Once you have your prom dress picked out, the next step it to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. Here’s a quick guide to picking out the
1. Choose the right hue. The color of your dress will determine the shade of the shoes you buy. If you’re wearing a colored dress, for example, metallic or nude shoes will be your best bet, since it will be hard to match a shoe to the color of your dress exactly, and black can look harsh against bright colors or pastels. If you’re wearing a white, black, or neutral dress, you can’t go wrong with metallic or black shoes. Or, add a pop of color to your outfit with a colorful pair.
2. Make sure they’re comfortable. As cute as a pair of shoes might be, if you can’t walk in them, you shouldn’t buy them. Remember, you’ll be wearing them for 5 or 6 hours, and much of the time, you’ll be dancing! Prom night is about having fun and making memories, and it’s better to err on the side of comfort and have a blast, than go for six-inch pumps and have to sit at your table while your friends dance.
3. Bring them to your alterations. If you’re getting your dress altered, buy your shoes before you head to the seamstress. This way, you can try them on during your appointment, to make sure your dress is the right length when you have your shoes on.
