Flats – Louboutins, Pointy Toes, Ballet Flats
A neutral pair of flats is of course a closet must-have, and as a more comfortable alternative to pointy toes, I highly recommend these Louboutins, or check out these ballet flats, which are very close to the Chanel style. As a great pair of neutral heels, these Sam Edelman heels are a closet must-have.
With the Lug Sole Chelsea Boots
As a chunky no-lace alternative to my trusty SE combat boots, I opted for their Laguna Chelsea boots after seeing so many rave reviews around IG. These have a popping silhouette with a square toe and lug sole, and tons of color options. I wanted a light colored neutral boot to go with my winter whites and creams. When you first start wearing them a few times, I recommend wearing taller socks so that the shaft doesn’t rub against your leg. A friend shared that she recently wore these shoes on a vacation to Europe and walked for miles in snowy weather!
Wearing Converse sneakers
It took decades, but the local sneaker brand finally piqued my interest and I’ve been loving my black and white pair! They work especially well with straight leg jeans as an ankle-covering sneaker option. I opted for the Converse Lift All Star style – a platform that adds some comfort and height, but not so high that I feel like I’m going to twist my ankle. Fit-wise, these run a little big, so go a little smaller between half sizes, and the Converse have a narrower toe. Many of you also recommend leather chunky shoes as a chic alternative to canvas shoes.
