With the rise of social media influencers (they seem to be everywhere!) it can be very tempting to buy the latest pair of shoes that are trending online.
And, you’ll probably find you’re convincing yourself that you will wear them all the time - don’t worry, we all do it!
Then before you know it, they’re out of style and who wants to be seen in shoes that are not even on trend.
As a result, when it comes to trying to find smart casual shoes to complete your outfit, you may find all you have are glitzy or feathery heels that are simply not appropriate to wear to a business lunch, for example.
With that in mind, here are 5 types of smart casual shoes every woman should own that you can wear season after season and will complement most outfits in your wardrobe.
Loafers offer great versatility as they can be both smart and casual.
Not to mention they’re a great option as they offer great comfort to your feet.
What’s great is that loafers are available in a wide range of materials, from patent leather to suede, and in a whole array of colours.
For example, if you don’t want to draw too much attention to your shoes, then you wouldn’t wear a pair of shiny black loafers with an outfit that is neutral - softer colours like brown or nude would create a more subtle look.
In regards to outfits, loafers can be worn with both smartwear and jeans or leggings - which makes them the perfect smart casual shoe option.
2. White Trainers
White trainers have been on trend for a while now.
Whether they’re paired with a jeans and top or a red carpet outfit, white trainers look good with almost anything.
So, it’s always a good idea to have a pair of fresh white trainers in your wardrobe, ready to compliment your outfit and give a laid-back impression.
At the same time, white trainers can balance out a louder outfit so you don’t have to worry about looking too “out-there”.
Overall, white trainers are the ultimate smart casual shoe every woman should own - even the Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted wearing white trainers, with navy trousers and a stripy top - so if Kate can do it, then so can you!
3. Ankle Strap Sandals
Sandals, whether flat or heels, that have an ankle strap can make any outfit look sleeker, taking the casual up that smart level.
In fact, ankle strap sandals are a timeless pair that look great on everyone and work especially well for events during the summer when your ankle is exposed.
Outfit wise, whether worn with a pencil skirt and shirt for a business meeting or with jeans and a blouse for dinner - these are a staple style and a must have for every woman’s wardrobe.
4. Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots are an all time classic and are available in a wide variety of toe shapes and heel heights.
But the most distinguishable feature are its elastic side panels and tab at the back of the boot.
Regardless of if you’re wearing a dress or jeans, the Chelsea boot is a timeless staple that every woman should own.
5. Ballet Flats
Ballet flats are almost every woman’s go-to choice and for good reason too - they look feminine, are versatile and offer the most comfort.
No matter what the occasion, whether you’re wearing casual or smart wear, ballet flats for sure will look cute no matter what!
For example, you could get a classic black pair to wear for work or a brighter colour with embellishments when heading to dinner and drinks.
Always remember to not feel pressure from the latest fashion trends or you’ll end up wasting money on a pair of shoes you might only wear once.
If you keep these 5 styles in your wardrobe, you can be sure you have the perfect smart casual shoes to complement any outfit without making any fashion faux pas!
