Are you wondering what shoes to wear with that new dress or those new trousers? Or maybe you have a closet full of shoes, but you can't seem to find the right pair to complete your glorious outfit? Then it is time to re-discover your personal shoe style! Every person has a specific style that is unique to them. It is often a reflection of their taste, personality, ideas, opinions, and creativity. Your style can tell people a lot! Perhaps you find it difficult to determine who you are in shoe terms. Don't worry, we created this helpful list with stylish suggestions and five tips that will guide you to shoe style success.
1. What shoes or boots do you like?
What do you feel comfortable in? The first step is to think about what shoe styles you are drawn to. Do you prefer heels or flats? Boots like the Khombu Jessica Boots or practical sandals like Khombu Women's Sandals Create? Of course, you also have to think about the occasion you are dressing for. A party shoe will be different than a work shoe such as Kenneth Cole Men's Brock Slip On Dress Shoe Black, which will be different to hiking boots like Khombu Men's Hiking Boots Jared Black you would wear on your next hike around the forest. Shoes can change the entire vibe of an outfit, which is why it is important to choose your next pair wisely.
2. Your wardrobe tells you everything!
Check your attire! Every single pair of trousers and every single skirt you have bought for a reason, right? Maybe you liked the colour and cut of the blouse, or you loved how the trousers made your legs look. All of these shopping decisions are signals of what shoe style you like. Look through your current shoe collection for a pattern. Do you like black classic shoes like the Clyde Flex Lace Up Dress Shoe Brown with a simple design? Or are you more daring and prefer patterns, bright colours and contrasts? Heels or no heels? Yes, you have a lot of questions to ask yourself.
3. What do your shoes have in common?
Perhaps all of your beautiful shoes are black or brown, or perhaps you almost always wear boots such as Sporto's Layla boots in winter. This is another shoe style hint for you! A shoe’s colour can also tell us a lot about your personal shoe style. Or are you only wearing leather or canvas shoes? Discovering small details can tell you a lot about your shoe personality and will help you to determine who you are in shoe terms.
4.What are your shoe categories?
Do you group all of your shoes according to shoe type, such as sandals, sneakers, or heels? Look at your shoes in each category and try to find some shoe style similarities. What type of shoes do you wear the most? If you are a fan of casual shoes in low-key colours, then that's another fantastic hint. Once you have shoe categories, finding out what shoe style you like becomes a lot easier!
5....or are you drawn to new styles?
Perhaps you are looking at your current shoe style and clothes collection with a sense of dread. You feel like you've been wearing the same shoe style for years....and they bore you. Well, then it is time to freshen up your style with cosy snow boots such as the Irene Sweater Boots or a stylish pair of vintage-inspired Tretorn shoes. It is never too late to try something new. This also applies to shoe styles!
This short but effective list should have helped you rediscover or refresh your shoe style!
