4 styling rules: How to find the perfect shoes for your dress!

No matter which dress you want to wear, if you know these 4 simple styling rules, you will find the perfect shoes for your outfit!

1. The shoes must match the occasion

The first and at the same time most decisive question: What do you want to wear your outfit for? Depending on whether the occasion is festive or casual, different shoes go well with the dress. With shoes you can either upgrade your outfit, i.e. make it even more chic, or give it a casual touch.

Elegant shoes with heels such as pumps or exciting sandals (e.g. these from Amazon) work as outfit refiners. Remember: For floor-length dresses, the heel height of the shoes should be matched to the length of the skirt. If the shoes are too high for the dress, there is a high water alarm. If the shoes are too flat, the dress will drag on the floor. It is perfect when you can still see the tips of your shoes despite the maxi dress.

With sporty shoes such as sneakers or flat sandals, you can make clothes that look more chic, suitable for everyday use and more casual.

2. Safe choice: picks up on the style of the dress

Take a close look at your dress: is it more casual and sporty or chic and elegant? Straightforward or boho style? Look for shoes that go with this style. You can wear sneakers with a sporty dress; you should combine chic shoes with an elegant evening dress.

The following applies to the brave: You can also consciously choose shoes that Not match the style of the dress. Such a break in style can be really exciting. How about rough leather sandals with a romantic lace dress?

3. Color duplications have a particularly harmonious effect

A safe choice are shoes in a shade that appears in the dress. This makes the look harmonious. But you can also work with contrasting colors on the shoes for the dress. Important here: Pick up the color of the shoes again with other accessories such as bags or jewelry.

Pro tip: Wear skin-colored shoes such as pumps or sandals. These shoes go with any other color and the legs look extra long in them.
