Never underestimate the power of shoes to transform an outfit.
Many of the fashions you see today are reminiscent of past decades, most notablY the 1940s.
The style of that time was a bit softer. Hemlines dropped, waists were cinched, and a good hat was important.
This glamorous style has returned and the right footwear is needed to complete the look. Dramatic details such as rounded toes, ankle straps, covered buttons and decorative stitching make a big impact.
This style of footwear can be worn with a range of items from jeans to dresses. Distinctive yet subtle, vintage- inspired shoes complement the most simple and ornate ensemble.
