Shoe shopping has to be one of my top 5 favorite things to shop for! I personally believe that you can never have too many shoes. And with the change in seasons, we get to incorporate more shoes that we haven’t been able to wear for awhile, like boots! Finding shoes that I can walk long distances in the city in is also a tough feat, but I’m always up for it. Particularly, I’m looking forward to the cooler season and all of the booties I will be styling with new outfits!
Here’s how I narrow down my shopping for new shoes and the top 15 shoes to shop from for the upcoming season:
Trends come and go, but they’re really fun! I think it’s all about intentions when it comes to purchasing items that are trendy. Because they sometimes are only in style for a short period of time, you want to find ways to keep them useful in your closet and that can be by them being a pop of color or pattern to any outfit or simply because you are comfortable in them! A few trends I’m noticing for the fall are clogs, cream boots and knee high boots. All of which are totally trends that are here to stay for awhile– or at least will be back in style in just a few short years!
Practicality is everything, especially living in NYC. I want to have shoes that I can not only be comfortable getting from point a to point b in, but shoes that I will get a ton of wear out of. Our closets are only so big here! But seriously, it’s good to be able to get enough wear out of the items we purchase. So often I hear people say “oh I only wore those once” and I would rather make purchases on items I know I will get enough use of. Otherwise, what’s the purpose of getting them?! Furthermore, practical shoes can mean several things.
Everyday: Everyday wear is great to shop for! And shoes that can take you from day to night time are amazing, especially if you live in a big city and have less shoe storage space. There are a ton of booties that are comfortable and stylish for fall and can be dressed up or down.
Going Out: This is where the heels come in! But the shoes that you’ll reach for most nights. These can be knee high boots, chunky heeled booties, cream colored booties, essentially any fall colored heel.
We can sometimes go overboard when it comes to shopping for new pairs of shoes. Furthermore, we’ve all done it and it’s easy to get excited and carried away. Creating a budget for the season to shop with can aid in this. You can shop for practical shoes and spend less on them to get more or splurge on the one’s you’ve had your eye on and just get a ton of wear out of them. There’s really no wrong way to go about it, it’s all about how you’re feeling and what you think you need and want in your closet. Finally, if you have enough everyday shoes, go for that fun pair! And rock them!
