Wardrobe Essentials: The Most Common Types of Shoes Every Woman Should Own
Whenever I want to emphasise how every woman is special in her own unique way, I point out to shoes since this parallel never lets me down – I’ve never been in a room with two women wearing the same model and colour of shoes. Also, the way in which they make a powerful duo with the right handbag furthermore strengthens that notion. Now although the options are endless, depending on the season and the purpose of a pair, there are certain types which are considered must-haves for every woman.
The Black Pump
Known for their simple yet elegant appearance, black pumps are all about giving you the needed dose of style in your overall look. These closed-toe shoes are available as round toe pump, pointy toe pumps or square toe pumps in an endless array of colours. They can be found in a range of materials, out of which the most universal, durable and stylish material is genuine leather. The heel size also varies in order for you to be able to find the right height for the occasion. These super modern and all-time-favourite shoes can be worn literally with everything, starting from simple jeans and ending with some elegant dress.
Having a pair of flats in your wardrobe can save the day in many situations. You can wear them when your feet feel tired or you need a more simple and flat type of footwear to complement your look. Many people say that they actually resemble black pumps a lot, only without the heel. Just like pumps, flat ballerinas will never go out of style mainly because of their appearance, but also the comfort they offer. Although flat, they are stylish and elegant enough to complement even a more formal type of clothes, making them the ideal choice for those of you who work in a bank or an office. Just like any other type of shoes, flats are also available in a range of designs, colours and materials, allowing you to choose the ideal option.
What are Slides Shoes?
Womens slide shoes or also known as slide sandals are a type of footwear that resembles flip flops a lot. The main difference between these two is in the details. Generally speaking, womens slide shoes are simple, stylish and one of the comfiest shoes, ideal for everyday use. Usually, these shoes have an open toe area and a wide strap that covers the feet. Unlike flip flops, they are available with or without heel, and can also come in a wedge form. The name ‘slides’ comes form their ease of use, as you only need to slide your feet inside and get going without zipping them or tying them.
What are Slides Shoes Made Out Of?
Slide shoes are made from a range of different materials like leather, rubber, polyester, etc. Other things that women’s slide sandals can have are contoured gel footbed, elastic straps, heel and arch support, cushioning, etc. This all depends on the type and quality of slides you choose as not all of them are designed the same and with the same purpose in mind. Some indoor womens sliders are made from leather, cotton and wool to keep your feet warmer.
Although appropriate for everyday and casual wear, some slides are designed for more formal and sophisticated use. Usually, these are made from suede and leather and can come with or without any detail on their upper side. Some of the newest models of women slides are the ones with feathers, fur and pearls to make them more stylish and fun. Although slides are considered to be a summer type of footwear, some fashion designers state that they can be worn even in spring and fall as an addition to some fancy suit.
A woman’s wardrobe cannot be complete without sneakers. Although in the past women would wear sneakers only with sports clothes, nowadays, sneakers can be worn with almost everything. For those days when you feel tired and seek comfort, but still want to stay stylish, sneakers can always come to the rescue. Whether you want to wear a simple black dress, denim skirt, jeans, more formal ankle-length pants or a pencil skirt, sneakers can come in handy. White, black, red, pink or some stylish ombre combo, there are lots of colours to choose from, you just need to figure out what you would wear the most.
With or without heels, ankle boots are another type of versatile shoes that can be worn for almost any occasion. For a more formal look, you can opt for heeled ankle boots that can also be worn on a daily basis. Flat ankle boots are also an option, just keep in mind that you can’t wear them if you work in a bank or in an office that requires a formal dress code.
