Every season brings with it what seems like an endless choice of new shoes. And with all the pretty images we’re constantly being shown of the “newest and best,” it can be hard to avoid getting sucked into what’s currently fashionable. The problem with trends is that you’ll have to replace what you bought with the newest trend in just a few months.
However, if you’re strategic about what shoes you purchase, you can create a capsule wardrobe that includes a timeless shoe collection that you can wear season after season. A variety of shoes is essential to any woman’s wardrobe. From the classic stiletto to the comfy sandal, having the right shoes can make a powerful fashion statement and ensure that you have footwear that you can rely on to always look good.
Before purchasing any new wardrobe investment pieces, read on to find out what I believe are the 11 must-have shoes every woman should have in her closet. By following the tips and advice in this blog post, you will be able to create the perfect shoe collection to suit any occasion or budget.
The 11 Must-Have Shoes For Every Woman
A classic white sneaker can be worn with almost any outfit and look effortlessly cool. They work year-round, but the lighter fabric of canvas sneakers looks particularly great in the summer. And a pair of comfortable slip on sneakers are great for everyday wear and will easily become your favorites. Once you find a pair you love, they’ll probably become your go-to shoe; you may not want to wear anything else.
Keeping a pair of all-white sneakers clean for long can be hard. Therefore, I don’t normally buy high-priced sneakers, as I prefer to replace them whenever needed.
The perfect pair of black booties are a year-round wardrobe staple. This classic pair of shoes can be worn with pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts. They come in every style, color, material, and heel height. However, if you only have one pair of ankle boots, I recommend finding a pair in a neutral color. Brown and black go with everything; you’ll get the most use out of them. If you do a lot of walking or are wearing them for long periods of time, choose a block heel over a stiletto. Because ankle boots come in such a large range of styles, you’ll be able to find the perfect pair (or a few) just for you.
A slide sandal is just as effortless as flip-flops but way more classy. They’re so easy to wear and perfect for a warm sunny day. In most places, they can be worn from spring through fall. So you’ll get plenty of time to wear them throughout the year.
These minimal strappy sandals are sexy, timeless, and perfect for adding height. They can take a simple outfit with denim jeans and a t-shirt from basic to effortlessly sexy. Because these strappy sandals leave your toes exposed, they are best suited for spring and summer.
Knee High Boots
Knee-high boots also make a statement any time of year. And yes, they can also be worn year-long, even in the summer, with shorts and dresses. With so many options, the most important thing is to pick a pair you truly love and will never get tired of. A good, well-made pair of boots will form around your feet and get more comfortable the longer you wear them. Whether you prefer a flat riding boot, a high stiletto, or a chunky block heel, pair them with skinny jeans and a blazer for an effortless, chic look.
Next up on my list of must-have shoes every woman should have are these menswear-inspired shoes that will instantly make you feel put together and ready for business. It’s a classic shoe that will forever be in style. But if you prefer a more sophisticated look, avoid the current chunky loafer trend. Chances are this trend won’t last for more than a few years, but clean loafers will always be in style
Even more casual than your classic white sneakers, this sportier pair of sneakers will be your favorite go-to shoes to stomp around in. Lace-up sneakers are the perfect shoe for running errands, shopping, traveling, and everything in between.
Every woman should own a good pair of nude heels. This neutral color goes with everything, just like black does. In addition, if you match a pointed-toe stiletto to your skin tone, they will majorly elongate your legs.
Another pair of chic, casual shoes to add to your collection are ballet flats. Whether you prefer a classic rounded toe, square toe, or pointed toe, look for a pair with more structure and a sturdy sole.
A pair of black pumps are the other classic high heels that every woman should have in their closet. In fact, a black leather pump can be worn with anything, and you never have to worry that it will go out of style. A pointy-toe style will also help elongate your leg.
Whether it’s with bright colors, sparkles, or a bit of both, these shoes are meant to be the main attraction. A little black dress or even a gray suit is anything but boring with this eye candy.
These are the 11 pairs of shoes every woman should have in her shoe collection. Although they can be an investment, high-quality shoes will last years if they’re properly taken care of. Click here to learn about the other wardrobe investment pieces every woman should own.
