Shoes with Black Dress – Top 10 Footwear for Black Outfits

Shoes with Black Dress. Who doesn’t love wearing black? And we all need a couple of black dresses in our closets. A black dress is a style statement on its own which is why it doesn’t usually need much accessorizing, however, the one thing that you need with a black dress is the right type of shoes.

The LBD or the little black dress is nothing less than a girl’s best friend. I mean if I had to choose between diamonds (since they are called a girl’s best friend) and black dresses then I would undoubtedly always pick the latter. So today, keeping in mind the latest style trends, we bring you the best types of shoes to wear with your black dresses.

What Shoes to Wear with a Black Dress

No matter what the season or the occasion, a black dress is always a lifesaver. You can easily wear the same dress with a hundred different looks by accessorizing it differently, layering with different pieces and by choosing different shoes. Here are some tips to remember when trying to decide your shoes:

  • If you want to elongate your legs, go for nude colors.
  • This year is all about color blocking so don’t be afraid to try shoes in colors that are in complete contrast like red, yellow, orange or even cobalt blue.
  • When buying new shoes, always consider the level of comfort they offer. You should never compromise on quality.
  • For professional or more formal settings, however, don’t take such risks and instead go for classic combinations like all black look or black dress with tan shoes.
  • For a classy look, always go sockless.
  • For a sporty look, you can wear your black dress with sneakers, loafers and slip on shoes.
  • For business settings, go for formal pumps but the ideal heel length should neither be too high nor too low.
  • If you’re wearing a black dress with a V-neck, go for any pointy shoes.
  • Any type of sandals would work well with a black maxi dress.

↓ 10 – Black and Gold Shoes

For the perfect party attire, choose golden shoes and gold accessories with your LBD. The golden color has always been associated with glitz and glam which is why just like you need a black dress, you also need golden shoes in your wardrobe. Some of the best brands for buying gold shoes this year include Vans, TOMS, Dream Pairs and Marie Claire. We also recommend that you check out these 17 Best Footwear to go with Denim.

↓ 9 – Red Wrap Heels

Wrap heels don’t just look great but they also feel great. One reason for this is that the extra support around your legs makes the shoe fits much better and this allows many ladies to wear long heels even if they otherwise have trouble balancing them. So if you’re planning to walk a lot for example when traveling or if you’re going dancing, then these surely are the best shoes to go for. There are many different ways to tie these shoes, here are three things to consider:

  • Sit down before tying the knots as this will help you get a better fit than if you do it while standing.
  • They look best when tied around the ankles, don’t go too far above as they’ll eventually slide down unless they’re meant to go that high like in case of gladiator sandals.
  • Wear cropped jeans or pants with them because obviously, your ankles need to be visible.
