If you've got a gorgeous pair of nude beige shoes and love to wear them as often as possible, you may wonder if they'll look all right with your little black dress. Don't worry about being "matchy." Black is considered a neutral shade and it looks great with more colors than you might think. Black dresses with beige shoes are totally chic.
A Slimming Look
Not only will nude shoes totally work with your little black dress, they'll also lengthen your legs. Because beige nude shoes are closer to most natural skin tones, they give the illusion of longer legs and create a slimmer look. If the beige of your shoes doesn't quite match your skin tone it's fine, although you might want to stick with a shoe that's the same color or slightly darker than your skin tone.
Ask Your Favorite Celebs
Tons and tons of celebs love black dresses paired with nude beige shoes. Jessica Simpson rocked the look with a sexy black mini and sky-high nude pumps. Fashionista Victoria Beckham slipped on a pair of beige pumps with a short-sleeved, fitted, frilly dress. It doesn't stop there. Starlet Emma Roberts wore a pretty A-line embellished dress with her nude pumps. And the list goes on and on.
Ask a Designer
Longtime French brand Celine loved the nude beige shoe and black dress trend in its Resort 2010 collection. Creative director Phoebe Philo showed black dresses, shorts, skirts and jackets paired with fab tan sandals.
Mix It Up
If you're still a little worried about the contrast of black and beige, integrate beige into other aspects of your outfit. Throw on a beige blazer or tote a beige handbag. You can even mix the colors in your shoes by wearing leopard-print pumps, booties or sandals.
