Although it has been said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, many would disagree. If any accessory item was a girl’s best friend, it would most likely be shoes. Shoes are simply amazing. It is hard to describe exactly what it feels like when you find that perfect pair of shoes and fall in love. It’s also hard to explain to non-shoe lovers why shoes are so wonderful because, honestly, they’ll never get it. As a shoe lover, though, it is very easy to completely blow your budget buying pair after pair. So, for those who can’t stop buying shoes, it helps to have a little perspective on things and narrow down the must-have list. With that in mind, here is a list of the shoes every woman should have in her closet.
Basic Black Pump
A basic black pump can be worn with dresses, skirts, dress pants, jeans, or whatever you want. When shopping for them, though, keep comfort in mind. You want a sensible heel height that you can easily walk and stand in. Make sure the fit is good and they don’t slip. Choose a material that is easy to care for, preferably something that wipes off and can be shined up to stay looking new. The actual style doesn’t matter as long as you like how they feel on your foot. A black pump can dress up any outfit and add a bit of style to even the most basic of looks.
Everyone needs a comfortable pair of sneakers that can go with anything. It’s probably best to stick to white, which can match with a cute skirt or jeans. One note on sneakers, though, you will often get a lot of wear out of them, so you should keep them clean. Tackle any mess as soon as it happens to prevent staining. Keeping them looking good can be a challenge, but it will allow you to get way more miles out of them.
While almost any boot is great, ankle boots are the best choice because you can wear them with many different looks. In addition, they are comfy and most have a little help to give you some height. You can find them in many different styles, too. From leather to suede, solid colors to prints, there is something everyone will love. They work great for dressy and casual occasions, and are a nice change from your pumps when your feet are needing a break.
When you are a bit tired of heels and you need a nice flat shoe, a loafer is the perfect choice. Loafers have been around forever and there is a good reason. They are incredibly comfortable if you buy the right pair. In addition, they have a nice look that can dress up an outfit. You can also choose from a range of styles, which lets you find some amazing looks. Finally, they slip on easily and are bit more dressy than sneakers, so they are a great show for those days you are in a rush and want to be comfy.
You can actually go for a couple different styles of sandals: one with a heel and one without a heel. Sandals are often the go-to choice for warmer months when you hate the idea of shoving your feet into a closed shoe. You should choose sandals that can stand up to a lot of wear and that are comfortable.
While there really isn’t a category of shoes called “party shoes,” you still need at least one pair. These are the shoes that may not be all that comfortable, but they look amazing. These should be a pair that you wouldn’t wear every day or maybe even more than once a year, but they can’t be passed up because you are completely obsessed with them. The style isn’t really important. Just make sure they are something you would wear to a party or special occasion. Remember that the look is the most important thing here. Make sure they are truly stunning.
Chances are if you love shoes, you already have a good collection. However, if your collection has become a little out of control, weed things down until you have the basics listed here. These are all you really need to get by. You can find something from this list that will work for any occasion or situation you may come across.
