11 Shoes Every Woman Needs in Her Closet

 photo DSCN9063_zps4lkqx5t0.jpg

If there's one staple item that every woman should own, it's a good pair of shoes. Let's be honest, there really is nothing more fun than shoe shopping! There's so many different kinds of shoes to pick from for each season and even for different occasions. I'm a firm believer that adding investment pieces to your wardrobe is one of the best things you can do; the higher end bags, shoes, jewelry, etc. always last a life time and are true assets to your closet!

Some shoes are just classics and not only does having a classic shoe in your closet make it easier to get ready for the day or night but it gives you so many options and you know that you'll always have something no matter what you have planned. Here are the shoes that I firmly believe every woman should own:

Ankle Strap Heels: These are such a staple item for every closet and they've become increasingly popular, so much so that you can find them almost anywhere and really at a ton of different price points too. These Steve Madden heels have an ankle strap, a neutral color and a block heel - the best of both worlds! The ankle strap heels marked #1 are Steve Madden too and the color is perfect for any outfit. They can be dressed up, down and they look great on everyone.


Simple Black Sandals:: I wear my black Tory Burch Miller sandals almost every. single. day. I love them so much - they're so comfortable and they look great with every outfit! These sandals are the best and they're really great for the price. I highly recommend them in EVERY color! I've had my black pair for almost four years now and they're still in great condition even after wearing them for days on end. If I had to pack for a trip and only bring one pair of shoes (as if that could ever happen..!) it would hands down be my black Tory Miller's!


White Dressy Shoes: Having neutral colored shoes in your closet is important but having white is more than neutral - white goes with any outfit imaginable and these white wedges are the perfect white shoes. They're a really good price too! I got them at Nordstrom and they're so comfy and I love the way they look with jeans and with cute sun dresses for summer too.


Ballet Flats: As if ballet flats weren't already a staple closet item, having packable flats that are adorable, comfy and easy to carry around are such a must have! I love Tory Burch flats and all of the colors they come in and they're perfect to carry around either in your bag for a long day or to travel with too. It still seems un natural to me to be folding an expensive pair of flats but it works! ; )


Year Round Booties: Boots are of course meant for the cold, but a fun pair of booties like these can even be worn in the spring! They also can be dressed up or down and they're never going to go out of style in such a neutral color and shape.


Floral/Patterned Pumps: Florals, animal print and textured prints are a must have on at least one pair of shoes in your closet. They're a great way to add something extra to a simple outfit or a pop of color and mixing patterns too - like florals and stripes, my current favorite!


Black Heels: This is pretty self explanatory but finding a comfortable pair of black heels is a MUST have! They're simple but perfect for all outfits and since they're likely the pair you'll wear the most, finding a pair you love that are comfortable on your feet is important. I absolutely fell in love with these Sam Edelman pumps - they're extremely comfortable and they've quickly become my favorite pair of black pumps. Patent leather pumps like these are great to have too. I always spend the most on neutral colored shoes because I know they're ones I'll wear a lot so having them last a long time is so important! Here is a less expensive option that are great quality too!


Nude Pumps: By far my favorite pair of shoes and one of the biggest but best investments to make! Louboutin's are no doubt expensive, but they're the best quality shoe I've ever seen. I love patent leather and mixing a nude color and patent leather is a dream come true! ; ) love these shoes.


Cute Loafers: M. Gemi is my favorite brand for cute slippers/loafers (next to UGG's of course)!
This hot pink pair is perfect for spring and fall and that's what I love most - UGG's remind me more of late fall and winter, but a cute pair of shoes that is good for more than one season is a must have!


Flat Sandals: While I love my Tory Miller's, colorful sandals are just as important for summer! Tory Burch has this new collection of toe sandals and they have beautiful colors and again, can be dressed up or down. I love these sandals and since they have the toe space, they're different from anything I have in my closet currently and they've made a great addition so far!


Cute Sneakers: The best thing about sneakers is that nearly every pair on sale today are fashionable and honestly, pretty damn cute! Nike is my go to for sneakers and I love these that come in a ton of colors; the mint is my favorite, but black are perfect if you're going to just have one pair. But with sneakers this cute I don't think you'll limit yourself to one! ; ) I also love these New Balance sneakers they're perfect for working out!


Shoe shopping is the best shopping, so if you're in need of some new shoes - look to stock your closet with versatile, timeless pairs. If you're big on shoes, it's so important to have a ton of staple pairs for every look and every occasion.

What's your go to pair of shoes?

XOXO

  8. I could live happily in #4 #8 and #9. And those wedges. I'm a sucker for wedges, I have too many pairs now, but I can always make room for one more pair.

  11. So many amazing shoes to choose from. Although I'm not big on logos on my clothes or shoes, I don't mind it on anything from Tory Burch. The logo actually adds to the shoe. I'm the kind of shoe addict that buys shoes and then finds outfits to go with them. I plan everything around my shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yup. I have all these in some variation and then some! :)

  13. Can never go wrong with a great black ballet flat! I wear them with everything haha.

  14. These are all very beautiful. We always need to own at least on pair of each so that we have something for any occasion! My favorite would always be boots though!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a boot girl. I have four pairs of cowboy boots, along with 2 pair of combat boots, 2 pair of riding boots, and numerous pair of ankle books. Cowboy boots are my go-to! They go with casual and dressy outfits and have built-in attitude. No one messes with a woman wearing cowboy boots!

  21. I am a runner and just counted the other day, I have 11 pairs of running shoes. I don't think anyone needs that many. I need to start expanding to some of these other shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ankle strap heels and peep-toe booties are high up there on my shopping list. These are all essential picks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is so true! I love shoes. I have more then I need, but I can't help it. They go with so many outfits too, it's hard not to have many.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Amen, girlfriend! I agree with all of the above!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't have the loafers or any of the sandals for the sole (haha) reason it is too cold at my job to have my feet exposed. Love wearing my heels though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd probably pick those Steve Madden pairs. Those Nike shoes are cool too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm not one to waste money on shoes or clothes. I have the basics and i am good.

  44. Shoes are one of the hottest fashion accessories and every woman seems to be amassing a collection. However, the shoes that looked like works of art at the shoe store don't always work well in your wardrobe. If you want to more information about Women Best Flip Flops visit our site.

  45. Every woman has some weaknesses but there is one thing that is a weakness of every woman. No matter what culture she is a part of, what part of the world she belongs to, what age group she is in, one thing in constant and that is women's love for red dress shoes. I find this website for Best Flat Feet Boots for work.
