, embellished wedges or luxurious slippers and you’ll have a great look.
For statement shoe inspiration check out a few celebrities whom we think have got it just right….
Laura Whitmore has emerged as a style icon with an edge over the past few years, teaming unusual items together but always carrying it off. Here she’s complemented a white button down shirt and shorts with skyscraper leopard print boots. We love them and the shade looks great with her blonde hair and that cool satchel.
Anne Hathaway is quite a classic dresser, most often opting for simple and chic styles, so it’s refreshing to see her add a bit of spice with these gorgeous tangerine courts. They add interest to an otherwise low key outfit, and the combination of pale pink lace with loud shoes looks great.
Cameron Diaz is a fan of skin-tight outfits which show off her athletic frame. These interesting tied blue shoes are a great colour on her tanned legs, and clash brilliantly with her red nail varnish and lipstick.
Kate Bosworth is a real style chameleon, switching from haute couture chic to Coachella hippy easily. We love this combination of sleek nude dress and eye catching red wedges. The colours blend well and a bit of matching red lipstick ties the whole look together.
The ultimate fashion icon, Sarah Jessica Parker never looks the same twice – but she’s definitely a big fan of these statement shoes, showing just how versatile eye catching pieces of footwear can be. We love the middle look particularly and what sounds like an unusual combo – Gothic princess gown and baby blue shoes – actually works really well.
