There is no accessory that has the power to take away from the outfit itself other than a pair of shoes, specifically stilettos. Yes, probably the most important part of any outfit is not the outfit itself but the shoes you pair it up with.

Shoes can become a focal point of your dress and sometimes statement shoes can be the whole inspiration for the look as well. There are so many different and amazing shoe options right now but high heels are still the leading shoe style. Although you may find them in numerous styles and further sub-categories like high heel mules by Kurt Krieger, slingback heels by Valentino, Princess heels by Amina Muaadi and classic high heels by Christian Loubton, there are still a few must-haves that you need in your wardrobe no matter what.

Heels can make every outfit look like it's off the ramp. The reason is the added confidence and style it gives to your gait. Just a few inches off the ground and you already feel on top of the world, ready to take it head on! You can pair high heels with something as casual as a tank top and high waist jeans and still look put together enough to go to a meeting.

It's been instilled in us that diamonds are a woman's best friend but trust me, the OG Marilyn Monroe said that the woman’s best friend is heels and I tend to agree with her 100%. Diamonds are small, expensive, not that noticeable and certainly can be faked but a pair of high heels give you instant confidence, transform your look and make heads-turn.

As much as we want to have every pair of heels out there, it's not possible but so i have made it easy for you and narrowed down the list to just 5 types of heels that will do for every occasion!

5 Type of High Heels Every Shoe Collection Should Contain

1. High Heel Mules

If you want to strike the perfect balance between comfort, style and confidence then high heel mules should be in your shoe collection. This shoe covers most part of the foot giving it extra support and coverage. Mules have an opened back but they can have an open or closed mouth.

High heel mules never go out of style due to their amazing offerings. They also pair well with so many outfits ranging from casual to semi-formals to formals to red carpet. Mules are also perfect for cold weather when you don’t want to trap yourself in boots or sneakers.

2. Slingbacks

Another must-have heels you should own and cherish in your collection are slingbacks. These types of heels are highly sophisticated and elegant. If you want a pair of shoes that goes well with any dress and everytime you wear it, it just adds to your look so slingbacks are essential.

Mostly the slingbacks have a pointed toe that gives it a very refined look but it also feels super comfortable and secure at your feet. You can walk in them with confidence and class without aching feet as your feet have proper support from the back as well as sides of the shoe. 

3. Platform heels

Platform heels are evergreen and will remain so as they have the ability to add extra inches to your height without the suffering and pain which stilettos are known for. The platform heels have a thick sole that levels out the height and the feet don't have to bear the extreme curve.

I prefer platform heels in big high heels as they are the most comfortable to wear and you also get to wear 5-7 inches of heel. I would agree that platform heels aren’t your everyday shoe but it sure is perfect for a gown or full length dresses.

4. Block Heels

Block heels have a broader width and a wider base, this means the heel has more surface area on the ground giving it stability and security when standing, unlike the heels stilettos have.

Block heels are the perfect everyday heel especially if you have a shorter height. You can wear them on the go with casual outfits or you can pair them with semi-formal outfits as well, depending on your shoe style but this heel must occupy a spot in your collection.

5. Fancy and Quirky Heels

It is not about playing safe all the time. As I told earlier as well, shoes are the perfect accessory to make a powerful fashion statement. Fancy decorative heels with rhinestones and metallic flowers look super cool and sexy.

Different types of heels like the YSL heels or quirky style heels also look super cool and show that you are a charmer rather than a timid person.


Your shoes can talk so much about you without you making any special effort. Your overall look and the way you style your outfit can heavily rely on your shoe choices so make sure you have these 5 kinds of heels in your collection to always have an impact!
