It’s time to talk shoes!! Don’t we love shoes 🙂 The fall 2020 season is a season of comfort, practicality, and function. That being said, there is no reason we can’t rock the current shoe trends!

When it comes to shoes, fall 2020 is all about the rise of the square toe, stamped croc, the return of the lug sole (which I am skipping until winter), simple platform sneakers, and fabulous slippers. There is also a classic vibe in shoes; which brings back classic loafers, loafer pumps, and loafer slides.

While we all look at the current trends, and would love to rock them, sometimes we need to pick and choose in order to make our wardrobes work. This season, I am keeping things classic. I plan to rock the square toe, but on a simple pump. I am also re-wearing some shoes from previous seasons since they are either classic, or still on trend; such as platform sneakers, snakeskin boots, and slides.

The trends I am putting off for now include combat boots, lug sole loafers, log sole boots, and square toe sandals. I don’t really wear open toe in the fall, and I am not really in a lug sole mood; despite their emergence this season as an important trend. I want to keep my footwear simple and comfortable. My sneakers are super comfy, and of course these slippers will get a lot of use!

Boots are always comfortable, and these two pairs from last year are still on trend, and perfect to wear this autumn season. I invested in a new pair of loafers, since stamped croc is hotter than hot this season. These loafers will last several seasons since they are a classic style. Love that!

I’m excited to be able to re-wear so many shoes this season, and also have some variety to pair with my fall 2020 capsule wardrobe. When shopping your shoe closet for fall, look for classic styles such as loafers and neutral booties. If you have platform sneakers, rock them this season! Also, if you have any square toe pumps from last time they were hot, bring them back to the front of your closet.

What to invest in for fall 2020. If you don’t have shoes which fit into the current trends, I highly recommend investing in a pair of loafers, loafer slides, square toe pumps, platform sneakers, and fuzzy slippers. These are classic, or long lasting trends to look forward to for several seasons; if not years!

Summer 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe

It might not officially be summer 2020 yet, but the weather outside is telling me it it! We have had straight 90’s for several days, and my feet are screaming for summer footwear. So without further ado, here is my summer 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe!

I always love having a pair of espadrille slides I can throw on for almost any occasion. They are great for running errands, walking around, shopping, and heading out to an outdoor lunch. They are also great for a picnic since you can easily kick them on and off while sitting on the grass or a sandy beach. This pair is really comfortable and are quickly becoming my go-to shoe of the summer season.

My capsule wardrobe is also touching on several shoe trends for the summer season. This summer we are looking at the return of the square toe, chunky heels, platforms, all-white sneakers, and wedges. I have a pair which reflects each trend, and functions for every part of life.

As I mentioned above, these espadrille slides are my go-to shoes of the season. They are easy to kick on and off, and are really comfortable. If you buy one pair of shoes this summer, grab these! Of course, would it be summer without flip flops? These black flip flops have a small platform and are perfect to wear poolside, at the beach, or on hot days as sandals. Love them!

Summer 2020 sneaker trends

Sleek, white sneakers are all the rage this summer 2020 season. I love this pair from adidas. They are really comfortable and right on-trend. Of course this pair of Gucci platform sneakers have been in my arsenal for a few seasons already and are perfect when I feel like like being a little glitzy. Sneakers are a hot shoe this summer and are being shown with shorts, skirts, dresses, and pants. This is the summer of comfort shoes!

Summer 2020 shoe trends: the square toe

high heels summer 2020

Square toes were huge in the early 2000’s, and they are back! I love this pair because the leather is soft, and the sling-back keeps them cool on hot days. They are perfect for heading out to dinner on a patio at a restaurant. I am waiting for outdoor dining to open in our area so I can wear them! I am watching everyone else get to eat outside; I am patiently waiting our turn here in Santa Clara County.

These shoes look fabulous with a skirt or dress. Love them!

Summer 2020 espadrilles

espadrilles summer 2020

Espadrilles are my favorite hot weather footwear. For summer 2020, I have two pairs; wedges and slides. These wedges are a classic and they return every summer in neutral colors, as well as seasonal hues. I feel like they are such a good investment-and they are priced under $100! I think I have already talked about these fabulous slides a lot in this post, so I won’t keep going. haha

My summer 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe is perfect for the summer 2020 season, and it encapsulates several of the hottest shoe trends. In addition, the point of a capsule wardrobe is to not purchase a lot of new items each season.

A capsule wardrobe can evolve each season, combining classic items and seasonal items which can mixed and matched. It’s always a good thing to reduce what we consume, and only invest in items we can get a lot of wear out of. These espadrille wedges are going on their third season, and are a classic hot weather shoe worth investing in. My sneakers are from previous seasons, yet they are still hot and on trend for summer 2020. The flip flops are a classic style Tory Burch carries every year. I bought this pair last year, so they too are a great investment shoe. I highly recommend purchasing items which are wearable for more than one season; preferably more than two years!

Spring 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe

spring 2020 shoe trends

Are you loving this spring weather as much as I am? It’s so much fun to bring out my spring 2020 shoes! Since temperatures are in the 60’s and 70’s, it is time to ditch the booties, but not quite time to switch to sandals. For the spring season, I am keeping my feet covered, and keeping socks to a minimum.

Let’s talk about spring 2020 shoe trends! Sneakers are hot! I know, it sounds like you’ve heard it before, but spring’s sneaker game for spring 2020 is a little bit different than the street sneakers we saw in recent seasons. For spring 2020, sneakers are clean and white. Look for small metallic touches such as a stripe or small logo. Loud sneakers are over, clean white sneakers are in.

I am a huge espadrille fan. They are inherently soft, and easy to walk in. The two-tone wedges offer a dressy look for days when I want to up my game. One more casual days, my trusted and true ivory wedges are ideal. These multi-color espadrilles offer a small wedge so they can double as flats. They are all comfortable and soft. Love that!

Sometimes we need to dress up! Spring 2020 is all about the square toe, so instead of reaching for a classic pair of pumps from my closet, I splurged on a new and trendy pair for 2020. Since these slingbacks are black, they should carry me from spring to summer to fall. If you are looking for new pumps this season, make sure the toes are square! You’ll love them, there is more room at the top for your toes!

What are your favorite shoe trends this spring 2020 season? Are you excited for clean and white sneakers? Is the square toe a trend you can get behind?
