A neutral color dress allows you to pair it with fun and vibrant shades for your shoes, such as ruby red or other jewel-tones. Matching the color of your shoes also allows both you and your date to shine through with your favorite color while standing out the right amount!

You will have the best poses at homecoming with him showing off his socks while standing or sitting!
