The 3 Shoes to Ditch From Your Closet for Good

When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

The beginning of spring also means spring-cleaning… Before you sweat, read my list of items to ditch this year. Today, I’m adding to the list by sharing the shoe styles to part with this season. In an effort to make your spring-cleaning process a tad easier, I’ve narrowed it down to three key styles. While you’re cleaning out your shoe collection, keep an eye out for wedge sneakers, extreme kitten heels, and round-toe heels. Make a donation corner, and be sure to add any of the three styles to that pile. But don’t worry—if you’re still feeling these styles, by all means, continue to wear them. After you’ve cleaned out your closet (if you do decide to ditch), though, reward yourself by adding spring’s coolest shoe trend to your rotation—sleek slides.
