Shoes make or break an outfit. Celebrities might get away with wearing an old pair of Vans with a couture gown on the red carpet, but the rest of us would be torn apart for such a disastrous fashion fail. You can always be creative with your footwear choices and rules are meant to be broken, but there are some instances where you can’t afford to wear the wrong shoes.
All women need a selection of different shoes in their closet. The more shoes you have, the more fashion choices you can make. After all, it’s good to have a pair of shoes in every color and style; that way you don’t have to wear the same pair twice. Unfortunately, we don’t all have A-list incomes or a closet large enough to store hundreds of pairs of shoes, so it is important to be selective about what shoes you buy. Therefore, if you are shopping on a budget, here is a selection of the shoes every women needs in their closet – if you have these, you will be ready for any occasion!
Flat shoes are the staple of most women’s closets. Flat shoes will take you anywhere and everywhere, from a casual date to a work luncheon, and most places in between. You can wear comfortable flat shoes with a skinny pair of jeans for a weekend shopping trip with the girls, or dress them up a little with a cute summer dress.
Because they are flat, this type of shoe is easy to wear and your feet won’t feel like they are dropping off after a couple of hours. Many women choose to wear flat shoes for the office, because they are dressy enough if you pick the right style, but no too ostentatiously sexy if you prefer to get ahead based on your ability rather than your looks.
Once upon a time, sneakers were worn to the gym, but rarely anywhere else. Things have now changed a great deal and most people have multiple pairs of sneakers: gym sneakers, casual sneakers, and fashion sneakers to name but three. Really, unless you have a gym junkie, one pair will do just fine, so make sure your one and only pair counts.
Designer sneakers are all the rage. There are lots of designer brands to choose from, but if you prefer ultra-casual sneakers, go for Vans or Converse. However, if you want a more robust form of footwear, look for something akin to a training shoe instead.
Sexy Pair of High Heels
If you want to impress the man in your life (or the man you want in your life), a sexy pair of stiletto shoes might just do the trick. There is a reason why women look good in towering stilettoes. By virtue of the way stiletto shoes change out posture, they make our legs look more shapely, our butts look pert, and our breasts more prominent. It’s not difficult to see why men like women who wear them.
Unfortunately, super high stiletto shoes can be torturous to wear if you are not used to them, so don’t buy a pair that are too high. Instead, look for a pair of stilettoes with a mid-height heel and invest in some soft-gel inserts to protect your feet. These will save you a lot of pain at the end of an evening out.
Cute Pair of Kitten Heels
Kitten heels are easier to wear than towering stiletto shoes, but are still sexy enough to work on a date or fancy work function. Black works well with virtually every outfit, but white shoes also look pretty when worn with summer outfits.
Winter boots are always a good investment. Knee-high leather boots can be worn with skinny jeans, a mini skirt, or a dress. They are very versatile and if you buy the right pair of boots, you can get away with wearing them to the office or on a date. Flat boots are better for bad weather conditions, but if you want to dress to impress, go for a sexy pair of boots with heels.
Lastly, don’t forget to invest in a pair of summer sandals. Styles vary from season to season, but gladiator sandals rarely go out of fashion and always look good with most outfits.
You can buy footwear online if you look at internet retailers, but remember to check the sizing guide before you make any purchases, because these vary between di
