My Girl Friends’ Tip on How to Wear Red Shoes

One thing that would make you survive college is a bunch of honest, loving, and sincere friends. They will tell you when you need to gain (or loose) some weight, will make sure you won’t fall asleep in your class and will cover your back when some things don’t go as planned.

My girlfriends were like that to me when we were on college. But what’s even more amazing was that they even help me go shopping for my shoes! And one fine shopping day, they got me this onepretty little red hot pair of wedge platform boots.

They say there’s always a first time, and for someone who is not really a fan of loud colors, that was exactly my first time to buy shoes. I don’t know how it happened but I guess they really tricked me into buying that shoes. They even told me what to wear, what pieces in my wardrobe will fit my new shoes, and how good it is to actually wear something red on your foot.

I hope you have friends like them. Having friends to go shoe shopping with is just crazy! Well, if you don’t, at least let me be your girl best friend today and let me pass on some of the things my best buds told me about red shoes.

What does the color Red say about you?

My girlfriends and I have different personalities. One of them is a visual artist, the other one plays lead guitar for a band, and the other one is a singer. And me? I am the writer of the group but compared to them I am the more uptight and ill-tempered fella. Maybe that’s why red is not really my color. Imagine the redundancy.

Red is a color that is often associated with strong emotions such as anger, excitement, love, or passion. It is often chosen by people who are outgoing, aggressive, and ambitious – or someone who would like to play the part. Wearing something red brightens up any wardrobe and gives people the feeling that you are into something fun and a little sexy.

My girlfriends told me one simple rule. When wearing red wedge boots, go easy with other items you wear. Dark colored jeans are just perfect but you can also wear mini skirt for a casual day. If something formal comes up, wear a skirt that falls just above the knee to make it more professional.

Solid colored tops can also do the job. If you are someone like me who don’t really want to wear too much color, a white top would look clean and polished. You can also chose to wear monochromatic attire for a more laid back but fashionable look.

Accessorize a little with items with a little splash of red like a pendant or a purse to seal up the look.

Just remember that darker shade of green won’t work unless you’re going to a Christmas party and you’re playing as Santa’s elf. Also, don’t make the mistake of wearing a lot of accessories with a lot of red in them. Keep it minimal for a more mysterious and sexy look.

The last thing my girlfriends told me before I paid for my shoes is that, it’s just a red shoe. They said that I should just wear it with confidence, feel good about myself and nothing could go wrong. And if you trust your friends as much as I do, shop for shoes and let them help you pick a pair for you. I am sure you won’t regret it, because I surely didn’t.
