Ask A CakeStylist | Matchy Matchy
"Can you wear shoes that match the color of your dress? Not black-on-black, but something like a cobalt blue dress with cobalt blue shoes."
We asked one of our CakeStylists, Kait, to tackle this question. Here’s what she had to say:
"We actually love mixing in different hues with your shoes because it’s refreshing! We do not like matching your shoes to your dress - it looks weird. Our rule would be to wear the darker hue on top and the lighter hue on the bottom, and the more extreme the color difference, the better! Don’t try to wear colors that are really close in hue - it will look like they’re trying to match.”
Based on Kait’s solid advice, we came up with the example above: a deep purple Peter Som tweed sheath dress with three different colors of heels you could wear with it. We think a cherry red, a light mint green, or a bright chartreuse pair of shoes would work well with this subdued shade of purple.
