If you are obsessed with shoes and want to own a closet lined with expensive designer footwear like those Hollywood divas but have limited financial capacity, the only way you can have an option for every occasion and every outfit is by examining your wardrobe.
Not sure what we mean? Let us explain. If you know what types of clothes your wardrobe stocks and what colors they are mostly, you are never going to have to run to the market to buy matching footwear every time you are invited somewhere. You will always have something to slide your feet through.
To build a collection that never disappoints you, you need to be aware of various women’s shoe styles as well as the kind of outfit each style complements. From different styles of sandals to the latest fashion sandals, this article will cover everything you need to know.
Common Women’s Shoe Styles
From flats to heels, there are various women’s shoe styles. As the fashion runway keeps extending, a new style walks it every time. For example, heels alone have over 30 styles. All hail the innovative fashion designers who are always trying to bring something new! It’s not possible to talk about each style of the different types of ladies’ sandals, so we will cover broad categories with only the most common styles.
Heels are just not footwear; they are a reminder of how beautiful you are. However, if you wish to slide your feet through heels to bring out the dainty dancing Cinderella in you, a few considerations are critical to ensure comfort.
First and foremost, you need to choose between platform and non-platform heels. Platform heels have a thick sole that makes you look taller than you would in non-platform heels, which only have high heels with the front almost touching the ground. Because of the thick sole, your heel doesn’t stretch as much as it does in non-platform heels. Although non-platform heels look more delicate and appealing, platform heels are more comfortable.
Next comes the height. Heels go all the way from 1 inch to 4 inches. If you are 5.5 feet or above, don’t wear heels higher than 2 inches. You will develop a hunch trying to greet others.
The third consideration should be the material. Most heels are made of leather, and good-quality leather shoes and sandals only get better with time, softening and adapting to your size. However, the question is, how can you find it out at the time of purchase? Well, you can always read the description. In case the description doesn’t mention the type of material/leather used, you can ask the seller.
Last but not least is the design – whether you want a closed almond-shaped toe or something with an open toe and straps. If you have broad feet, it may not be a good idea to walk in closed heels. It will be torturing your poor fingers.
If you don’t want the elevated look, you have when you wear heels, flats can be a refreshing change. Like heels and other women’s sandals, flats come in various styles, including flip-flops, slides, and mules. While flip-flops are the comfiest footwear ever designed, you can’t wear them out. They cast the impression of a sluggish, slapdash person who doesn’t care about how she looks.
You don’t want to look too bothered about your look, but you don’t want to look bad either. You want to look effortlessly good. For such a look, you can go with slides or mules. They would make a classy choice.
Closed footwear, such as espadrilles and ballerinas, provides your feet with protection from sunburn and keeps them relaxed. You can run around in them without having to worry about any damage.
Espadrilles are the most comfortable ladies’ sandals you can get in summer. You can even sleep with them on. The elastic rubber sole gives your feet a firm grip on the ground. For this reason, espadrilles are ideal for flat feet.
Not only that, but they also look quite stylish and can go with almost any choice of trousers from culottes to jeans. What’s more, you can wear them anytime and anywhere – be it a beach party or a hangout with friends. What makes them even more popular is that they are as cheap as lunch, costing no more than 30 bucks.
Sneakers are another type of casual closed footwear and make the best choice to wear with your gym suit. For formal dressing, you can go with loafers. They look like espadrilles but are made of leather.
