Choose These Prom Shoes

Once you've picked the dress, you next need to pick your shoes. Find a pair of shoes that you can dance in all night long. Most girls wear their prom shoes only once. I think I wore them twice, once to prom and a couple years later to a wedding. That's why it's a good idea not to spend too much money on them.

If you're dress is long:
Be aware of how much of the shoe people will actually see. If your dress is long, only the tips of your toe might be visible, so you can be less picky with what you wear. Another issue with a long dress is the length. It can sometimes be expensive to alter a formal dress (especially if there is beading) so an alternative to altering your dress is to wear shoes with a heel that is high enough so that the length is no longer an issue.

If you're dress is short, your shoes will be on full display for all to see. Choose those shoes wisely. DSW always has a great selection and on their website there is a whole prom shoes section.

Here are a couple of my favorites from

Caparros Elle Sequined & Ruffled Sandal
