SELECTING THE PERFECT BLACK HEEL
2018 has proven itself to be the year of making a statement. Your voice is loud and heard… in those rocking True Fashionista black Gucci stilettos! Black heels do indeed make a declaration, and there are soooo many to choose from! You might have your ace-in-the-hole outfits for every situation and outing, but to really crush it (We know bad pun couldn’t help it) you need just the right black heels. Pair ‘em with your favorite LBD or comfy clothes and they just. Plain. Work. Heels are super sexy, confidence inspiring, flattering, instill courage and are the text book definition for the idea of pain with a purpose.
In case you had any doubt as to how, and who, you should wear those thangs with, here are a few ideas…
Let’s start with shoe shape. Wikihow is our go-to, with the following guidelines:
- Consider a pair of strappy, high-heeledsandals for yourlittle black dressor similar evening wear.
- Selecta pair of low-heeledsandals for a versatile, feminine look.
- Wear walking sandals with casual outfits.
- Save flip-flops for short-term casual settings.
You could try a pair of Christian Louboutin or Manolo Blahnik stilettos to accent both your evening wear and classy jeans. Another pairing for your jeans is a set of True Fashionista chunky heeled Jeffrey Campbell booties. Stuart Weitzman’s line also includes the chunk heel, as well as stilettos, flats, and classy black boots for virtually any outfit. Fashiontasty.com argues that black pumps are must-haves in every lady’s closet and are versatile with most every outfit as well. Glossy black heels show off an adorable Dolce & Gabbana print dress during the day, where ankle-strap peep-toe heels complete a sleek look for evening events. Shorter stiletto-type kitten-heels go well with casual outfits as well. Need something to pair with your Helmut Lang mini skirt and stylish tee? Try Alexander McQueen’s glossy black pointed-toe pumpsto top off your outfit.
Since we’re discussing who to wear with, um, whom, it doesn’t hurt to look at what the celebrities are into at the moment. After all, we’re always watching, and yes, A-list stars just love their heels! Jessica Simpson once threatened to give birth in her YSL pumps, and Victoria Beckham has claimed that she simply just can’t concentrate in flats. To that end, as part of her ready-to-wear collection, Ms. Beckham has her own line of sassy black heels, including her Pin Pump, which we feel is more of a stiletto given that crazy True Fashionista metal heel.
Blake Lively once compared the “magical” feeling she gets from watching Disney’s animated Cinderella to how she feels while wearing Christian Louboutin stilettos. He was so flattered by her compliment that he designed a pair of (mostly) black heels after her. The “Blake” stiletto has actually been around for a while now, but does a pair of red-soled Louboutins ever really go out of style? Exactly.
And when it comes to your work day, Sarah Jessica Parker has got your back, or rather your stiletto-encased soles. ET online highlights the latest from her SJP line, including Sarah’s signature Fawn 100mm pumps. This classy four-inch pump could very well be that work stiletto you’ve been searching for. Ms. Parker’s so proud of this heel, in fact, she even made a little video to show it off.
Most designers include several versions of the black heel in their lines each season. With just a few guidelines to remember, you’ll be showing up and showing off your perfect black heels everywhere, and in no time!
