5 Pairs of Black Heels That Will Last You For Life
Must have items!
There seem to be two kinds of women in this world, those who are good at wearing heels and those of us who well, aren’t. With ourselves being firmly in the latter camp, this has often got us wondering, how do other women make wearing heels look so easy? And though we’d be happy to just stick to our Adidas, there are some occasions where only a pair of heels will do. Just like a white shirt, Levi jeans and a good blazer, a pair of black high heels, is one of those classic items that should belong in every grown-up wardrobe.
The art of wearing stilettos though all seems to lie in finding a comfy pair. Meaning, the high-street just won’t cut it. If you’re looking for a pair of comfy stilettos and are willing to invest, designers like Louboutin, Jimmy Choo or Dior are your go-to for durability and style. So if you’re looking to take the plunge, we’ve put together a guide to the best pairs of black heels to buy. All investment styles that will never date, shop our favourites below.
Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 patent-leather pumps
There’s probably no pair of heels quite as iconic as a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. With their famous red soles, the brand’s pumps are all about that quintessential grown-up glamour only stilettos can bestow. The Pigalle 100 in glossy patent-leather is one of the brand’s most enduring styles and for good reason too. They can be worn to elevate just about any outfit.
Valentino Garavani Rockstud leather pumps
Edgy, yet luxe, Garavani’s Rockstud pumps are an emblem of the house’s enduring glamour. A celebrity and blogger favourite, these heels are embellished with the designer’s signature studs in gold-toned metal. Wear them to lend a chic yet rebellious edge to work or off-duty staples.
immy Choo Bing 100 Mules
Jimmy Choo is a brand that was made for the red carpet and has been loved by everyone from Princess Diana to Queen B. A statement style that will elevate any evening look, this pair of mule heels are adorned with a crystal-embellished strap that elegantly frames your ankle. Let them do the talking with simple separates or a silk slip dress.
Dior J'adior Mules
With their logo ribbons and 90s-style kitten heel, Dior’s Ja’dior heels became a cult style almost overnight. What we love most about these Instagram-famous heels though is that they’re low-key and easy to wear but are by no means boring. Wear them with everything from off-duty denim to floral midi dresses.
Mui Mui Ballet Flats
If none of the above has converted you than luckily, there are still some chic flat options that can be worn to oomph up any outfit, just like these Mui Mui flats. An iconic style, with their checkered wrap-around ribbons and buckle straps, these shoes are an ultra-cool take on the French original.
