Styling Tip: Wear Bright Shoes

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Add Bright Heels

To counter the frustration that comes with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear or appear just a little more put-together, we've culled our stylish community and pulled from our savvy editors for the quick-hit solutions to making over our looks in a mere minute. Today, one of our favorite styling tricks: add bright heels.

  • A pair of bright heels (or flats, or wedges) adds instant dimension and interest to any look, really. Test drive the effect with a basic look, like a white tee and denim. Stepping into a bright pair of shoes will amp up that ensemble instantaneously.
  • Why footwear? Investing in a playful pair of heels is a safe way to spend, since your feet aren't likely to change sizes. Of course, if you fear the color you choose won't be "in" for very long, opt for a budget-friendly pair. If you do opt for a more expensive pair, keep it in a classic color, like red, that isn't likely to go out of style.
  • Bright shoes are also a safer way to experiment with bolder colors. If, for example, you've always loved lime green or orange, but feared you couldn't pull it off with your complexion, shoes are the perfect way to add the colors you love in a less-obvious way.
  • Keep a pair of bright heels in your bag or your filing cabinet. Then, think of them as your secret weapon — slip them on before date night or on your way out of work for a quick outfit refresh that doesn't require stopping off at home.
