Prom Shoe Guide

May 25, 2010 at 11:00AM by Kayla Hutzler |

T-Strap Shoes

Now that you have dress all figured out, it's time to find your dream shoes. If you can, bring the shawl that came with your dress to the store. Or, if you get your dress tailored, ask for a scrap of extra material so you can make sure your shoes complement your gorgeous dress when you go shopping.

If your dress is long then the shoes don't need to be super glamorous. If you're trying to match them to the dress, make sure they're exactly the same color since the material will be right next to the shoes. I suggest getting them dyed if this is what you're thinking. If not, silver or the fabulously in-style nude heels almost always work.

Short dresses require a little more attention to the shoes. Make sure the style and the color complement the style of your dress. Strappy, feminine heels may look off with a funky, "Kristen Stewart" inspired dress.

While picking out shoes, keep in mind the height of your date! Also, don't forget that you're going to be in these shoes for a pretty long time, so make sure they're comfortable! Chances are you'll be walking through grass when you take pictures (usually outside) and you'll be dancing the night away in them! If they're not comfy you'll be miserable — believe me!

Have you picked out shoes to go with your dress? Are you going short or long?
