Red studded Valentino shoes, and a little collection waiting for you.

There are two things you can never have enough of: good friends and good shoes. Alright alright, maybe life is a tiny bit more complicated than that, but here on Chic Overdose we receive a lot of messages from you and you often ask for fashion tips and practical suggestions. What is the secret of Xenia’s immaculate style? What should I buy for my girlfriend? Can one be well dressed without a huge budget? Is Xenia simply beautiful and looks good in anything, or can we learn something from her?

Today we look at Xenia’s passion for shoes. The truth is: you can never look bad if you wear beautiful shoes. Style is the result of different factors and discipline plays a role in it. But if we want to boil it down to one and one only simple trick, shoes would probably be the never-failing element. Let’s go through some of Xenia’s looks to show how even the simplest outfit can be elevated by a pair of stylish shoes. High heels are not the only example of this. As for the budget, outlets, vintage shops, online bargains and time and passion for looking today allow you to buy beautiful shoes also at a reasonable price. So don’t settle: if you are striving for a good style do buy great shoes and throw away your “bad” ones.

Now see if you can get inspired by Xenia’s approach!

Can flats be glamorous?

Look for yourself: flats can feature zips, metal decorations, stunning quality and a sexy touch like in the case of over-the-knee boots. Paired with elegant simplicity you could wear them even at a red carpet event.

Sneakers you’ll crave for

We are biased here, but we do believe Xenia is an expert at finding those sneakers you wish you had in your cupboard. What’s sexier than a great pair of shoes that are also incredibly comfortable and glamorous? Why didn’t we think of buying them?

Open sandals open heart

Spring is coming, and anyway open sandals are worth to freeze for, sometimes – if the occasion is right. Showing your feet is a sign of confidence and makes the difference to any look. Choose a colour scheme, keep it in your outfit, and add a focal point with great open sandals.

Boots and ankle boots

Experiment with length: do you look better with shoes going up to your ankle? Or the classic calf boots? How about exaggerating and going all the way up?
