The One Thing You Should Never Do When Wearing Open Toe Shoes In Winter

Wearing open-toe shoes in the winter can be controversial. Some people argue that it’s a fashion rule that’s meant to broken. On the other hand, it’s just not practical. No one should be wearing open toe shoes when there’s snow on the ground. But what happens when you out together the perfect outfit and the only shoes that look good are open toe? Or you got a brand new bar of open toe booties and you just can’t wait for the warm weather to wear them?

According to Vogue, the verdict on open-toe shoes in the winter is often situational. If you’re a serious fashionista heading to Fashion Week or can afford door-to-door car service, then go ahead, rock open toe shoes in the cold. Vogue.com Market Editor Chelsea Zalopany suggests pairing the shoe with a cute sock, like a ribbed cashmere sock or a semi-see-through nylon in a pretty hue.

Style expert Stacy London adds, “You can wear tights with open-toed shoes, as long as there’s no reinforced toe or even toe seam.” The key to this look is making the pairing look deliberate. You want to make it look like you are doing it intentionally, otherwise it looks like you forgot you were wearing open-toe shoes.

However, Alessandra Codinha, Fashion News Editor at Vogue.com, warns that you should “never, never wear an open-toe shoe with nude tights of any sort.” Codinha claims, “You just look like you don’t own any other shoes.”

If you really want to wear open toe shoes in the winter, Man Repeller Leandra Medine says, “Go for it. Go get ’em, tiger! Run to your shoes, prepare your toes for the impending cold and tell them to suck it up, spray a little waterproofing solution on them…and take those babies out for a spin.” After all, they are your feet, so if you don’t mind a little cold, go ahead and rock those open toe shoes.
