Getting dressed up for an evening affair means finding the right dress to make you feel confident while being appropriate for your event. Once you’ve settled on your perfect dress, getting an appropriate shoe is just as essential. For an espresso gown, opt for muted colors that don’t distract from the elegance and fashion of your gown.
Espresso is a rich chocolate color and pairs well with shoes within the same hue or with some variation. Pair your dress with gold strappy heels. For a strapless dress with a wide, flowing skirt, wear a shoe with a strap around the ankle. Polish your toes in bright red. Finish your look wearing your hair gathered into a side ponytail and curled into large ringlets. Secure with a gold sequin hair clip.
Wear a satin espresso evening gown with rhinestone embellishments at the waistline with a sexy pair of pewter heels. For a halter style dress, wear a pewter pair of peep-toe heels with similar rhinestone ornament at the toe. Add a matching pewter satin clutch and finish with a rhinestone hair brooch to secure a tousled up ‘do.
Like a little black dress, a pair of black heels is an essential piece to add to your wardrobe. You can slip into your favorite heels without the last-minute mad rush to the shoe store. Wear a pair with criss-crossing straps. To tie in your brown and black evening look, add matching long drop earrings and an oversized black stone cocktail ring.
When your dress is a little bit party while still appropriate enough for your evening soiree -- such as a hip-hugging stretch satin espresso pencil style gown -- wear shoes that don’t take any attention off of you and your curves. Opt for a pair of nude closed-toe heels. This simple, super-muted shoe shows that you have style but don’t always need to be over the top to flaunt it.
