When looking for a pair of casual, everyday shoes, it's not enough that it feels comfortable on the feet (though it is always important). The ones in your collection should be versatile, too, and functional in a way that it could transform your outfits instead of being a passive piece of footwear.
Ahead, we list down some must-have styles that'll polish your daily looks:
1. Flat mules
Mules literally toe the fine line between a casual and a dressy shoe, and that's exactly why it's a must-have in everyone's closet. It's a more put-together, easy-to-wear alternative to open-toed sandals that you can wear to work or on a casual stroll.

Some might say that loafers are a formal shoe, but like mules, it's a comfortable and useful everyday staple that you can pair with jeans, tailored bottoms, or even shorts. It basically works like a blazer, elevating any outfit it's added to in an instant.

3. White Sneakers
We aren't exaggerating when we say that white sneakers go with everything. Whether you're in full sportswear or a dress, you can always count on it to complete your look. If you aren't a fan of chunky sneakers, opt for either a strapless pair or one in a slim, sleek shape for a more elegant vibe.

4. Flat Sandals
With flat sandals in your closet, you never have to miss the comfort of your house slippers. It helps to have different styles in your rotation, ranging from a beachy silhouette like chunky sandals or a dressier type like a slim slip-on with a dainty strap.

5. Low-Heeled Shoes
Having a little bit of height in your casual footwear never hurts, since it will make any outfit combo look extra polished. In fact, it won't have to hurt at all if you opt for comfortable, low-heeled stilts like block-heeled shoes and kitten heels!
