For most women, shoes are their weakness. They need to have their favourite shoes in multiple colours to match every dress. And who can blame them? Shoes are a major part of our entire ensemble, and they complete our look. For women, there are a wide variety of shoes that go with every type of dress for any and all events. Each type of shoes has its own identity and history. There are shoes that are functional, shoes that are aesthetically very pleasing and shoes that are a mixture of both. Most of us can remember the feeling that we had as we entered a shoe store. Various types of shoes were placed in displays across the length of the store, and it seemed like everyone was calling out to us. Of course, nowadays, things have changed a little. Now you can buy women’s boots online without setting foot outside your house. Thanks to technology, you can even use apps that are available now to see how you would look in those shoes, or you can match them with a dress to see if they go with it or not.
The problem that usually arises is that when we have a lot of options in front of us, we might get a little bit confused as to which one to buy and which one to leave for another day.
What to Wear and When
Certain types of boots and shoes go for a certain type of event and then there are shoes that you can wear to multiple types of events, whether they are casual or formal. It depends on you and how much you want to follow a certain trend or fashion. Here we have compiled a list of 10 shoes that you need to make a part of your wardrobe.
Here are some of the casual shoes that you absolutely must-have in your possession. These are the shoes that you wear on a daily basis, and they usually go with casual wear to give a chill and relaxed look. These are mostly comprised of shoes with comfortable heels that are not too high. But there are some shoes that have high heels as some women wear them either in the morning or at night too.
Wedges are the shoes you want to wear if you want that extra elevation without them becoming extremely high and uncomfortable. Wedges are very comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time without feeling pain. Especially lower wedges can provide you with more comfort and ease.
Forget about ballet, and you can wear these beauties everywhere that you go. They are pretty as well as practical and are the perfect answer to your everyday problem of wearing something that is functional as well as beautiful. Ballet pumps are flat shoes that are the same type as slippers, and they come in every imaginable colour and print.
Basically, any shoes that have laces to fasten them are called lace-ups. These can be loafers, brogues, or any other type of shoes.

5. Wellington Boots
These are extremely stylish as well as practical. Called Wellies for short, the wellington boots are the perfect companions in the winter and for any outdoor event that you might have to attend like a concert, festival or some other sort of event. Do not let that keep you from wearing them indoors. They are made of think rubber and have a thick sole that can make it very easy for you to walk on uneven terrains and surfaces.
Women’s Dress Shoes
Formal events call for shoes that are much dressier than your average casual shoes. Although there are events that you can wear casual shoes too, most of the formal events like weddings, business meetings, and such need shoes that give a more sophisticated and elegant look. The term ‘dress shoes’ is a bit old now and now these shoes are called ‘women’s formal shoes’ or just ‘party shoes’.
The most common type of formal shoes is heels. Whether you have to go to an evening out with friends or you have to attend a wedding, they are there for you. There is a wide variety of heels that are available to you. These shoes differ in their styles as well as the types of heels.
6. Court Shoes
For almost all the events that you have to attend, court shoes can work with your dress. Whether it’s an annual meeting at the company or a nighttime wedding, you can wear them confidently to give an elegant look. Court shoes do not have a very high heel. They have a pointed toe, and the top line of the shoes sits low on foot.
You might think that brogues are only for men, but they are also a part of women’s fashion. They are flat shoes that give an extremely formal look. Wear them with a summer dress to give a masculine feel to a feminine dress. Wear them with a traditional and classic dress to complete the polished and sophisticated look.
