When choosing what color of shoes to wear with your long black dress think about if you want to draw attention downward or upward. Since your dress is long they won’t be very noticeable. Black shoes would be elegant with your black dress and a classic choice for a black tie event. You can focus attention upward on you with some interesting jewelry, an up-to-date-hairstyle and flattering makeup. A black sequin or beaded bag or a bag would be chic or a bag that ties in with your jewelry. For example if you are wearing sparkly (quality rhinestone or diamond) earrings a silver leather or sequin bag might work. Try some different jewelry and bag combinations. Your dress sounds like a show stopper!
Buy footwear in mid-afternoon when your feet are at their largest. Choose a style which suits your foot shape (do not force your feet into ill-fitting shoes). Be sure to allow some space between the end of your longest toe and the end of the shoe and ensure that the width fitting is correct. When buying shoes don’t expect tight shoes to loosen up.
