And you can rock these block heels with black sequin dress. Simply follow the some basic style rules:

  • Don’t wear casual block heels like espadrilles or wedges that will ruin your sequin dress outfit.

Shoes To Wear With Colored Sequin Dress

Shoes for Dark Colored Sequin Shoes

Dark colored sequin dresses like dark green, navy, wine, magenta and so on fall almost under the same category as a black sequin dress. They are darker in shade and become a statement piece in your outfit. And if you wear anything else that’s loud, it looks a bit too much. 

So, the best styles of footwear are either black simple strap sandals that are minimal. Or if you want to wear a fancy embellishment or pumps, opt for neutral shades that does not clash with the dress at all. 

This way your outfit looks smart and sophisticated but festive too. You don’t want to look like a Christmas tree do you?

Shoes for Light Colored Sequin Shoes

Lighter sequin dresses are fun, flirty and have a young vibe to them. And sometimes they make you look fresh in your party wear. So, don’t hesitate to try them out.  But these sequin dresses are also tougher to pair shoes with. 

You cannot wear black shoes with them, unless there is an element of black in the dress. 

The best colors would be gold, silver or clear ones that create a minimal chic look and make the dress the focus point of the outfit.

Style Tips To Not Look Tacky in A Sequin Dress

If you are reading this blog, you want to look sophisticated, expensive and classy in general. And sometimes when you look at a sequin dress, it does not feel like that. And I agree with it 100%. Here are some ways you can ensure that your sequin dress outfit look polished and not cheap and tacky:

  1. Ensure that you pick a dress that flatters your body type. You don’t need to wear a cut out dress if it does not suit you. You can pick a full sleeve one that’s modest yet looks fun. 
  2. Pick minimal jewelry. You don’t need to skip chandelier earrings or embellished ones. But make sure you stick to one bold jewelry piece and its almost always a statement earrings. Whether your neckline allows for a statement necklace, don;t wear it. Focus on a fun earring. This will elevate your look.
  3. Pick accessories and outerwear that are not glittery. So go for a faux fur black coat or jacket to balance the glitter of the dress. And pick a black or leather evening bag that looks chic but is not flashy. This balances your outfit.
