Three Ways to Style Pumps

For several months now, I’ve been scouring the internet for a very specific pair of black pumps. Convinced they would be my shoe of the summer, I searched every retailer I could think of in the hope that one of them would have exactly what I had in mind. Then, when I was out shopping about two weeks ago, I found them*.

These strappy ankle heels have been my favorite thing in my closet since I bought them. I’ve had such a fun time finding different ways to style them, so I figured I might as well share a few here on the blog. Pumps are great for dressy occasions, but that doesn’t mean they can’t also work for laid-back ones. Here is how I like to style them on a day-to-day basis:

A classic look that perfectly teeters on the boundary between dressy and casual, pumps with jeans is an excellent way to make use of those plain black heels that sit in the back of your closet, waiting to be worn. The shoes make the outfit here, elevating a basic top and a pair of ripped jeans into something much more stylish and put together. As a finishing touch, I added this long pendant necklace. Simple and sleek, the look somewhat reminded me of a modern, more casual version of Audrey Hepburn’s black dress in “Breakfast At Tiffany’s.”

For the second look, I wanted to do something more traditional. I decided to pair the shoes with hibiscus flower mini skirt, a black tank top, and a denim jacket. As far as I am concerned, this skirt and these shoes were meant to be. They both give off a light, whimsical, carefree summer feeling. Like my previous outfit, the heels make all the difference here. If I were to go with a basic black pump, it would have watered down the skirt’s playfulness. Instead, these shoes maximize it.

For the last outfit, I wanted to use the heels to elevate a look I wear on a regular basis. This skort and plain tee combo is a warm weather staple for me. I usually pair it with sneakers, but I chose to give the pumps a shot, and I am thrilled with the results. I am a sucker for shorts and heels together. It’s such a fun way to spruce up a simple summer outfit.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
