5 Essential Pairs of Shoes A Woman Will Ever Need
  • As much as we love shopping for shoes, the secret to building the perfect wardrobe lies in sticking to the basics. In fact, we think it's completely possible for a fashion girl to own only the bare essentials and still exude a unique aesthetic. Style is all about the "how" than the "what" at the end of the day.

    Below are the essential pairs of footwear you need in your life:

    1. White sneakers

    Adidas Originals Womens Originals Stan Smith Shoes, BGC


    This is the ultimate dressing down shoe. It's comfortable and it goes with everything, so this is basically a no-brainer. What's not to like?

    2. High Heels

    Alaïa Studded suede sandals, Net-a-porter

    Every girl needs a pair of sky high heels that can instantly give her an extra boost of confidence. For black tie events, formal parties, or your best friend's wedding, this will always come in handy. (And FYI, the higher the arch, the sexier the heel.)

    3. Comfy Heels

    Mango Paris Leather Pumps, P3,995, Greenbelt 5

    Block heels can be your forever go-to pair for this. Again, opt for something in a neutral color, like black, white or beige, that you can wear with just about anything.

    4. Loafers

    Zara Tasselled Loafers, P1,795, Greenbelt 5


    This pair will keep your everyday outfits from looking too casual by lending a polished touch. It's for those days when you're feeling too lazy to wear heels but still want to channel your inner #girlboss.

    5. Workout Shoes

    Nike Flyknit Racer, BGC

    Now this depends on the type of workout you do. The most basic pair you can store in your closet is a running shoe. Stick with a timeless silhouette in a color you adore to make sure it lasts you years.
