Gray is a beautiful neutral color and many color shoes will look good with a dark gray dress. Some of the colors to try with your dress are black, gray/pewter/silver, red, maroon, beige and medium brown. Choose a style that will be appropriate for the occasion you will be wearing the dark gray dress (casual or dressy).
Season of the Shoe
It is the season of the shoe. There seems to be a move away from the platform shoe and stiletto heels this Fall. The fashion forward and early adopter divas will be dancing the night away in evening sneakers with cocktail dresses or evening gowns and wearing pointy toe oxford flats with slouchy pants and loose dresses.
Shoes can make or break an ensemble. In addition to choosing the right style and fit, caring for your feet and your budget are also essential considerations. Shoes are an investment therefore buy the best you can afford.
Statement Shoes: Platforms
Some platform shoe styles can add 4 or 5 inches to your height (or more?). Agreed looking taller and slender is appealing, and quite a few of us can benefit from adding a few inches to our legs. However, blurred by our long leg dream, the platforms have taken over our common sense. Perched on unstable blocks, we stomp the street unfortunately failing to realize how ungracefully we move.
