Shoe classics your wardrobe needs

March 28th, 2012


We always talk about the things that every woman should have in her wardrobe, the classic white shirt, skinny jeans, little black dress etc. But what should every woman have in her shoe wardrobe? If you think about it, one type of shoe definitely doesn’t fit all occasions, or all outfits. The right kind of shoe can make an outfit, whilst the wrong shoes can kill it stone dead.

I thought about this whilst I was browsing through one of my favourite shoe sites, Spartoo, looking for some summer sandals for my Easter break (hoping this glorious weather lasts just that bit longer…). Spartoo does have shoes for all occasions, here are some that caught my eye.

The loafer – for casual days and weekends

Loafers are the perfect shoes to wear at the weekend. Comfortable for wearing to give the shops a pounding, casual with jeans, these are the perfect shoes for days when you don’t need to try so hard. I love the glossy patent orange of the Meline Cori loafer, a gorgeous shade perfect for Spring.

The Flip -Flop –  for the beach and beyond

If you are choosing a pair of flip-flops, do you ever look further than Havaianas? The Queen of all flip-flops, these are practical, comfortable and cool. I bought my first pair in Majorca in 2006 and never looked back.

 Mary Janes – a smart and stylish work shoe

Your feet need to show they mean business when they enter the workplace. I really like these patent Mary Jane styled shoes by Belmondo that were apparently inspired by an Argentinian tango shoe. The heel is not too high and the red soles will have your workmates whispering ‘are they Lou…?’

Nude heels – for those Middleton moments

Going to a wedding, day at the races, summer christening? The nude heel was invented for these sorts of events, and their popularity has soared since they were shown by patronage by Her Royal Highness, Duchess Kate.

The showstopper – for those special evening occasions

Every girl needs a special pair of shoes in her wardrobe, the sort of shoes that just looking at can make you smile. These may be shoes you have lusted over forever, saved up for months to buy. I’m currently lusting over the Laina’s from House of Harlow 1960 – pure shoe porn!
