The Victorian woman's wardrobe was divided into a dizzying array of categories. Morning, visiting, walking, evening, traveling, shopping, and mourning are just some of the activities and circumstances that demanded a dedicated ensemble. Understanding the difference between a dress for morning and a dress for traveling was valuable knowledge that helped a woman maintain her social standing and good reputation. For those women who needed help unraveling the specifics of dress and social etiquette, guidebooks such as The Ladies' Book of Etiquette, and Manual of Politeness (1872) and Etiquette: What To Do, and How To Do It (1885) offered detailed tips on polite manners and proper dress. Generally speaking, most 19th century etiquette manuals urge women to avoid excessively showy dress, and to ensure that accessories, fabric, hairstyle and other details are harmonious and suitable for the occasion. Though etiquette manuals offer startlingly detailed guidelines regarding most aspects of dress, they barely mention footwear. This is also true of the leading 19th century fashion magazines Godey's and Harper's Bazaar; these publications mentioned footwear, but relatively infrequently.
