Red shoes are a style essential in my book. Why?
Because they add a bit of sass to the right outfit. If you have to wear a conservative outfit, for whatever reason and really need to rebel, slip a pair of red shoes on and BAM! Everyone knows you’re the naughtiest in the room.
If you want to get really adventurous with your color pairings, consult a color wheel. The rule is that whatever color is opposite the color you are referencing, then that is its complementary color. Unfortunately, red’s complimentary color is green and since that is a little too Christmassy for me, I decided to look a bit deeper.
Kissmetrics has a very good color coordinating tutorial that is easy and quick to understand. The advantage being that they teach you other ways of coordinating colors besides just looking at a complimentary color.
Give it a try, and see what surprising colors go together.
