We recently highlighted the basic clothing items Los Angeles–based influencer Melissa Meyers and her 23-year-old daughter Rachel Meyers both wear to create chic ensembles. And while age clearly has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, we found it interesting to note the crossover between the pieces they both covet. Next, we thought we'd tap the duo to uncover the specific shoe styles they are both turning to at the moment.

While all different in their own right, the silhouettes in question are similar in that they're all incredibly versatile. Each style can be dressed up with elevated pieces or down with jeans and tees. To highlight further, the Meyers women shared a range of visual inspiration imagery, along with info on why they both rely on these five shoe silhouettes.
