Shoes to wear with navy dress

Q. My daughter is going to a birthday party, cocktail attire.  She has a beautiful navy blue dress, and doesn’t know what color shoes to wear with it.  I suggested silver or cream, she and her friends say white.  What do you think?

-Who’s Right? 

A. I’m proud to say you’re a mom who still has her cool factor.  You suggested the best answer—your daughter should choose silver shoes. It’s a cocktail party and that means her look should be a little fancy.  Silver shoes will rock her look. White is hard to work into a wardrobe and even if she finds a strappy pair, they just don’t look as sophisticated, stylish or dare I say “fashion forward” as metallic.  A fantastic silver pair can be worn with multiple looks from jeans to colors like white, black, pink, etc. I’m sure there are many more parties in her future and silver is far more appealing.

    I am wearing a navy dress with giant white polka dots on it to a wedding. The dress is knee length and the wedding is in July.

    Please help.

    Look for navy patent leather sandals–patent leather is the “it” fabric this season-it’s young and fresh. If you can’t find navy patent then opt for red or balck patent leather strappy heels or peep toe pump.

    Please help I have a navy blue dress I am going to wear to a evening wedding this weekend (July 7th). The dress is apropiate for the occasion being that it is knee length and has wide straps at the top, but it just seems a little boring. What could I pair with it in jewerly, shoes, belts, and etc to make it not so drab?

      Try black or silver strappy shoes or you can try navy if you are able to find a nice pair.
