As any woman knows, no look is complete without the right pair of shoes.

If you have a more casual date night planned, where a fancy dress will be too much, you can still sport a Canada Day look. This adorable white paisley lace top (forever21.com, $30), for instance, will be perfectly complemented by a skinny red belt (forever21.com, $5). Combine this stylish top ensemble with a pair of jeans and your favourite sexy shoes, and you’re good to go.
