Exclusive: Kristin Cavallari on Spring's Shoe Essentials

Our favorite ex-TV villan turned adorable mother is back in the spotlight as she prepares to launch her second collection with LA-based brand Chinese Laundry this fall. And we sat down with the new designer to get her shoe must-haves.

The former MTV star, perhaps inspired by her then frenemy and our March cover star Lauren Conrad, debuted her shoe line earlier this year and we have to say, the 26-year-old's line is actually kind of amazing—full of coloful stilettos and adorable flats—all under $150!

While this Laguna Beach alumn has "way too many shoes too count," we thought we'd ask her just how many shoes every woman actually needs in her closet. Hint: It's only five! Check out her picks below, and get ready for her awesome new collection this fall!

A Colorful Heel

"I love this pastel pump in my line with a great pair of white skinny jeans and a white blazer for spring," Kristin says.

A Great Bootie

"You can wear booties with everything from a pair of jeans to a cute skirt," Kristin says. "I try to not buy shoes that are so crazy I'll only wear once."




Nude Pumps

Not sure if a heel is right for you? Test a pair out with your everyday staple, like a pair of jeans. "I always wear a great pair of jeans when shoe shopping to see how they look," Kristin says.

A Wedge

Comfort is key. And a wedge is the perfect shoe for that. "You definetly want to make sure your shoes are comfortable," Kristin says.


Black Pumps

"A black pump can literally be worn with anything," Kristin says.
