Formal Shoes For Women

Formal shoes for women provide the finishing touch on a well-selected evening gown. Different shoes convey different looks, and there's a perfect look for any formal outfit chosen. Color has a lot to do with how the outfit is perceived, and evening shoes can either compliment or contrast with the dress or outfit. Evening wear is no longer limited to gowns, and jumpsuits and pants suits work equally well with these shoe selections.

The most traditional formal shoes for women come in basic black. Both shiny and matte finishes are available. Usually, if the dress is matte, a shimmery shoe makes the outfit pop. With shiny dresses, allow the dress to make the statement and opt for matte finish shoes. Evening sandals in black are classically paired with black dresses, but black is an elegant color that also pairs excellently with silver, red, gold, blue, pink and green evening wear.

Silver shoes are very glamorous, and are ideal when paired with a shimmery white, silver or grey dress. Look for evening pumps in silver, but don't limit the dress selections to white and silver. This color also looks spectacular with bright red, electric blue, emerald-green and also black. Try choices available by Alfani and many others.

Red and fuchsia shoes are bold and daring. Wear red or hot pink peep toe pumps to bring an eye-popping splash of color to dark evening wear, such as brown, black, dark grey or navy blue. Or, go all out with a matching dress that will catch eyes from all the way across the room. Find great selections of formal shoes for women by Badgley and many more.

Bring an air of sophistication to the formal dress or outfit with shimmering gold platform sandals. Gold catches the ambient light and is easily illuminated even in darkness. Wear gold shoes with any gold or yellow formal dress or pants suit, but gold also wears extremely well with red, deep blue, purple and black.
