Stock your closet with these 6 must-have shoe styles, and you'll always have the right pair for every outfit!
Are you a shoe-lover who has run out of room in your closet, or your budget? We help you stretch your fashion dollar with this list of the 6 pairs of shoes you need to own, so you'll always have the right shoe for all your outfits.
The right pair of shoes can make an outfit, or break it. Just for you, fashion-lovers, I've put together this list of the 6 pairs of shoes every woman should own. Invest in these 6 must-have shoe styles, and you'll never have to panic again about not having the right pair of shoes to go with all your outfits.
1. Metallic Ballet Flats
Ballet flats might be the most important shoe every woman should own. A pair of ballet flats in a neutral shade will go with almost anything in your closet, from office-appropriate wrap dresses or trousers, to off-duty jeans and shorts. Slip on a pair with a maxi dress for a cool summer look, or wear a pair with a dressy frock to show people you don't take dressing up too seriously. Ballet flats can look especially cute with capri pants, rolled-up boyfriend jeans and short skirts, as the flat heel balances well with the skin you're showing on your legs. I strongly recommend a metallic pair in bronze or silver for your go-to pair, that will work for most outfits in your closet and take you from day into night.
2. Classic Black Pumps
Every woman should own a pair of classic black pumps in matte black leather. This style is basically the little black dress of shoes, adding polish and grown-up flair to your work and going-out outfits. Choose a pair with a rounded toe and platform heels to match with work wardrobe staples, such as your pencil skirts, trousers and sheath dresses. Or if you need a go-to dress up shoe, you might want to select a pointy-toed black pump with high heels - great for elongating the legs, especially when worn with black tights - for all those fancy occasions.
3. Nude High Heeled Shoes
Nude heels are definitely a must-have shoe style that every woman should have in her closet. These classic shoes will look good with just about anything you could possibly wear, especially if you buy a pair with rounded toes or peep-toes. Because nude heels look best - and do the most to elongate your legs - when they're at least a few inches high, you'd be smart to choose a platform style for comfort. Pick a pair with some shine to the finish, and you'll be able to wear your nude high heeled shoes with both daytime and evening looks.
4. Brown or Nude Gladiator Sandals
The gladiator sandal trend is back again this summer. In fact, it's been around for so many seasons now, it's starting to feel timeless. In brown or nude, the flat gladiator sandal is incredibly versatile and has earned its place in this ranking of shoes every woman should own. Wear a pair with a maxi dress or long skirt and you'll instantly add a dose of trendy edge, making any feminine look more modern. Pull on a pair with your t-shirt and jean shorts this summer to look put-together. If you're packing for a vacation where you'll be walking a lot, such as a city weekend getaway, this is the one pair of summer shoes you need to pack in your bag, to make all your outfits look great - and keep your feet comfortable while you sightsee.
5. Killer Heels
Every woman needs a pair of killer high heels in her shoe wardrobe that make her feel like a bombshell. Whether your killer heels boast a wild animal print pattern, bold color blocking or a bright solid color, they should showcase your personality. These are the shoes to wear when you're feeling sexy, confident and want to let the world know it. Wear your killer heels when you're going out with your favorite guy, or your best girlfriends. Depending on your personal fashion style, your killer heels may be teetering stilettos, stacked heels or wedge-style sandals. The only rule is that they have to be at least a little bit outrageous, and show the world who you are.
6. Ankle Boots
Ankle boots are a must-have shoe style, fashion lovers. These short, stylish boots will add edge to your feminine styles and look fabulous with your jeans too. Buy a pair in black suede and you'll wonder how you ever lived without them. Wedge styles are most versatile, but you can opt for flats or heels too. Pair your ankle boots with black tights, a floral dress and some chunky jewelry for a trendy take on the nineties grunge look. Wear them with a knee-length pencil skirt, for a killer office look. Or pull them on for casual days, to add instant style cred to a classic white tee and jeans. The possibilities are almost endless!
