I'm Not an Accessories Person, But I Wear These 5 Pairs of Shoes on Repeat

Last month, I revealed the bag styles I can't live without (clue: they're practical and pretty), so with winter finally here, I thought it was time to tell you about the shoes that carry me through the cold months. If you've read my previous articles, you'll know that my approach to accessories is strictly minimalistic (well, for a fashion editor anyway). Well, the same principle applies to my shoe collection.

Like my bags, I need shoes to tick both the functional and fashionable boxes. They have to be comfortable enough to wear all day, go with most things I own, be durable but also look the part (aka not appear too orthopaedic). This means that boots and chic flats end up making up a large part in my winter wardrobe.

I'd say four out of five of my choices are timeless pieces that can be worn season after season, but I couldn't resist throwing in my favourite snakeskin boots. Yes, they might be on the more trend-led end of the spectrum, but sometimes you need those personality pieces to add interest to a simple outfit. Oh, and they bring a smile to my face, and that's what fashion's for, right? Scroll down to see and shop my capsule shoe wardrobe.
