    Black vs. Nude Shoes For Your Formal Gown

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Choosing the right shoes for your formal gown is either a snap decision or a complicated discussion. While it's usually easy to tell if you should wear black shoes with your black gown, what the heck do you pair with purple or a multi-color sequin gown?

    Why we love black shoes

    Black shoes go with (almost) everything and that is probably why they are so popular. They bring together outfits for an ultra chic look but they also blend to the background allowing your gown to pop.  

    While black sounds like a pretty straight forward color but you'd be surprised. Change it up with black glitter, pretty stones, silver sparkles or gold accents to pump up those pumps!

    When to choose black shoes: With nearly any color except pastels and light earth tones unless black is repeated in a pattern or print.

    Why we love nude shoes

    Let me count the ways! Skin colored shoes blend in with your natural coloring so nude heels make your legs appear longer simply by not cutting you off at the ankle. Not to mention your outfit will stand out because the lighter shoes won't overpower the look.  

    Nude shoes should go with your skin tone so try a light beige or cream if you're fair or a shade of tan or brown if you're darker. Some designers, like Christian Louboutin, sell the same shoe in several shades of 'nude' so you can find your perfect pair. However, don't worry about matching exactly! You don't want to blend in completely and loose the shoe; Plus the effect of elongating your leg will still work even if you're a couple shades off!

    When to choose nude/light shoes: With earth tones, whites, brights and pastels. Also colors like blue, red, yellow and light purple when black might be too dark to accessorize with.

    Your Checklist to Accessorizing Prom

    Last updated 8 months ago

    ((Pin for later))


    You've got your dress and you've made your hair appointment're done right? WRONG! There are so many other things you need to complete that ensemble girl! Here is your Prom Accessory Checklist for easy shopping:

    ((Pin Checklist))


    Jewelry & Hair Tips:

    When we think prom jewelry, crystal clear jewels and heavy sparkles always come to mind. Take a look at the neckline of your gown. Can  you wear a necklace with it or is it a high-neck or one shoulder bodice? Do you need something dainty or can you rock the statement necklace? Make sure you take a close look at any embellishments like stones or sequins on your dress to help decide between the metal color of your jewelry (silver, gold, bronze, black, etc).

    Once you've picked out that necklace, the bracelet should go right along with it. This means, same metal, same color stones, and relatively same shape/size stones as well. A square gem necklace will just look funny with a round stone bracelet. Make sure your fabric is not too delicate for jewelry on your arms and hands. Some light material will snag against anything so you might need to simplify your bracelets to smooth bangles or wear none at all. All these rules apply to your earrings and ring too. 

    Take one more look at the bodice of the dress. Is there a lot of bling at the shoulders or neckline? If so you might want to go with stud earrings. These can be small or chunky, as long as they are not hanging near the dress embellishments and therefore overpowering you. If your bodice is relatively simple, toss on a pair of sparkling duster earrings. These are chandelier earrings that reach to or even past your shoulders for some mega-drama. These look great with an updo because they bring the attention straight to your face!

    Whether you're wearing your hair up, down or both, there's always a way to throw some jewels in there! We are loving the faceted accessories that are vintage inspired and popping up everywhere so why not use a few in a complimentary color to pin back some curls? Or you can go with a shinier look and rock a crystal headband as your own form of tiara.  And of course there is always the classic flower clips above the side-buns or roses in the updo that always work some beautifully for prom!

    Shoes, Bag & Etc...

    We all know you're going to take those shoes off once you start dancing so what you really need them for are the photos! Once again, take a look at your dress to figure this part out! Sometimes it's easy: if you have a black dress, wear black shoes. Sometimes it takes a little bit of creativity: if you have a purple dress, what do you do? If your dress is a dark color, chances are you can wear black shoes. Lighter colors often look better with nude shoes. And if you absolutely need more sparkle, you can match an embellished silver or gold shoe with almost anything!

    When it comes to bags, take your cues from your shoes. While they don't need to match, they certainly need to go together. We are in love with the glitter clutches that are the perfect size for your tickets, phone and some lipstick! If you don't feel like holding the bag, opt for the satin bags with shoulder straps. Once again, make sure the embellishments on your bag won't harm your dress since they will be in close contact with one another!

    Worried about a chill in the air (or dress code)? Grab an embellished shawl to cover up your back or shoulders. A plain silk or sheer shawl might look a little too mature for prom, so we picked out some that are decorated with sequins and metallic textures to add some playfulness to your outfit!

    We hope our checklist helps you pick everything out and bring your entire outfit together! Tell us what you're wearing to prom this year!
