I’m going to start out by ranking the four pairs of footwear every woman should have:
• Ballerina flat—forever kicky, they can work for evening or day and always look chic.
• Metallic strappy sandals—gold or silver, they look great with mostly everything, from jeans to a gown, and can usually work around the clock.
• Plain knee-high boot—a winter must, and not just because they look hot. There’s nothing particularly glam about standing around in wet feet or, worse, damaged shoes.
• Great black pump—low-cut on the upper and as high as you can handle the heel. A great pair can take you from the boardroom to the bedroom!
