The thing about being a fashion-girl is that you’ll never have ‘enough’ clothes. Or shoes. Or accessories. You get the drift, don’t you? On a serious note, there are wardrobe staples of every kind; but right now I’m (shamelessly) obsessing over my shoe-story. Being a proud owner of over 30 pairs of heels and around 40 pairs of flats, I think it’s safe to say that I’m quite the pro when it comes to buying friends for my feet. I’m going to tell you about the must have seven styles that every girl’s wardrobe should include, no matter what!
The Everyday Flats
Everyone has a lazy day, the time you don’t feel like hopping around the city in heels and not boarding the train a few inches higher. Plus, heels can be quite annoying if you try to drive in them all the time. In this case, you absolutely must have that go-to pair of flat sandals that you know you can either change into or simply wear around on a hopelessly casual day.
The best in-between for those of you who don’t like to wear flats for fear of posture, and yet, aren’t always super comfortable in all-day heels. You know you want to find mid-ground and are quite tired of having to change your footwear every now and then. This one is your new BFF, for sure. With new designs and the current trends going the way they are, you have more than just a handful of options that will help you find your perfect match.
The Classic Stilettos
Just like there’s nothing like an LBD for an IDontKnowWhatToWear kind of situation, there’s a pair of black (or nude) pumps that must always be on stand by to be there for the rescue. Be it an outfit that there’s nothing ‘matching’ with, or a simple block in your mind; a neutral color is always great to have for a fashion emergency.
The Kitten Heel
Definitely not my personal style, but from what I know and have tried on a couple of rare occasions, it’s nice to have that little back up you can count on with the smallest heel in the world. While my personal mantra is “sky high or nothing”, I do recommend that you try this once for yourself before deciding – must be especially nice for people who travel a lot.
The Cool Print
Prints have long since taken over our world, so why leave your pretty feet behind? Make sure that you have at least one quirky, cool print to add some zing to your casual look – it’s one of the simplest and safest ways to glam yourself up in no time!
The Bedazzling Ones
For an Indian girl, it’s so important to have those ‘shaadi shoes’; you never want to wear your regular ol’ pumps with an Indian outfit, do you? For a time like that, it’s best to have your bling-y collection in store. Bonus points for throwing this on an Indo-western or fully western look, to add the glamour factor that you could use!
They’re Sexy And You Know It
Nothing specific about this one. You might have a tall pair of stilettos already, and you may even have another little heel here and there. But just like watching Katrina Kaif in Dhoom 3 (completely unnecessary, but present for eye candy), you might want to have this super sexy pair you’ve been eyeing and obsessing over anyway. Get them! Even better if they’re on sale.
