Because black is considered a neutral color you have many shoe color choices to wear with your dress. Black shoes would be very elegant with a black velvet dress and sheer black or nude color stockings. Metallic color shoes in silver or gold would look very dressy with your dress and give you accessory and jewelry (gold or silver metal) options. Red shoes would work with black tights for a more fun look. There are many decorated shoes that would look chic with a black velvet dress on NYE. The style of your dress will dictate the style of shoe you decide to wear. Pump and slingback style shoes will work with anything and you can wear sheer neutral or black stockings or tights.

A Holiday Staple –The LBD
Black dresses are a holiday staple reflecting the modern woman and can be fun, au courant, and free-spirited. The LBD (Little Black Dress) still remains the ultimate wardrobe staple after fifty years. Audrey Hepburn is responsible for putting it on the fashion map when she wore the glamorous black Givenchy cocktail dress in the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” movie. Alive and well today the LBD is not always as serious as the one worn by Ms. Hepburn.
The Little Black Dress – The Wardrobe Essential
“The Little Black Dress” has been described as sophisticated, sexy, provocative, chic, elegant, practical, seductive, correct, and ageless. The fashion designer, Christian Dior, said ” You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it on almost any occasion. A little black frock is essential to a woman’s wardrobe.” What’s great about “The Little Black Dress” is that it looks fabulous with or without jewelry. You can wear a scarf with it for an interesting effect and it doesn’t show dirt if you take it traveling. In addition black is slimming so you’ll look a few pounds less when wearing it. * The Duchess of Windsor
