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!

This week’s outfit of the week goes to a look created on the Around Lucia blog. Lucia makes the look stand out with a fabulous bright pink sweater. The long pink sweater hangs effortlessly over a casual white miniskirt. She takes the look to the next level with a great pair of brown knee-high boots. Last but not least, Lucia throws on a pair of oversized sunglasses for that extra bit of chicness. We love this look because it combines a fun, bright pink sweater with other elegant and naturally sexy pieces. Check out the outfit below to see how you can get a similar look!
