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?
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.
