I have never been one to follow trends, so I was hesitant to title this post the way that I have, but to be fair, it’s my job to keep you all in the know on what’s happening in the fashion industry, what to buy and where to get it at a great price.
I was looking through pictures and realized that I have been wearing the same five types of shoes all season long. Without fail, my shoe rotation is pretty consistent. No complaints here though because I have been able to style each shoe so many different ways and try new looks.
The shoe trends I’m loving this season are probably pretty obvious if you follow me on social media, but I’m excited to share more about them here!
Pop of Color
Bold colors are a great way to add a POP to your outfit. I do this a lot with shoes. This shoe trend was something I noticed while reading fashion magazines and also fellow influencer blogs that highlight shoe trends. My favorite shoe that adds a bold pop of color is the —-. I wore these for my DSW launch photoshoot. They are so comfortable and the color is out of this world. The pinkest, pink I ever did see!
I wore these for the first time on my trip to Santa Fe with Erborian, and now 2 months later, here we are … I’m still wearing them. I style my combat boots with jeans, skirts and even dresses. My #1 style tip for this shoe is to not be afraid to pair it with something you wouldn’t normally think would work. I literally just put them on with whatever I’m wearing and it usually works out. Be adventurous! Plus these shoes are SO incredibly comfortable, your feet will thank you.
I feel like I am so late to this shoe trend, but if there’s a bandwagon – I’m definitely the captain. Dad sneakers are.my.jam! I’ve worn them with so many different types of outfits. You can find cute pairs at varying price points, which is amazing because let’s face it … we can’t all buy Balenciaga’s! Fila is having a moment right now and I’m kind of here for it. The other pair that I own is by — . My younger sister and I both got a pair. We were supposed to do a sister shoot while she was in town last, but the shoes didn’t quite get here in time, so stay tuned for that because … #wecuteboo! haha
Over The Knee Boots
Over the knee boots are a classic shoe trend that make their return season after season. I have two pairs of this style of boot – grey and black. I like the brands I chose because they stay up on my leg with ease, I don’t have to worry about the boot sliding down throughout the day. I recently styled them for the first time with pants. I have always worn them with a dress or a skirt because I didn’t like how they looked with jeans, but I found a way to try it out that didn’t drive the stylist in me crazy.
So, I have a confession. I might be addicted to these boots. I have worn them so much that when I was looking at my planned posts for Instagram, I told myself … maybe slow down on the white boots. Sock booties are so perfect for the fall/winter season and can be worn so many different ways. Most recently, I styled them with a work look, because so many of you said you wanted to see more of that! The pair that I am wearing is by Stuart Weitzman, they come in a variety of colors and (like all the other styles I shared) can be worn with anything your heart desires. I’ll share a few ways that I’ve styled mine below!
