5 Types of Shoes That Every Woman Should Own

For many of us, an afternoon camped out in a local shoe store is a blissful opportunity.  There are so many styles and colors to choose from that selecting just one pair can be difficult.  From feathers to glittery stones to rich, dark leather, we can imagine when we would wear these particular shoes and with which outfit they would look the most dramatic.  Shoes are a finishing element to any outfit.  They are also a way to experiment with modern trends without breaking the bank.  While we may want to own the majority of shoes that we find in better shoe stores, there are a few styles that every woman should have in her repertoire.


A classic boot with a heel that isn’t too tall will take through many situations.  Whether you are headed to work, traveling or out for an evening on the town, an elegant boot complements many outfits, particularly during the cooler months of the year.  For instance, the Anne Klein Seabed Bootie is a classic design that easily transitions from daytime into the evening.  You can select a more traditional boot or a bootie.  They will work with a variety of outfits and social situations throughout the year.

Ballet Flats

A cute ballet flat is a comfortable choice that looks chic with everything from jeans to sundresses.  When you are on the go, a good ballet flat will complete your outfit every time.  While you can choose a neutral color to go with a wider variety of outfits, sometimes you want to step out in style.  The Pirassa Ballet Flat is a great example of a flat that screams springtime style.

Canvas Sneakers

Yes, everyday canvas sneakers are an important part of a modern woman’s shoe wardrobe.  They are useful for running errands and taking care of your to do list.  Today, there is such a range of canvas sneakers that you will find a choice of styles, colors and patterns.  From glitter to brightly colored designs, you will find the sneaker that speaks to you.  Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Madison Sneaker is a very popular style.  Some other popular sneakers would be the perennial Ked’s variety like their Champion Sneaker.  From slip ons to traditional lace ups, a good sneaker will take you far.

Black Pumps

A good pair of black pumps are the little black dress of your wardrobe.  Not only will they pair with suits and dresses, they give a lift to jeans and capris.  A classic pump, such as Levin Pump, adds style to a variety of outfits.  Don’t consider them plain.  There are a wide variety of textures and embellishments, such as bows or ties, that give each pump a distinctive personality.

Leather Sandals

During your vacation stroll down the beach, a good leather sandal is a must have item that naturally comes to mind.  But a good leather sandal will also pair with many outfits as you take care of business in the city.  The Poppie Flat Sandal combines delicate swirls in to their design.  Whether you are into glitter or want a splash of color, a good sandal is a must in any woman’s wardrobe.

These are several styles that should be in every woman’s closet.  Be bold but also cover the basics!
