The Secret to Pulling Off Black Strappy Heels

If you are going for a glammed up look, there’s nothing like black strappy heels to make your outfit complete. They are sexy and glamourous and, there’s not much they won’t go with.

However, because the shoes themselves make such a statement, one wrong move and you can go too far over the top. At the same time, if you go for an outfit that is too casual, that won’t work either.

If you have black strappy shoes in your closet just waiting to be worn, here is some advice for putting together that perfect look.

Great Outfits for Black Strappy Heels

Jeans: Jeans can be a great look for strappy heels. A tight pair of skinny jeans will give you a terrific elongated look that is slimming for any figure.

When it comes to the glam factor, the shoes are nicely balanced by the more casual yet stunningly sexy jeans. Balance it out by adding a top that has a bit of wow like a sequined spaghetti tank or even an elegant blouse.

Dresses: A dress will always go with a great pair of high heels. Your black strappy heels will look terrific with a dress that is short and tight, long and flowy or any combination of the two. Maxi dresses, mini dresses, sheath dresses and shift dresses are just some examples of styles you can wear with your sexy heels.

Jumpsuit: A jumpsuit can work well with black strappy heels, especially if the pants come in at the bottom or roll up so that they are at least a few inches above the ankle. This will bring focus to the shoes without hiding them or overpowering them. Because jumpsuit legs tend to be fuller, they complement the sleek look of the sexy heels perfectly.

Skirt and Top: You can recreate any dress look in a skirt and blouse ensemble and add strappy heels for a sexy and sophisticated look. Almost any type of skirt will look great with your heels including minis, pleated skirts, broomstick skirts, maxi skirts and more. Finish it off with a spaghetti strap tank, blouse or cami to take your outfit to the next level.

Additional Style Notes: When it comes to color, don’t be afraid to be adventurous. But be warned that, because you are wearing black heels, you will want to balance it out by wearing darker, bolder colors on top or a print that features black. If your outfit is pastel or very light in color, you may be better off going with a lighter color heel.

Also, black strappy heels are pretty versatile and will go with a wide variety of outfits but it is best to choose one that fully shows off your shoes, especially if you are wearing heels with a lot of straps. Hemlines that dangle over the shoes will make for a sloppy line.

Finally, it can be difficult to wear shorts with black strappy heels. You may be able to get away with the look if you are wearing a pair of dress shorts, but a Daisy Duke short can be too casual for the shoes. As a rule, try to counter the sexy look of the shoes by wearing at least one item of clothing that is a bit more modest.

Think of the Event

Even though black strappy shoes are pretty versatile when it comes to the outfits you can wear them with, they tend to have a dressier look that might not be right for the grocery store, or the office. On the other hand, they will be perfect for clubs and special events like parties and weddings. For that reason, your black strappy heels might not be the most worn shoes in your closet, but that will make it feel all the more special every time you put them on.

Black strappy heels are a great addition to every wardrobe. Plan your outfit carefully when you wear them to your next special event. Then look forward to how great they will make you look and how sexy they will make you feel.
