Matching your shoes with your dresses. We do this every day.

Easy, Right?

So you’ve gifted yourself your dream pairs of shoes, now you’re faced with a dilemma; how to match your shoes with the dress?

If you have ever wondered what shoes go with what sort of outfits; we’re here to offer some ideas and guides to help get you started.

The wrong shoes can ruin even your best evening dress, most times it’s not easy to coordinate an outfit.

It can be particularly brainstorming when trying to find the right footwear to go with a specific dress especially when choices are few.


Matching your dresses with your shoes

Points to Note when considering your choice of shoe to match with an outfit

1. Consider the colour: Choose colours that compliment your dress instead of those that compete with your clothes.

2. Wear simple plain shoes (heels/flats) when wearing a dress with a bright bold colour or pattern.

3. Go for neutral or Nude shoes(heels/flats) if you have a sparkling evening top or dress.

4. Avoid wearing solid bold colour matching. Don’t wear a solid colour from head to toe.

If you have a green blouse and a green skirt, avoid wearing a greenshoe unless you feel comfier in them. Fashion police can’t charge you with anything.

5. Consider different close shades carefully.

6. Select standard colours for professional settings wear colours such as brown, black, grey leather shoes at the office or formal settings.
