    If you’re shopping for short prom dresses, don’t forget a great pair of shoes! One of the many advantages of short prom gowns is choosing a fun pair of heels to show off.  My shoe fetish continues to roll, so here are

    Short Prom Dresses Paired with Fab Heels

    PromGirl Faviana open back short black prom dress

    Faviana uses sequins and sheer inserts

    Totally sophisticated and elegant, this Faviana short prom dress uses sheer inserts and geometric sequin motifs to create a slim silhouette. Which shoe do I choose?

    The Lotus  echoes those trim lines and sheer inserts. The ankle strap secures your fit in the 3 ½” heels. This high heel would look great with the Faviana open back dress.

    Strapless sweetheart chiffon dress

    An adorable chiffon strapless dress features a pleated sweetheart neckline with a flared ruched bodice and a gathered full skirt. Available in a myriad of colors, who can resist a modern twist on the classic short prom dress?

    When choosing a cute heel to coordinate with this prom dress, I’m choosing a modern interpretation of a t strap heel. This 2 ¾” heel features an embellished t and three thin bands across the toe.

    I almost hesitate to say it after my post on short heels for prom. This fabulous 5″ heels with a 1 ½” platform would be a fabulous match for the short lace prom dress. Don’t you love them? These heels have the ever so trendy peep toe, embellished with tiny black rivets and an ankle strap to steady you on the dance floor.

    On prom night, let me dance and have fun. That means wearing heels less than three inches. Don’t take me wrong, heels are fun to look at… they just aren’t that comfortable to wear. A low heel sandal looks great with the prom dress. In a floor length prom gown, I’m already not used to the extra long skirt. Do I want to worry about looking like a fool in high heels? No, sir!

    5 Lovely Low Heel Sandals for Prom

    PromGirl Silver Taryn Touchups Heels

    Taryn by Touch Ups in Silver

    A strappy sandal with a 2″ heel, the Taryn by Touch Ups in silver lengthens your legs without ruining your stride. Silver sandals for prom are all the rage in 2016. Adjustable ankle straps keep those short heels in place even if you kick up your feet.

    PromGirl Page prom beaded low wedge sandals

    Paige wedge sandals with 2 ¾” heels

    Paige features a 2 ¾ inch heel in a nude wedge sandal. The beads add a sparkling touch, giving an extra dressy look to these ultra comfy prom shoes. A low heel wedge sandal offers a lot of support while dancing and waiting in line for the promenade.

    PromGirl beaded flat dress sandals

    Lilly beaded flat sandals

    Don’t like heels at all? Get that criss cross style and a flat heel with the Lilly beaded sandals. While the beads dress up the flat sandals, I could imagine plenty of other summer special occasions (graduation or  summer wedding receptions, anyone) to wear these cute sandals.

    PromGirl silver kitten heel shoe

    Avery silver kitten heel sandal

    Boasting a sweet 1″ heel, these T strap kitten heel sandals work with both traditional or trendy prom gowns. The peep toe shoes off your pedicure, but the wider strap is less like to result in blisters than a strappy sandal might.

    PromGirl embellished ballerina flat

    Hanna sparkling ballerina flat

    Looking for a flat with sparkle? Hanna, the ballerina flat could be your answer. Embellished fabric and the classic princess style works for any type or length of prom dress.

    PromGirl low heel pewter rhinestone t strap sandal

    Jazz the low heel rhinestone T strap

    Jazz is a versatile sandal for prom with a rocker vibe. There’s a strong energy in this T strap sandal with a one inch wedge heel. Break them in for prom, but enjoy these sandals all summer long.

    All of these short heel prom sandals are available in sizes 5 -11 (with Taryn also available in size 12). How low will you go? Dance with style, confidence and comfort wearing these great sandals, each with one to three inch heels.

    Once upon a time, we wore dresses with boots to keep us warm. Fortunately, those days are gone. Boots are a fashion staple fall, winter or spring. From ankle to over the knee, casual, career or party dresses now have boot options. Just think of the opportunities with these 4 dresses:

    Shop PromGirl for casual blouson dresses

    Belted blouson dress available in many solid colors

    Style a blouson dress with boots for casual or work settings. Wear this dress with 3/4 length sleeves for three seasons (with four available colors, wear this dress often!). Boot choice is equally flexible. This could be the dress that shows off the boot! Taking clues from the narrow belt, a bit of a heel keeps this day to night dress from looking too clunky.

    Sleeveless career dresses - PromGirl

    Black and white sheath dress

    For the office, ankle boots are a trendy yet practical option. This sleeveless black and white dress looks sharp with the accented waistline darts and horizontal lines at the bodice and lower skirt. For cocktail receptions and nights out, this sheath dress looks equally at ease. Play off the “delicate but daring” balance when you choose a boot for this dress.

    Shop PromGirl for black dresses

    Black lace dress

    Pull up those over the knee boots and rock this black lace mini dress! This is a match made in fashion heaven. Heels are an option with this scoop back dress, but why not go dramatic?  Here’s your chance!

    Shop PromGirl for gray kimono dresses

    Grey striped kimono dress

    To finish, the dress that loves all boots: fashion forward kimono dress.  Who can resist a comfy knit dress that can be styled for almost any occasion? Ok, the grey stripes do keep it more casual, but this affordable dress looks great with any heel or boot height.  Go for it!

    So many dresses, and now, so many boots! They’re not just to keep you warm any more.

    Air conditioned days at work might keep us cool and concentrated, but we can’t wait to enjoy long summer evenings. Here’s 3 dresses that go from day to night looking polished, pretty and ready for anything.
    black day to night career dress from PromGirlTake a basic black cap sleeve dress, add a shot of pizzaz and voilà! You get a perfect 3 season dress.  The wide purple and white stripes give this lbd a trendy edge. Professional at work but playful at night, this lined dress has a back decorative zipper. Switch out the shoes and jewelry to totally change your look. Black is a perfect palette for your favorite accessories.

    Basic black not your style? Then perhaps this sleeveless peach color block dress captures your aesthetic.  peach sleeveless color block party dress at PromGirl

    Bands of lemony yellow and sky blue flow from the wide gentle pleats to create a full skirt. A deep scoop back and front v neck lets you show off a tan, but the roll over edging along the neckline definitely keeps this day to night dress out of the typical sundress category. Add a short cardi or jacket to fend off the air conditioning.  Every day becomes a holiday when you wear this summer dress!

    Black and white print sleeveless dress at PromGirlDon’t forget the prints! This black and white print dress has a pop of pink in the pattern, highlighted by the narrow pink belt. Sleeveless, this summer dress also features a deep scoop back.  The modern floral print looks great at the office, at parties, dinner out or just shopping after work. You’ll pull this dress out of the closet every chance you can!

    Just when everyone tells us we need to lean in, at least you can balance work and play easily with great summer dresses.
