This is the first of a new segment suggested by a reader named Shannon. She sent me a picture of the shoes below asking for help on what to wear them with.
Above is my first suggestion for her. She wears a lot of black and only pants and jeans, no dresses or skirts. She also wants to add more color to her wardrobe.
Later I learned she wears a size 14 and has a large bust so she felt the fitted jacket might not be a good match with her figure. My next suggestion includes a little more dressy burgundy blouse with black pants and a tan bag.
Another option would be to wear them with softer toned neutrals. A long necklace creates a flattering V-Neckline.
Yet another option would be to wear them with a flirty royal blue jacket and white loose flowing blouse with an orange handbag.
Perhaps my personal favorite way to wear animal print shoes is with worn jeans and a white shirt, an elegant bag, and chunky jewelry.
Animal print is considered a neutral so you can wear it (in small doses) with almost anything. I limit myself to one item per look.
You may send your style questions to me at Susan@FiftynotFrumpy.com. Yours could be used in the next Q&A.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
