We love the fact that we are now in an era of fashion wherein wearing sneakers, with everything, is not only acceptable but also a statement. Be it a laid-back day look with a frilly dress and a pair of platform sneakers or a day at work with leather sneakers and a chic maxi skirt. Not only do they look cool, they are oh so comfortable.
Okay, so while we are usually rallying to build our cool sneaker collection, you know what our one true love is? A killer pair of heels! And to be honest, what’s not to love. They are the perfect pick-me-up to any outfit, make us feel on top of the world, and saving the best for last: they make our legs look bomb.
There is no such thing as too many shoes, and to that tune we created a robust list of the top 10 heels that should be laying at the foot of your closet.
Given that it is wedding season all-year round, a pair of sequin-laden shoes ought to be a part of your kit. They are versatile and just the right kind of drama to accompany your well thought out lehengas and sarees. A classic pair in black and gold are enough to get the job done.
Those short hemlines need a worthy companion, and only a pair of gladiator heels rise to the occasion. They are high on the glam factor, no matter how tall or short your legs are. Pair them with dresses, skirts, and shorts which are a few inches above the knee and don’t forget to splash on some nail paint on your toes.
Need a pair of heels which will let you stand for hours and at the same time make your calf muscles pop? Platforms heels are the answer. That little support at the front accompanied with an equally high heel, provide comfort and style. Plus nothing beats people exclaiming, “How are you spending so many hours in heels, that’s amazing!” You can just smile and click your platform heels together, like it’s no big deal.
For days when you’re feeling extremely low-key in terms of putting together an outfit and all you want to do is throw on a pair of mom jeans and a half tucked-in shirt, you need a pair of bright heels. No other accessory can take your look from laid-back to chic quicker than a pair of colorful heels. Add colors like a firetruck red, sunshine yellow, and azure blue to your collection.
When it comes to must-have shoes, pointed toe heels will never go out of style. You need these babies in your shoe closet at all points of time in life and for every occasion. Be it an important engagement at work or a date-night. If you don’t own one yet, go for a metallic silver pair and then build your collection from there.
If you’re on Pinterest, you have probably seen dress sandals there a few thousand times. And that is not for nothing. Thin strappy sandals are absolute statement makers. They are high and tangle around your feet with easy sexiness. We are currently crushing on a pair in rose gold, and we recommended wearing them to anywhere from a formal occasion to a dress-up night with your favorite partner-in-crime.
Heels with dainty details like flowers, crystals, pearls, tassels, and diamantes are an absolute guilty pleasure. They are beautiful to look at and one almost feels guilty wearing them out, but hey! every pair of heels deserve their day in the sun. Make sure your collection has a few super flirty heels with pretty details. Especially for days when you’re feeling extra femme fatale.
Another trend that we cannot get enough of are metallic heels. And well, you can’t blame us, and we won’t blame you when you stock up on not one but a few pairs of metallic babies. Silver metallics are an absolute must-have but also look out for metallic heels in collectible colors like green and mauve. These heels are perfect for a night-out and weddings.
Although an unconventional choice usually, but a pair of heels with a checkered pattern are chic without trying to be. Imagine yourself in your favorite blue jeans, a creamy lace button down top, and a pair of block heels with a check pattern. Effortlessly chic right? Yes, yes it is. Buy it, strut it, and thank us later.
If you’re someone who is all about the finer details and not over the top, then the perfect heels for your collection are those with just a touch of spunk. Look out for heels with subtle shimmer detail. Go for darker colors like a deep navy or black to give you the most wear ability and high usage.
All this talk about heels, looks like we already have our plans set for the weekend. Time to stock up on a few new pairs of heels and create occasions to wear them.
