The 8 practical tips for buying the right evening shoes

For me, shoes had always been the most important part of my outfit.

Finding the right evening shoes may look simple, but it is not so simple. Here is how I handle it.

Evening Shoes. Dressy Shoes. Gold Shoes.

1. Shop online

Since I am a very busy person and don't have time to spend hours in a shopping mall, I use the Internet. Today I buy more things online than in a regular store. Are prices better? Yes. More variety? Yes. Reviews people leave are a big help. Plus, I love when packages are shipped directly to my home.

2. Look for good arch support

When buying dressy shoes, I am always looking for shoes that are comfortable to wear and provide excellent arch support. How do I know buying shoes online that they are comfortable? I read online reviews and look for the words "comfort" and "good arch support." When somebody mentions that shoes are uncomfortable, very stiff, or don't stretch, I skip them no matter how pretty they look or how reasonable the price is.

3. Shoes for outdoor parties

Many summer parties are outdoors, and you don’t want your stilettos to get stuck between the racks or in the grass. So, it is better to wear evening shoes with thicker heels.

4. Clear strap shoes

The clear strap shoes are becoming so popular that some people feel they soon become a new classic. If you want to slim your legs and ankles and look in general taller, clear strap shoes are the way to go.

The clear strap shoes are versatile, and you can wear them everywhere during the day or at night.

5. Selecting colors

Classic black or dark brown pumps will work with almost any outfit. If you want to spice up your party dress, wear a leopard print or hot pink shoes. Also, the gold evening shoes would make an exciting addition to your wardrobe.

6. Buy suede shoes for more comfort

If you are looking for shoes that stretch easily, buy suede shoes. Plus, the suede shoes always look dressy, and if you purchase them in black, brown, and beige colors, you could wear them with any outfit, jeans, or party dress.

7. Look for shoes with leather lining

Buying shoes with leather inside is always a good idea unless you are looking for shoes for the pool party or the beach. The leather is a natural material; it is breathable and flexible. The plastic or synthetic lining inside the shoes feels cold on the skin and somewhat unnatural.

8. Follow micro trends

Shoe styles for women change every season or two. I call these trends a micro-trend because they don't last long. To follow the latest micro-trend is always fun. But at the end of the day, you wear what looks good on you and makes you feel good.
