What shoes to pair with a cocktail dress?

Q: i’m going to a wedding in july, bought the dress its terani style 35056C short to the knee cocktail dress in solid black with gold boatneck appliqued bodice all around neckline detail. What color of shoe and style would best fit that type of dress? thanks GIGI

A: Dear Gigi!
I do love a wedding! You don’t tell us where the wedding will be? Beach? NYC hotel? But just going with your description, I’m feeling a real Greek vibe. And what better way to show off that Greek look that some strappy gold sandals.

My prom is coming in May. Need perfect shoe.

Q: Dear Shoe Lady,

My prom is coming up in May, and I’m having trouble finding the perfect shoe. The color of my dress is aqua blue. Do you have any advice on what direction to take? Thank you!

A: Dear Amanda,

Depending on what details your dress has, metallic can be a striking choice. They provide a shiny accent to your outfit without overpowering it. I have included some pictures of possible options.


makes it perfect for dancing. It also comes in silver.

Pairing colors is also a good option in making your outfit pop. I would try to avoid tone on tone (i.e. blue dress and blue shoes) ensembles, because they tend to be a little too much like a costume. Mixing can be a great choice once you find a shoe color that complements your dress.
