In my last post, I wrote about my love of shoes, and how after my first purchase of suede nude wedges I was hooked. Well I thought I would continue with the theme of footwear this week with a post about my top 12 styles that every woman should own. As I have said before, the right pair of shoes make you feel empowered, confident, beautiful and elegant. They can transform your everyday outfit from blah to BAM and will never make you feel fat or bloated like so many other items in your wardrobe have the ability to do.
I personally believe that a woman can never have too many shoes; however for those of you who aren’t as shoe crazed as me, here are just a few of the styles that I believe no woman should be without.
Over the Knee Flat Boots
By keeping your over the knee styles flat you look more cool than trashy. Pair these with tights and a funky shift or keep your legs bare and wear with an oversized knit for an off duty laid back look.
All Weather Boots
If you have ever been caught in a surprise rainstorm wearing suede or satin shoes you will know the importance of having all weather boots. These babies will be your go to kicks in winter and will save you a hell of a lot of heartache when that next thunderstorm appears. Steer clear of any styles that are made from high maintenance fabrics like suede or satin and ensure that they have sturdy soles.
I like suede styles as they look great with everything and I am not too fussed on shiny materials but whatever your taste some classic ankle boots are a must have for every wardrobe.
I never used to think of these as a wardrobe staple but over the past year I have come to include casual sneakers on my must have list. Whether you prefer some casual kicks like classic Chuck Taylors or something with a sportier edge like these, having some comfy casual shoes in your wardrobe is certainly a must.
Who could resist the classic ballet pump, especially ones from Chanel. This modest style is simple and sophisticated with a chic edge. Even your most dishevelled boyfriend jeans will look polished when paired with ballet flats.
This season’s sandal takes it shape in the form of the iconic Birkenstock. This famed style has done a full 360 and is now back at the top of the must have list for fashionistas across the globe. The comfy construction mixed with its cool no fuss look makes it the perfect shoe for the weekend spent shopping, brunching and hanging with friends.
Every girl needs some elegant heels with a petite ankle strap. Pair these with your little black dress for a night out on the town or with some cuffed boyfriend jeans and a white tee for dinner with the girls.
A pair of sturdy stacked heels are perfect for a big night out and can look super stylish paired with leather shorts and a boxy Tee. Every girl needs comfortable heels!
A classic pointed pump will never be a waste in any girls shoe collection. Either stick to a classic plain colour or opt for a funky pattern like animal print. Either way this style is certainly a must have and will suit pretty much any occasion.
Sleek, sexy and strappy, these beauties are perfect for date night and special occasions. They can make you feel super confident, sophisticated and chic.
A pair of good wedges will take your from breakfast to the bar and beyond. Whether you plan to be on your feet wiggling your booty all night or spending all day shopping every girl should own at least one pair of wedges.
Everyone needs a pair of shoes that gives every girl they meet shoe envy. They may not always be practical but you can be damn sure that you will love having them in your wardrobe!
So how many staples do you have in your shoedrobe?
