Every Gal Needs: A nude heal in a classic shape. We like a d'orsay, slingback, peep toe or a basic pump. Nude goes with everything and if you get a classic shape, you will have these forever.
Fit: Get a pair with a heal as high as you are comfortable with (Don't be over ambitious ladies. We don't want you toppling over). Try to get the color nude as close to your skin tone as possible. Keep straps to a minimum, especially when it comes to around your ankle. Ankle straps will chop up your leg and the idea is to elongate your legs, which is always a good thing.
Favs: Honestly this is an area that we need to heed our own advice in: neither of us has a plain, nude pump! We are on the hunt and will let you know when we find one that we personally recommend. Til then, here are some to get you going.
