Pair the slingbacks with ultra-flare jeans for a boho chic style. Wear a loose-fitting blouse, slightly tucked into the top of the jeans, and jeans that extend to the bottom of the heel with a 10-inch flare opening. For the shoe choose a solid color, a patterned version or something with accents such as jewels, grommets or sequins.
Wear slingbacks on your wedding day in white or ivory. Slingbacks are an ideal choice for brides because of the elegant curves of the shoe and the wide assortment of choices available. If white or ivory is not your color of choice, then choose a vibrant red or soft pink to complete your bridal look.
