- Cocktail dresses call for beautiful footwear but shoes for evening dresses are slightly less on show and you can prioritise comfort. They should always be pointy with a delicate heel, never clumpy.
- Don’t wear tights or stockings with an open-toed shoe and remember to get those tootsies nicely polished!
- If your shoes are heavily embellished with diamonds, sequins or brocade they may catch on the hem of a long gown, so be warned! Check them over for bits that will catch. A tiny dab of superglue can sometimes smooth out potential hazards.
- You could dress up a court shoe with some shoe clips, or a pair of inexpensive diamante clip earrings, they work well, but they are easily lost on the dance floor, use cheap jewelry whose loss you won’t regret. You could always super-glue them for extra strength.
