6 Perfect Shoes That Fit Flawlessly With A Bodycon Dress
Your choice of shoes will determine the vibe you are giving out. It could vary from a lively summer vibe or an enticing evening look.
You don’t want to look like you are going to attend two different occasions, do you? This makes it necessary to get the right kind of shoes for your bodycon dress.
For those who are willing to embrace fashion and style without letting go of their comfort, we suggest pairing their bodycon dresses with a pair of sneakers.
Sneakers are best for giving a casual and laid-back feel to your outfit. You wouldn’t put yourself too out there with a good pair of shoes.
Moreover, they look chic as well as sporty, making this option best for summer afternoons and picnic dates.
You can select the color of the sneakers as per your dress color, but white goes with everything; just saying.
Lastly, sneakers go best with spaghetti, cut-out sleeveless, button placket sleeveless denim, light sleeveless body dress dresses, etc.
Stilettos do much more than make your outfit look elegant and flirtatious. These high-heeled shoes are known to create a lengthening effect on your leg and make your foot appear smaller.
Along with the additional height, you get a better posture. This kind of shoe works magically in making your buttocks look more prominent.
Stilettos are best for formal as well as casual events, such as corporate parties, weddings, nights out with your girlfriends, etc.
If you get the right size, comfort will not be an issue as well.
You can wear them on several kinds of bodycon dresses like one sleeve, off-shoulder, cut-out sleeveless mini, ribbed, spaghetti bodycon dresses, etc. In a way, it is the most versatile type of shoe for bodycon dresses.
Black, golden, red, and white stilettos are a must-have for every woman.
3. Pump Heels
If high heels are not giving you the stability you require, we recommend pairing your bodycon dress with pump heels.
Pump heels are best for weddings, graduation parties, prom nights, date nights, and even office parties. You can pair pump heels of varying colors as per your bodycon dress.
Similar to stilettos, they work with almost all kinds of bodycon dresses, as long as they aren’t too long.
To create a jaw-dropping outfit, you can pick out bright colors like red, yellow, blue, black, and white.
Be it ankle boots or thigh-high boots, this kind of footwear option creates an elegant and fun attire.
If you have ankle boots, you can wear any kind of bodycon dress, be it mini or long. However, if you have thigh-high boots, we recommend dresses that stay above the knee length.
Boots paired with bodycon dresses will make you feel like you are walking down the red carpet even when you are just catching up with friends.
You can try the iconic black boots or go with something colorful like navy, burgundy, or red. Choose the color as per your dress shade and let your outfit speak for itself.
A full-sleeved bodycon dress works best with boots. If you do not have one, you can wear any bodycon dress available and don a jacket.
Who said you couldn’t run errands dressed like an absolute diva?
You can wear your bodycon dress with a nice and fancy pair of sandals. It could either be t-strap sandals, ballerina flats, strappy sandals, or t-loop ones.
If you think that the sandals will tone down the elegance of your outfit, you can match it up with a nice pair of coats or blazers. This will make you look glamorous without compromising on the comfort factor.
Sandals work best with long bodycon dresses since they enhance your curves and body shape without making it seem too flashy.
6. Strappy Heels
If you are comfortable with heels, we recommend letting your inner runway model come out with a pair of strappy heels.
Strappy heels are one of our favorites since they look couture as well as chic. They work well in casual as well as formal settings.
You can wear your strappy heels with several types of bodycon dresses like off-shoulder, one-shoulder, spaghetti, shimmery, and knee-high.
How to Style your Bodycon Dress?
While bodycon dresses work well on their own, you can jazz them up with a few styling tips.
- If you are wearing a solid bodycon dress, pair it up with some jewelry and printed headscarves or headbands.
- On the other hand, if you have allegiance with prints, it is best to keep the additional accessories minimal and simple.
- Layering is the key. If you love bodycon dresses but are not comfortable with showing them off completely, wear a jacket or a coat.
- Accessorize with purses and sunglasses. Angular, cat-eye and oversized sunglasses are paving their way to the future, and you must benefit from it.
- While a hat might not be everybody’s cup of tea, you can try bucket hats to complement your outfit. But keep the shades neutral and simplistic.
Who should wear a bodycon dress?
It is a clear misconception that bodycon dresses are only for women in their 20s. With the right confidence and accessories, even a 40-year-old woman can rock a bodycon dress.
How can I hide my belly in a bodycon dress?
