You know the dilemma: You've dedicated an area of your bedroom to staging your suitcase... and managed to narrow it down to approximately your entire shoe wardrobe. But that's simply not happening.
While you may need a pair of flats and a pair of sandals for your next trip, you really do only need one pair of heels to keep you dressed up while you stay streamlined through the airport and hotel lobbies. Don't believe us? Check out these hard-working and versatile options and experiment with packing discipline!
1. Christian Louboutin
We should just go ahead and get this wardrobe staple out of the way first thing. This classic Louboutin black pump comes in many different shape variations, but they're all high, they're all black with iconic red soles — and you'll be hard pressed to find a handier heel.
2. Jimmy Choo
These Jimmy Choos are made with a beige patent leather. The point keeps them classy, but the color and height keep them usable for myriad outfits and occasions. With long-lasting quality craftsmanship, you'll be packing these in your suitcase for a wonderfully long time.
3. J. Jill
Unless your travels will include some super fancy black tie event, this chunky stacked heel sandal from J.Jill is versatile, cozy, earthy, and will match just about anything you need it to. It’s available in both cognac and black, so choose the one that works best for your palette.
4. Stuart Weitzman
For a sandal that's a bit more upscale, the Stuart Weitzman strappy sandal is bound to impress. This stiletto can easily move with you throughout the day's outfits and throughout all occasions on your trip. You won't necessarily don this one poolside, but it'll be a great companion for everything from business meetings to the wine bar.
5. Via Spiga
These grey suede pumps available at Bloomingdale’s also come in fuschia... but we really recommend the grey if you’re looking for something that will go with everything in your suitcase. At just over three inches high, these kicks are certainly sane for packing.
6. Beyond Skin
For a cream-colored heel that will be a neutral addition to any outfit, check out the Eloise Cream Wedge Court from Beyond Skin. Purchase these shoes without guilt: This shoe comes in a patent vegan leather. And because it’s a mid-height wedge, it’ll be a lot more comfortable for your travels than a stiletto.
7. Nine West
For a heel worth hanging onto, check out the Margot heel from Nine West. A quintessential mid-heel, the Margot is classic, comfy, and efficient. It comes in a lot of colors and prints, but our favorites for these purposes are the white, black, and gold metallic.
