But with branded shoes with kitten heels you need to be more careful. For example, Louis Vuitton shoes are tricky regarding combining. You have to pay attention to colour, heel’s shape, and other small details of particular shoes, and in terms with that only you can try to pick up colours of your clothes and accessories. If your shoes are too bright and have some additional details as shoe buckles or very extravagant print, than perhaps you need to get clothes of one colour and just add something bright the same colour as shoes, it could be, for example, vintage brooch, handbag or hair band.
