FM40 STYLE | CAPSULE WARDROBE - PART 5


S H O E S

I posted this picture the other day on Instagram to highlight the black trousers, but I must say the photo got a love for the shoes. 

Shoes are my weakness too, when I enter a large department store and I will always head to the shoe department first. So editing this post has been VERY hard for me to narrow down what you will need for a capsule wardrobe. 

Shoes are a game changer ...... wear a flat ballet pump or trainer of a day and simply change your shoes and you could be ready for a night on the town.

Let's start with flat shoes ....... If you are to keep to a traditional French inspired capsule wardrobe, you will need a ballet pump. I would say start with black, look to brands like French SoleRussell & Bromley and Chanel which I would love a pair in every colour...... #dreamon. 
Here are some affordable options. 

SHOP BLACK BALLET PUMPS

As I mentioned before, shoes can be a game changer and a statement flat,  a splash of leopard or a mid heel such like the Valentino tango shoes Emmanuelle Alt wears above -  which are just totally gorgeous. If the Valentino are out of your budget (yes .... 😞sadly mine too), then look at these (oops my finger may have slipped buy on these) and these which are both fabulous Valentino look-a-likes.



SHOP STATEMENT FLATS

I never thought 7 years ago that I would be wearing trainers as daywear, before kids I owned one pair that were reserved for the small amounts of physical activity I do. Now, it's a different story I have high tops (Converse are the best at these) and two pairs of white low tops. There is something for everybody depending on whether you are a Converse fan, a Superga fan or an Adidas fan, they look great with either ankle grazing jeans and black pants.

SHOP TRAINERS

Before we get to heels you will need black ankle boots, I am a boho western girl lover myself and I wear my Isabel Marant Dickers endlessly. When looking for what boot is for you an important thing to consider is heel height, you want something that you can run around all day in and a boot that will look equally good with jeans, trousers and dresses.

Heels ..... LOVE THEM! I sadly don't get to wear them as much as I used to, I just love how they can elevate you to instant glamour. Now, this is were I have had to restrain myself .... for a capsule wardrobe the basic heels you will need are a black court shoe and a black strappy heel, once you have them THEN you can add more party shoes to your collection.

SHOP BLACK COURT SHOES 



A black barely there sandal is also a great versatile shoe to own, I have a pair from Office that I love ..... the main thing with a capsule wardrobe is the items you buy are able to mix and match with and this type of shoe works equally well with a cocktail dress or jeans.




SHOP BLACK HEELED SANDALS



Once you have all of the above in your shoe closet THEN it's time for fun ..... building your shoe collection with the show stoppers. 

 Have a wonderful weekend

P.S I haven't even discussed summer shoes, but all you need is a great pair of tan sandals and pair of classic espadrilles
