Shoes Every Woman Should Own

Marilyn Monroe

Those of you who have followed my fashion blog know that I’m a huge shoe lover. If only I could afford it, I would buy shoes every week. My collection currently features 110 pairs but I’ve recently spotted this gorgeous Dorothy Perkins Blue Bow heels so it may grow a bit soon. While I understand that not everyone is so obsessed with footwear, I’m a firm believer that there are certain types of shoes every woman should own.

shoes every woman should ownBlack court shoes

You can never go wrong with a pair of classic black court shoes. They add a touch of glamour to any outfit regardless of whether you are wearing a pencil skirt or jeans.

Nude heels

Some people say that nude is the new black. Nude heels not only go well with everything but they also create a streamlined effect to make your legs look miles long. What more do you need?

Statement shoes

If you invest in statement shoes, you will never get stuck in a wardrobe rut. They can easily transform even the most boring outfit into a super stylish ensemble.


I used to hate trainers as I associated them with the ugly shoes that I had to wear during PE lessons at school. Now trainers are my go to shoes if I’m lazy and need to give my feet some rest.

Flat shoes 

Flat pumps are a perfect alternative to trainers if you want to feel comfortable and look more polished. They are a life saver so I make sure I keep a pair under my desk. They’ve come in handy many times.

Ankle boots

With abundance of styles available each season, everyone can find something for themselves regardless of whether you’re a huge fan of metallics or the velvet trend.

Tall boots 

Knee high or over the knee boots will keep your pins warm during the colder months. They can be a huge investment so remember to look after them properly.

Do you have these shoes in your wardrobe? Is there anything else you would add to my list?
