5 Tips To Help You Choose the Perfect Prom Shoes

By: Hannah Oliver

You have found your perfect prom dress, and now what? It is now time to start searching for the perfect pair of shoes to wear with your dress. The shoes you choose to wear can make or break your dress, so it is very important that you think about the look that you are going for then choose the right shoes. Here at Mac Duggal, we have 5 different types of shoe options to consider!


You can not go wrong with the classic heel! If your prom dress has beautiful details that you do not want to distract from or if your dress is simplistic and classy and you want to keep that look, then definitely choose a classic heel to wear with your dress. If you picked a dress with a high leg slit and your goal is to show off your beautiful legs, then a nude-colored classic heel is the way to go because it will help elongate your leg.


Heels with a bit of sparkle can add an element of glamour to your prom look! If you have always wanted to wear a pair of sparkly heels, prom is the perfect time do to so. If your dress has no sparkle on it, then adding a pair of sparkly shoes and coordinating sparkling earrings would look fabulous! (Need help choosing earrings?

Is prom your favorite time of the year because you love to dance the night away? Then you should definitely wear a pair of sneakers with your dress! Sneakers are a huge trend again this year, and a fun pair of sneakers can be both cute and comfortable. If you are apprehensive about wearing sneakers because you are shorter, then choose a sneaker with a bit of a wedge! It is the best of both worlds. Sneakers look great with rompers, long dresses with fuller skirts, and short cocktail dresses.


If you want to spice up your prom dress, think about wearing some colorful heels! If your dress is multicolored, then it can be a great way to bring out one of the colors featured in the dress. If your dress is a solid color, you can wear shoes that are the same color as the dress or a complimentary color to the dress. Finding colorful shoes can sometimes be hard because you want to make sure that the color of your shoes does not clash with your dress. Take your dress with you when you go colorful shoe shopping so you ensure that the color of the shoes look perfect with your dress.

5. BOTH!!!

Are you looking for comfort AND style? Wear classic, sparkly, or colorful heels and then change into cute sneakers!

What could be better?
