Black may seem basic but it's actually a fantastic color that every woman should have in her wardrobe. Especially, when it comes to the little black dress -- LBD. The shade is just as chic as it is slimming. When fall and winter roll around, adding a pair of black tights keeps you cozy and cute. Now all you've got to do is figure out the shoes...


Since you're already working an elegant black, keep the trend up by slipping on a pair of black shoes. Black pumps look perfectly refined. If you want your look to be a little more fun, try an open-toe shoe, a bootie or even a strappy sandal to finish off your look.


If you don't want to do all over black, you don't have to. Try metallic shoes to add a little shimmer to your look. Since you're working with black, any metallic shade will work; so whether you're wearing silver, gold or any version of the two shades, you'll look fantastic.


Sometimes you've just gotta go big or go home. If you're feeling like a fashion daredevil, slip on a pair of brightly colored shoes. Neon shades can be oodles of fun and are a sure way to make a statement. Bright pinks, oranges and greens are the perfect way to spice up your look. If you want to tie them into your outfit, try a neon shoe that has some black detailing.


Add a cool printed shoe on bottom for another fun twist on your look. Since you're working with an all black look, make sure your print works with your dress. Your shoe should either have some black in it or be composed of darker shades. Leopard print shoes are a great option. They're right on trend and work perfectly with your black frock and tights.
