Same Shoes, Different Color - Fashion Go or No?

Would it be a Fashion Faux Pas to get the same pair of womens boots in black?

I found a pair of brown boots I'm absolutely in love with. I've been searching for months for a pair of black boots that I like (I have wider feet) and haven't found anything that fits or looks great.

So, do I wait till next season for new black boots? Or buy the same style that I already have in brown?



I've always believed in securing fashion pieces that complete your wardrobe, make you look and feel good, even if it means buying several pairs of the same style.

Why let it slip away from your hands if it's perfect and you love it?

I often purchase the same style in different colors - whether it be tees, dresses, tops, sweaters, jewelry or shoes. I recently bought two pair of platform gladiator sandals in both black and brown because they're really comfy to walk in and I'm completely in love with them!

Buying the same style in various colors solidifies your wardrobe and helps you save time

Getting the same style in several basic colors is a way to solidify your wardrobe, help you save time and keep you covered at all times.

This is especially true if you've spent a lot of time searching for the perfect pair of boots to fit your feet, needs and taste.

How to Buy the Same Style in Several Colors


Are they easy to mix and match?

This depends on the style. Are they simple, timeless-looking and easy to wear with several of your outfits? If yes, then I'd say go for it!

Do not hesitate, you'll get the most out of your money with the versatility of the boots.

Ask yourself if you'll be able to wear them next season

However if they feature lots of trendy complicated details (like ruffles, visible zipper embellishments and so on) then you need to re-consider your purchase because the black boots won't be worth your investment if you're worried about looking out-of-date next season or if you can't wear them in multiple ways.

Fortunately, boot trends usually don't change drastically from season to season, so you have nothing to worry about. And I absolutely think that the ones you chose have a timeless look!

But the design shouldn't really matter that much as long as you feel that the boots are true to your style. Just go out and be yourself! :-)

Grab them while you can!

Hope this helps Jill.
