“I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I’m a big shoe girl”, said Amy Adams.  Shoes can make or spoil your look.

It is important to buy the right pair of shoes which will compliment your dress. Also it is important to buy a pair which will go with most of the clothes in your wardrobe. We tell you the must haves in your wardrobe

■ Ballet flats: Nude, black, bright colour or print, ballet flats in any hue look great with almost everything. You can wear them with bright floral skirts or dresses. You can also team them with high waist trousers or skinny jeans. You can team dark coloured flats with a black pencil skirt or a well tailored fitted formal dress

■ Black pumps: You can never go wrong with the classic black pumps. Open toe or pointed black pumps look great with the little black dress, jumpsuit, a pair of shorts or a wine coloured cocktail dress.

■ Nude coloured pumps: Nude pumps go with almost everything and are great to break the monotony. You can wear them with a dark coloured dress. They also go well with printed dresses and pants. Nude peep toes look great if you are going for colour blocking.

■ Sneakers: Sneakers are your best friends. They are comfortable and look smart with a pair of jeans and T-shirts. They are the best option on days you need to run errands.

■ Boots: Boots can be worn on any occasion. You can wear them with skinny jeans and a pullover or you can team them with a short denim skirt and leggings. Flat ankle length boots can be worn with a pair of black shorts and net leggings.

■ Metallic sandals: Gold or silver. These strapy beauties can jazz up any attire. Invest in a pair and team them with all the dull dreary dresses you have in your wardrobe. Gold sequined flats or pumps can be worn with a plain dress. These go well with a dark coloured attire.
