How To Prep Your Shoes For F/W

One of the most frustrating things about the change in the seasons is the change in wardrobe and matching accessories. A lot of our favorite shoes from the past seasons will no longer suffice as we face the cooler temps ahead. Luckily, there are some really great styling options to extend your last season shoes into the Fall and Winter months. Also, shoutout to my friend Sunnie for inspiring me to write this post.

A quick tip to keep your toes warm is to pair your open toed or exposed upper/ vamp shoes with tights and socks. Socks are no longer only made in limited neutral colors and styles. No, today, we have options.

While you can find colorful socks and hoisery at many of your favorite retailers, a really cool brand to shop colored hoisery and socks is HUE. They have a great selection of colors and styles that will keep you inspired for the dark, cold days ahead.

Say, “YES!” to wearing all your platform, peep toed goodies all season long, and see my favorite ways to style my shoes for the Fall and Winter season below to inspire your next shoe look. A lot of these looks are not for the faint of heart, but like William Traynor said in the film Me Before You (I adore that movie!), “Live BOLDY!”

Colorful Socks

Socks are so fun to play with. They come in a variety of lengths and prints, giving you the opportunity to mix and match your favorite colors. Go bold and add a color blocking sock to your look. Keep it safe and go for a monochrome look that adds another level to your chic-o-meter.


Now, I know hosiery makes you think of old church ladies and your old school 90s girls’ dresses for those super hot Easter services, but stockings have become much more comfy and stylish with the latest colors, styles, and textures they now offer. From super sheer to opaque, experiment with them all to see which will be the easiest to implement.

Fishnet Action

Now, these are a classic stocking style. They are edgy and feminine with an element of danger that just keeps ’em interesting. You will always be on trend with this timeless style.

The best way to start implementing colorful footwear accessories like these is to start with basic fall/ winter colors. Oxblood, burnt orange, dark teal would all be really easy to experiment with.  But whatever you choose, strut your colorful calves like Louisa Clark in her infamous bumble bee tights, and I’m sure you’ll light up whatever room you enter.
