You’ve spent a long time deliberating your outfit but now you need to determine what shoe works best. To ensure you always have something to wear- shoes for every outfit it you will, we’ve compiled a quick go-to guide for shoes.


Outside of the gym, it’s always good to have a pair of trainers on hand for when you want a more casual look. We favour a crisp white sneaker as this will go with almost any outfit when you want something a little more relaxed, and of course, comfortable.

Yes, they’ll even look great with a tailored trouser, trust!

White trainers

Ankle boots

Winter, spring, summer or fall an ankle boot is great year-round. They can give you a bohemian look to your outfit, depending on style and how they’re paired, for example, with a floaty, summer dress they’re just dreamy.

Put them with a pair of black jeans and vest/crop top and you’re a rock chick! It can make you look both smart and casual at the same time, what’s not to love.

Ankle boots


Your summer go-to! Perfect for the beach, perfect for drinks in town, yes to celebrating a birthday, but we don’t recommend wearing them to a wedding. Most wedges are too informal for such an occasion. Unless they’re really dressy, then you may get away with it.

Wedge sandals for summer


For those days you don’t want to wear heels but need something a little dressier than trainers, you got to have a pair of pumps on hand. We’d recommend a pair in black or navy to go with any outfit but we just can’t say no to a pastel/neutral pink or grey which helps to break up block colour or too much black.

Must have shoes for women

Court shoes

You’ll likely own a variety of court shoes; some suitable for work, some more for partying. If you’re trying to minimalise the number of shoes you own, opt for a neutral or navy colour so you can wear them with pretty much everything. Perfect shoe style for weddings and slaying at work, if you’re want to feel a little powerful, you can’t go wrong in a court.

Court Shoes


Mules are a great shoe that sits in between a ballet/pump and court. You can get them flat, or with a kitten heel if you’d prefer but these are definitely a dressier shoe. Summer is the perfect time to don a pair.



You’ll find sandals in all different kinds of varieties. You can have flat, casual ones ideal for summer, something a little more supportive that you can wear day in and out, and then you can get some skyscraper ones that are super dressed up. We’d recommend owning a flat pair and something with a heel. With the flats you can throw these in your suitcase for holidays, they look good at the beach or out shopping. As for heels, we swoon for sandals with a little strap around the ankles and toes; great for a night out or at a wedding.


We hope this miniature guide is helpful for any outfit dilemma. Though we’re curious to know: how many pairs of shoes do you own?
