Out-of-Vogue Shoe Trends to Cast Aside

We all know about fashion’s cyclical nature, but this pattern does not always apply. Some shoe trends become hopelessly obsolete and impractical. Today, we will talk about what footwear has lost its relevance and what shoes to opt for instead. Please remember that it is best not to let outdated shoes lie in your closet for years. Donate gently worn used shoes to those in need: shelters, charity, etc., or look for companies collecting old shoes for recycling.

Today’s stylists strongly advise buying minimalistic and sensible shoes that will go with just about everything in your wardrobe and forgetting about footwear with rhinestones, animal prints, and bright inserts. Besides, never forget to consider the weather. With temperatures below freezing, stiletto heels on autumn and winter footwear may not be the best idea. If you do opt for accent shoes, keep in mind that it might be harder to incorporate them into an everyday look. Without further ado, here are five out-of-vogue shoe trends to cast aside.

Open-Toe Stiletto Heels

These shoes were once considered very charming. Here you have an elegant stiletto heel and virtually invisible straps. Today, though, this wardrobe piece looks more vulgar than attractive. Style experts recommend opting for closed shoes with block heels.

Over-the-Knee Black Boots

Most often than not, over-the-knee boots look good only on taller women. They tend to visually shorten the legs of more petite ladies, somewhat spoiling the overall look. By the way, over-the-knee boot colors other than black will be trendy in 2021.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
