Every occasion warrants a particular type of shoe, and here to help us better maneuver our shoe choices is fashion blogger, Vanessa Ogibowski. In this episode, Vanessa shares six essential shoe types that every woman should have in their closet. 

Ballet Flats

Flats are must-have no matter what your style is. Flats are great for a variety of occasions, including class, work, errands, or even meeting girlfriends for lunch. In addition to being comfortable, flats are an upgrade to wearing runners, making them as stylish as they are practical.

Slip Ons

Easy wear is key when it comes to slip on runners. Much like flats, slip ons can be worn for a variety of occasions, including school or to do errands. If you suffer from foot or back pain, slip ons provide better cushion and support than flats do, making them the better choice if you know you’re going to be on your feet for a while. 

Nude Shoes

Whether you wear them a lot or not, every girl needs at least one pair of heels. Nude heels are the ideal attribute to any girl’s wardrobe for obvious reasons, but did you know, that nude heels can actually extend the visual length of the leg? Ipso facto, nude heels can actually make your legs look longer. Opt for shoes with a platform as well as a heel, which will allow for better arch support. Peep toes are fun twist on a classic pump, and are the perfect pick for summer occasion-wear.


If you’re not quite comfortable teetering around in a pair of stilettos, opt for wedges. Wedges offer height, plus stability, and they can also be dressed down as well as up. 


Contrary to common belief, booties can be worn in the spring and summer, as well as the winter and fall. For spring and summer, opt for a bootie with cutouts and thinner heels, and in summer, you can opt for more coverage and a thicker, block heel. This versatile shoe choice is comfortable and practical without sacrificing style.
