Animal prints are EVERYWHERE this season, so why not indulge in this fun trend with a sassy pair of heels at homecoming? We would pair these strappy, block-heeled, leopard print heels with a classy little black dress, so you’ll look chic and have a party on your feet! Plus the ruching on this off-the-shoulder dress is just divine. You’ll look like an old Hollywood starlet with some snazzy shoes to steal the show!
Barbie Girl Pink
These neon pink plastic heels really remind us of the jelly shoes of the 90s, as well as a certain fashion icon that has an affinity for anything pink and girly- Barbie! If you love pink, why not take a page out of her book and dress yourself in head-to-toe, eye-catching fuchsia? You’re sure to make a splash at your homecoming dance in this rosy hue! Plus, the lace, fit-and-flare dress is totally flattering and adorable!
Every Rose has a Thorn
Fall is the season of muted, brooding colors and this season has brought us some awesome floral dresses with a dark and edgy twist. We love the idea of pairing this shimmering black dress featuring rose accents with an intense, studded stiletto heel in a neutral tone that won’t clash with the red of the roses. After all, roses have thorns, right? If you’re looking for an edgy style that will help you stand out in the crowd, we definitely recommend giving this effortlessly cool pairing a try!
Feathered details have been taking the fashion world by storm lately because they impart a sense of old-timey charm and glamour and remind us of the feather boas and feather-trimmed robes that the world’s most glamorous people used to rock. A feathered puff on the end of an otherwise standard black pump gives the shoe a bit of whimsical fun that pairs perfectly with a black dress with a feather skirt!
If you want to choose a color that will never go out of style, blush pink is always a great choice! These blush pink heels are as elegant as they are refined, and feature straps that wrap around the ankle and some adorable pink floral appliques across the toe strap. A classy shoe definitely deserves a classy dress to match, so we’ve chosen this super-flattering fitted blush cocktail dress with an open back and illusion sides, that is sure to make you look and feel like an elite socialite at homecoming!
The holographic, iridescent trend has shown up in full force this season with a bevy of dresses featuring holographic, iridescent sequins and beading all-over! We love a good statement dress, and this aqua/purple fitted sequin piece definitely gives us some rockstar mermaid vibes! Why end the fun at the dress? We would go bold and daring and pair this magical dress with a pair of strappy, iridescent heels to match!
