Are there any rules how to choose the perfect pair of bags and shoes?
The times when the bag and shoes of the same color and design were considered the right choice and a sign of good taste are gone.
Now it is possible to give vent to your imagination and, it would seem, combine the incompatible, although we should not forget about some rules to create a harmonious image that would emphasize our individuality. However, these are rules, but not laws. Although one law probably exists - everything should be relevant. Evening dress suits for the evening, and casual one - for the bright time of the day. So, you can combine a bag and Rieker shoes according to the following principles:
1. According to the color
To combine a bag and Rieker shoes of the same color is acceptable in monochrome outfits or for recreating ensembles in retro style. In order to combine accessories by color, one of them must be monophonic, and the other one - multicolor. You can always select one of the shades of the multicolor element and repeat it in the second accessory. If your Rieker shoes are of blue color, there must be one of three blue elements on the bag. Conversely, a single-colored bag goes great in combination with colored Rieker shoes. It is not necessary to follow the complete match of color. You can use different colors complementing each other. One of the accessories can have the main accent, or both items can emphasize the color of each other in a winning manner.
2. According to the pattern
Those outfits in which one accessory is with a pattern, and another is monophonic look really stylish. The pattern on the bag and Rieker shoes can be completely different, but then it should be kept in one color. In order not to overload the image with details, remember that an uncomplicated geometric pattern and floral print can be combined very well. You can use the same pattern for both a bag and Rieker shoes, but then it must be of different color.
3. According to the texture
As for the texture, again the rule is that one accessory should dominate. For example, the lacquer bag and shoes look pretty vulgar. Lacquer bag is best complemented with Rieker shoes made from suede or just matte leather, and vice versa. Weaving and products made of straw or textiles in general are in good harmony with any material other than their own. Bags or shoes made of rubber look great with suede and textiles, while accessories made of metal are best worn with suede.
4. According to the decor
Often designers add a rich or voluminous decor to the product. An accessory used in conjunction with such a complex element, on the contrary, should be extremely laconic. So you can present a smart piece of your wardrobe with a great glamor. Also, you can pick up shoes and a bag combined with a common idea, where the decorative technique is not repeated literally.
5. According to the design
One of the simplest and most non-strict rules, which is easy to follow, is a combination of design accessories. The bag and Rieker shoes of rounded shapes look more harmonious. On the contrary, the perfect complement to a hard-shaped bag will be the Rieker shoes of clear lines.
6. According to the Style
Of course, it is very fashionable to mix different styles creating unusual images but outfits belonging to the same style are in vogue as well.
