Comfort and Style? Best Shoes for College Girls

Whether or not you are a shoe fashionista, there are five styles of shoes that every college girl must have in her closet. If you don’t have them, you may look book smart but will also look like a fish out of its bowl. That’s a conundrum no self-respecting college girl wants to find herself facing. Here’s a list of five styles of shoes you need to keep you on your fashion toes.

Career Heels

You may have a job that only requires tennis shoes or sneakers, but there will be occasions when you need a pair of career heels. Throughout your college years, you’ll be required to complete practicums and internships or interview for awards or scholarships. For these occasions, you will need to be properly attired. When selecting a career heeled shoe, look for an all-purpose black pump with no more than a three-inch heel. If you watch the sales, you can probably find a good brand for a price of $30. You want to make sure you can walk comfortably without losing your balance and tumbling to the ground. You’ve been there and done that in those stilt shoes.

Stepping-Out Pumps

To look your best and get into the partying mode, every girl needs a pair of these fun-loving shoes. Choose from a rainbow of colors and dazzling textures and pump up the height of the heel. You’re in college now and there are plenty of parties you’ll be invited to, including beer-bonging, fraternity, sorority and themed night parties. If you’re on a shoe-string budget, you can find a pair for $20. If not, the skies the limit and go for a designer brand.

Tall Boots

Every college girl needs a pair of kick-ass tall boots to flaunt those lovely legs. These boots are great for stepping out on the town in chilly weather, hiking in style to class or going out to dinner with a hot date. The options are endless with a pair of sexy tall boots. From suede to leather, these boots come in a wide array of textures and colors. Since you’re probably watching your pennies, it’s a good idea to get a pair of tall boots in neutral colors, such as black, brown or grey. These shades are the most versatile and work well with many different colors.

Ballet Flats

Let’s face it; you’re not a college girl without several pairs of ballet flats. These legendary shoes are known as the bad boys on campus. Ballet flats can be worn daily and anywhere, including to class and to the mall. You can also dress these bad boys up with a pair of slick tights or a dress for an evening look that won’t leave you with aching feet. These are so popular and can be found in a rainbow of colors and with whimsical embellishments.

Comfy Almost-Slippers

Almost-slippers are the trendy version of the traditional slipper but have more style. These soft bunnies give your feet warmth, comfort and style while lounging around the dorm or apartment. Almost-slippers can be worn while doing laundry or studying at the library. With all that fluff and fuzz, you’re bound to get noticed.
