Shoes are always fun to shop for. If you lose or gain weight, your size remains the same! Shoes can make you taller and make a statement about your current mood or personality. Shoe also happen to be more expensive than clothing in many cases, therefore, it is important to look for a pair of shoes which will last longer than one season.
Pantone has given us the top ten colors for fall 2013; and many of these colors are exactly the same or similar to, some of the hottest colors in the spring 2013 color palette. This makes finding a fabulous pair of shoes which will last through 2013 and into early 2014 easy! Nothing can make a pair of shoes look more dated than the color; unless you are looking at the toe or the sole. Below is the fall 2013 color palette:
That’s right, the next two important factors in finding a shoe which will last through next year is picking the right toe and the right sole. Since heel heights are all over the board, as well as heel thickness, it will be difficult to go wrong in the heel department. (One potential shoe shopping problem-not an issue this year!)
The “IT” toe for spring 2013, as well as fall 2013, is the pointed toe. Pointed toe pumps are definitely the “IT” shoe of the season, and since they are closed toe, these beauties will work perfectly in the fall and winter seasons. Love this!
The next factor to consider when shopping for investment shoes is the sole. Although we all love a platform pump which rises up to new heights, platforms are on their way down to new lows. 2013 and 2014 will be all about the single sole, or flat soled, shoe. If you love platforms, keep your shoes from last year and re-wear them this year. This is not the time to invest in a new pair of sky-high platforms.
We found a few fabulous spring shoes which will also be perfect for fall 2013 and winter 2014 around the web and assembled them into this article.
