The Ultimate Style Guide to Women’s Shoes

Marilyn Monroe rightly said, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” We, at eNibbana, believe ‘shoes make her a woman,’ a confident and strong one. Shoes have the power to uplift your style and attitude to bring out your emotionally and physically strong personality. 

Sometimes it becomes difficult to find the right pair of shoes to go with an ensemble that resonates with your style. A perfect shoe should not only be trendy and fashionable but also comfortable and work in coordination with your style and outfit. Your perfect shoe should be an extended version of your confident personality that compliments your outfit the right way. 

This blog is the ultimate style guide to women’s shoes. Read on to learn about different shoe styles and how to style them to look as fashionable and confident as ever. 

Different Shoe Styles for Women and How to Style Them

It’s quite common to get confused between different styles of footwear as they differ from each other with just the heel type, or a zip or lace fastening. You would find different shoe styles in a single category. For example, boots come in different styles, from ankle boots or combat boots to cowboy boots or chelsea boots. You might find yourself thinking they all look the same, but there are actual differences that make them a perfect option for different ensembles. Let us see different shoe styles and the different ways to style them. But, before that, here are some fashion tips to look as confident as fashionable in every outfit. 

  • Always keep your comfort above everything. If you put trends over comfort and happiness, you will never get the confidence to slay in any outfit. It's the comfort and your happiness that gives you the right confidence to become a perfect version of yourself. 
  • Style as per the occasion. You do not want to look over-styled on a simple dinner date with friends. 
  • Do not always go for the most fashionable shoe you lay your eyes on. Sometimes, a subtle shoe looks the most elegant with your outfit for the day. Or, sometimes you should only let your shoe do the talking. 

With that, here are different styles of shoes for women and the different ways to style them.

  • Sandals.

     

Sandals are one of the most comfortable and easy-to-wear and carry shoes. The right pair carries comfort with trends and style and works with most outfits. From wedges and chunky slip-on sandals to gladiators and t-strap sandals, there are many different sandal styles. Some might look good with a maxi dress, others might work well with shorts or a short skirt. Here are some sandals with different outfits you can pair them with.
