Shoe & boot trends don't change as dramatically as you might think, so yes, those ankle boots or wedge heels from a couple of season ago can still be enoyed. But if you're looking for something new, or a quick update to your existing wardrobe, a color block shoe or boot will give you a fun little kick (figuratively speaking, of course!). The type of shoe will depend on your own lifetyle - flats, pumps, ankle boots and even tall boots.
If you work in an office, basic pumps and ankle boots will be your shoe style of choice, but how a pair of neat menswear-inspired brogues or flats? A color block version will breathe new life into your current staples - it will add some colour to a crisp white shirt and black slimfit trousers. The ankle boot will look terrific with a knit dress, skirt & blouse combo, or even paired with a casual knit over leggings. If you have a day-to-night event, go for bold colors - suede color-block platform pumps, peep toes or even Mary Janes will look formal (and fun) enough for any occasion.
And let's not forget the wedge heel, which remains one of the most versatile looks - they add style to a simple tee & skinny jeans, and can update a black mini skirt with opaque tights.
