Some women are under the impression that black shoes are only worn with black dresses. On the contrary, you can wear them with any color. For example, you can wear a pair of black pumps with a navy dress.
In today’s blog I will show you some of the easiest and chic ways how to combine black pumps with navy dresses.
Question:I am looking for shoe suggestions to go with a navy dress I bought. I was thinking of wearing the dress with a pair of black pumps. Is this ok?
Answer:Yes, you can wear shoes that are black in color to go with your navy colored dress. A pair of black pumps will go great with your evening dress. You can also wear a pair of black sandals or even open toe sandals with this beautiful formal outfit.
What is the best way to coordinate black shoes with a navy dress? Here are a few tips to get you started:
The first tip is to avoid wearing black shoes with a navy dress that has horizontal lines. In other words, you should only wear black shoes with your navy dress if the fabric is solid or printed in a bold pattern.
The second tip is to keep your look simple. Don’t overgo with accessories or jewelry.
The third tip is to choose shoes that are versatile. For example, you can wear open-heeled black pumps to match your navy dress. Or, you can wear closed-toed black pumps to match your navy dress.
The fourth tip is to avoid wearing black shoes with a tight navy dress. It will be too much of a contrast. Instead, go for an oversized navy blouse or loose-fitting top to create a chic look that doesn’t scream, “I’m wearing black shoes with my navy dress.”
Black colored shoes would go great with a navy dress but it could also overpower your outfit. Navy is a very strong color that can potentially take over your entire look. Black compliments any color very well because it is neutral and not overwhelming. When choosing a shoe to wear with a navy dress, keep in mind the color of your belt or purse. Black and navy are “best” matched by wearing a matching set.
I would recommend that if you are going to wear a navy dress that it is not a very short one. A navy dress with a black shoe looks best when the skirt is longer. A very short skirt will make your navy dress look out of place and unappealing. The sexy factor will be lost completely.
Make sure the shoe fits well and is comfortable. Shoes that do not fit well will cause pain in your feet and possibly even calluses. Your feet will look good when they are in a good pair of shoes. Take into account the type of heel you are purchasing as some heels can be very high. If you are purchasing a very high heel, make sure it has room for your toes to fit comfortably around them. Choose a shoe that fits well and is comfortable. I recommend investing in a pair of black shoes that are both chic, professional and comfortable. 1-2 inch heels is a great choice for work attire, your feet will be grateful after a full day of standing and walking. The shoes will feel more formal because they are not overtly flashy, yet the simple colors make them more business-like.
The pointed toes are modern yet still classic, and the heels are high enough to look put-together without giving you plantar fasciitis. They will look classic and timeless, adding a little bit of flair to your outfit with a fun shape.
Black pumps are a solid way to go at work, especially if you are going into a business that requires you to look professional.
A simple pair of black pumps can work well with dresses that are slightly more casual. Spending time around your co-workers will ensure that everyone knows you are wearing stylish shoes and look great doing so.
