Q. What basic color shoes should be in a woman's wardrobe? Someone told me white, black and red but this seems out there.
-No Clue Shoes
A. White as a requisite in your shoe wardrobe is definitely “out there.” Very few people wear white shoes, and when they do, it’s usually a sandal or flip flop. Word of advice: don’t ask that same person about clothing choices!
It’s hard to determine what’s best for your wardrobe since your lifestyle and career can influence your needs and choices, but if you were to keep the colors and styles to a bare minimum, black and chocolate brown should cover you for most occasions and seasons. For the past few years, metallics have become essential neutrals, adding spark to everything from a cocktail dress to jeans and helping to alleviate the desire for “matching colors” from head to toe. A bronze heel can replace your brown pump when the shade is wrong with your outfit, while silver and gold work well with a multitude of colors. Finally, adding color to your shoe wardrobe, whether it's a navy espadrille, a pink ballet flat or a green pointy-toe slingback can give new life to any wardrobe or polish even the most basic jeans and t-shirt look.
