The 8 staple shoes every woman needs in her closet
You can really never have too many pairs of shoes
You might be able to get away with having just one solid black bag, but shoes? Options are definitely a necessity.
Our schedules are always filled a whole lot of activities – be it that interview with a potential employer, or your anniversary date with your other half. You can’t be possibly wearing the same shoes to these occasions.
Besides not matching the rest of your outfit, the shoes you choose to wear also set an impression on the person you’re meeting – wearing casual shoes at a formal event might come off as disrespectful, while wearing stilettos in the park is just plain ridiculous. That’s why choosing what you wear is important.
We’ll guide on you these decisions, by letting you in on the 8 staples that are essential in every woman’s closet – so you’re always dressing proper and chic.
Nothing beats the comfort and fuss-free element of throwing on a good old pair of sneakers. They’re great shoes to own because of their ability to be worn in almost every situation – a picnic, a casual dinner date or an overseas trip. When not to wear it? For formal meetings or interviews.
This Comme Des Garcons x Converse pair is uber versatile because of it comes in an easy-to-match white shade. We’re digging the brand’s quirky signature heart-shaped print on it.

The athleisure trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. The ankle-hugging boot is a firm favourite amongst celebrities and the street-style pack for its edgy look and slimming illusion.
Sock-boots are great to wear whenever you’re feeling a little more sassy or daring. You could wear them with pants, skirts or even dresses, but rule of thumb – always make sure there’s at least a three-finger spacing between the bottom of your outfit and the top of your boot.
When you’re looking to purchase a sock-boot, we’d suggest solid colours. This stark-white pair will surely be a standout point of your outfit.
The classic black pump is the quintessential go-to pair, they’ll make any outfit a notch more sophisticated. It’ll also help to elongate your legs and they provide a slimming effect (that we wish happened without heels too!)
On days that you don’t want to put up with the hassle of stuffy shoes or uncomfortable heels, sandals are a fuss-free option. They’re perfect for wind-down days when you’re wearing a dress or shorts. But we say for an absolutely laid-back look, it’s best to wear sandals with some comfy linen pants.
