Band-Aids for the win.

With New York Fashion Week ending, we can’t deny that our feet have taken a serious beating over the last few days. Running around from show to show and meeting to meeting in our most street-style-worthy shoes means that, although our outfits were consistently on point, we’ve also collected our fair share of blisters, scrapes, and everything in between. That’s the price for picking up the season’s hottest new heels or boots (worth it). So forget belt bags and tiny sunglasses; we’re naming the humble Band-Aid as this season’s biggest accessory. We know what you’re thinking—a foot covered in traditional Band-Aids is not exactly chic. But we say embrace the look with a few wildly printed and colorful Band-Aids, which just so happen to pair perfectly with fall’s coolest trends—think sparkles, neons, stripes, and animal prints. If you’re still not sold on the idea, check out our favorite shoe and Band-Aid combinations below. Your feet will thank you.

 

Let’s face it—traditional Band-Aids are not cute. But a sparkly and safari-inspired Band-Aid? Sign us up. You can even find them in fun star shapes to take your footwear game to a whole new level. Who said Band-Aids have to be boring?

 

When you’re breaking in a fresh pair of sneakers or a hot new boot, ankle blisters become inevitable. We say embrace it and enhance the shoes themselves with a striped or rainbow Band-Aid. Consider your Band-Aids as the new accessory you never knew you needed!
