A classic pump never goes out of style, and if you work in an office, you just can't go wrong with a simple streamlined pointed-toe shoe - from bold zigzag prints by Nicholas Kirkwood to animal-inspired Zebra, or a basic (but stylish!) two-tone black and white pump. The pumps shown below can easily transition from day to night - paired with basic black, or the new celebrity favourite, a fabulous white dress.
Don't forget flats and sandals in black and white on the weekend - in addition to being comfortable, casual esapdrilles in monochrome will add an instant style update to your jeans and tee. Soludos offers a new stripe flat that will suit every budget ($43 from Shopbop) and the strappy sandal is a lot more interesting in a bold contrast. And speaking of practical, I know many readers will be thrilled to hear the kitten heel has made a welcome return as a comfortable and elegant option! Check out the assortment of black and white shoes below.
