Black and white has been on the runways and probably in your closets for a few seasons now, but why not let your feet have some of the fun? We have tracked down 12 of our favorite black and white shoes, that also just happen to be under $200. This high contrast trend has everything a girl could ask for. These pieces are chiÄ‡, cool, simple, and, most importantly, wearable!
What should you look for? Stick with shapes that you already know are flattering and comfortable. If you know you wear a lot of flats to work, check out the ballet flats. If you have a black and white dress that you are looking to accessories, you might want to check out a heel or a cropped boot.
What can you wear with black and white shoes? The great thing about these hues is that they go with just about anything. They are as versatile as a black shoe, but they have more edge and style.
What can’t you wear with black and white shoes? I generally stay away from mixing black and white with a golden yellow, it can look a little bumble bee, but that isn’t a hard fast rule. If you have a lighter shade, or if the shoes are the only black and white, it could work.
Can you mix patterns? Why yes you can! Striped shoes with polka dot tights? Yes, please. Speckled boots with a color blocked dress? Can’t wait to see it! Check out this article on mixing black and white patterns, to see more ideas.
Where can you find black and white shoes? A lot of stores are carrying this trend. You will be able to find them at your local department store, mall, and online. To make it easier, below are 12 of my favorite black and white shoes that you can buy online. All are under $200.
The Ankle Boots 1 of 12
Can I tell you how obsessed I am with these booties? I especially love the gold details and the height of crop.
With A Poof 2 of 12
What could make a pair of dainty ballet flats even more charming? A puffy poof of prettiness!
The Ankle Strap Flat 3 of 12
Everyone is loving ankle straps right now. I especially love the texture on the white section. You can wear these with tights now, and without tights as spring blossoms.
The Platform 4 of 12
For all you shorties out there, yes Brooke, I'm talking to you. These are perfect! Sky high and such a statement. When looking for comfortable platforms, it'a all about how severe the angle is, not about how high the shoe is. These look like they would be surprisingly comfy.
The Flat Booties 5 of 12
Here's a little slice of houndstooth heaven. These little guys look like so much fun, and there's almost no chance of you tripping and falling in these. That's always a plus.
The Slip-Ons 6 of 12
The slip-on trend is booming still and for good reason, everyone likes to be comfy. But this pair doesn't let style sit on the side lines. Bam. In your face fun.
Dr. Martens 7 of 12
The '90s are back in full effect. Dr. Martens were a staple in the grunge era, and they have returned. Here's a stunning pair of white ones with black laces, and I have also seen some rad black and white patterned ones. These can work with a pair of black skinnies, or even a dress.
The Heel 8 of 12
These black and white scribbled heels have the most personality of all the choices listed here. These are for the person who is ready to make a statement.
Keds 9 of 12
I have been a fan of the Kate Spade and Keds collaboration. These shoes are almost too cute, but I can take it.
The Ballet Flat 10 of 12
A simple and conservative pick, this Michael Kors ballet flat would be perfect to wear for work, but is stylish enough to leave on for dinner.
The Loafer 11 of 12
It's a little bit country, it's a little bit rock and roll, and in the best possible way. Black and white at it's boyish best.
The Pump 12 of 12
I left my favorite for last. These simple, yet stunning Madewell pumps are my new staples. Forget the black heels! These can go with everything.
