If you’re no stranger to a well-curated minimalist wardrobe, then you understand the importance of having a few go-to shoes that you can pair with nearly anything. While we recommend sticking with neutral colors such as black, white, and tan, there’s no harm in trying new things, right? Let’s delve into other pairs of shoes that go with everything.
1. Nude Boots
If you’re on the quest for a favorite go-to that meshes well with nearly any outfit, then nude boots wrap up your search. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to versatility and comfort. Therefore, you can dress up even the comfiest outfit and spend the day in them without itching to take them off. Nude boots are also cost-effective, as the only time you’ll need to replace them is when they wear out.
2. White Sneakers
It’s no secret that the classic white sneaker has made a comeback in the fashion world, including the chunky Women’s K-Swiss CMFs that kids used to wear back in the early 2000s and late 90s. While you might own a pair of white converse shoes, this white sneaker might infuse excitement into your life. They’re not as tacky and massive as those you probably donned in middle school when you wanted to be a Spice Girl.
3. Black Loafers
When you hear the word ‘loafers’ the first thing that comes to mind is something unsightly and chunky that you wouldn’t want to be a part of since it stems from the word ‘loaf.’ Nonetheless, a pair of black loafers (shudders) or black mules is a classic.
