With the frankly overwhelming amount of footwear options available to every woman with an Internet connection, it’s no wonder that trying to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with your outfit can induce a headache. However, as shoes can make or break any outfit, it’s absolutely crucial that you choose the right pair for the occasion.
To help you navigate the treacherous seas of flats, heels, and sandals, here’s our pick of three essential styles of shoe that every woman should have in her wardrobe. Together, these wardrobe staples will have you covered for almost every occasion. Invest in these adaptable pieces and you’ll never feel that last-minute panic that comes with being stuck without a pair of shoes to match your outfit again.
Pick up a good-quality pair of sandals with a heel of at least a few inches and you’ll never be stuck for a formal shoe again. For total versatility, go for a classy all-black design, which will look just as at home in the office as they will on the dancefloor. A white pair can be a wise investment with wedding season approaching, while a pair in a nude hue can be worn with almost any outfit throughout the summer.
A great place to start your search is Sante + Wade who stock a wide range of heeled women’s sandals. This brand is taking the fashion and accessories world by storm by providing wider and longer, but beautiful shoes to the market. All with free UK delivery too and specifically for size 38 to 46 in standard and wide fittings.
If versatility is your main concern, then go for a pair with a thick or wedge heel so they’re comfortable enough to be worn for long periods of time. Alternately, if you’ll only be wearing them during formal occasions or on nights out, a pair with a stiletto heel will make a sophisticated addition to any outfit.
On weekends and evenings, it’s great to have a no-fuss pair of sliders that you can throw on with a pair of jeans and a top. However, there’s absolutely no need to sacrifice style for comfort, as there are a number of options when it comes to casual shoes. Take a look at these vibrant sliders, as trendy as they are comfortable.
To complete your collection of footwear essentials, get yourself a pair of versatile flats. Get this right and you’ll have a shoe that will seamlessly take you from the office to a night out, meaning you don’t have to worry about going home to change before you can hit the tiles.
Unless you’re comfortable enough in heels to wear them around the office, you’re going to need a shoe that combines the formality of your heeled sandals with the comfort of your trainers. Go for a stylish pair of black leather pumps, Oxfords, or brogues, and you’ll be able to pick your work outfit in the morning without worrying about whether or not your shoes are going to match.
For inspiration for outfits you can pair with your versatile flats around the office, take a look at this collection on Pinterest — if you choose your work shoes wisely, they’ll suit almost every work outfit you can think of.
Invest in these three wardrobe essentials and you’ll have no problem picking the perfect shoes for every occasion going forward, as all your bases will be covered.
