Don’t get us wrong: We love us a pair of totally-out-there statement shoes, but once we’re done configuring our many layers, the last thing we want to do is decide on a pair of heels. The best no-brainer solution? A classic black pump, of course.
Arguably the second most hardworking item in our closets (sorry, but the blazer takes first place), black pumps are not only staple for every season, but they’re decidedly the best day-to-night accessory out there. And, because your go-to heels probably took a beating during holiday party season, we rounded up nine iterations of the classic shoe. So, whether you’re looking for a timeless pair of pointy-toe pumps to invest in for the long-haul or a pair of on-trend sandals to last through the spring, click through for our favorite black heels.
