Bombshell guide to which shoes to wear with different dress styles and colours
Everyone should know the rules of matching their dress colours with their shoes...
...So I have created this guide for all you Bombshells, so you don’t ever have to worry about hunting for that perfect look again. You need to consider what event or occasion you are going to as this will impact your overall outfit and will change the style of what you want to wear. A lot of people focus more on the dress they wear and are oblivious to the impact of shoes, so it could all end up looking completely wrong and uncoordinated. Follow our expert tips so you can experience the bombshell magic with everything you wear!
Here are my top tips on how to match dress colours with shoes:
What colour dress to wear with gold shoes?
Gold shoes are known as the statement makers! With the rich, bold, elegant colour, you don’t want to wear a dress that will ruin that style. Gold shoes look great with dresses that are block colours that still hold the richness you are trying to create. Blue, red, burgundy, are all great options to go for!
Class & sophistication...check!
Emerald green silk makes for a striking and elegant silhouette that would go beautifully with gold shoes. This outfit would be perfect for Christmas, or summertime with the richness shining through with the emerald green and the gold creating a well-balanced look. This Emerald Green Silk Confident 3/4 Sleeve Dress is your secret weapon to make you look and feel amazing! It is such a versatile dress that can be worn for any occasion and you will still look magnificent!
What colour shoes go best with a red dress
A perfect choice of shoe for a red dress is the same for green as they are complementary colours. Imagine your gorgeous Bright Red Velvet Bombshell 3/4 Sleeve 'Stretch Luxe' Dress paired with some gold shoes. A dream outfit!
But, you don’t have to go as bold on the shoe if you want your red dress to make the statement for you. You could pair this soft and stunning dress with some nude or beige shoes to tone down the drama and is a true favourite of mine when wearing a look like this!
What colour goes well with leopard print shoes
Perfect for a winter wedding
Our gorgeous Navy Moss Crepe Bombshell 3/4 Sleeve 'Confident' Dress would look utterly fabulous with some leopard print shoes which would make the perfect outfit for a race when paired with a nice hat, a perfect choice for Ascot!
If you want to keep things a little simpler, then grabbing your staple black dress from the wardrobe is all you need! This Black Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress is what many Bombshells reach for when wearing leopard print shoes because of how gorgeous the final look is! I designed this to make it extremely comfortable and versatile without distancing it away from the glamour and drama. You can wear this dress on any occasion and when paired with leopard print shoes you will be unstoppable and ready for your event!
Our Dark Academia Roses Bombshell ¾ Sleeve Confident Dress is a perfect example of a multicoloured fabric dress. All of the gorgeous colours in this piece are stunning, but which colour should you use to match your shoes with? Well, a good tip is to take the most dominant colour and ignore the rest! It is easier to isolate one colour and use this as your inspiration for your shoes instead of worrying about all of the others!
In this dress, wearing some shoes that are a gorgeous red shade to match the stunning roses would be BEAUTIFUL. A deep red would go well with this look, or even some nice black pumps or heels. Whichever colour you feel is the most dominant then you should go with that to influence your shoes.
Dressing with metallic colours
A bit of shine and a bit of shimmer is exactly what metallic colours can give you! Perfect for them evening do’s or even the holiday season! A lot of people usually struggle with what to wear with a metallic coloured fabric but there is no need to be! The best tip is to view the metallic colour as a neutral shade.
Metallics do not have to intimidate...
Take this gorgeous Gold dress I designed for example. This Bell Sleeve Wrap Dress in Gold can be seen as intimidating at first glance. But what happens if you see the gold as a neutral shade? What if it is a light brown, or a cream colour? It is much easier to pair it now isn’t it! I am wearing some gorgeous heels with this dress in a lovely mocha shade which fits beautifully with this look. You can switch this round and apply it to metallic shoes too! Your dress doesn’t need to be the centre of attention if you want to give your shoes some spotlight!
There isn’t just one set colour to wear with another, there are lots of different variations of colours so go with what you think looks good. As long as your outfit is balanced and is compatible then you are sorted with a gorgeous outfit! Fill your wardrobe with beautiful dresses and stunning shoes so you are always ready for that next event!
