Foot to wear

Peacock is a beautiful bird but if you turn to look downwards then you immediately get turned off. If you are wondering why we are discussing peacocks when we are talking about fashion then don’t get confused more. We are talking about one the most intriguing part of our body- foot. Men fantasize feet more than some other revealing parts of the body. Fashion can be an absolute disaster if you are not wearing the right footwear to go along. If you are choosing the latest style for your body wear, then why dump it all with old and wrong footwear. Today’s fashion experts say that big and bold is the season’s style for your footwear. Also you can mix and match simple cuts with bold footwear. There are big and bold collections available in various footwear brands. Team up a simple black knee length gown with Sexy Chanel Boots with detailing along sides or go for Golden Boots by Jimmy Choo. Match up snake skin boots by Jean Paul Gaultier’s with mini golden dress. Eyes would be chasing down you every where you walk down to. Fashion is all about experimenting, so create your style by trying out new footwear styles. Choose stylish textures like leather, suede, bright colors, ornamented heels and strings. Let your foot loose and see the difference in the attention you have been getting till now to the attention that you get after you have taken up one of these style mantras. So, go for it woman.
