You may know all about wardrobe staples like black trousers, button-up shirts, camisoles and sweaters, but do you know the essentials of a decent shoe closet? Despite what you may think, your trusty pair of go-to shoes don't always cut it for every occasion. Here are a few of the shoes every man and woman should have, all of which can be purchased for a bargain with a DesignerShoes.com promotion code.
Women 1. Ballet flats. These shoes add a touch of class to any outfit, and they're a lot more comfortable than heels. Throw them on when you don't want to risk breaking an ankle. A neutral hue is good for work, while bright colors can be fun for walking around town. 2. Boots. Sleek leather boots, whether black or brown, can take your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary in a matter of seconds. Look for one with a not-too-high heel so you can wear them everywhere. 3. Nude pumps. The fashion world has been buzzing about the leg-lengthening effects of nude heels, and the bonus is that they go with literally any outfit. (Okay, maybe not your gym clothes or sweatsuit, but just about everything else.) 4. Canvas sneakers. These are great for when you want to be comfortable while still looking chic. Pick up a white, grey or black pair to wear with anything. 5. Black pumps. Good for the office or a night on the town, these shoes are sexy yet basic. Find a pair that's comfortable and you're all set for any situation. A Shoes.com promotion code could get you 20 percent off the pair of your choice. 6. Dressy sandals. Whether you go for a platform wedge or a metallic sandal, you should have a classy pair to rock for summer events. They're good for day or night. 7. Flat leather sandals. These shoes are more chic than flip-flops while being just as comfortable - perfect for the warm weather. 8. Althetic shoes. You know exercise is good for you, so make sure a pair of sneakers are in your closet for workouts.
Men 1. Dressy sneakers. We're not talking about the kind you throw on day after day - you know, the ones with the holes and the lingering smell. You need a clean sneaker to wear when you want to look casual yet still fashionable. 2. Flip flops. It's just uncomfortable to wear sneakers at the beach, plus flip flops are comfortable for lounging in the summer. 3. A running shoe. These are good for working out in, but you shouldn't wear them when you're not exercising! 4. A pair of wing tips. These are the ultimate dress shoes, good for a meeting at the office, a wedding or even somewhere you just want to look extra classy. Use a Planet Shoes promotion code to save on yours. 5. Boots. You can find boots in varieties ranging from dressy motorcycle boots to heavy-duty work boots. Get a pair to fit your lifestyle - they're versatile, sturdy and fashionable. 6. Canvas sneakers. Comfortable yet not completely unrefined, canvas shoes are breathable and useful. Pick a pair to match your wardrobe.
As long as you feel like you have a shoe for every occasion, you should have a well-stocked arsenal of footwear at your disposal. You'll never have to be caught wearing a questionable pair again, and you don't have to break the bank getting the essentials with an OnlineShoes.com promotion code.
