When selecting items to start off with, you might find that choosing the right shoes is the hardest part. It’s easy to mix and match tops and bottoms, but selecting footgear is a whole other story. There’s a lot to consider, like the weather, upcoming plans and usability, not to mention staying true to your personal style.
But don’t fret, this starter kit is a great place to start! Add these five staples to your collection, and go from there.
Give any outfit a casual, cool vibe with a pair of white sneaks. These kicks provide the perfect balance of chic and comfort, and will easily become your go-to shoe. No matter the season, these bad boys will always be in style.
PS – These are a great, stress-free shoe to pack when traveling as well — your feet will thank you.
This list would not be complete without the notorious black bootie. This super versatile shoe gives any outfit a dressier and edgier feel — whether it’s work to play. These are a staple, especially during the colder months.
Having a pair of dressy flats or heels is always a good call. These might not be the pair of shoes you wear on the daily, but for the times you have to dress professionally (like an interview or work event) you’ll be glad you have them handy.
Don’t forget workout shoes! You’re going to want to have a comfortable pair of trainers nearby for when you hit the gym.
And let’s not forget the most practical: rain boots. Getting caught in the rain without the right footwear is the worst! Avoid ruining shoes down the road by including a quality pair of rain boots. You may even prevent a few sick days while you’re at it!
