12 shoes every woman should own

If you ask me, next to diamonds, shoes are a girl's best friend. We can never have too many as Carrie Bradshaw said. If we lived by Carrie Bradshaw's rules, then we could never have too many shoes. Sometimes, we think that may be the case. However, we don't have the budget (or closet space for that matter) to jump on every single trend.

To save you money and make your wardrobe planning a little easier, we've zeroed in on the 12 key shoe styles every woman should have in her closet. If you adhere to this foolproof footwear plan, then you'll always have the pair you need. From your secret-weapon statement shoe to the go-anywhere ankle boot, click on to see, shop, and stock your closet with all the necessary ingredients.

1. Basic Black Pumps

A basic black pump in suede or leather is the ultimate go-to, they pull together any outfit and add instant sophistication. Pumps are perfect because they help elongate your legs and they can easily switch from the office to your evenings out. These are a classically chic finish to everything.

2. Ankle Strap Sandals

The beauty about these is that they are s3xy, they go with just about anything and they lengthen your legs. Now tell me who doesn't want all that?

3. Animal Print Heels

Animal print has always been my go to, to add spice to my closet. Snakeskin or leopard heels add sultry style to your look. We also consider this print a neutral when mixing with other prints. Choose a neutral coloured print so it’s easy to mix and match with other prints.

4. Metallic Heels

Metallic heels are classic and a must have for every woman. They are a no-brainer for an evening look—but they also work for daytime. If you want heels that will always look good when you wear your Aso Ebi, then you need metallic heels

5. Sneakers

 A pair of cute kicks like these is a wardrobe basic worth investing in. They'll look a whole lot sweeter with jeans than your cross-trainers will. A fashionable sneaker is the perfect weekend shoe, pair it with jeans and dresses alike.

6. Flat Sandals

Think of these as your much cooler alternative to flip-flops. Make sure you opt for a pair with details you'll be happy to slip into on a daily basis. Something with a fun colour or great studded finish can up the ante on your everyday dress.

7. Summer Wedges

Great wedges are easy to walk in and pair just as well with party dresses as they do with casual shorts and denim.

8. Basic Ballet Flats

Ballet flats (or skimmer 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.

9. Natural Hue Ankle Boots

Every girl should own a pair of boots, and this type is perfect. It's no wonder these ankle boots have a huge celebrity following. The neutral hue and walkable heel will serve you well year-round.

10. Statement heels

Every girl needs a pair of seriously s3xy heels in her arsenal. Whether you opt for vibrant colour, a statement print, or ultra s3xy detailing, this pair should be the one you throw on with everything from jeans to your evening dresses to feel instantly s3xy.

11. Nud3 heels

Nude heels are a no-brainer for completing our evening looks as well as our dressier day ensembles. They're seasonless, go with everything, and pull double duty, lengthening our stems.

12. Smart Oxfords/ Loafers

This is my favourite on the list. They are so comfortable and classy. Smart brogues or loafers have become a wardrobe mainstay. Think of these as an office-to-off-duty alternative to sneakers with a preppy-cool twist.
