What Shoes Should You Wear for Church? 3 Super Cute Ideas

10 Minutes

In this lookbook, I'm going to be showing you what shoes to wear with your church outfits.

I feel like shoes for church should be comfortable, but they can also be chic - a church outfit doesn’t need to be a boring one.

Here, I will show you what shoes to wear and exactly how to style them.

Black pumps for church

1. Black pumps

A pair of black pumps not only complete your church outfits, but any outfit. They pair well with everything!

They are very chic, so will make you look dressed up and put together. They're also a comfortable, practical pair of shoes. Every woman should have a pair of classic black pumps in her wardrobe.

One way to style these shoes for church is with a two-piece blazer and pant set. Two-piece sets can go a long way in your wardrobe because you can always mix and match each piece with other things.

To add a little trendy touch to this look, I added a belt around the waist over the blazer. The belt is a stylish accessory that doesn’t overdo the look. It still keeps things nice and simple. The gold buckle at the front adds a subtle glam touch.

For outerwear, I’m wearing a classic peacoat, this is another type of classic piece to have in your wardrobe. It pairs perfectly with the black pumps.

A tote bag in a caramel tone completes the look. 

Red heels for church

2. Red heels

The next pair of shoes you can wear to complete your church outfit are some colorful red heels.

A pair of shoes like this are great to kick off the spring, and they help you to transition your wardrobe by adding pops of color to your winter outfits.

These shoes are super comfy because they have a block heel. The front is made from a woven material, so they're soft to wear. The bright, bold red adds a nice pop to any outfit.

Here, I’ve paired the shoes with a printed skirt in a maxi length. I kept it simple up on top with a plain black top.

I love that the shoes have straps to tie around the ankles. It adds a nice bit of detail.

For the outerwear piece, I've gone with another black pea coat. This one here is in a shorter length and has gold button details.

I added another touch of color to the look by going for a red bag that also has some gold trim details that tie in with the coat.

3. Slingbacks

The last pair of shoes that I’m going to share with you is a pair of slingback shoes. I love shoes with embellishments, and these ones have a beautiful pearl bow on the front. The shoes are in a soft satin material and are emerald green.

For those ladies who like their church outfits to be a bit more casual, I’ve styled the shoes with a pair of wide-leg denim jeans and a classic cream knit sweater.

The shoes instantly dress up the laid-back look without you having to do too much.

For the outerwear piece, I added a green pea coat. This shade of green is very on trend for spring and summer, and it brings some color to the outfit.

To finish off the look, I have an all-pearl bucket bag. I feel like this bag, just like the shoes, adds a nice little dressed-up detailed touch to the outfit.
