Every girl wants to wear the best dress, shoes, and accessories for prom. While most attention is focused on choosing the best dress, it is also important to pick a pair of shoes that complement the dress. Your shoes can make or break your prom outfit.
A lot of girls prefer to wear sky-high heels with their prom dress while others choose flats. Regardless of your style, the right shoes should not clash with your dress. However, making the right choice can be challenging. The tips below can help you navigate matching shoes with some of the best prom dress styles:
Black Prom Dress
When you try to match a black prom dress, you may think only of black shoes as the perfect match for the outfit. However, there are actually more options to handle this, depending on your preference. For instance, do you want to feel bold? If so, you can choose to wear yellow or pink heels to match your solid black dress. To achieve a more subtle look, match your dress with white or silver heels. Also, black heels that have silver beading will help you complete your outfit.
Printed Prom Dress
Choosing the best pair of shoes for printed dresses is not easy. These dresses can have bold prints and bright colors. Also, they may have different colors that make it harder to determine the color that the shoes must bring out. To match a printed prom dress that has a lot of colors, look for a color that stands out the most in the dress and select shoes in this shade. Think about nude high heels for flashy dresses. Choose to wear simple shoes since a printed prom dress is already bold. A lot of online prom dress stores also offer matching shoes for their prom dresses.
Cocktail Prom Dress
Although a lot of girls choose to wear full-length gowns for prom, many prefer cocktail dresses for a sexier style. But, cocktail dresses are less intricate and plainer than ball gowns so they have to be matched with bolder shoes. But, if you prefer to wear a more daring cocktail dress, pair it with solid black shoes or shoes in a complementary color to tone down the look.
Metallic Prom Dress
While being fashionable, metallic dresses can be hard to match with shoes. A gold dress should be matched with subdued shoes in a gold tone. Also, black shoes can work for a gold prom dress that has a black accent in the material. Toned down silver heels can match with a silver dress.
