Ask Allie: Styling Navy and Oxblood Kitten Heels

By Wardrobeoxygen @wardrobe_oxygen
I purchased these shoes at the Old Town Boutique District Warehouse Sale. While I can figure out how to wear them for work, I was wondering if you could provide me with some suggestions on how to style them in a more casual manner.

Cute shoes! I have some VC Signature shoes and find them quite comfortable and well-crafted. These shoes may seem hard to style with two very specific colors, but you can use them as an accent to not be too matchy-matchy yet still cohesive.

A shoe with this heel height is comfortable enough to wear on weekends. Paired with a simple navy turtleneck sweater and dark crisp jeans, these shoes make wardrobe staples downright chic and polished and perfect for anything from brunch with a friend to hitting the mall. A striped knit is one of my favorite pieces for weekends as it looks more purposeful and polished than a solid; add a silk scarf at the throat and you have a comfortable and easy ensemble that is chic enough for casual dining or drinks at the local bar.

Kitten heels work with skirts and pants of most any length and width, and can look appropriate with a proper suit, or more casual ensembles. For these two looks, I was thinking Casual Friday or a weekend event like a bridal shower or luncheon. Oxblood is a hot color this season and easy to find at most retailers. An oxblood pleated skirt will be great now and through the spring, paired with a chambray shirt and some fun bracelets, this would be a great look for museum hopping and lunch. A kitten heel also looks great with a wider leg – I paired these shoes with a denim trouser and crisp white shirt for a classic ensemble. The shirt could be left untucked or tucked (consider adding an unexpected additional print such as a leopard haircalf belt) for a simple and easy yet sophisticated look for a more casual office or weekend event. If needed, add a navy cardigan for warmth.
