8 Pairs Of Shoes Every Woman Should Own

Back-to-basics styles that will make getting dressed infinitely easier

Having a variety of different shoes for different occasions is vital. No one wants to be stuck with just dad sneakers for a black tie event (though it is very fash-un to wear them with dresses).

To help you get your shoedrobe sorted, we’ve rounded up the eight styles every woman needs in her closet. You’re welcome. 

1. Ankle-strap sandals

Talk about foolproof: with a barely-there strap and in a neutral shade, they’ll work with virtually everything you own.  

2. Loafers

The ultimate run-around shoe, these boyish flats will add polish to jeans, cigarette pants, dresses… the list goes on.

3. Black pumps

A streamlined pair will take you from work to weekend and everything in between. 

4. Ankle boots 

When you want to add a little edge to your look, ankle boots are your go-to. Opt for a flat, go-anywhere style as Alexa Chung did or step it up with a block heel.

5. Ballet flats

For sophistication without sacrificing comfort, seek out a nude shade or soft metallic à la Olivia Palermo.

6. Flat sandals

Your summer saviours, a tan pair like Leandra Medine’s is perfect for denim cut-offs and flirty sundresses alike. Just add pretty pedicure. 

7. White sneakers

Whether you choose of-the-moment Stan Smiths as Kendall Jenner did or a simple canvas pair, these classics will give any outfit a sporty spin.

8. Statement heels

Sometimes a girl just needs a knockout pair of stilettos to lift her mood, and outfit. Take Kendall Jenner’s lead and pair with a LBD to let them take centre stage.
