How To Do: Evening Wear (Part 2)!

How To Do: Evening Wear (Part 2)!

On Monday I talked about what dress styles are trendy, and how you can work both short and long. Today, I’m going to show you what shoes, bags, and accessories are available to wear with your dress. Let’s start with the shoes:


Shoes are a very important part of your outfit. Heels give height, glamour and impact. If you feel comfortable wearing high heels, do! But if you don’t, flats are fine; just make sure you chose them well, and chose a dress that goes well with them. Finding a dress is the easy job, but finding shoes that you are happy in, and look good with your dress is the hardest thing to do. So, here is a selection of great high heels, mid heels and flats:
