Today I want to talk about printed shoes. I was actually hesitant to try printed shoes because I was afraid they’d be less versatile than non-printed shoes. But, I have fabulous news; Printed shoes are very versatile! And fun! So, you know, win-win.
Seeing as animal print is practically a neutral, animal print shoes are probably the easiest to wear. Personally, I like to pair mine with other prints. (And, apparently, pleated skirts.)
Animal print is also great with solid colors, both brights and other neutrals.
Snake is another easy, practically neutral print that’s very easy to wear in a shoe.
Snake is especially easy to wear if you chose a neutral print but don’t be afraid of bolder snake prints as well.
Houndstooth was a big trend last fall/winter and I, for one, was happy to see it. Houndstooth is fun and, I think, also very easy to wear. I prefer to pair mine with strong, solid colors.
But, houndstooth works equally well with neutrals, adding a just enough oomph to a neutral outfit.
If you like to inject color into your outfits with a bright shoe, I’d recommend using a bright, printed shoe. They work just as well.
How about you, Already Pretty Friends? Do you wear printed shoes? Do you have a favorite print?

Already Pretty contributor Gracey hails from from Fashion for Giants. She’s essentially your average blogger, except that she’s taller than average (six foot) and bigger than average (size 14). She also likes to think that she’s more amusing than average, but that could just be vanity. In addition to being tall and plus-sized (and possibly hilarious), she’s also a thrift store shopper, a vintage lover, an Oregonian, and a bike commuter.
Likes: Gracey likes to shop, to blog, and to terrify her co-workers with brightly colored outfits.
Dislikes: Robot uprisings, too-short skirts, and leggings as pants.
