10 Must-Have Shoes for Women

We’ve already shown you the clothing essentials your closet needs. But, the very literal foundation to every woman’s wardrobe is her shoes. From statement sandals to wear with your sundresses to your do-everything black flat, here are the 10 shoe essentials you need to round out your wardrobe.

1. Easy Sandals

These easy-to-wear sandals are the perfect accompaniment to a sunny day (no shine needed—a matte neutral works too!)

2. Strappy Wedges

Wedges are a warm-weather must—plus they’re excellent for adding height when your hemlines are long (think: maxi skirts & dresses).

3. Animal-Print Sandals

Live a little. When you’re feeling wild, reach for shoes—like this leopard-print sandal—that give you an extra edge. They’re equally perfect for a power lunch or a night out.

4. Fashion Sneakers

A true gift from the footwear gods. They boast the comfort of an athletic shoe, but instantly add street style to casual Friday or weekend wear. Sold.

5. The Perfect Black Flat

Truly universal. Think of them like the LBD (little black dress), but for your feet. A black flat can easily be dressed up or down for nearly any occasion.

6. Strappy Stilettos

Everyone needs their go-to event shoe. Stilettos are usually a splurge, but they stand out on date night, girls’ night or even a formal wedding.

7. Comfortable Clogs

Straight from the Swedes, these sensible slip-ons are the ultimate walking shoe (sturdy & supportive!). But they also pair beautifully with flares & wide-leg trousers for that ‘70s vibe.

8. Everyday Loafers

Laid-back loafers give any outfit a classic, menswear-inspired boost. Want to impress during a job interview? Your trusty loafers will keep you looking smart. Try a pop-color pair for extra flair.

9. Year-Round Booties

Your broken-in booties can & should we worn all year. Great with boyfriend jeans & cut-offs alike, they’re the most versatile shoe you own.

10. Metallic Flats

Wear these when your classic black flats need a break. The best part? Metallics can stand in as a neutral: gold, silver & even rose gold play nice with other colors.
