Lucie Loves...#Blogged // Statement shoes by Atalanta Weller at Young British Designers and how to wear them


These sea blue peep-toe sandal wedges by Atalanta Weller are certainly eye-catching. But how on earth do you wear them? I decided to set myself a small mission to answer that question.

Here are some outfit inspiration photos that I found on Pinterest, my favourite visual mood-boarding site.

“How To Wear Statement Shoes?”

1. Think casual, think neutral and let your feet do the talking.

Wear a camel jacket, simple white t-shirt, coral red nails and skinny ankle-grazer blue jeans with your statement shoe of choice.

2. Tie your shoe colour in with your accessories.

Whether that’s picking a shade that matches your shoe by pairing it with a necklace or gorgeous clutch bag, have fun with it. Go for jewel-tones: hot pink, burnished orange or emerald green.

3. Colour Pop.

Pretty fuchsia pink colour-block boots add a little something extra to this grey, navy and black-leather ensemble. Wear your favourite ‘look-at-me’ footwear and purposefully play down the rest of your outfit’s colour palette to make them look even bolder.

4. Monochrome magic.

Dress solely in black and white. Give your outfit a twist by playing with printed trousers and then add your favourite colourful shoes to finish the look off. This look could work with flats or heels.

5. Spectrum.

Choose a simple long-sleeved dress in one hue and then select your shoes and accessories depending on complementary shades on the colour wheel.
