In 1957, Coco Chanel designed her classic two-tone shoes. At the time, they were the “must-have” shoe, and they still are today. All of Chanel’s designs were elegant and chic, but she always made sure they were practical, as well. And, her two-tone shoes were no exception. She wanted them to be comfortable enough to wear all day, so she made the heel chunky and a reasonable height. Also, her color choices, beige and black, were not random. They were chosen because the beige elongates the leg and the black toe makes the foot look shorter. This color combination can be paired with everything and worn to any occasion – so versatile.
As Chanel said, “We leave in the morning with a beige and black, we lunch with beige and black, we go to a cocktail party with the beige and black. We are dressed from morning to night!” – Coco Chanel

Every Monday I feature a pair of my shoes and tell a little bit about them. Shoes make the outfit and who doesn’t love shoes. Shoes have a story to tell, like where you were when you bought them, what event you were at when you first wore them, who you were with when you wore them, etc.
