We call these the updated basics.

Level up your shoe selection, honey. Though you may be the type to only keep your kicks closet basic, even the foundations need an upgrade every so often! Here's our chic checklist to get you started:

1. Minimalist stiletto sandals

These flatter everyone, no kidding. A skin-tone shade is extra sexy: Allude to the nude and seduce in sultry, strappy, slim-to-a-fault stilts that'll lend you legs for days, weeks, months...

2. Statement white sneakers

White sneakers aren't even a question, which is why we're betting you already have approximately 20 pairs casually hangin' out on your shelf right this second. Deviate and make a statement for a change with an iteration that's louder than loud. So much fun!

3. Black patent-leather pumps

You probably know these are absolute classics, but let us reiterate! Choose sleek patent over other finishes like suede or matte—the subtle added shine (and relative resistance to stains) allows you to walk them into any situation, from boring boardroom to big, glitzy birthday bash.

4. Flat mules

Slip-ons are almost a sin in their easy, fuss-free decadence. The luxury of traipsing around in what are pretty much glorified house slippers? Incomparable. Make the most of it by choosing something that's just the right blend of embellished and essential.

5. Loafers

Ideally buttery soft and comfier than your bed, loafers are nice investments to start off with if you're just beginning to collect designer shoes! Snag a pair in ageless python and watch yourself wear 'em nonstop for the next two decades.

6. Go-to party shoes

Hunt for tireless conversation starters, whether flat or sky-high! Parties can either be a drag or a ball, so come prepared to be the fête with talking pieces that'll draw every eye to you once you make your grand entrance. Have a moment.

7. Boots

Don't be intimidated just yet! You won't believe how much confidence leverage a flattering boot provides once it grows on you. Street-smart combat versions make any OOTD a ton tougher (in a good way!).

8. Summer slides

A posh alternative to rubber flip-flops, consider a go-with-anything summer slide that's cool enough to take back to the city once your seaside vacay comes to a close.

9. Red heels

You may not be a color-wearing kinda gal, but on fancy nights you need that punchy pop, a skyscraping scarlet stiletto will remain dependable and chic even 100 years from now. Take our word for itladies in red never expire.
