The Everyday

Every woman needs a pair of staple black heels in a moderate height. They transition seamlessly from day to night, go with any outfit, and are perfect for traveling since the height won’t hurt your feet. These pumps are suede – which stretches a bit and conforms to your foot beautifully. For a more weather-friendly option, find a 3-3.5″ heel in calfskin leather. While they may stretch a tiny bit if they get wet, they’ll be less high-maintenance than suede.

The Pop of Color

You know you want this shoe. Seriously, who can resist a gorgeous cobalt blue pump like this one?! The “pop of color” heel is on my list of staples because everyone needs the option to jazz up an otherwise neutral outfit if they’re feeling fun. Keep your wardrobe palette in mind when choosing the color or pattern since some might wear a snakeskin or leopard pattern more than a bright, summery tone.

The Classic Neutral

I tend to section my outfits into two distinct looks: relaxed, earthy casuals and fancy monochromatic minimalist looks. I would argue that most of us do this with our outfits. While a black or colored heel is great for more striking, bold looks, the neutral heel is meant to bring a little understated class to any ensemble. I love pairing these heels with other neutrals since the khaki suede makes the entire look appear expensive. If people only know that I paid under $50 for them! 🙂

The Wedge

Ahhh the wedge. Everyone’s best friend and go-to walking shoe. While I’ve chosen a variation on my everyday option, you could chose a sandal. However, keep in mind that you’re wanting these staples to be versatile, which means that you can wear them in any situation or weather. Many employers don’t allow employees to wear open-toed shoes and a sandal doesn’t transition into colder temps very well. The awesome thing about a closed-toe wedge is that you can wear them with leggings or stockings when the weather cools down!

The Night Out

Ooooo la la. I love these heels so much. Like the “pop of color” heel, these are meant to show off your fun side! While they may not be as versatile as the rest of the shoes in your wardrobe, they’re a necessity because you can throw them on for a night out or wear them for special occasions. You can choose any color or style you’d like, but I’d suggest going a little higher in the heel – legs for days! – and opting for a metallic sheen in a neutral color. A shoe like this will say that you’re effortlessly fancy. And cool – very cool.
