If You Hate Trends, You'll Love These Timeless Shoe Styles From Nordstrom

Yes, trends are very fun to look at and partake in, but you also have to know which ones work for you. After all, whatever you decide to buy should be something that you can wear repeatedly and will last in your closet for more than just a few fleeting months. I'm one of those people who always start with shoes when it comes to investing in timeless wardrobe items, focusing on styles I can throw on at a moment's notice but still look pulled-together. In my mind, a less trend-driven footwear game means I'll have so many ways to wear my shoes. 

When looking for shoes that largely avoid the current trend cycle, think of basic heels that look luxe, sneaker styles that have stood the test of time, buttery-soft leather boots, and flats that act as an effortless final touch to any outfit. Below, I rounded up all of those and more anti-trend shoes from Nordstrom so you can shop to your heart's content without sacrificing versatility. Step to it!

Lauren Adhav
Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice. After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
