Amal Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Moss—what do they all have in common? Aside from topping our list of the chicest celebrities over 40, they've all honed in on a strong sense of personal style, and their consistent fashion choices are proof of that. Since celebs over a certain age have figured out their style better than most, it's only natural that they would each have items they wear constantly—and ones that they tend to avoid wearing.

Curious about how they've come to define their own style, we did some research and found seven of 2019's major shoe trends this stylish group is passing on along with the shoe style each of them wears nonstop. Angelina Jolie and Amal Clooney, for instance, always opt for more timeless and classic shoe styles that reflect the rest of their look rather than the most daring trendy styles of the moment. With that in mind, scroll down to see which shoes these stylish over-40 celebrities are wearing and shop similar styles.
