Ask Frenchye

Q: Is it OK to wear peep toe shoes with tights?

Though it’s still cold outside, it’s OK to break out those peep toe pumps that have been collecting dust in your closet (they happen to be one of the season’s hottest trends). By wearing them with tights, you add warmth and style to your footgear. Head to Aldo in Southpark Mall, Nordstrom in Beachwood Place or the Shoe Gallery of Hudson and look for solid colors (instead of patterned or printed tights) to avoid looking too busy.

Q: Do I have to wear a black belt and shoes with a gray suit?

Absolutely not! Gray is considered a neutral color, so it works well with almost any color. Black is usually the accessory color of choice,  but consider adding a brown belt and shoes instead — your look will be more stylish and upbeat. Just remember: Whatever color shoes you decide to wear with your gray suit, your belt needs to match. Find tons of shoes to create a fresh color combination at places such as Giovanni Carrelli Clothier in Crocker Park, Johnston & Murphy in Southpark Mall and Brooks Brothers in Beachwood Place.
