As a girl, it is way too easy to go overboard with buying too many shoes. All too often, I buy a pair that looks fabulous on display, come home, and find that I have nothing to wear them with. Shoes can make or break any outfit, so I have complied a list of shoes that every girl needs in her wardrobe. If you have these necessary pairs in your closet, you will be able to put you best foot forward in any situation.

Spice up an outfit with a pair of bright colored flats or one with a funky design. These Topshop shoes would be perfect with a white cutout dress, and mint is one of the hottest colors for this season!

Fall means one thing in my mind… boots. Your perfect pair of boots are a neutral color, structured, and comfortable… not the beat up pair of UGGS you’ve had since junior year of high school. Frye boots are the epitome of a perfect pair of boots. They are structured, great quality, and come in a range of cute neutral colors. Try these boots with leggings and an oversized sweater for a comfy yet pulled together look.

For those long treks across campus, comfy sandals are essential. They are as easy to slip on and walk in as flip flops are, but make any outfit look incredibly more put together. Try sandals with a maxi skirt and loose tank for a more bohemian look. Or if you want a preppy look try khakis and a polo. Regardless of the look you are going for, these Sam Edelman sandals from Nordstrom are perfect for any outfit.

From avoiding any contact with the questionable dorm shower floor to dashing out of your room during those lovely 3 a.m. fire drills, flip flops are a college girl’s best friend. They aren’t the best choice for a night out on the town, but for lounging around with your friends, flip flops are great. Old Navy has one of the largest selection of flip flops and they are all so cheap you can get one in every color.
