Fashionable Shoe Buying Tips

Love buying shoes? Here are some note worthy tips on your disposal from our Fashion Editors.

If you want to look great, buying the right accessories is essential. These items are what finishes an outfit off, and creates your overall look. Therefore, it is always worth spending a bit of cash on buying the right shoes, handbag and jewellery. Today’s post is all about finding women’s shoes that are comfortable and affordable, as well as great looking and made to last.

Read our tips after the jump:
Buy online

My first tip is to do your shoe shopping online, whenever you can. Retailers are far better at providing sizing information than they used to be. Most now list the EU as well as the UK sizes and many now offer you a range of width fittings. This makes it far easier to find shoes that fit well.

If you do decide to buy online, it is usually wise to stick to buying the styles that you normally wear. These are more likely to fit and not pinch in all the wrong places, or give you blisters.

Buying online gives you a far better choice, and makes it far easier to shop around for the right deal. However, you need to be careful to buy from those sites that offer a fair returns policy. The last thing you need is to have to pay the postage to send anything that you do not like back to the retailer.

Getting inspiration

As the seasons change, most of us like to change things up a bit and try a new look. Doing so helps to keep your style current and teaches you more about what suits you as you get older and your figure changes.

If you want to try out a new look, and are not sure what type of shoes will work with your new style, the best approach is to go online and browse through some fashion sites like this one. While there, you can take note of the style of footwear the models are wearing with the kinds of dresses and skirts you like. Remember to save the images, so that you can refer to them later and print them off if you need to.

Colour co-ordination

When you buy a pair of shoes, it makes sense to buy something that you can wear with more than just one outfit. The key to being able to do this is to choose neutral colours. Of course, for a special occasion like a wedding, you can still splash the cash and buy a pair of shoes that are the exact same shade as your outfit.

How you are going to be using your new shoes

You also need to think about when and where you will be wearing your shoes. Naturally, if you are going to be standing or walking a lot comfort is a more important consideration than it would be if you were just going to wear them around the office.

By following these simple tips, you will end up wearing shoes that look fantastic, fit well and are not too expensive.
