We know we’re not the only ones who believe we could never have too many shoes. But, with our commitment to more mindful shopping and the knowledge that we just don’t have the wardrobe space to buy every pair we fall in love with, we’ve created our must-have list for Autumn/ Winter shoes to help make your new season shopping much easier.
We take our shoe purchases pretty seriously at Trading In Style, we know that each season we’ll have our go-to flats and heels which will take us through the coming months on high rotation, working back with our favourite outfits. Read on for your footwear essentials for the season ahead.
We’re not sure how we’d get dressed without a trusty pair of kicks. The most versatile of options, sneakers are about as comfortable as they get and have the ability to dress down even the chicest look. Choose from retro grandpa-style, embellished Golden Goose or a pair in a high-viz shade.
Cool high top
High tops have all the comfort of your trusty kicks, with an added edge – a little cooler, and are a little warmer for the cooler months ahead. We love a high top with a floral maxi topped with a chunky knit, or pair with your favourite jeans, this look will never go out of style.
Want to elevate a basic jeans and T-shirt look from day to night or work to dinner? Just add a statement heel and you’re ready. Whether you opt for vibrant colour, a statement print, or some “look-at-me” embellishment this pair will add chic to denim, maxi dresses, wide leg pants – and just the right amount of sexiness for an evening out.
We know that people have a love/ hate relationship with this style but we are 100% team fluffy side for the cooler months. The perfect Autumn alternative to our staple summer flats, they’re really comfortable which makes them perfect for running around in. Pair with your favourite denim or slouchy pants for a weekend look that’s as cosy as it is stylish.
It's no wonder that ankle boots are always a must – this style will be your “go everywhere” staple that are easy to pair with almost any Autumn/ Winter outfit. When it comes to boots, you’d be forgiven for splurging on a tan/ brown toned AND a black pair as this style goes with everything from jeans to skirts to dresses.
Eternally classic, loafers have proven year after year that they're wardrobe staples. Think of these as an office-to-off-duty alternative to sneakers, with a twist.
