Here’s a glimpse into its remarkable and revealing shoe profiles and the related fashion choices:
1. Strappy Sandal
She loves skirts and feminine styles. Flowing clothes in beautiful soft fabrics are her staples. You’ll most likely find her wearing muted jewel tones and you’ll rarely see her in black unless it’s accessorized with a fabulous accent price. She owns tons of scarves and uses them to keep her wardrobe interesting and current. She never overlooks a chance to show a little skin as well…just to keep it interesting.
She’s happiest in tried-and-true classic clothes that don’t need to be replaced every season. It’s efficient time-wise and gives her an air of understated style. Trousers, pencil skirts, cashmere sweaters, and the perfectly cut blazer fill her closet. She loves a pricey purchase and seeks out designer labels, even though some of them are “previously owned.” Whether it’s shoes, clothes, or accessories, full price or discount, to her quality clothes are a sound business decision.
If it’s not casual and oh-so-comfortable, it’s not her. She loves soft fabrics like linen and rayon. Soft cotton T-shirts and tank tops are a staple in her wardrobe. She usually gravitates to sea glass or desert colors such as aqua, pale yellow, faded greens, mauve, and taupes-any colors that make her feel like she’s wearing nature.
She loves to wear separates rather than “outfits.” You’ll usually find her wearing either a sweater or a jacket. She doesn’t wear things that are flashy or trendy. Such styles just don’t suit her because they make her feel exposed. She prefers neutral colors-black. Gray, and beige-but she will sometimes take a chance, adding color wit5h a pair of shoes—her flats of courage.
5. High-Heels Boot
She loves short skirts, long skirts, any kind of skirts. She will tend to dress up more often than most women. Even on weekends she looks put together and rarely goes out without her high heels on. She’s not a fan of the. “I just got off the couch and decide to go to lunch” look. In her tailored clothes and classic styles, she stands out and usually towers over everyone else.
6. Running Shoes
She will not live without running shoes. Only buy the best for the feet! Most of the time, she’s comfortable in her running shoes and not too many occasions take her out of them. They are a part of her. She loves natural fabrics that breathe. Comfortable clothes, not necessarily loose fitting, but stretch fabrics are her preference. Bright colors, even neon, are fine for this moving force of nature! She will dress up if the occasion calls for it. She may not like it, but she’ll do it.
She likes dressing in separates. Nothing but the best, thank you very much, but it’s important that each piece not stand out. She loves black, navy, and gray. Those are her go-to colors, but she also has that signature pastel that all her friends know is her color. She may accessorize with a new or pre-owned. Herme’s scarf or an inherited diamond pendant, but occasionally she’ll through in a quirky piece of jewelry or a trendy top, just to keep it interesting!
She doesn’t care about name-brand labels and she doesn’t have a need for designer clothes, Seriously, where is she going to wear them, anyway? Give her comfortable clothes she can move in-and feel good in. And make them organic if she can afford it. Don’t even think about putting her in a coordinated outfit. Separates are her life and they are never all matchy-matchy. If she needs to dress up, she goes monochromatic and puts on beautiful earrings from her travels.
She loves silk, beautiful pencil skirts, deep rich colors, gem-tones, or fabulous pastels. As long as the fabrics are soft and the clothes make a statement, she’s happy. She loves fabulous jewelry, too, and whether it’s real or costume, the bigger the better, bold necklaces, large dangle earrings, great rings, and an arm full of bangles.
10. Furry Boot
She likes a lot of looks as long as they’re casual. She’s comfortable in shorts and a T-shirt, a short skirt and a puffy vest, or even sweats. Just don’t make her dress up in something traditional, like a suit or blazer because she won’t be happy.
