There are certain shoes for fall and winter that need to be making an appearance in your closet right about now. You may already have some of these shoes for fall and winter and that is wonderful because it will save you from going on a hunt for them. If you don’t have them, it is the perfect time to go shopping. You could even add some of them to your Christmas list. The main thing is that you add at least some of these shoes to your fall and winter wardrobe.
1. The Nude Heel
One of the top choices in shoes for fall and winter is the nude heel. The nude heel is a great replacement for all of those strappy sandals that you just packed away. The nude heel is so very versatile. You can wear it with practically any color and it will look stunning. It will go from the office to date night in a very carefree way.
2. The Riding Boot
If I could only have one pair of shoes from this list, this would be it. And I would take it in cognac brown, please. This type of boot is the style of the year. Women are wearing them everywhere: to work; to play; and everything in between. You can wear them with practically anything. They go with dresses, skirts and especially work well with skinny jeans.
3. The Black Flat
The black flat is a wardrobe staple that most of us already have, but that is a good thing. We return to this shoe time and time again for one reason: it works. The black flat is a great casual go-to shoe when you really don’t know what shoe to choose. One tip I have for you if you are shopping for a new pair this year; go for comfort. I am all for looks but if I am going to wear a flat, I would like it to feel good when I have it on.
4. The Rain Boot
Oh, rain boots, how I love them! No, they are not exactly the shoe on the runway this season but they are so convenient when you are trudging through the mud and the muck that come with fall and winter. I usually keep mine by the front door because I regularly wear them to drive my children to school. And rain boots have actually come a long way. No longer must you endure boring muted black. Now they come in fabulously bright shades and patterns that will earn you compliments.
5. The Dressy Stilleto
The dressy stiletto is a shoe that is nice to have in your closet but may not make a frequent appearance. However, it is a nice addition to have. This shoe usually comes out for holiday events and parties on New Year’s Eve. Usually women go for this shoe in black or silver to keep up with the dressy look they are going for. This shoe is not one that you go for comfort it; the goal of the dressy stiletto is all style.
6. The Trendy Shoe
The trendy shoe is an extra but no less necessary. It is something totally different you purchase to spice up your wardrobe. It will be different for everyone. As for myself, I am lusting after a pair of wedge heels in a burgundy plum shade. Purchasing these little extras, such as the trendy shoe, can really punch up your wardrobe to the next level.
7. The House Slipper
Ah, yes, the house slipper. Some may argue that this one is not necessary but I would totally disagree. When I get home from a hard day out fighting the elements, I have to have my soft, cushy house slippers. They don’t have to be expensive to serve the purpose. Mine came from Wal-Mart and are a gorgeous aqua leopard print.
