From super high stilettos to block heels and mules, heels are the feminime footwear staple associated with glamour - there’s no doubt about it.

And with there being a whole range of different types available, you can be sure there’s a heel type out there for you: one that will make you look good and feel confident.

Plus, with there being different types, it also means there’s a style out there that will complement any outfit so you can make sure you’re always putting your best foot forward.

From heels to wear to everyday moments to more lavish affairs, here are the 7 types of heels every woman should have in her wardrobe.

1. Stiletto 

Stiletto’s are a classic high heel that can make your legs look longer, and sexier!

Generally, stiletto’s heel height can be anywhere between 1 to 10 inches high and the heel itself is pointy and thin.

A pair of stiletto heels are perfect to finish off glamorous looks or to make formal workwear feel more feminine.

In fact, even “non-girly” women can rock a pair of stilettos - try an all black outfit with a leather jacket and black patent leather stiletto heels: your silhouette will thank you.

2. Kitten Heel

There was once a time where kitten heels were not seen as chic. But now, you’d be silly not to own a pair!

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident wearing high heels, or you feel you’ll look too tall in high heels, then kitten heels are the ones for you.

Typically, the kitten heel is quite thin but it is always below three inches, which makes them perfect for city-style vibes and for women who are always on the-go.

In terms of style, if you want a more relaxed feel for a casual lunch then pair them with jeans and a tshirt. Or for something a bit more professional, kitten heels are great with trouser suits.

3. Block Heel

Not only are block heels super stylish, but they’re extremely comfortable too.

The reason being, is the thicker the block heel is, the better your bodyweight is distributed which means it’s a lot easier to walk - even for a long time!

You can wear them to work or weekend parties, but one thing’s for sure - it’s a trend that has been around for years and is here to stay.

Clothing wise, block heels go with anything: from jeans to dresses, skirts to trousers, there’s a block heel style for every hour.

4. Slingbacks

Slingbacks are sophisticated.

These are the heels that feature an ankle strap that only cross around the back and sides of the ankle, and a low vamp that oozes class.

Regardless of if you wear them with polished office wear or loungewear, the slingback heels can instantly refine any outfit. 

5. Mules

Mules have open backs, which make them a summer must-have no matter the heel height.

With mid to sky high heel options, there are even plenty of silhouettes to choose from like closed-toe uppers to straps, meaning they’re incredibly versatile and can be styled with any outfit.

For a retro 90s look, throw on a pair of mules with high-waisted trousers and loose fitted jacket. Or, wear them with tailored trousers to bring a classic touch - with so much versatility you can’t go wrong.

6. Wedges

When you think of comfortable shoes, the first thing you think of probably isn’t heels.

But as far as heels go, wedges are the winners in this category. With a wedge sole, body weight is distributed evenly which makes walking a whole lot easier!

Plus, they look good. Especially with denim shorts or a cute, printed floral dress in the summer.

7. Pumps

Pumps are timeless. An all time classic and every girl should have at least one pair.

Not only are they perfect for the office, but they can look effortless with a pair of jeans and a nice top for casual engagements.

Because they come in lots of styles, from peep toe to pointed toe, ankle straps or buckles, owning a pair of pumps will work for all occasions.

The Bottom Line

Hopefully, this blog has helped you figure out the perfect style for you, so you can turn up to any moment looking glamorous as ever! Whether you need to head to a fancy occasion, nip to the shops or go to a wedding - there’s a pair of heels for everyone.
