More than Just the Glass Slippers

5 Shoes That Every Woman Should Have

Women love shoes. From sophisticated pumps to pretty ballet flats, all types of shoes are just welcome in our closet. However, it’s easy for a lady to get distracted with all the sky-high heels and feather-fairing shoes, and ignore the basics that could complement a daily outfit.


So, to make sure that the foundation of your shoe closet is set right, here are five basic shoe types that should be present in your shoe wardrobe.

  1. Coloured Ballet Flats

It’s undeniable that a pair of black ballets is every woman’s classic go-to shoe, but a coloured pair also makes for a confident and fun fashion statement. Add a pop of colour on your outfit by opting for a pair set in berry hues with a touch of silver or metallic gold colour.

  1. Black Heels

Whether or not it’s a sky-high heel, this pair is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. A perfect match for almost any outfit that you can imagine, a good pair of black heels is a worthy piece of investment. You can go for the classic black heels—closed back and toe with 3-inch heels—or opt for a pair with thicker heels with either round or pointed toe.

  1. Nude Pumps


Creating an illusion of longer legs is made possible with nude pumps. Perfect for a semi-casual or even a night-out outfit, these shoes are just trans-seasonal. Pair them up with black leggings for a sleek and casual vibe, or wear them with bare legs for taller and sexier stand.

  1. Cork Wedges

With its comfortable, casual but chic look, cork wedges are known as the warm weather wardrobe hero. Opt for a style with higher heels or those with metallic materials on the straps to complete a fun summer outfit.

  1. Black Ankle Boots

Complete an edgy look, toughen a floaty dress, or finish off a boardroom ensemble by donning a pair of black ankle boots. With this pair, sporting chic heels while keeping your feet warm is never impossible.

Sticking to the basics is important not just in clothing pieces, but for shoes as well. So make sure that your shoe wardrobe has the right foundation by getting a pair (or two!) of each of the aforementioned shoe styles.
