Christian Dior, the legendary fashion designer, once said, “You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.” And, rightly so!
You can’t get your look right unless you’ve got your shoes right, and especially so if it’s a formal occasion — be it a wedding reception, cocktail party, or perhaps a business meeting.
Here are our top five styles of formal shoes:
You can never go wrong with pumps. They can safely be termed as ‘classics’ and can never get old or passé. You can wear them with your LBD, pencil skirt, A-line dress, pants, just about any and every Western attire.
If you want to add some height to yourself, and don’t want to do so with pencil heels or stilettos, then wedges could be your best pick. Wedges promise to make you look taller and give you the confidence sans the stress that you may just miss a step or, even worse, trip.
Black block formal shoes will instantly add an element of professionalism to your demeanor. So, if you need to make that important presentation, or impress a potential client, pairing your formal pants with black blocks is a great idea.
Here’s another style of formal shoes that goes perfectly well with the corporate-style Western attire. Quite a unisex style in many ways, the formal lace-ups look great even when teamed with a pair of denim and a semi-formal shirt.
An Indian woman probably looks her best in ethnic clothes. And, in fact, if Western clothes aren’t your thing, then wearing a formal salwar kameez or sari for a business meeting is just perfect. Depending on the occasion, you could even play with the colors and comfortably opt for a subtle red, green, or any other shade, once in a while. From flats to kitten heels and wedges, the options are endless.
So, get ready to look chic from head-to-toe, because the occasion demands it!
