Shoes Every Fashion Conscious Woman Should Own

Shoes are the ultimate investment and often the final piece of an outfit that brings your entire look to life. When done right, you can select a small number of reliable options that can be worn for years to come. 

From versatile and chic loafers, iconic Chelsea boots or Dr Martens, and reliable, neutral heels, having a well-rounded range of footwear staples in your wardrobe will ensure you are never short of choice when building outfits for the events in your life.

Classic Loafers

You will struggle to find a more versatile shoe than the classic loafer. This sophisticated footwear is the perfect combination of fashion and function and can be effortlessly dressed down for a casual Sunday brunch or dressed up for a formal evening event. 

For many, they are a chic alternative to a flat ballet pump, giving your finished outfit a more sophisticated feel. If you are new to the loafer game, stick to an elegant pair of loafers made of black leather or faux leather. They are easy to maintain and keep clean, and you will be able to wear them with everything in your wardrobe. 

Strappy Sandals

A high-quality pair of strappy sandals is easily one of the most versatile footwear options for warm-weather wearing. They can be worn with a simple pair of jeans shorts and a graphic tee or a flowy dress for a summer wedding. 

They are extremely wearable and versatile and add an extra layer of feminine style to your look that you would lose with loafers or a simple ballet flat. Strappy sandals typically come either completely flat or with a small heel. The option you choose is ultimately up to you and what you prefer.

White Sneakers

The iconic white sneaker has the incredible ability to make nearly any outfit look stylish, polished and effortlessly cool. They can be paired with almost everything in your closet, making them an easy and reliable go-to option for any day. 

While they can be worn all year round, their lighter colour will be more at risk during wet and muddy seasons, so be prepared to develop an effective cleaning regime fairly early on. If you find plain white to be a little uninspiring, choose a platform variety for something a little different. 

Knee-High Boots

Super high, over-the-knee boots go in and out of style as the seasons change, so committing to the style can be tricky. But if you want a solid boot option that works each and every time, look no further than knee-high boots. They can be worn with leather leggings, mini dresses, tailored pants, or bootleg jeans, to name a few.

The height adds a sexy edge to your look that ankle boots simply can't do. Opt for a leather or suede pair, as these timeless styles will ensure they can be worn year after year.

Court Shoes

When you need to be on top form for more formal occasions but would prefer to skip a towering heel, you can’t go wrong with selecting a court shoe. If you are a fan of the higher stiletto heel but find yourself in pain before the end of the day, this may be the solution for you. 

The lower kitten heel is a somewhat divisive fashion choice for many. Still, the ever-popular design has remained a fashion staple for many years, proving it can hold itself in the fashion world. Pair it with flowing dresses, minis, tailored pants or your favourite jeans for endless styling opportunities. 

Chelsea Boots

The Chelsea boot has long been revered for its ability to perfectly balance style and functionality, appealing to both men and women. While the iconic design remains largely the same, many brands are introducing slight variations to the market to expand their offerings further. 

While the traditional silhouette in black leather will always be the epitome of functional style, consumers can now select variations with chunkier soles, bright and bold colour combinations and edgy detailing and finishing. 

Neutral Heels

Whether we like it or not, some social events in life call for a sophisticated heel. And there is nothing worse than preparing your outfit for an important interview or wedding, only to discover you don’t have appropriate heels to match. 

Having a pair of comfortable heels that are neutral in colour is an absolute game changer in your closet, as they can be pulled out for any and every heel-worthy event. Choose a good quality pair that you really love and can confidently and comfortably walk in. It will make a massive difference to your experience.

Fashion Sneakers

Over the past decade, fashion sneakers have taken the footwear industry by storm, with many big-name fashion houses and iconic sportswear brands jumping on the bandwagon. While they will never quite fit in around the gym, they are an incredibly stylish alternative to classic loafers or ankle boots. 

While they are stylish and comfortable, fashion sneakers are the epitome of casual wear, so be mindful of this laidback appearance when choosing to build outfits. Your boss at work won’t appreciate them in the corporate office.
