12 shoes every woman should own

I’m pretty sure shoes are a woman’s best friend. With endless options each season, it’s hard not to amass a collection of pumps in a rainbow of colors, or more than 10 pairs of black boots. So, if you’re looking to make a major investment this season, or a closet cleaning is on your horizon, here’s an easy guide to help you streamline. Scroll through for the classic shoes every fashionable woman should have in her closet.

Black pumps

A basic black pump in suede or leather is the ultimate go-to, they pull together any outfit and add instant sophistication.

Ballet flats

The quintessial run-around shoe, and a preppy-wardrobe staple, we favor a basic black or a bright color when it comes to flats.

Animal print shoes

Snakeskin or leopard heels add sultry style to your look. We also consider this print a neutral when mixing with other prints.

Short stacked heels

This ’90s style is making a serious comeback—the stacked heel gives you a little height without sacricing any comfort.

  1. I say if you are going to buy ONE pair of shoes this Fall, go with the black ankle boot. It matches everything (and I mean e v e r y t h i n g) and it gives an edgy touch to even the most mundane outfits. xo
