What’s in your closet?

NannisWith the fall fashion season just around the corner, it’s time to start taking a shoe inventory. For many, fall is the start of  a new busy season where the light at the end of the tunnel looks a lot like — dare I say it — Christmas. Hopefully, with a thorough assessment of your current shoe status, when fall gets here you’ll be able to hit the ground running, so to speak. Fashion author Samantha Cabrera says there are some “must-haves” styles for any closet regardless of the season, so take a moment to round up any shoes gone astray and head to your closet to give it a once-over. Then ask yourself: Do I have the following shoes in my closet?

Basic black pumps. Cabrera reminds readers to err conservatively with this pair of shoes — anything too sexy or eye-catching makes them less versatile — since these are your default shoes for social-, work-, and pleasure-related events (I, of course, couldn’t resist recommending just a little flair as seen pictured top, right).


Metallic sandals with straps. These are perfect for adding a little pizazz to your look. Perhaps not as practical in colder fall and winter climates, but these sandals will continue to be popular in the years to come.


Flats. These shoes have definitely become a fashion staple since they are so diverse — there’s practically a perfect flat for every woman on any given occasion.


Tall boots. — As we mentioned earlier on Shoeflyer, tall boots are going to be hot this coming fall. Aside from that fact, boots are to fall and winter what sandals are to spring and summer, so you’ve simply got to own a pair.


Neutral wedges. Cabrera concludes her “must-haves” by offering an option to incorporate neutral-toned wedges into your wardrobe. They won’t work for everyone, but they can add a little controlled diversity to your everyday attire.

If you’ve found yourself a little short after your initial closet assessment or you’re just ready for a new look, try our recommendations pictured above — or you could always try to find something better.
