You bat for Team Light, Bright or Dark Footwear depending on which you like to wear the most. Note that pastel, light metallic, light earth tones, light animal prints, and lighter mid-tones are grouped with light footwear. Burgundy, plum, eggplant, forest green, navy, dark olive, dark grey, dark patterns, dark metallics, and black count as dark.
I don’t wear black shoes or black clothing. I have an old pair of dressy navy knee-high boots and burgundy hi-tops that I wear a few times a year. I have bright red, citron, turquoise, and shocking pink shoes that I wear quite frequently. The lion’s share of my footwear capsule is shades of white. Bright white, off-white, cream, and bone. I have a few pairs of taupe, gold and pastel shoes too.
Here are my light and bright shoes. In fact, these are all my shoes apart from pool slides, slippers, and snow boots. Some pairs are worn out and tired looking. But I can’t bear to part with them because they are very comfortable. I’ll pass them on when I have the right replacements.
I bat for Team Light Footwear because the colours work best with the palettes in my wardrobe, which are sour brights, some pastels, some earth tones, and lots of blues and whites. Light footwear also matches the white pearl jewellery I wear daily, and works well with my blonde hair. Visually, I like the crisp and modern addition of white shoes in outfits. I’ve been wearing white shoes all my life, and it’s signature to my style. I also enjoy wearing bright, gold and pastel shoes, but always come back to some shade of white.
Over to you. Do you bat for Team Light, Bright, or Dark Footwear? Tell us why and no batting for multiple teams. If you can’t pick a side, join the bench, where I’m serving home-made tuna and salmon poke bowls with warm sushi rice, fresh avocado, seaweed salad, and hot miso soup. Dessert is Cadbury’s fruit and nut chocolate.
