My 2016 wardrobe essential

My 2016 wardrobe essential

On my compulsive shopping routines, I often end up buying clothes & shoes that momentarily satisfy the shopaholic in me, but later don’t seem to go very well with anything that I own. Sometimes, they just take up space in the wardrobe until it’s time to give them away. But one out of ten things that I buy gets the “It” status and becomes my favorite for months, sometimes, for the whole year.

You always own something like this; it’s has the best spot on your shoe shelf or hangs right in front of your face when you open the wardrobe door. It would be among the few things that you meticulously get cleaned and laundered.  It seems to look perfect with everything and suits every occasion. So here’s what has been my “It” thing since the day I bought it in January – My silver oxfords.  Typically, I would wear them only with a pair of jeans or trousers, but I’m surprised that these shoes go so well with anything that I pick up to wear these days. I’m someone who hates to part with my high heels, but I love how these oxfords make an outfit stand out. So, here are different looks-casual, dressy and semi formal, all finished to my satisfaction with the shiny silver shoes!



Love how the silver makes my yellow skirt ‘pop’. Top- Zara , Skirt- Topshop, Shoes- Forever21

My pretty shoes!  You can find similar ones here: Wanderlust@Koovs ,  New Look @Koovs , Zara silver shoes , Forever21 shoes


There is a simple way to decide whether you really want a similar pair- visualize each of these looks with a pair of shoes that you already own (replace the silver shoes). Would the outfit still look great? Whatever your answer may be, you should go find your “It” wardrobe dweller; a pair of silver/white shoes or a stunning white top or a piece of sparkling rock and come right back for the next post!


Until then,
