We love the simplicity of a capsule wardrobe. With just a few carefully chosen pieces, you can put together outfit after outfit; it’s a great time- and money-saver.
That’s why we decided to put together a warm-weather shoe capsule – to help you choose just a few pairs of shoes that will work with all your outfits, whatever you’re up to this summer.
Our Shoe Capsule Wardrobe (Spring / Summer 2017) is a downloadable PDF that lays out this year’s 6 essential shoe categories, then points you to our top picks in each category. To see the picks, we provide you with a custom search keyword that you input into our search engine. This lets you easily see our picks and, since we’ll be adding shoes to the list all summer, the selections will always be available and will generally still have plenty of sizes.
Ready to download the capsule? Just input your email address in the yellow box below and we’ll email you instructions for downloading the PDF and seeing all our picks for each segment. Or, keep reading to learn how we chose which shoes to include.
We looked through a LOT of shoes to come up with our picks in each category. Our database contains around 125,000 pairs of shoes; by searching based on style, trend, and appearance, we culled 50 or so picks in each category that we think are beautiful, high in quality, and a good value for the money.
Note, too, that our capsule reflects style advice from the top names in the fashion business, including Vogue, O the Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, Glamour, and the New York Times. By relying on these trusted sources, we can make sure the shoes we highlight are not only stylish but also satisfy the real-world requirements of women like you who want to look good and feel great as you go about your day.
One note on our capsule: Nobody needs to tell you that nude pumps are a must-have, or that flip flops come in handy in summer. So, our capsule doesn’t include the obvious. Instead, it’s a useful guide with a fun vibe; it includes both mainstream and quirky suggestions for versatile shoes that’ll put a smile on your face often – because you’ll be wearing them often.
