If you have ever watched Sex And The City, then the exquisite collection of shoes in Ms. Bradshaw’s wardrobe must-have sparked some desire to own a closet like that. Her Manolo Blahnik heels which were her ‘something blue’ for the wedding inspired many future brides #ShoesGoals. A colossal wardrobe might sound great but it does not guarantee practicality. There are far too many varieties of shoes available to settle for one. But before splurging on another pair make sure you have got your basics covered. Yes, Basic Shoes. Not boring but practical and essential shoes of 2018 to have in your wardrobe which can be paired with everything at any point. Read on to get your #ShoeGame on point.
1. Black Pumps
There is a reason that black colour has been given the title of a classic and timeless colour. Black is the most sophisticated colour to have in your wardrobe, whether in accessories or clothes. A pair of black pumps will not only be office appropriate but can easily be translated into a regular day option with the advantage of added height.
2. Nude Pumps
A Nude pair of heels is as essential as a black one. For when your outfit is too delicate to be worn with black, or when you want your legs to look leaner opt for a nude pair. Pumps are always working appropriate and having them in lightest and darkest shade will resolve your dilemma for when you are in hurry or just plain confused.
3. Black/White Sneakers
For past two years, sneakers have been a rage among street style stars, bloggers and masses alike. This is one trend that is still going strong, from dad sneakers to most recent grandpa sneakers. You can either invest in black sneakers or white sneakers and if you can then both. Sneakers can be worn with dresses, pants, shorts and even maxi dresses for a cool vibe or with tapered pants and suits for a chicer look. Advance in a high-end pair like Christopher Cane or check our high street option from Zara, Mango etc. Chuck Taylors are never a wrong option
4. Heeled Sandals
Heeled sandals whether block, pencil or wedge are also an essential pair to have in your shoe closet. Heeled sandals in bright quirky prints are perfect for brunches and casual parties whereas heeled sandals in earthy tone are perfect for Indian wear where you do not want your shoes to overpower your already blingy outfit. Dune and Charles and Keith are good options for bright shoes while Nine West and Aldo serve the purpose of earthy tones. If you want to splurge on, then go for Sophia Webster.
Though socks with sandals might be a trend, more like a fad, pumps and sandals cannot be worn on regular basis in winter. For cities like Delhi and Chandigarh, it becomes important to invest in a trusty pair or pairs of boots. A classic knee-high leather style in black will never go out of style. For a practical winter wardrobe, invest in two pairs- Knee High and Ankle length. You can buy both the options is different colours maintaining the practicality and making maximum use out of your boots. Buy different heel length for different options.
6. Flat Sandals
Flats shoes are evenly important as heeled shoes. For days when you have to walk or days when heels just won’t do it, buy a strappy pair of flat sandals in bright colours since you will already have nude and black heels. A cherry red, bright pink or cheery yellow might look good but a multicolour option will work well with everything without you having to worry about colour matching. Think Valentino rockstuds or Betsey Johnson.
7. Flat Ballerinas
The final pair to have is a pair of ballet flats in any colour. Ballet flats will work well with your formal wear. They can be easily translated from office wear to casual wear. Ballet flats are available in million styles and colours and you can select them on basis of your personal style or if you are building a practical closet; then investing in a pair that will combine all the looks together will be a good choice. You can always buy Loafer flats if ballet flats are not your style.
