Fall must-have: pumps

Every woman needs a good pair of pumps and this winter the trend is for black. It is safe to assume you already own a pair of black heels, but purchasing a closed-toe pair for the fall and winter should be on your to-do list. The best part of this season’s fashion is that neutrals are all the rage, and if we know one thing about neutrals it is that they rarely go out of style. That being said, investing in a nice pair of black, nude or even gray closed toe heels is worth every penny. Nevertheless, if you are on a budget, you can still buy a pair of each and not break the bank. Below are four styles to consider while you are shopping for shoes this winter.

Patent leather

Patent leather heels are sexy, sophisticated and timeless. Even though many prefer to save these for the fall and winter months, patent leather can be worn all year, making it extremely versatile. A classic pair of patent leather pumps can easily be worn for years, depending on how well you care for them, so investing in a nice comfortable pair is advisable. Even so, there are many designers that make patent leather high heels on a budget for those of you looking for a steal. Companies like Aldo and Steve Madden usually carry the latest fashions on a budget.


Suede heels are luxurious and another staple of any fall and winter wardrobe. Unlike patent leather, suede is much more of a seasonal fabric, although wearing it in the spring and summer is not completely out of the question. If you are looking to purchase only a single pair of pumps for the fall or winter, a suede pair is a must-have to consider.


Pointy-toe pumps are the epitome of classic, sophisticated fashion. This style is iconic in the fashion sense and it will never go out of style. Purchasing a luxury brand pair is absolutely worthwhile, but again, many budget-friendly companies produce them. Pointy-toe pumps can be purchased in matte leather for year-round wear, or in suede for a luxurious look and feel in the winter.


Even if you already own a pair of patent leather or suede pumps for the winter, you can always shop around to buy something trendier. The latest trends include studded and metallic heels. Another great alternative is a pair of bright heels like blue or red, for a pop of color.
