How to Select Shoes to Wear With a Woman’s Suit

Yes,
you can get away with just a few pairs of shoes to coordinate with your
multiple suits. Buy basic, yet classic, and spend a little more up
front to ensure a longer life.

 

Things You’ll Need:

               

                   
Step1

Start with a basic black mid- to high-heel pump. You can wear this shoe with straight-leg pantsuits as well as skirted suits. Pumps truly are a businesswoman’s staple.

               

                   
Step2

Consider a pair of leather loafers for a more casual look. This style
is appropriate for both wide- and straight-leg pants, as well as your
basic straight skirt.
Black is the most versatile and the dressiest color; dark brown will
make a rich contrast to navy, but will definitely be viewed as more
casual.

               

                   
Step3

Buy a pair of sling-back pumps for spring suits. They’re elegant and
classic, and widely accepted in less conservative work environments.

               

                   
Step4

Decide on a heel height that gives you the lift you’d like, but make
sure that your feet can handle 40- to 80-hour work weeks at that
elevation. Covered heels are dressier than their stacked (wood-heeled)
counterparts.

               

                   
Step5

Invest in high-quality, well-made shoes that fit your feet. Over the long haul, your feet will be in better condition, and your shoes will last longer.

               

                   
Step6

Consider the texture and weight of your suit’s fabric. Heavier-weight
fabrics call for leather, whereas a microfiber shoe is appropriate for
silk and nylon blends.

               

                   
Step7

Shine leather shoes regularly. This lengthens the life of the shoe and conveys a more professional and polished appearance.

               

                   
Step8

Resole your pumps as they wear down at the rubber or plastic tipping.
Neglecting this may saw your heel down to the leather stem and damage
the shoe.
