After all, shoes have the ability to make you feel totally sexy, strong and wildly feminine. They also have the capacity to transform your simple outfit into something luxe.
But before you do anything rush the next time you find your pulse beating fast and your breath labored merely with the sight of a fabulous pair of shoes, bear these in mind … Not all beautiful shoes are a must-have. After you’ve covered the basics, meaning, you have enough shoes to prevent you from walking barefoot to the market or wearing slippers to work, you need this list of shoes to enhance your collection.
1. Knee-high, high-heeled boots
You can wear your knee-high, high heeled boots with anything; skirts, jeans, trousers, you name it. They quickly spice up your outfit. They give your look a fresh and youthful spin.
Really, they’re capable of making you look thinner and younger.
2. Riding boots
They’re not really your most significant must-haves because you can still live a happy life even without them; however, there’s a reason why fashionistas must include them to their collection – because they’re the most versatile and most comfortable boots to walk in.
They’re casual-chic and can be worn with skirts or trousers. Unlike the motorcycle boots, they’re often not too edgy and they easily go with most of your outfits.
3. Classic high heel pumps
You might think high-heeled pumps have already lost their allure now with tons of fabulous and sexy shoes to choose from. No. They’re your eternally elegant footwear.
There are so many options for you. You can go for mary janes with a delicate ankle strap or a simple beautiful crafted basic pump.
4. Ballet flats
Ballet flats have become a fashion constant ever since Audrey Hepburn wore them with skinny jeans in the 1957 movie “Funny Face”. And she did wear them best, in almost all of her movies. Every fashionista must have a pair of this chic ballet flats. They can be dressed up or down and are very comfortable to wear.
There are lots of chic stilettos that you can choose from, be it open or closed-toe. They’re a must for cocktail parties, in fact, for any party.
They have to be glamorous and sexy. And they should never look cheap. Cheap stilettos not only show how much they’re worth, they also are not comfortable to wear and they often don’t last.
Other than their beauty, you must also consider if you can stand and walk for a couple of hours without limping in your stilettos. Choose the height wisely.
They can be cheap or expensive; it’s really up to you. After all, sandals are all for fun. They’re cute and are mostly good company whenever you’d rather feel relaxed, casual and flirty.
Lately, I love quite a lot of gladiator sandals.
And there’s one rule for me, there has to be enough room for my toes to spread but the feet must be safely secured by its straps. The toes don’t slide forward and hang off the sole.
Before I became a fashionista, especially during my university days, fashion for me was defined by sneakers and sports shoes. Not that it was wrong, but it made me looked like I was always heading to the gym. Not anymore!
While I still love Converse, Adidas, Nike, Puma, Keds, and I might covet a pair of North Face, I only wear them when I’m off for my yoga class or I go jogging.
Know where to wear them and where not to wear them.
