Ever find yourself in the shoe store, debating whether to play it safe with another pair of nude pumps or to give in and get that teal pump you’ve been eyeing? If so, you probably asked yourself, what could I possibly wear these with? Ladies, have no fear because there are plenty of things that you already have in your closet that will complement those pumps perfectly. So throw the neutral colors aside and head to the check-out counter with some new teal pumps. After you discover how much they spice up your style and add a splash of color to your classic looks, you will never want to take them off. And with teal being one of the hottest colors for fall, you may never have to.
Practically since the dawn of time, women have sworn by the power of the little black dress. Worn for a night on the town or a romantic evening, the little black dress evokes sophistication and sex appeal in one fell swoop. Add a touch of whimsy next time you dawn your little black dress by pairing it with a teal pump. Without losing that air of elegance, you will catch the attention of those around you and impress fellow fashionistas with your fun sense of style. If there aren’t any big nights out in your future, don’t hesitate to emulate this idea at work. Just make sure that your black work dress is a little longer and a little more conservative.
Although your teal pumps look stunning with a little black dress, don’t rule out wearing them with other colors. Imagine, for example, pairing them with a few different pastels. Pale yellows, corals, and pale greens may remind you of Easter, but when paired with teal they create a distinctly feminine feel that harkens back to a lost fashion era. If you long for the early 1960’s when colors were bright and clothing was clean-cut, try pairing your pumps with a monochromatic pastel dress that has a longer hemline. Grab a colorful clutch, and you’ll look feminine, fresh, and timeless. If all the colors are a bit too much for you, feel free to throw some cream colored elements, such as a cardigan or purse, into the mix. This will tone down the color palate while maintaining the ensemble's freshness.
Lucky for you, those teal pumps you purchased may work well in your wardrobe all year long. This fall, deep teal has been making a huge splash on the fashion scene. To keep warm, try pairing those pumps with some Camel or Taupe slacks and a chocolate brown jacket. Throw on some gold jewelry to accent the sense of luxury that your deep teal pumps create, and don’t be afraid to experiment with other jewel tones such as sapphire and deep purple. Always keep in mind, however, that opulence is the goal of this look, not imitating a peacock. So limit yourself to one or two accent colors, and you will be looking oh, so chic.
