A shoe with personality is not going to be a good match to everything in your closet, but that is actually a good thing. First, it can inspire you to put together pieces in new combinations which is great for getting out of a style rut. Second, it forces you to wear some of the other footwear that has been collecting dust in the back of your closet. If your signature shoe doesn't work with a particular dress, then perhaps that will give you an excuse to wear the pumps you bought for a wedding and only wore once. Third, interesting shoes make for a more interesting outfit which is an easy way to give yourself a style boost. A pair of black pumps everyday may be appropriate at work, but that doesn't mean they are the only appropriate option and they certainly aren't the most exciting option.
The pointy flats in the photo are simple and sleek, with an appealing pop of bright blue contrasted against the navy. I like them because they are a modern and stylish twist on a sensible shoe that can be worn to the office or with jeans and a blazer for a casual dinner with friends. They are slightly less versatile than a pair of completely navy shoes because the lighter blue clashes with some colors, but a signature shoe should improve an outfit, not merely be an okay addition to the outfit. This doesn't mean that you will need to buy a new pair of shoes for every clothing combination you can dream up. If there are certain colors that you like to wear a lot, look for a shoe that works with that palette. Just because something isn't neutral doesn't mean that it won't be a good fit in your wardrobe.
