Let’s be real: Women really are addicted to shoes. We love our sandals, our high heels, our boots. We love them all! Carrie Bradshaw wasn’t lying when she belabored her love for shoes on Sex and the City. While you probably love shoes, you have to ask yourself: Do I really have a complete shoe collection? If your collection is missing any of these pairs, we don’t think you do! Check out eight pairs of shoes that every woman should own:
1. White Tennis Shoes
A pair of white tennis shoes are the perfect casual shoe for the perfect casual outfit. Think of a standard pair of Keds! They go with jeans a t-shirt. They go with cute capris and a sweater. They’re truly more versatile than you’d ever think.
2. Red Pumps
A good pair of red pumps add the perfect pop of color to any work outfit or any night-out-on-the-town ensemble. They’re sexy. They’re flattering. They’re totally chic and timeless.
3. Black Pumps
Take literally everything we just said about red pumps, and apply it to black pumps. Having a pair of black pumps and red pumps is the essential amount of sexy that you need in your shoe collection.
4. Leather Boots
We don’t care if they’re brown, black, tan, or whatever – you need a quality pair of leather boots in your wardrobe. They’ll come in handy for all of your Fall and Winter outfits by keeping you warm and just looking fantastic, honestly.
