Avoiding your Top Footwear Blunders
Not all trendy designs are apt for your feet. While choosing your shoes please keep these finer points in mind. In fashion-master’s lingo, these are called blunders.
- Avoid tights with an open toe and if you insist, ensure this portion is really small and not so clearly visible. This gaffe is not noticeable if your bottoms and shoe colours match. The problem is once you get away with it, you will wear again and may be this time the colours don’t match.
- Socks are not really needed in summers. Anyway, they are not supposed to be seen so make sure they are not fully visible.
- If you’re a really small or petite person, always avoid clumpy boots. These will make you look ‘all-feet’.
- If choosing sports shoes ensure the breather upper is not white as in a few uses it loses charm and never matches your outfit.
Trending designs for Summer Season
Sandals have grown into a smart statement this season because during a hot summer nothing truly beats up their comfort. Immaterial if the sole is thick or not, the comfort value just cannot be missed.
Look for a pair of sandals that is stylish and functional in equal measures. Go with wide-cut foot straps for a secure, non-slip fit, choose lightly padded insoles for comfortable footing, and pick out understated colours and designs, that still retain their strength and smooth feel.

If you had two straps the previous year, go either for a broad single or three thinner straps. Choose something which is not associated with your identity, at least in your friend circles.
Breezy and Breathable Slip-ons

You can also try out the supple leather shoes, perforated for both texture and ventilation, perfected with a pull tab for easy wear. Sometimes they come with back loop to keep your ankle from slipping out.
Summer season does have an off day or two and making use of this weather season will keep your fashion quotient high. Choose an orange or navy blue lined beige sole for just these days. Those accustomed with cool designs will be surprised no doubt and hate you for your judicious choice.
