Five types of shoes every woman should own

Strut your stuff with these must-have items of footwear

The classic nude heel 

A nude heel is a must-have for any stylish woman because, much like a black dress, it goes with everything – from a pleated skirt to jeans or a dress. They’re flattering, delicate and elongate the legs.

Try: Aldo, Christian Louboutin 

A block heel 

Chunky block heels are perfect if you’re looking for comfortable yet chic, on-trend footwear.

It’s a stable pair of heels that allows you to run office errands easily while looking stylish. Pair them with boyfriend jeans, a soft knit top or a vintage dress.

Try: Steve Madden 


Smart loafers or brogues 

A trend we’ve borrowed from the boys, brogues are a wardrobe staple – anything androgynous works wonders for any outfit. Brogues are comfortable and work well all year round.

Try: Zara, Luminance 

Leather boots 

A boot that goes with everything and has a comfortable heel will serve you well throughout the year. They look great paired down and dressed up, offering versatility.

Try: Cotton On

The ballerina heel 

The ballerina heel is fairly minimal and clean, giving you a sense of ease and elegance. The kitten heel adds just a little elevation, which makes these shoes perfect for ladies who aren’t really into heels but who would like some height and comfort.
