The shoe you wear can make or break your outfit. If there’s one thing I notice on women, it’s where their shoes might be off balance with the rest of their outfit.
I used to live in ballet pumps, and could never work out why high top Converse looked awful on me.
Once you understand your body shape and your individual requirements, you’ll notice how much your shoes transform the overall balance to your outfit.
You literally can’t go wrong with a plimsoll. As you know, I live in them, and while guys don’t get them, from a style point of view, THEY WORK!
They suit most body shapes, unless you have thin ankles. They work with dresses, skirts and jeans, and more importantly, they are so comfortable.
Topshop stock some beautifully embellished plimsolls as you can see.
Tilt Embellished Slip On: £30
Tucker Leopard Print: £20

The Lace Up
If you’re choosing a lace up trainer and you’re a curvy girl, try to choose one that has a thicker sole. Traditional Converse are really bad for curvy girls because they make the feet look too narrow in comparison to the rest of the body.
Try some of these instead. If you’re not curvy then you can experiment more with a lace up than a plimsoll.
Catseye Satin Trainers: £24
Caramel Flatform : £26
Coffee Lace Ups: £24
Loafers are the most underworn shoe, and not many ladies realise how flattering they are. They’re great for work with a pair of tapered black trousers, or a pair of skinny jeans, tee and a blazer at weekends.
Lily Suede Tassel Loafers: £32
Liberty Studded Loafers: £29
Ladybird Patent Loafers: £29
Loco Chain Trim Loafers: £32
