I am very strategic when it comes to what pieces of clothing and accessories I splurge on. Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to what they like to spend their money on, but I always advise my clients to pick and choose carefully because some pieces are trendy and won't be in style past one season. For example, I am a big proponent of splurging on handbags because a nice handbag can instantly make any outfit look amazing. When it comes to shoes, for the most part I think along the same lines with some exceptions. Since living in NYC, I realize how much of a beating my shoes take. Between the subway, dirty sidewalks, winter elements and grates my shoes always end up looking beat up. I think that there are certain shoes that are worth the high-end price tag and others where you are better off getting the look for less. If the shoe is super trendy like these embroidered Gucci loafers or studded pearl shoes, I recommend getting the less expensive version because they probably won't be in style for more than a few seasons. On the flip side, a classic pair of black pumps or over the knee boots that you will wear over and over again are worth spending a little more on because you get more use out of them. Shoes that are more expensive are usually made with higher quality materials so they tend to wear a lot better than a synthetic shoe would from Zara. Today I have rounded up some of the biggest shoe trends right now at both a higher and lower price point. Happy shopping!
