Shoes are one of the most important accessory to choose when you are getting ready for your senior pictures. They are what pull your outfit together. They can draw attention or they can be a subtle accessory that enhances the look. They are the piece of clothing you’re going to be walking in all day and keep your feet protected wherever you choose to take your pictures. Be sure you choose wisely! There are a lot of different shoes you can pick and in the end you want to be sure you pick the ones you feel the most comfortable and confident in.
1. Neutral-colored Heels: If you're planning to wear a dress or a more formal outfit, neutral-colored heels can add elegance and elongate your legs. Nobody ever regretted a cute black heel. I personally love the beige color heel. It adds pop to an outfit, adds a sense of beauty but it doesn’t detract from the outfit of choice. The colors of the outfit you chose will still pop, the flow of the dress you choose will still be elegant but the shoes will add to it. Be sure you wear the heels before you go to your senior pictures. If you haven’t broken them in, your feet will not be happy. Be sure you opt for comfortable heels that you can confidently walk in and pose comfortably for extended periods.
2. Stylish Boots: Boots can be a great choice for senior pictures, especially if you want a more casual or bohemian look. The good thing about boots is there is a variety of boots you can choose from. Depending on the look you’re going for, you can achieve that look solely through boots. Choose a stylish pair of ankle boots for a chic look. Use a pair of combat boots for an edgier look. Knee-high boots add some sophistication. Cowgirl boots add a rustic and fun feeling to your pictures. Whatever feel you’re aiming for in your senior pictures, boots will help you get there! Like heels though, sometimes boots are hard to break in. Wear them ahead of time and be sure you don’t get any blisters on those feet!
3. Sneakers: If you prefer a casual and comfortable look, sneakers are a fantastic option. I love a classic pair of converse paired with jeans and a cute shirt. Or even with a sun dress. Either way, sneakers is a great way to be comfortable during your senior pictures, have a very specific laid back look and the added benefit of your feet will be so happy. White or neutral-colored sneakers can complement a variety of outfits and give a relaxed, yet stylish vibe to your photos but you could also opt for a vibrant colorful pair of sneakers. This will add uniqueness and color to your senior pictures.
4. Ballet Flats: For a more dainty and comfortable option, ballet flats are a great choice. Ballet flats are my personal favorite. They work well with dresses, skirts, or even jeans. You can pair them with a colorful outfit or a more neutral colored outfit. They can be fancier with bows on them or they can be more understated with just a matte finish. Ballet flats are elegant and cute all at the same time. They are timeless and will always make pictures look beautiful. Ballet flats are great because they offer a more relaxed and effortless feel to your senior pictures.
