  1. Do they complete the look?

Although your shoes are an important accessory, your dress should be the focal point! Try sticking with a simple color such as silver or gold. These colors will work perfectly with any dress, and you can even get High Heelers to match! 

  1. Can you wear them after prom?

This is one of the most important factors when you’re considering purchasing shoes for prom. Shoes can get pricey, so you want to ensure your purchase can work for more events than prom. Try to avoid crazy patterns and stick to a simpler shoe design so they will work with future outfits. 

  1. What’s your budget?


You want to be sure to factor in all accessories when coming up with a budget. Your dress will take up most of your budget, but be sure to consider all essentials for your look. Your jewelry, hair, makeup, and handbag can add up, so try not to spend too much on these items if you want to splurge on shoes.
