Shoe Trends that Will Last Thru the Year
We’ve all heard of clothing staples – a good pair of pants, a white tee and a jacket. But what about shoe staples? Feet need some loving too. We’ve rounded up some styles that will outlive and outlast shoe trends and become go-tos in your wardrobe. With these three pairs of shoes, you’ll easily rock the part all year.
1. The Black Ankle Boot
Become your own boot scootin’ lady with a rocking pair of black ankle boots. These transseasonal babies will take you through autumn to spring and beyond. Comfortable and snug, black ankle boots have become a core classic. Usually with a slip-on back or zip detail, these boots are made to be worn all day, then all night. Choose one with a sturdy block heel and your legs will thank you for it. They’re workplace appropriate but also flattering enough to take on a night out. Patent leather varieties are a current shoe trend – they offer an extra wow factor. Click-clack your way through town looking and feeling great.
2. The White Sneaker
Hold the yawn and hear us out. A pair of white sneakers is essential for any wardrobe and any style, regardless of shoe trends. Flared jeans, mini skirt or cigarette pants? White sneakers pair effortlessly. A midi dress or a blazer look? White sneakers will loosen up the formal ensemble. If funky socks are your thing, they’ll stand out when worn with trainers. Or if you’re on the ‘no sock’ sock train, leave a gap of skin showing between your pants and sneakers. This simple move will give proportion and shape to wide-legged pants. White is a fail safe colour choice that will withstand shoe trends. We’re talking about the chunky sneaker that’s currently on the outs…
3. The Closed Toe Sandal
When the weather heats up, let your feet breathe. Flats, sandals, heels, mules… Whatever your style or shoe trend, having one pair of closed-toe shoes is a must. Comfort is priority, we’ve all had a pair of ghastly uncomfortable sandals with an unnecessary number of straps. Closed toe shoes are easy to throw on without the worry and fuss of pedicures or chipped nail polish. A small heel or none at all will make standing on your feet for hours much easier. So these little babies also rock your look from day to night. Wear with summer dresses, linen dresses and anything in between.
