Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.
As we approach tights weather, I thought it might be fun to round up some strappy pumps (see also our roundup of t-strap pumps). Although boots and booties are much more acceptable to wear with tights than they used to be (just for kicks take a look at our 2010 poll on peep-toe booties), the most conservative option is still, I think, pumps or flats, whether with straps or without. So without further ado… readers, what are your favorite shoes to wear with tights? Have you made any killer purchases recently (or classics that are still available) that go the distance in terms of comfort and style?
