Which shoe will choose you?
Women have a habit of buying shoes that are just pretty. We are fascinated by pretty things in pretty colors so we are really unfortunate victims to the shopping habits. Especially shoes.
A big problem I’d say! So today’s blog post is going to be about identifying which shoe is the one for you and if you really must spend, spend it wisely on a kind of shoe that you will wear. [Because I assure you. I have a lot of 'trophy' shoes]
There are numerous types of shoes so for today, I have chosen the ones that we all know best. While it may be about choosing the one that you wear the most or like the most, it may not always suit you for some reasons. I’m no expert but I shall share a little of my knowledge with you! Read on:
Kitten Heels. These shoes are a little more on the formal side. They are classic. Usually, these are the shoes with a slight heel only, 2/3 inches. Stella McCartney popularized them in recent times while Chanel was a big fan of these shoes. The 1920s actually saw these shoes emerged and reach its peak of popularity. Probably the working women’s shoe, they are perfect for everyday wear. These are tricky shoes so make sure to try them on and look at it from every angle!
Oxford shoes are a variation of the Men’s shoe. In fashion however, there is no set rules for men or women so when women’s shoes were modeled after the Men’s Oxfords, it was a divine discovery. Oxford lace-up shoes came with and without heels. Comfortable and suited for walking around everywhere, everyday, its no wonder that we see the most stylish people in the world -style icons & models- walking around in a pair of these!
Here we have the wedge shoes! These are YOUR shoes if you like to wear high heeled shoes and feel comfortable at the same time! Wedges were made for comfort! They will support you and not make you feel pain as stilettos do and trust me, as a girl who loves her high heels, I most definitely know what I am talking about!! So, you stylish woman, I suggest you go for wedges if you decide to make a statement and stand up tall and straight all night long!
Now we come to the statement makers! Whether they are flats or heels or lace ups, it’s alright. The only different with them? That they will always end up looking a little different than usual shoes. Now if you are someone who is drawn to the unusual or weird, I’d say you are one of the statement makers. Revel and bask in it for you will always be different! In this decade of fashion, it’s the rule of the unconventional .
Stock heels. Again, another form of comfort shoes for sky-high heels. Most people quote these shoes as ugly and lacking all forms of sex appeal but I care to disagree. Stock/platform heels add so much more quality to a shoe and in fact, it actually does make your legs look longer. If you have a problem with stilettos [like me] but would prefer to wear heels all day long and also, if you have tiny, skinny legs and calf muscles and would like to disguise that, Stock heels are here to rescue you!
Ballet flats. The perfect shoes for everyday and any day. You MUST own at least 2 pairs of ballet flats because they are useful, versatile and are super-duper cute! While it reminds us that we’re back in school, there’s no denying that we love them. Contrary to popular beliefs, ballet flats are not only for the girly girls. They go really well with jeans and shorts and other ensembles too. So while everyone may have a type, its safe to say that every girl needs a pair of ballet flats.
And finally! We come to pumps and stilettos! I personally feel that when you wear pumps, you should be of a certain age. It’s not necessarily an older woman’s shoe but it has an air of grace and charisma and unless you have attained the art of being a refined woman, you cannot wear these shoes! For the woman who has achieved everything she has ever wanted but will strive for more, for the woman who knows what she wants, for the woman who has impeccable taste in fashion and has cultivated her very own personal style… in my judgement, YOU are the stiletto woman.
So choose well ladies. Sometimes, we can be more than one kind of shoe but its also dependent on your likes and dislikes too. Keep in mind that its best to identify yourself with your shoe early on so as time goes by, you always know exactly what you want!
