Just call me the shoe enabler. If you need someone to talk you into the necessity, the almost mandatory-ness of getting 10 new shoes for summer, I’m that friend. That friend with the shoes. The friend who can justify any purchase.
But I’m also your fashion friend. And hopefully your trusted virtual stylist. And my goal isn’t just to help you acquire more shoes, but to help you choose the most versatile ones. The chicest, most modern, most wearable, most versatile, and even the most comfortable shoes for your spring/summer wardrobe.
Buy them now, early in the season, so you can enjoy them longer.
Did I mention that I love shoes?
That’s why I’m so excited to be working with a new shoe brand, NewBella, in today’s video. NewBella offers trendy, comfortable, and affordable shoes (most of them well under $100) in a vast array of styles and sizes. You can use code: NBNFQ18 for 18% off.
But before I get into the 10 styles of shoes you need, I’m going to tell you the 5 colors that I think every woman needs.
As always, I have a catalog for all of these shoes and it’s right here.

Flat are trendy right now, which is great because most of them never stopped wearing them anyway. Whether you’re looking for the newly trendy ballet flat, a loafer, or even a closed toe slide, there’s an option here for everyone.
The Statement Shoe
These are in no particular order, but sometimes it’s fun to have a shoe in an interesting color, shape, or with interesting texture/detail to add pop to a simple outfit.
The Flat Sandal
A classic flat sandal is a summertime essential. The latest styles are so chic and offer something for every budget and style.
Heeled Mule or Slide
Comfortable, versatile, and super-easy to slip on and off all day, mules and slides can be either casual or dressy, depending on the style and how you wear them.
The espadrille is casual but elevated, with a timeless European style. They also come in all colors and heel heights as well as a variety of styles, from those with ties that wrap around the leg to ankle straps, peep toes to sandals to closed toe.
The Dress Pump or Heel
A dress shoe is a must for special occasions and any time you want to elevate an outfit. I love the unexpected touch they add to a casual outfit.
The Dress Sandal
A dress sandal, especially in a metallic, is an absolute essential. Buy the right pair and you’ll have something to wear to every event as well as on more casual occasions.
The Flat Slide
The flat slide is essentially a backless sandal, and should be considered your new flip flop. This style is so much more elegant and modern and looks equally stylish with dressy things as well as casual styles.
The Fashion Sneaker
This sneaker is your new comfort shoe. It’s stylish and modern and works equally well with casual dresses as it does with jeans and shorts.
The Athletic Sneaker
Whether you’re walking a lot or working out, an athletic sneaker is a must for most women. HyperArch Motion reached out to me and sent me a pair to try, and I have to say they may be the most comfortable things I’ve ever put on my feet. Here are some of the features:
- 45-Day Wearer Trial
- Soft air cushion heel
- Rememory foam arch insole
- Stretch knit upper
- Seamless wide-toe box
- Arch motion support
- Elastic pull tab
- Sizes 5-12 plus half sizes
