Got some great new clothes?  Ready to go out and show it? Wait! We got news for you. An outfit isn’t an outfit without the right shoes. Having the wrong pair can turn an otherwise show-stopping, jaw dropping ensemble into something regular.  There are no rules to choosing the right shoe or not.. however, there are a few basic varieties of shoes that every woman should have in her closet for different reasons. For each one I would recommend sticking with the classic stiletto shape , closed toe, and standard 3.5″ heel. These will be classic anchor pieces for your shoe collection and will be appropriate no matter the current trends.

 

Black

 

Black shoes, specifically black heels, are a wardrobe necessity worth investing in. They go with everything, from your little black dress to your favorite dark-wash jeans, and instantly add sexiness and glamour to every outfit.

 

More expensive shoes are higher quality and therefore more comfortable and long lasting than cheap shoes. So even if you’re going to buy trendy shoes from a cheaper retailer, I suggest investing in at least one or two pairs of more expensive, classic, “wear with anything” shoes that will last you forever.

 

Brown

Most people associate brown with sensibility (and as an extension, boring), conveniently forgetting that there is so much more about this shade than this. Brown is actually an elegant color, radiating a sense of class and formality. Furthermore, since it is a neutral shade, you can mix and match it with a variety of outfits and look great in each one of them.

 

The past few years saw the emergence of dark brown heels,brown sexy pumps, brown wedge shoes, and other kinds of footwear of the same hue on fashion catwalks all over the world.

 

Nude/Beige

 

Nude or Beige shoes transition well from season to season, they’re phenomenally flattering, and, most importantly, they’re different. If you don’t have a pair of nude heels of your own, they are a style you must invest in. You’ll be able to integrate your new pumps into your wardrobe seamlessly, and may even find yourself picking them instead of your basic black when you’re getting ready to go out!

 

Statement Color

 

You should have at least one pair of shoes that will add a great pop of color to any outfit. Your options are really endless depending on your personal taste and style. If you have more classic taste then go with a lipstick red (not a stripper red, which would be super bright, almost neon).  Other good colors include magenta, cobalt, and mustard. My personal “pop” shoes are teal satin Nine West platforms.

 

Animal Print

 

People either love them or hate them. I personally love them and wear them frequently. Animal print shoes are all the rage – everybody should at least one pair!  They look great on your feet.  Even the most simple outfit becomes fabulous with a great pair of animal print shoes.
