I think most girls have a shoe addiction problem to some extent… I may be worse than others I’m afraid. I literally cannot fit all of my shoes in one closet, and I have a walk-in closet. I have to use the walk-in closet in our spare bedroom to house all my lovelies. Today we get to explore styles of shoes and accessories. If you haven’t already, make sure you take our What’s Your Style Quiz so you can get a better idea of what style genre you might fit into.
Our fashion objective for the month of February is: I understand my personal style and can create outfits to showcase it. Today our objective is: I can identify different styles of shoes and accessories and evaluate which fits my personal style the best. Each week during the month of February we have been learning about the following components in order to help you understand your personal style so you can learn how to put outfits together that fit your fashion preferences.

We will be exploring 6 style genres- classy, casual, edgy, sporty, posh-professional, and glam. Keep in mind that you may be drawn to more than one genre, and that is just fine! Many of us like different genres but are most drawn to one, our goal is to figure out which genre best fits you!
Classy shoes tend to stick with softer or neutral colors and matte finishes. The shapes are often soft and feminine.
Casual shoes are often very comfortable and made out of soft, easy to wear and care for materials. Casual shoes tend to stick to neutral or muted colors.
Edgy shoes tend to use shiny, metallic, and suede fabrics with some embellishments. Usually the shapes are a bit stronger and stand out more.
Sporty shoes don’t veer too far from sneakers. They are made out of materials that are easy to walk/run in and are usually very comfortable and supportive.
Posh-Professional shoes are usually made with shiny, suede, silk-like materials. Pointed toes are very popular as they add a more professional/feminine feel to the shoe.
Glam shoes, as with other glam pieces, are made to stand out a bit more. Glam shoes tend to use bold prints, metallic materials, and embellishments.
Which are you??
Now that we have learned a bit more about genres of shoes, which would you classify yourself as liking the most? I don’t get as afraid to express my “Glam” style through my shoes because I feel like it’s okay if shoes are a big statement piece. I feel more comfortable wearing blinged out shoes than a bedazzled dress… although I am working my way there. How many of you are feeling a bit more brave now that you are learning more about your personal style?? Comment below and let us know!
Thanks for reading, we sure love you guys and appreciate the support!
