What started as a fun experiment to invite our readers to our social media channels soon became one of the most exciting and responsive activities of Fashion Bombay. Our Share Your Feet campaign was more of a story telling campaign, we saw it all: wedding feet, nervous feet, freedom feet, even pet feet with nailpaint! This post is dedicated to all of you and who took the time to send us pictures and participated in our campaign. Feel free to browse through all the pictures here.
There are a couple of wardrobe must-haves in clothes, jewellery, bags and shoes. Today, we will discuss the shoes bit. Based on our persona likes and experience, we find ourselves reaching out for five kinds of shoes all the time. Here's the list.
Wedges: Both of us at Fashion Bombay find it next to impossible to walk in pencil heels or high heels so we stick to chunky heels, block heels and platforms. But out of all those aforementioned styles we must admit that the quintessential wedges are what we are so partial to. These not only look great with ankle pants, short dresses, shorts and maxi skirts but you can walk in them for the longest time with killing your feet.
Style Check: We prefer wooden wedges to cork and jute wedges - the former looks a tad cheap while the latter just gets dirty too easily.
Emergency flats: Love how we feel in heels but like the name suggests you sometimes just don't know where you'll end up in the day. You might be gone for a relaxed house party and then the next thing you know is that you end up drinking and bar hopping with friends. We therefore recommend keeping emergency flats with you whenever you go out. We like a nice gold of nude pastel shade for the purpose because you can wear it with anything.
Style Check: You've seen the elastic flats that simply fold into your fist, that's the ones we like because their the easiest to carry. You can wear them like regular ballerinas too.
Flat buckle sandals: Love the gladiator styles, thong flats and animal prints on these footwear. Pick this style in a bright shade to add a pop of colour to any outfit and be stylish. Definitely a great style for Spring and Summer, it's convenient for humid cities in the country.
Style Check: We personally love slightly dressier styles if you must own just a couple. Colour block, neons and tribal prints are perfect for the season.
Pumps: Try the platform ones in the style but a black or nude is a must in your wardrobe. Wear it literally with anything because remember it will look good. Pumps can do no wrong.
Style Check: We like round or square closed toes as oppposed to pinty ones, simply because we think its more wearable in the country and with the kinds of clothes we wear. You can even wear them with your Indian clothes.
Man shoes: Add a little bit of man in your outfit for those cool days when you experiment with androgyny. Choose from boots (not for humid countries), loafers and brogues. Chic for travel and when worn with a blazer and also looks great with denim shorts, shirts and blouses.
Style Check: We like to have these in leather or suede for maximum effect. For summer we are loving these glitter ones. For a classic appeal, pick tans, burgundies, greys and mustards look really nice in the style.
For those of you wondering, you can find all these must-have shoes in all Steve Madden outlets.
