We all know that accessories can make or break an outfit, and this is more true in case of shoes. If you wear the wrong pair with a gorgeous dress, it is not only a fashion disaster, but will also end up ruining a potentially great outfit.
With the latest trend of wearing the little white dress, many women get confused as to what shoes to pair it with. They are notoriously difficult to accessorize as wearing white shoes makes you look more like a bride, and wearing black ones makes it look over coordinated.

What Shoes to Wear with White Dress?

Many fashion designers have predicted that the little white dress might soon attain iconic status same as the little black dress. They are incredibly versatile, as they can be worn for a lunch out with friends, and can also be worn for a cocktail party.

The type of dress will be a deciding factor to choose the right pair of shoes. For a white maxi, select gladiator sandals in gold, copper and wedge heels in metallic colors. You can enhance your look by wearing layered gold chains or a gold cuff.
If you are going to wear a white dress to work, which is conservatively cut, then the best option would be black court shoes. When these are paired with a black blazer and belt, they give an extremely professional look. They are demure, yet sexy. You can also wear navy or tan kitten heel shoes.
For a cocktail party or a soiree, the best option would be to have a pop of color in your all white outfit with red or blue shoes. For dramatic colored pumps with your dress, make sure that your jewelry and clutch matches your dress.
The best option is to wear red pumps with sky high heels to give your outfit that bit of color and oomph. Coordinate your look by carrying a red quilted clutch, and minimum jewelry. Red pumps are definitely on the list of must have shoes for every woman.
Now for the more couture white dress, like a Grecian draped or an origami dress, you need designer shoes to go with it. Strappy sandals and ankle strap shoes are the best options in this case.
Ensure the sandals you choose don't have many crystals/stones, which look tacky. Silver, bronze, champagne, gold ankle strap shoes give a divine look.
If you are not a fan of high heels, then opt for gold and silver ballet pumps that come with metallic textures. They are super pretty, and will lend a romantic and dreamy look to your outfit. Also opt for the Marc Jacobs Jelly shoes that come in a lot of bright colors.
If you want to make a dramatic statement with your white Herve Leger bandage dress, the best shoes to go with such a designer dress is leather ankle booties or black suede. Remember to wear booties and not those slouchy suede boots or cheap UGG boots.
The kind of shoes that you pair with dresses, depends largely on the cut and design of the dress. White dresses are here to stay, and you should have the right shoes and accessories to wear them with.
