Perfect black heels

A pair of black heels are “a-must” for every closet! Black, being a neutral color, will go with most outfits. A perfect pair of black heels is one of the simplest ways to make almost any outfit dressy.

Black heels come in various styles. I have tried them all. Pumps, platforms, cones, peep-toe, stiletto, slingback, wedge, and chunky (hmmnn I actually hated these). Here is a quick glossary of different types of heels.


Over the years, I have come to realize  that not all black heels are appropriate for all outfits. Here are a few of my favorite black heels and their best uses:

Zara Black Pumps (sold out here, similar here,here)
Vera Wang Platforms (sold out here, similar here, here)
Nine West Peep-toe (available here, similar here, here)

Since my current style consists of mostly pencil skirts, wide-leg pants and dresses, the black pumps are my shoes of preference. What black heels are you most attracted to and why? Sound off in the comment section below.

Here are a few pictures of how I styled my Zara pumps.

    Love the post, as usual. Right now i’m most attracted to the pump and maryjane platform shoes of which I’ve been looking for the perfect pair for two months now. I love the pump because it goes with my style and is the perfect way to dress up jeans and the maryjane platform shoe i love because well I just have a thing for it now.

  2. love both outfits!! :-)

  3. You’re giving them in that Peter Pilotto outfit! Xo.

    I absolutely love black pointy pumps…..they go with almost everything and make my feet appear small and dainty. The only problem is finding black pumps in my size……..a whooping size 12!
