A lot ofpeople don’t think of their shoes as a conscious fashion statement. They see a cute shoe and they get it. However, I believe that the women with the greatest shoe style know that it takes more than a cute shoe in the store to show off their best assets.
Today’s celebrity shoe spotlight, Kim Kardashian, highlights this point. While she has a great variety of shoes, if you look close, you can clearly spot some patterns in her shoe wardrobe. Why else is she today’s shoe spotlight? Well, say whatever you want about Kimmy K – the woman definitely gives good shoe. See below for proof:

You can clearly see a few trends here, and it’s quite obvious Kim knows what looks good on her. With few exceptions (like the very first picture shown), she tends to stick with a nude or black pump. Even in the case when she goes for a more daring heel, like the leopard print peep toe pumps, they still have the nude and black in them. I would assume this is because nude and black pumps tend to elongate your legs, a task that Kim would surely love.
She also quite clearly enjoys a Christian Louboutin pump, but for those of us who can’t afford a wardrobe full of CL’s, the important thing to note is the style of shoe she prefers. There are certainly exceptions (and you should have those as well), but she’s clearly learned that a sleek pump looks good on her.The few times she has ventured to a more chunky or gladiator shoe, her legs have looked less defined and she’s managed to make herself look shorter.
Take a look through your closet today and see if you can pick out some of the trends amongst your shoes. If so, I would suggest concentrating on at least one of them and getting your variety elsewhere. For example, I like to have a closet with colors that can rival the rainbow, but I tend to go for a similar style of heel (stiletto) and body (sleek, no platform unless hidden). As a woman who stands at 5’1, those heels work best for me. After you’ve looked trough your closet, or if you just know off the top of your head, let me know what works best for you and why? Maybe we can help other women find their shoe style as we hone our own.
