The ultimate guide to...

Shoes

There are several factors that you need to consider before buying your shoes. For instance, you must be sure to choose a pair that complements your dress style, how much height is best for you and, of course, the all important comfort factor.

Shop shoes

Consider comfort

For a special occasion you could be on your feet for hours so your shoes need to be comfortable, especially if you like to dance. Remember occasionwear dresses are designed to accommodate the height of a shoe so, if you are uncomfortable in high heels, avoid long dress styles - this way you can wear flat shoes without risking the trail of any fabric. If you want a bit of added height, but aren't used to stilettos, you can opt for platform heels, kitten heel or a sparkling pair of flat ballerina shoes.

Find comfortable shoes

Shoes to suit your style

Your shoes should also reflect your individual style and personality. For instance if you are confident in high shoes, consider opting for the ultimate pair of killer heels. If you are attending a non-traditional event then your shoes can be funky and trendy. However, for more traditional events, you may want to adhere to a dress code and therefore won't want your shoes to look out of place.

The right pair

The type of occasion will affect the type of shoes you buy. If you are attending a wedding in the day and night you might want to consider buying a flatter pair for the day and high heels for the evening. This will help your feet stay comfortable all day and adds variation to your outfit.

Find shoes for every occasion

Shoes for the bride

Shoes with some sparkle look fabulous as they peek under the bottom of your dress. It's your day, so go for decadence - but think about how long you'll be wearing the shoes and go for comfort if you need to.

Tips for finding shoes


  • If your outfit is detailed and embellished, opt for a shoe that is plain and vice-versa. You only need one focal point and this should be either your shoes or dress, never both.
  • The width of a shoe is just as important as the shoe size. Shoe size and widths vary from style to style, so find out if half sizes are available - you might be surprised at how much difference the extra half size makes.
