Yes, trends are very fun to look at and partake in, but you also have to know which ones work for you. After all, whatever you decide to buy should be something that you can wear repeatedly and will last in your closet for more than just a few fleeting months. I’m one of those people who always starts with shoes when it comes to investing in more timeless wardrobe items, focusing on styles you can throw on at a moment’s notice but still look pulled together. In my mind, a less trend-driven footwear game means I’ll have so many more ways to wear my shoes.
When looking for shoes that largely avoid the current trend cycle, think of basic heels that still look luxe, sneaker styles that have stood the test of time, buttery-soft leather boots, and flats that act as an effortless final touch to any outfit. Below, I rounded up all of those and more anti-trend shoes from Nordstrom, so you can shop to your heart’s content without sacrificing versatility. Step to it!
