But have you ever faced a situation where you feel that you just don't have any footwear to wear to office on your special presentation day?

Or may be a situation where you realise that your footwear is not complementing your dress as a result of which your entire look fades away.

Each one of us must have come across a similar situation at one point or other.

So what do you do in such a situation? Panic around, make shopping the first thing on your to-do-list, or wear whatever you have and just let it be?

Well here are some tips that will help you, so that the next time when you choose footwear complementing your formals; you may actually hit the bull's eye:

2. Always wear closed-toe footwear with formals.

For Indian Formal Or Semi-formal Wear: Sari/palazzo/ skirt/kurti-pyjami/jeans etc.

For the ones who are heavy weight and have a medium height, it is advisable to opt for platform heels with palazzo. For those who have a good height and are slim, high heels is the best option along with palazzo.

5. As per the Indian culture, females also prefer wearing kurti-pyjami to office. So in case of kurti-pyjami, one must opt for flats/ chappals or juttis.

6. Also jeans are a complete casual wear because of its rugged nature, but females do enjoy wearing it on the professional front as well. So if you are planning to wear jeans, make sure you wear close-toe footwear as are shown below in the picture.
