Investing in the right pair of shoes is as important as the mattress you sleep on. The right pair of shoes will give you support, long-wearing comfort and masterfully complete any outfit you wear – perfectly in-tune with your personal style. My current favorites include a few that have already made their way in to my collection, (thanks to some clever saving and patience) whilst the remainder sit eagerly on a wish list amidst a good handful of others. Today I’ve summarized my list of essential footwear that covers everything from basic day-day wear, leading to my ultimate statement shoes for standout moments.
1: SIMPLE POINTED FLATS
The epitome of comfort and proven time and again as the most versatile footwear you can invest in. Style them with tailored pants and blazer, a mid-length skirt or above-the-knee dresses for the perfect office attire. Alternatively, take your flats out for Sunday brunch and pair them with your favorite boyfriend jeans and structured tee for an effortless approach to weekend dressing.

2: LEATHER MULES
An absolute must-have and worth the time invested in finding the perfect fit and shape for your lifestyle needs. I usually gravitate towards a lower heel height, like these, but I’d recommend investing in something chunkier with more height for formal occasions and events.

3. CROSSOVER STRAP SLIDERS
If you haven’t bought in to the Birkenstocks trend, then these might be more up your alley. Thanks to their slimmed out shape and range of colors and materials, you can shop the crossover slider just about anywhere. That being said, for the ultimate luxe-appeal, invest in a pair with a solid base and heavy-duty straps, as these tend to tag along just about everything on your summer to-do list. Comfort and effortless style perfectly fused.

4. STATEMENT LEATHER HEELS
aka – the standout, statement shoes. If you’re after more than just a one-night Cinderella slipper, opt for a bold design in a solid color (choose neutral or black for optimal wear) which you can wear with every color imaginable without worrying about color-clashing.
