14. Red Lace Cocktail Dress
Red, burgundy, and other vibrant colors are perfect for cocktail parties.

Here’s a lace dress that has all the elements of a formal dress that balances style with elegance perfectly. Wear black pumps, put your hair up in a chignon updo and do your thing.
There is no doubt that lace dresses are gorgeous. But a lace dress transforms into a truly magical outfit when styled with the right shoes. Here’s a handy guide to picking out the perfect shoes for your lace crochet dress.
What Shoes To Wear With Lace Dresses
While there are no hard and fast rules for choosing shoes that go with lace dresses, there are a lot of unsaid ones. The kind of shoes you wear and their color complete your outfit. Elevated shoes like peep toes, pumps, and wedges look the best on lace dresses. But you can give it a good spin by sometimes styling them with ankle booties for a grunge look or gladiators for a boho vibe. Let’s take a look.
What Shoes To Wear With Neutral Lace Dresses
Neutral, nude, and pastel shades are easy to style because they are straightforward. Go with nude pumps, ankle strap heels, peep toes, or wedges. Keep them elevated and neutral.
What Shoes To Wear With Black Lace Dresses
A black lace dress worn with black shoes is a standard outfit. Nude, gold, and silver are other exciting choices. Match your accessories with your boots and do not go overboard because your black lace dress does not need anything more.
What Shoes To Wear With White Lace Dresses
If you are trying to keep it casual or chic, you can choose Oxfords, Converse shoes, or any tan colored sandals. For everything else, go for ankle straps or other high heels in nude, white, or black. Classy and sophisticated.
What Shoes To Wear With Bold Colored Lace Dresses
The easiest approach is to look for shoes or sandals in the same shade or color as your dress. Sometimes, lighter or darker shades work well too because it’s obviously not easy to find an exact match. Creating an ombre effect is a smart way of styling your outfit. Or flip it around by color blocking your shoes and matching the accessories with them.
You can’t go wrong with lace dresses unless you over style them with too many accessories. That’s one lace gaffe most of us make. Take care of basics, and you are all set. Are lace dresses your go-to for special occasions too? Let us know by dropping in a text in the comments section below.
