Combining Classics

There are some things that will never go out of style. No matter what hot new trends appear on the scene from year to year, there are some fashion classics that will never become no-nos. Some go-to style choices – a polished, pointy pump, flashy and fabulous metallics, and a gorgeous snakeskin texture – are items that always look beautiful and ladylike, no matter the year or the season.

And your local Goodwill is the perfect place to look for these ever-chic kinds of pieces. These sharp, sophisticated heels combine every kind of classically gorgeous and chic style trait – metallic hues, snakeskin, and a traditionally styled pump – into one perfect shoe. There’s no way a lady could ever go wrong with a refined pair of shoes like this in her wardrobe, no matter what’s on her agenda.

metallic snakeskin pumpsThis pretty-as-can-be pair of high-heeled pumps is a lady’s ideal accessory – a pointed pair of pumps like these will never go out of style, especially when made in a metallic snakeskin that will complement just about every other piece in her wardrobe.

The foolproof fashion accessory. Beautiful shoes are a lady’s best friend (forget about diamonds). And an elegant high heel like this one could instantly dress up any darling outfit, whether the look you’re going for is relaxed and casual, fun and flirty, or all-out fancy. You could easily pair these heels with a flowing, figure-flattering cocktail dress in absolutely any hue for a simple but show-stopping ensemble suited for any high-class occasion. Or, for a completely different outfit, put on these fantastic shoes with a basic white tee-shirt and perfectly fitted jeans for an effortlessly chic but totally laid-back look. Here, I’ve chosen an ensemble that’s somewhere between those two opposite ends of the style spectrum – this look is suited for a fun night out with friends on a Friday night or even a date night, but isn’t quite cocktail attire. A pair of soft, silvery gray knit tights dresses up these shimmering, navy and silver wool shorts – they’re a lovely and unexpected choice for a night out in the dead of winter. A comfortable but fitted and slimming sweater, also in navy, is the ideal topper for this surprisingly sophisticated combination, and the stunning new pumps, found at Goodwill, are the chicest possible way to tie this whole look together.
