I was creating some outfit sets on Polyvore when I stumbled upon some adorable shoes by L.K Bennet. If you didn't know, one of my favorite brand of shoes is L.K Bennet (with Steve Madden being my other favorite brand), as their shoes are the perfect mix of classic and trendy. The first pair that I simply fell in love with was a pair of coral bow court shoes that would be perfect for a garden party, summer wedding, or for church on Sunday. I've included an outfit styling idea for them below -- which I must say, is one of my favorite outfits ever that I've created on Polyvore!
A great way to have your colored shoes "pop" and to add a bit of character to your outfit, is to pair them with an awesome floral dress. Now, your floral dress should have the color of your shoes in it too (like the above dress, where it has some of the same coral within the flowers). If you need to cover your arms (since the dress I picked out is sleeveless) or if the weather is on the cooler side, you can pair a jean jacket with the dress. Of course, if it is a more formal event a cardigan or blazer will do nicely instead. Add a classic brown leather handbag, wayfarers, and some classic styled drop earrings and your outfit is perfect!
Perhaps a more trendy outfit with some vintage touches is more your style? Then try out this beautiful outfit for either a luncheon with your girlfriends, an evening of shopping, or to the office (if your job is in a more artistic setting). Take a pair of bold cobalt blue court shoes (or any bold color of your choice), pair them with a basic colored skirt (like a cream or white) and a silky/chiffon type blouse with a fun print (like this bird one). The combination of the fun blouse print and bold court shoes is what makes the outfit that perfect mix of trendy & vintage. Too keep the outfit from becoming too trendy (or vintage), add some classic accessories to the look, like the following: diamond post earrings, leather cross-body, and a jean jacket. Of course, there is room to add one more vintage inspired & trendy piece to your outfit, the watch and statement necklace are perfect examples on how to do this.
