From Alexander Wang to Bebe to Steve Madden, designers know how fashionable a good pair of black shoes can be. Whether you’re jetting off to the office or out for a fun evening, black shoes will always work with your ensemble. Here are some styling tips to get you started.
If you’re headed to the office, a pair of pointy-toe black shoes with a small kitten heel will work great. Wear them with a slimming pencil skirt and jewel-toned blouse for a buttoned-up look, or try them with trousers and a fun sweater. You can also shop for flat black shoes with either of these outfits. Check out brands like Jeffrey Campbell and Gucci for ideas.
Black shoes are your best friend when it comes to styling evening wear. While your daytime shoes may be flat or have a low heel, the sky is the limit come evening. Michael Kors has black patent leather peep-toe heels that would be a knockout with everything from a flirty swing dress to a jumpsuit, and Nicholas Kirkwood crafts beautiful shoe boots with two-tone patterns and flashy embellishments that will steal the show.
