What shoes can you wear with your black lace dress?

Lace dresses have really been on trend lately!  They are super cute, add just enough oomph to that little black dress and are flattering to all body shapes and sizes.  However,  for some reason it can be tricky to figure out the right shoes to wear with your dress. Good news friends! You can pretty much pair any color shoes with your black dress an make it work!

Strappy Sandals are a great choice for a little black dress

As you can see from the image above, strappy sandals always give black dresses (including black lace dresses) that wow factor! And, who doesn’t want to add little bit of  pizzazz to your outfit? Idk about you, but anytime I am wearing a dress, it better be a statement! I LURRVVEEE these sandals and they actually are comfortable.  The great thing about wearing strappy sandals with black is you can choose from so many different color sandals. Dark colors are obvious, but you could choose a beautiful blue color sandal and that would be a perfect way to add a pop of color. Viola! You have created a whole look that is fabulous!

Neutral Colors always work

Last summer I wore a black lace dress to a wedding and paired the dress with these glossy nude heels. Any color of nude shoes would have worked! The best thing about a shoe color that matches your skin tone is that it can really elongate the appearance of your leg! So, if you want the illusion of legs for days then nude shoes are the perfect shoes!

The white heels were a nice pairing for this cocktail dress.

It truly is a magic color for so many reasons – it’s slimming, it’s dressy, it’s classy, it exudes confidence.

Moral of this paragraph, you cannot go wrong with black. Grab some black heels and go forward with your confident, sexy self!  We love these heels with the unexpected bow on the back!

What about black boots?

So, adding black shoes to your black dress creates a chic look -adding black boots is something that is unexpected and totally (as the kids these days say) “on fleek!” You could even pair your perfect dress with black boots that are to the knee.  Ankle boots or black booties look fabulous as well. If you have a long sleeve black lace dress for a holiday or winter event, these black booties would pair really well.  Black on black 1000% looks perfect!

Pair white sneakers with a black dress for a casual vibe

This is perfect for an occasion where you need to dress up but still want to be comfortable. Hey! I wore white sneakers with my white lace wedding dress last summer and it was a perfect option! I was dressed for the occasion and I was able to dance my ???? off without my feet hurting even a little bit! 🙂 I am OBSESSED with veja sneakers – they are so comfortable and pair well with anything, yes, even your black lace dress!

Metallic Shoes are great for black midi dresses

Who doesn’t love to sparkle? If you add any kind of shoes that are gold shoes or silver shoes this creates different looks for your whole outfit! You could really wear any color of midi dress with a metallic shoe and sparkle. Actually, you could wear white dresses, navy blue, a pink lace dress, a red lace dress…HAHAHA -I think you get my point! Metallic shoes -again think golden shoes (these are stunning) or silver color shoes – are the best shoes to pair with a multitude of lace dresses, not just a black color lace dress or even just a black midi dress. These colors go wonderfully with a multitude of dress styles and colors. WOOHOO!
