5 Shoes Every Woman should Own

Choosing a pair of shoes to wear can be a daunting task when you have a closet full of them. On the other hand, not having enough pairs of shoes can leave you craving all the hot new styles. Whether you have too many or too few, there are five general types of shoes that every woman should own in order to be footwear-ready for any event or occasion thrown your way!

Black Ankle Bootie

First off we have the classic black bootie that will match with anything due to its neutral color. Opt for one with a medium heel; it will have you looking stylish while still keeping you comfortable. Sure, you probably wouldn’t want to run a marathon in them, but you could definitely walk a fair distance without being in agonizing pain. They’re incredibly multifunctional; they can take you from work during the day to a social event at night with no need for a shoe change in the middle.

High Boot

Now that you have your ankle bootie covered, it’s time to invest in one that’s either to your knee or above it. Every woman needs a pair of show-stopping boots that will look great with a dress or a pair of skinny jeans. Wear them to a party or on a date, and you’ll be admired for your sense of style!

Ballet Flat

Owning at least one pair of ballet flats will have you jumping for joy on those long days that you spend standing on your feet. Choose a pair with a special detailing like metal hardware or a snakeskin material.

Pump

When you’re ready to pump up your style at the office, it’s time to invest in a pair of pumps that are feminine, professional, and chic! Pumps will help take a pencil skirt to the next level or make a pair of jeans more formal.

Evening Sandal

The fifth and final must-have shoe is the strappy evening sandal that will take you to any formal event. When shopping for an evening shoe, look for two important characteristics: a satin fabric or sparkly crystal detailing. Either one will indicate that you’ve got your party shoes on and are ready to kick up your heels!

The Best Versatile Shoes: Wedding Season and Beyond

It’s that time of year again when the wedding invitations start coming in and you’re left wondering what you’re going to wear.

Well have no fear because we’ve got your shoes covered.  Refinery 29 gives us a list of shoes that won’t be just one hit wonders.  You can buy them to wear to your weddings without worrying that you’re splurging on something that you’ll only wear once.

Slide into some mule shoes like the ones featured below and you’ll not only feel comfortable and secure enough to dance the night away, but you’ll also be able to wear them during the day with your casual outfits.

These Nasty Gal mules let you show off your pretty toenail polish while adding a splash of pastel color to your look and making it feel super summer inspired!

The next one I like from the Refinery 29 list is a pair of Tory Burch sandals as seen below. These safari-styled chunky sandals will add life to any dress you wear to the wedding, while being perfectly stylish for your casual summer vacation ensembles.  Most importantly, the chunky heel and thick foot strap will give you the comfort and security you need to dance the night away in these uniquely geometric sandals.

Now it’s time to lace up your shoes and get ready to party in the camel-colored leather sandals.  These shoes will give your look a sense of casual and practical comfort while still adding some intrigue to your look.  The double-layered sole will help your feet go all night on the dance floor.

I did a little browsing of my own to find a pair of sandals that are feminine, fun, casual, and won’t break your budget.  The pink sandals from Aldo featured below will look stunning paired with a pastel summery dress or any neutral-colored cocktail dress.  These simple and subtle shoes will add a much-needed splash of feminine color to any outfit.  Whether you’re wearing a dress, a skirt, or a pair of jeans, these sandals will add a lovely touch.
