Don’t Clash, Match: Finding the Perfect Shoes for Your Prom Dress
It’s prom season, and that means it is time to try and pick the perfect outfit. Every girl wants to have the best dress, shoes, and accessories for this special occasion. Shoes, in particular, can make or break a girl’s outfit.
Many girls vie for sky-high heels to wear with their gowns while others choose flats or kitten heels. Whatever the style, finding the right shoes that do not clash with the night’s dress can pose a challenge. Fortunately, these tips will help any girl navigate matching shoes with the most common prom dress styles.
Finding the right shoes to wear with print dresses can be challenging. Many of the prints in prom dresses are bold with bright colors. Print dresses usually also contain many different colors making it difficult to determine what color the prom shoes should bring out.
To perfectly match a print dress with many colors, find the color that stands out in the dress the most and choose shoes in that shade. Nude high heels also work very well against bright and flashy dresses. Remember to go for simple shoes since the dress is the bold fashion piece.
When trying to match a black prom dress, many girls think only black shoes will match with the outfit. We think this is something of a misconception. In reality, there’s more than one way to handle this.
If you are feeling bold, bright pink, red or yellow heels will match great with a solid black dress. For a more subtle look, pair the dress with silver or white heels. Black heels with silver beading will also help to dress up any prom dress. Sparkly high heels can also be matched with black dresses to make the outfit stand out.
Metallic dresses can be a tricky prom outfit to match since many shoes clash with the material. Gold and silver dresses while being very fashionable can be quite a difficult style to find shoes for that do not take away from the bold style.
To match gold dresses, choose a subdued shoe in a gold tone in order to complement the dress. Black shoes can also work if the gold dresses have a black accent in the material. With certain dresses, red heels can also create a daring prom look.
Silver dresses also look perfectly matched with a toned down silver heel. For a classy and fashionable look, silver heels with diamond-like beading or sparkles make a great prom outfit.
While many girls opt to wear full-length gowns for their prom, many choose to wear cocktail dresses for a sexier prom style. Since these dresses tend to be plainer and less intricate than ball gowns, most of these looks require a bolder shoe. If the dress is on the more daring side, however, tone the look down with heels in a complementary color or solid black.
Most girls choose an A-line style prom dress if they want to feel like a princess for the night. These dresses tend to have long, wide skirts that bring to mind Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
For A-line dresses with a solid color, flashy high heels will help complete the look and make it stand out. For dresses with a lot of jewels or sparkles, a complementary color with a simple design will ensure the shoes do not clash with the dress.
Have fun at prom!
