You’ve gotten the invite. You’ve rounded up an adorable date. You finally found the perfect dress. But wait… what about the shoes?

As you well know, shoes can make or break an otherwise perfect outfit.  That’s why there are a few pair of shoes that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe. Usually I am preaching to you about not spending ridiculous amounts of money on clothing, but in this case, I feel quite the other way.  Shoes are an investment.  If you have a few good pairs of classic shoes, you can navigate your way safely through any fashion crisis.  There are basically five different styles of shoes that a stylish woman needs in her life.
