At Camille La Vie, our aim is not only to provide you with the perfect prom dress designed to dazzle you on the dance floor, but to also supply some fabulous footwear in the mix! And with a myriad of dress styles to choose from in our stores, finding the right shoe can be a bit of a task. What strappy sandal should you wear with that vibrant watercolor print high-low dress? Or what about a fierce animal print style combined with a metallic swirl design? Is it always necessary for the shoe color to match the boldest color of your dress? Like hot pink dress to go with hot pink shoes? Possibly not always the case. As a fashion tip, to keep things simple, it’s essential to go with a neutral shoe that possesses just the right amount of shimmer and let’s your beautiful dress do most of the talking. With our 2012 Camille La Vie Shoe Collection, you’ll definitely achieve head-turning results at your Prom bash. Another added benefit to our footwear? They’re perfect enough to be worn not only for Prom, but for virtually any cocktail party or night out with friends or that special someone.
Characteristics to look for in a versatile shoe for your Prom include:
1. Hint of Rhinestones. You can find the perfect strappy sandal with the right dose of sparkle that won’t overpower your overall look. Whether your sandal style is a timeless t-strap, ankle strap or slingback, find a pair that zeros in on some sparkle in one area of the shoe (perhaps the t-strap itself) and keeps the rest in a minimal hue.
2. Nudes, Metallics or Blacks. You simply cannot go wrong with these excellent color palettes. They work incredibly well with any dress color or pattern of your choice, and can even revamp a basic day look into something spectacular by night.
3. Platform Element. Finding a sandal with a platform sole will elongate your figure and can even add up to an additional 6 inches to your height, while ensuring that you still walk comfortably in your fabulous prom dress.
