What Accessories, Shoes, and Hosiery Should I Wear to a Wedding in November with a Plum Colored Dress

by T.
(United States)

I'm going to a November wedding in Charleston, SC. I have a short-sleeved, plum dress, knee length. What kind of shoes, accessories, and hosiery should I wear - color and style?


The plum (plum/purple is one of my favorite colors!) colored dress would look fabulous with gold jewelry. Warm colors such as gold, yellow, champagne and cream will bring out the beautiful color in your dress and flatter your skintone (I'm assuming that you have a warm skin tone).

Studded cubic zirconia/diamond earrings look classy, however if you want to look trendy you could go for simple gold chandelier earrings. I wouldn't wear a necklace with chandelier earrings (it's an over-kill) but combine it out with a chain or pearl bracelet.

You might also want to add a classy purse clutch in black. The black balances out the flashy gold in your outfit.





I recommend pump shoes in black or cream/beige satin or matte leather. For a flirty look pick a pair with peep toe/and or rhinestone details.

Also add a pair of sheer pantyhose in a color similar to your skin tone for a flawless leg look.

Hope this helps! Have fun!

What Shoes to Match With a Gray Pencil Skirt

by Anonymous

What color womens shoes should I wear with a gray pencil skirt?


Gray is along with black and white a basic color, so you can wear it with womens shoes in whatever color you like.

However "chic-wise", shoes in black, brown or nude (whether it be knee boots, ankle boots, platform shoes with heels, flats, etc.), will look best with the gray pencil skirt. It's a classy and timeless color combo. You simply cannot go wrong with these three colors. If it's too plain for your taste then you can easily add one or two exciting accessories in the mix.

If you're feeling bold and want to show off your legs, wear a pair of pumps in bright colored red. It adds a nice splash of color to your outfit. And to polish the look I suggest adding a pair of sheer pantyhose, in either nude or black.

What Kind/Colour Shoes Will Go Best with My New Black Satin Cocktail Dress?

by Sarah
(UK)

I am going to a big Christmas ball soon and I want to look my best. I have just bought a fitted black satin cocktail dress (size 10, I am quite petite, have dark curly hair, blue eyes and slightly tanned skin).

I was just wondering what kind of shoes would look best with the outfit, I want them to look stylish and sexy!


Dear Sarah,

if you want to keep it simple a pair of high heeled pump shoes with slightly pointy toes in colors silver or gold would go great with your black satin dress. It's a very timeless choice - perfect for a Christmas ball.

For a flirty look try them in rhinestones details.

However if you want to inject a little bit of color, you should try other trendy (popular Winter colors) and sexy colors such as deep purple or burgundy red.

I think you should go for strappy high heel shoes for a "lacey" and sassy (yet classy) look!

I don't know how your legs look but you might want to be careful with ankle straps as they can make you (especially your legs) look shorter.

If you're going for gold shoes, make sure you wear some gold on top as well (necklace, earrings, eye makeup, etc.). It will accentuate your tanned complexion :)

Remember to add a pair of nude or black sheer stockings with your outfit!

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,
