These Prada pumps are the most versatile shoes I’ve bought all year. Without being basic or boring, the black and white style coordinates with essentially everything in my wardrobe from fitted Victoria Beckham sheaths to colorful slacks. The classic cap toe adds a polished touch of old world elegance. If you’re looking for something a little vampier, trade the cap toe in for slim black straps on the brand’s equally covetable criss cross pumps (at Neiman Marcus for $690). Spring’s monochrome madness might be a trend, but the fact of the matter is that black and white never goes out of style. Available at Bergdorf Goodman for $750.
Pair with: Jason Wu’s bright eel Karlie box clutch (at Jason Wu for $1,630) will add a few stripes of color to your outfit while still playing with the shoe’s bi-color combination.
