The right pair of shoes can make all the difference when it comes to completing a look. Candace Bergen has said that no matter what oneâ€™s wardrobe costs, if paired with quality shoes, everything looks high quality. She makes a very sound point. As long as the clothes fit well and hair and make-up is done, the shoes can really take the entire look to the next level.
With all of that in mind, here are my ten essential shoes every woman should have in order to be stylishly pulled together no matter what the occasion. Feel free to share what your essentials are as well.
1. Ballet Flats (nude, black, bright colour or print)
This versatile footwear combines two major ‘Dos’: fashion and function. Not only they are comfortable and won’t cut your heel, they are effortless enough to be worn on casual outings and chic enough for the office.
2. Brown Hue Sandal
3. Classic Black Pump (pointed or round toe)
A black pump is perfect for work with a wrap dress, sheath, suit or trousers. Pointed toes tend to elongate your leg, but either will do depending upon your outfit. Nine West offers classic styles at very reasonable prices, but if youâ€™re able to invest in a pair of Christian Louboutins by all means you must add them to your wardrobe.
4. Nude Heels
A treasure to be had. Whether with jeans, a dress of any colour, or an outfit of any colour, this is the pump you want to make sure you have in your closet. Choose a round toe or peep-toe, that will instantly give you an illusion of sexy, longer legs.
6. Kitten Heels
The height these shoes provide is perfect for those days when you know and want to look feminine, yet have tired feet from wearing sky-high heels all week. These add a flirty height without defying gravity.
7. Evening HeelsÂ
