  1. I agree! I did recently buy some animal print booties! They are really eye catching! I think they are work appropriate but not something just anyone would wear. I am more daring than most people though. I did learn recently that you should balance out a really eye catching shoe with the rest of your outfit and not just wear all black. I got cheetah and zebra booties! I think they are elegant AND eye catching! 😃

  2. I totally agree with you Gemma. I have never liked the UG boots, don’t know why they’re still around even if they are comfortable. I see too much sloppiness and way too casual outfits in society. We need more elegance and decorum. It’s a sign of respect for oneself and others. Thanks Gemma 👏👏👏

  3. Every shoe has its place. It’s a matter of making the right pairing between outfit and footwear. For example, platforms and wedges are great with wide leg pants that really elongate your legs, and they could have even worked with your dress. If you are going to walk on grass, you definitely need a shoe with a flat base. Other than that I agree with the rest. Good video. ❤️

  4. Beautiful choices for the right shoes to wear; classic, timeless choices that combine well with outfits. Thank you! 🥿👡👢it was great to see a side by side right and wrong, choices.

  5. Style is not about safe choices, it is about personal choices and intuition. hat is what legendary Vogue editor in chief Diane Vreeland meant when she wrote “A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste—it’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I’m against.” and “Style—all who have it share one thing: originality.” Beautiful leather Biker boots and embellished wellmade whimsical shoes are great, as long as they as you know how to style and wear them, but they do not come cheap. Carole de Maigret and Patti Smith know how to wear biker boots with jeans and beautifully cut jackets and sweaters and eccentrics like Daphne Guiness and Iris Apfel know how to wear embellished shoes. Be an original, and have a little fun.

  6. I can agree with all but #2. Uggs are a staple in my winter wardrobe. They come in a variety of styles and colors. Elegant women deserve to be warm and comfortable and Uggs are the perfect go to when needed.

  7. I love this! Thank you! Finally someone who appreciates class and elegance, not the trailer trash garbage that is accepted in our society as “fashion.”

  8. I agree with all your points minus the Ugg boots. When it’s really cold, they look very appropriate. Perhaps not “elegant”, but I’d rather be warm and comfy than elegant when it’s freezing outside. Also, I think an elegant lady should not wear over the knee boots. Those seem very “street walker” to me. I think that should have been part of the list rather than the Uggs. Also, I liked how you are confident enough to point out your own fashion faux pas. We all make them from time to time, like me with my Uggs :0P

  9. Gemma, I agree with you one hundred percent! I’m over fifty and I love my shoes, however, none are over two inches. None of my shoes are embellished, nor do I wear Uggs, or slippers, outside. I believe that shoes are like the exclamation point of the outfit. It’s the very last thing a person sees so they should be elegant and memorable. Blessings 💖💖💖

  10. I love this ❤️🥰 you have been such a help in finding peices to help me put together a wardrobe. I’m 24 and really love elegant, classic fashion. I had such trouble with shoes but one of your videos was the greatest help! Thank you love ❤️

  11. I appreciate your advice and opinion here. I do love the lug sole trend with the skinnier ankles. it didn’t take too long for me to pull it off. However, I did end up returning biker/moto boots because you’re right, the shaft is mostly clunky and doesn’t do anything to elongate the legs.

  12. I accidentally found this video and after watching it this made me feel so proud, my mom’s style is so classic and sweet, and I’m going to describe her, she always wear white or lighter colors dress trousers with elegant white chiffon blouses, lighter colors belts and elegant and classic nude or white high heels or sling back shoes, she wears nude or light pink or brown elegant purses with a discreet gold jewelry, it looks amazing with her straight and blonde hair and her discreet makeup style 💕💕♥️
    She’s the most elegant and gorgeous woman I ever met 🤧

  13. My takeaways: Elegant shoes are (a) possible to *walk* in without fear of breaking an ankle; and (b) simple, sleek and discreet. However, in my opinion, footwear must also be situationally appropriate: Wearing kitten heels in a blizzard, or ballet flats to cycle 35k would be insane. In a downpour, wellies; in a Canadian winter, insulated boots; and on a 10k walk, sturdy hiking shoes with excellent traction– although none of these shoe styles could be considered “elegant”. Slavish devotion to ‘elegance’ — just like slavish devotion to branded ‘fashion’– can sometimes be the antithesis of true style: some days demand colourful, eye-catching, comment-provoking footwear– although in that case, the rest of the outfit shouldn’t compete!
