5 Shoes Every Woman Should Own, According to Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle’s shoe wardrobe is, in a word, enviable. (The things we’d do for a pair of these Gianvito Rossis…) But if you really study what she wears, you find that she often sticks to just a few different silhouettes. So here, without further ado, are the five pairs of shoes every woman needs in her closet, according to the Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan loves a high heel, and for good reason, They’re unbelievably flattering, and literally/figuratively elevate any outfit. If four- or five-inch pumps are a bit too painful, consider this: A lower pair with a pointed toe and a slim heel will make the heel appear higher than it really is.
Borrow from the boys and look cool as hell. Slippers are a great way to instantly dress up any outfit without sacrificing comfort. They come in a ton of colors, materials and varying levels of embellishment, but you kinda can’t go wrong with a classic black suede pair like Markle’s (which are from Birdies, by the way).
The duchess doesn’t get to dress down very often (seriously—she wore heels on a sports field), but when she does, she has major style. Wear your white sneaks with everything from boyfriend jeans and slim-cut trousers to midi skirts and shirtdresses—just make sure they’re spotless.
Flat Leather Sandals
The epitome of a summer staple, the flat leather sandal is comfortable enough to wear (and walk in and dance in) for long periods of time, and looks infinitely more put-together than a pair of flip-flops. Take a page out of Meg’s playbook and pair them with a breezy sundress, or try ‘em with a pair of shorts or boyfriend jeans.
Pointy-toe pumps and smoking slippers will serve you well in the fall, spring and summer. But come wintertime, swap them out for tall boots. Regardless of how high the heel is, they look sleek underneath a dress, skirt or wide-leg trousers, or pulled over a pair of slim-fitting pants.
