Just like a little black dress, every girl needs a pair of really good black pumps. If you can only buy one staple item, splurge on black pumps! They seriously go with every outfit! Dress up jeans, spice up a skirt or add sass to a structured dress with a pair of sexy black pumps. I personally love platform pumps (not ridiculously high platforms, but like 1 inch) which allongate the leg. Choose leather, not patent but regular matte leather. Once you have your perfect black pump then go crazy and opt for a patent pair or strappy sandle. Black pumps will be your go for any work day! And believe me, comfort is a plus!
