What woman doesn’t love a beautiful pair of shoes?  Shoes can add interest to what would normally be a basic outfit.  For example, a pair of sleek black heels make a black skirt and white top look chic and elegant.  A comfy pair of stylish sneakers make denim shorts and a white tee look like the perfect weekend outfit.  Yes, shoes are essential, but what kind of shoes you choose to wear really shows your personality and helps make a statement with your outfits.

I have rounded up six pairs of shoes every woman must own.  Of course there are shoes of all kinds out there, but these shoes are considered wardrobe staples, shoes that you will reach for time and time again.


Black pumps are the most basic dressy and chic shoe.  These can easily be added to any outfit to take it from Day to Night in one simple step (see what I did there???… Step…Hahahaha).


Ankle boots, particularly suede or leather.  If you opt for a taupe colour, the neutral shade will go with just about everything.  Wear them with dresses, jeans and skirts.  They are the go-to shoe for the cooler months.

Ballet flats are the perfect flats to wear everyday.  You will look polished and put together by wearing these on the go.  The more colours the better, it’s simple and easy to add a pop of colour with your flats

Wedge sandals – These give you just that added little “bit”. A “bit” of extra height and just dress up your summer outfit a ‘bit”


Flat sandals they are one of the most popular shoes of the summer.  You can wear them in the spring or anytime during warm weather.  The possibilities are nearly endless with this shoe.

Sneakers, are comfy and in-style.  If you have only one pair of sneakers, I suggest they be white as they go with everything and  hey are the perfect all-arounder.

Jandals, the good old kiwi jandals are the perfect all year round, these are not partially stylish however they do serve a purpose and every kiwi woman MUST have a pair in her wardrobe
