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.
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.
