After going through the process of downsizing your closet, then comes the fun part: building it back up! I’m excited to start sharing some of my “Closet Essentials” list with you, starting off with the super classic, tried-and-true black pump. I personally like mine single soled (i.e. no platform), pointy, and between 3-4 inches, as I think those features make for the most flattering and chic pump. I’d also recommend buying the best quality you can afford: it’s worth it to invest in great shoes, especially when it comes to a pair that you’ll be able to wear with absolutely everything… a true wardrobe workhorse, so to speak.
