This pair of polished pumps will never let you down. These are a classic finish to everything, from the office to your evenings out. You can wear these shoes to any occasion and get that instantly elevated look.

Block heels are just as stylish as the classic pumps. But they also have the added advantage of being more practical, supportive, and walkable than the pointier heels. Apart from the style benefits, block heels also provide additional stability and support for your feet.

3. Casual sneakers

Gym sneakers are meant for the gym, but a pair of simple comfortable sneakers are a wardrobe basic worth investing in. They’ll look a whole lot cuter with jeans than your bulky trainers will. You could go with soft-soled lace-up shoes or basic vans.

4. Dress shoes

If you’re into the whole androgynous vibe, smart brogues or loafers should be staple shoes for you. These are a more formal and classy alternative to sneakers with a preppy-cool twist. You can dress this up with structured office wear or dress it down with a nice pair of jeans.

5. Flat sandals

These are a more put-together alternative to slides and flip-flops. Sandals are perfect when you’re trying to rock Ankara outfits without looking too serious. Make sure you go for a pair with details you’ll be happy to slip into daily. Start with basic neutral sandals, then pick something with a fun colour or great studded finish.

6. Ballet flats

Ballet flats are a simple solution to feeling polished and pulled together while on the go. They’re as ladylike as they are casual, meaning we can wear them with pretty pleated skirts, shift dresses, or even cutoffs. These shoes get a bonus for being super comfy too!

7. Statement heels

This is the pair of shoes you wear when you want to finish everybody. As the name implies, statement heels are the shoes that attract a lot of attention and are the centerpiece of your entire outfit.

Go for one with bright colours or an unusual texture and watch all the eyes turn in your direction.
