Best Bet: Steve Madden Black Suede Sandal

You can have all the “It” shoes in the world, but sometimes a girl just needs a simple black heel. Maybe your head-to-ankle look is sartorially aggressive and you need a minimalistic shoe to take the edge off. Maybe you have a date and you’d like the other person to think, She’s low-maintenance, just by looking at your feet. Or maybe you have one of those dresses that’s awesome, but unflattering. It hits you right where it shouldn’t, but you’re determined to wear it because it’s a Thursday and you’re alive. Pair that dress with these shoes and add days to your legs.
