Which Shoes Are In And Out In 2023

The easiest way to bring your wardrobe up to date each season is to make a couple of accessory swaps throughout the year, especially when it comes to footwear. Investing in a quality, on trend shoe will elevate your whole wardrobe without you having to change up the rest of your wardrobe.

Trending shoes in 2023, footwear style

In: The Chunky Flat Boot/Moto Boot

Out: The Sock Boot

The sock boot had had it's moment and in it's place we have a solid soled, flat, mid calf boot in it's place. These are super comfy, add edge, a little height and balance the proportions of leggings or skinny jeans if you are intent on holding onto them. You can also style these with midi skirts and dresses, shorts or mini skirts.

In: the Cowboy Boot

Out: The Flat Riding Boot

The newest boot on the block is the cowboy boot, a welcome change for folk, boho and festival lovers. This style aligns with the 70's trends coming through and works best with short skirts, dresses and shorts.

In: Square Toe Boot

Out: Round Block Heel Boot

The square toe boot adds street red and "It Girl" status to a simple, minimalist outfit and similar to the Cowboy Boot, it comes off the back of the 70's trend, so brown is the best choice to work with that and white is a great option too. Hardware details get bonus points.

In: Platform Heels

Out: Kitten Heels

With all footwear going solid, heels are no exception. The platform heel takes over the kitten heel and fine, strappier versions, again brining a retro 60's, 70's vibe. Gold is the ultimate in Studio 54 glam if you want to take this trend to its limits.

In: Mules

Out: Strappy Ankle Heels

Mules are not going anywhere, they have firmly cemented themselves as the perfect alternative for ankle strap heels, proving effortless poise to any outfit. Keep it simple, opt for buttery soft leather to ensure comfort and a plush 3d effect.

Of course, if you love a style that has gone "out" you do not need to part with it, keep wearing it if it makes you happy because that is always the most important part of style, or you can store away because you can bet your bottom dollar it will resurface again down the track, as all trends do.

These styles are all available at Canberra Outlet with some big savings available!
