The Shoe Shopping Guide
As tempting as it can be to stockpile your shoe closet with feathery, sparkly, sky-high heels, we’ll grudgingly admit it’s not the most practical strategy. Combine all four of these always-chic flats, sandals, heels, and sneakers (yes, sneakers!) to save yourself from what-to-wear moments—and some painful blisters. If we lived by Carrie Bradshaw's rules, then you'd probably be asking yourself "should I wear heels today?" and the answer would always be yes, but it depends, there is so much to chose from! We don't have the budget (or closet space for that matter) to jump on every single trend. To make your shopping experience more seamless, we narrowed it down to four shoe styles that every woman should own at least one of. Are you still wondering where to buy shoes online? You've come to the right place.
Slip on a pair of sneakers on those days when you've really got your hands full. You'll be comfy and look chic. Now if only every outfit warranted that description! Gym sneakers are meant for the gym, but a pair of cute kicks like these are a wardrobe basic worth investing in. They'll look a whole lot sweeter with jeans than your cross-fit sneakers will. From Adidas to Missguided, you'll find the trend that best suits your style.
Basic sandals are meant for those days when you decide to lose track of time, laze in the grass or wander without direction. Or those days when you merely wish you could. Come Spring and Summer, we make the seasonal shift to only wearing these types of shoe. Great sandals are easy to walk in and pair just as well with party dresses as they do with casual shorts and denim. Think of these as your much-cooler alternative to flip-flops. Since we gravitate toward flat sandals all Summer long, make sure you opt for a pair with details you'll be happy to slip into on a daily basis. Something with a fun color or great studded finish can up the ante on your everyday dress.
Every girl needs a pair of sexy heels in her arsenal. Whether you opt for an inexpensive vibrant brand, or a statement strap luxury heel, or something more versatile, this pair should be the one you throw on with everything from jeans to your evening dresses to feel instantly sexy. This pair of polished pumps will never let you down. These are a classically chic finish to everything, from the office to your evenings out.
Giving everyday dresses and jeans a chic Parisian flair, ballet flats are essential to your wardrobe, especially after a long night out (or even just a half hour) in those daring high heels. To liven up the mood, pick em up in a bright color to be on-the-go. Ballet flats are a no-fuss solution to feeling polished and pulled together while on the go. They're equal parts ladylike and casual, meaning we can wear them with pretty pleated skirts, shift dresses, or even cutoffs.
