And why I love them.
The ugly shoe is inescapable in fashion, and for whatever reason, the uglier the shoe, the more us fashion girls seem to love them. Of course I love myself a pretty shoe, (I own 6 pair of Aquazzuras) but I can’t seem to toughen up that soft spot I have for adopting all the weird ones.
I do, however, have a theory as to why this might be. Perhaps, when it comes to falling in love with an ugly shoe, we’re just attracted to it because we otherwise shouldn’t be. How else is one meant to take risks in fashion if we don’t lean towards clothing and accessories that are dangerously bad? That being said, dangerously bad can be strikingly good if done right, resulting in a fashion gamble that pays off. Remember, it’s all in the styling, so if you take the plunge and find yourself in a new relationship with an ugly shoe, let it speak for itself and keep the rest of your outfit and accessories minimal.
Here are 6 ugly shoes on my shopping list right now. Leave me a comment and help me decide which pair I should bring home to meet the fam!
