Anna, I don't have time!
Take me straight to the shopping & style guidelines!

Womens fashion shoes seem to be the biggest shopping treats and not least obsession among us females and it has been like that for as long as we can remember. And we even buy the same shoe style in every color, every occasion, every activity - several times a month.

When it comes to shoes, I'm sure you agree with me on how addictive they are. There’s just something about those artful sculptures that make your heart skip a beat and your wallet itch.

Our feet don't have hips, thighs and other lumps and bumps that make us feel we're fat. That make womens shoes our best friends :-) And with the super vast variety of styles, colors, textures and shapes - you're bound to bring home at least 2-3 new pair!

This is your guide to buying and wearing fashionable shoes – from sexy womens high heels, flats, sneakers to sandals. Just slip on a pair and you've got a whole new image!

Now let's look at the topics and shoe styles I'm covering:

Womens Ankle Boots

Womens ankle boots are stylish and look chic worn with a dress and tights, and of course skinny and cigarette jeans!

If you have thick ankles/and or short legs I recommend selecting an boot style that sits low on your legs to maximize their length and make them appear leaner. For example, boot shaft that extends just below your ankle knuckles.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Shoes

If you want to get the most out of your money you first need to secure womens fashion shoes in simple and timeless styles.

Examples of shoe styles that never go out of style are high heels pumps, ballerina flats, tennis sneakers and simple leather flat sandals.

And you can never go wrong with a pair of leather knee riding boots for fall :-)

(Don’t fret, this is just the minimum list ;) )

A tip is to secure the wardrobe shoe essentials and build on them based on your daily activities (work, casual evenings, traveling, parties, etc.) in simple designs and versatile neutrals such as black, brown and white/cream.

In this way, you'll be able to wear them with the rest of your wardrobe without worrying about if they match, and you'll always have something to wear for every occasion.
