How to Wear Gold Shoes & Not Look Like Elvis!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that was so striking, that your entire outfit had to be built around it?

I did! I bought a pair of Gold Creeper shoes from Koovs. (no clue what creeper shoes are, do you know?) Picking an outfit that would not compete with these shoes proved to be quite a task. Any competition would have been a serious disaster. Take a look at the picture below and you will know what I mean. πŸ˜‰

I mean, it is gold and has black laces. It is really tough to not look like Elvis Presley in shoes like these. So, I decided to go for one of the most sober dresses in my wardrobe – a plain blue, almost turtleneck, asymmetrical midi dress. I say plain, but the dress is ribbed, has a beautiful cut and truly flatters any figure. Trust me, it did a lot for me. 😝

I chose a pair of gold hoop earrings with a blue dangling stone and a long chain with a crystal pendant. Bowing to the heat of tropical Cambodia, I pulled my hair into a side braid. You can see from the picture that I have kept the make up light – lined eyes, mascara and a mauve pink lipstick completed my look. This was perfect, because I had a long day. We rode in the only bamboo train in Cambodia, visited a Buddhist temple, ate dried bananas and mangoes, had a five course Cambodian meal, saw about a million bats fly out at sunset and so much more. I think the look worked. What do you think? πŸ˜Š

PS: You can also style these shoes with denims & a plain black or white t-shirt. It’s a statement shoe, so keep the rest of your outfit really simple and you will be fine. πŸ˜Š
