Finding the perfect wedding dress can be one of life’s most daunting tasks — but try finding the shoes to match. For the nonconservative winter bride, designers are offering evening shoes with a spin this season, meaning you can make the right statement while walking down the aisle (and yes, that includes nonwhite shoes).
The key to pulling off a nontraditional style? You can choose shoes with embellishments, bows and color, but just make sure the materials remain dressy (satin, lace and crystals are all appropriate, for instance).
Miu Miu bow-embellished satin pump, $775; Net-a-porter.com.
Though Paul Andrew’s bridal bootie may have a Lucite heel and mesh upper — details that don’t exactly scream bridal — it works because of the minimal white and beige color palette. The same goes for Givenchy’s embellished mule in satin, which is perfectly suitable for a wedding.
If you’re looking for that “something blue,” Miu Miu’s satin pump with bow detail is an unexpected — but perfectly refined — option. As is Roger Vivier’s classic pump with crystal brooch (a style best worn with high-low hemlines).
