HOW TO UPDATE YOUR SHOES
How To Get The Latest Looks in Shoes On The Cheap
When we think about changing the look of our shoes, most may think about purchasing a pair of white satin pumps and dying them a certain color to match a bridesmaid gown; however, there are now other ways to change the appearance of your shoes! You may be thinking, “Why would I want to change the look of the shoes that I adore?” The reason being is that you want to change the look so that it fits in this season’s hottest trends. You may be seeing a lot of shoes with elaborate gems, fabric and feathers showcased on them, and you can achieve this look too without spending outside of your budget!
How To Update Your Shoes: Add a Little Fabric
While many women love ankle booties, a newer look is the motorcycle boot that crawls up just a little higher on the ankle. Instead of worrying about tossing your booties aside and going out and buying these taller boots, you can instantly achieve this look by purchasing some fun fabric and tying it along your shoe and ankle so that it looks like you have a boot on with a funky design. For example, amp up your look of jean leggings, a long tee and jacket with a pair of your booties with zebra printed fabric wrapped along the ankle of the bootie. You are fashion forward by staying within your budget!
How To Update Your Shoes: Feathers
Who doesn’t love the look of feathers? This season feathers have made their way on shoes on runways and magazine spreads, so of course we all want to achieve this stunning look. You could purchase a pair of expensive designer stilettos with feathers, but you can also purchase feather clip ons to actually place on your sandals for an instant upgrade. Even better, go to your craft store and make your own feather clips! Clip these feathers on the ankle strap of your sandals or the front of your pumps and you will easily achieve this season’s hot new look. Even better, go to your craft store and make your own feather clips!
How To Update Your Shoes: Fringe
Another look that has really hit the runways is fringe shoes and this can easily be achieved by simply purchasing fringe accessories that securely button around your ankle and lightly fall down to the shoe so it looks as though it is actually a part of the pair that you are currently wearing. What can be easier than that?
When it comes to accessories for shoes, there are tons to choose from. Whether you want fabric, fringe or even a little something that sparkles, you can pick clip-ons to wear on the shoes that you already love and own and can instantly transform your plain black pumps into something fun, wild and trendy. Ready to have the classic black shoes back? That can easily be done by removing the accessories without ruining your shoes whatsoever. So go ahead and add a little spice to your shoes!
