What color shoes with black dress?

Tomorrow nite I am wearing a black v neck dress with a ribbon belt around the waist with acordion pleats to the knee. I am trying to decide what shoes to wear. Last time I wore the dress I wore gold strappy stiletto sandals. I was thinking of maybe removing the ribbon belt and replacing with either a leopard print belt or red patent leather and wearing either red or leopard peeptoes. Or should I stick with the gold?

Help!

    No not leopard, go with red or gold.

    Since you wore gold last time you might prefer to wear red, but I think gold will look better so you could replace the ribbon belt with a gold belt...

    With the leopard I think gold would go the best. If you use the red belt or even no belt, red would look fantastic. And silver is more universal, you could wear that with just about everything. White is an option also.

    I find shoes depend upon the occation. A good pair of stylish black boots with silver fixtures could do wonders for a more casual setting or I personally would go for two toned platform heels for something more formal. My favorites with black ... metalic colors (bronze is my metal of choice), rusts (reds to oranges - think autumn), bubblegum pink (but you need to have those match a scarf or jewelery), mauve, or if you have the personality to pull it off, yellow or emerald green. I do not like animal prints as I find them too explictly "look at me" when something more unique will do the job better. AVOID pastels, purples/blues, or wearing shoes so strappy that they will get lost. The color choice is actually less important than the shoe being fun and making you feel happy.

    and let me quote nzgirl ... "Shoes, glorious shoes. When wearing a little black dress do not…I repeat do not wear it with black shoes. You’ll either look like you’re off to a funeral or off to marry Marilyn Manson (where's he gone by the way?). Too much black is depressing and boring. You need shoes with sparkle, colour, shimmer and detail to make your little black dress shine once again. "

    In your case I would choose the reds but if you have a cute jacket to tone it down a notch, I'd do that.

    Black, silver or red. I personally don't like gold and black together.

    I was watching the Look For Less once and the inspiration outfit had a black pencil skirt and silver heels. (I forget what color the top was.) I never thought of wearing silver shoes with a black outfit until I saw that. It looked really nice.

    Go for the gold! Or silver! Red is nice, but more for Christmas in this season. Definitely go for the shimmer for New Years. And totally jazz it up with the accessories!! It sounds like the dress is very nice and classy. Make it real fun and sexy with the other details! You still have time, go out and find a real nice silver belt. Something big and shiny. (Not gaudy, you know) Match it up with the necklace, earrings, bracelets, shoes... Have fun!

    If you remove the belt replace it with a color so that you can find shoes and a purse the same color to match. Happy New Year!! Be safe

    you can wear red shoes that makes it elegance. Gold is a nice choice actually ,but if you wanna change you wear silver sandals it goes along with the dress too.
