It’s no secret that I obsess over the trendiest items of the moment, but at the end of the day, I honestly prefer to splurge a little more on pieces that are going to last beyond one or two seasons. Footwear is one of those categories I stand by when it comes to investment pieces. They can really anchor an outfit and help transition your wardrobe from one season to the next. One of my favorite brands, Stuart Weitzman, has plenty of options right now that strike the perfect balance of classic and trendy, which means you can pretty much wear them through fall. While we still have sandal season ahead of us, I’m already looking to pre-fall shoe styles that I can take advantage of now. I wanted to share those must-have shoes styles with you guys since I’m sure they’re bound to sell out quickly.
Espadrilles will always be a staple part of my summer shoe rotation! The MARGUERITA wedge is seriously perfect when you want that extra bit of height mixed with everyday comfort. I cannot get over how feminine the ankle ribbon detail is. Although this is typically a warm weather shoe, you can certainly style it into the fall season with a chunky sweater and some vintage denim. It’s available in red and peach too, which is perfect if you want to add a playful touch to your outfits.
Whether it’s 100 degrees or a little brisk out, every woman needs a sensible, yet flirty pair of shoes she can quickly slip into. The LULAH mules are so versatile, especially if you need an office-to-weekend shoe. They add a little class to any type of look – and will last forever given the superb quality of Stuart Weitzman shoes. Keep it simple with a black suede style that can conform to any outfit, spice up your summer (or fall) attire with a bold houndstooth print or a bright raspberry pink color.
Lug Sole Loafers
Stuart Weitzman’s iconic MANILA loafers got an upgrade for the upcoming season. With this shoe, it is all about the detail. The thick lug sole adds some edge to your everyday looks – and they’re so trendy too. The tassels are now adorned with gold hardware, which helps keep the shoe traditional and preppy. You can wear these with your tailored summer suit or midi skirt to kick it up a notch – or take it into fall with your favorite cropped trousers.
If you are not into the thick, heavy sole look, the PAYSON loafer is a timeless alternative that is honestly wearable year-round. It’s the epitome of a polished shoe that will simply never go out of style. The minimal design and sleek suede, make it wearable with anything from denim to dresses to tailored separates. Rock them with some cropped boyfriend jeans for a relaxed weekend look, or pair them with your favorite mini skirt. I love the tan color for maximum versatility, but you can always go for a bolder color like bright pink, red, or green.
When it comes to casual comfort and ease, you have to go for a chic slide sandal. The JUANITA slides are all about functionality meets fashion. The hardware buckles really elevate these above your typical slides and can be dressed up or down. Wear them to the pool or the park but don’t be afraid to keep them out come fall! Since they’re available in black, white, and pink, you can find one that works regardless of your style preference.
