So, what color shoes go with a gold dress?

In this article, we are going to go over different colors and styles of shoes that will work with a gold dress.

For the short answer, you can pair a gold dress with gold, black, nude, red, and even silver can work depending on the style and material of your dress.

But read on to find out which shoes and colors will go best with your gold dress.


What Color Shoes Go With A Gold Dress?

Not only do you need to think about color, but the style of the shoe has to go with the dress you’re wearing.

Now more often than not, a gold dress will be worn for more formal or glitzy ‘night-out’ occasions. So when choosing a shoe that will go with your gold dress, look for something with at least a bit of a heel.

Gold

Now when it comes to what color shoes go with a particular color dress, you can always just match the shoes to the dress!

With most color dresses, it’s most often best to go with an exact match to the dress. However, with gold, you have a little more leeway.

With most color dresses, it’s most often best to go with an exact match to the dress. However, with gold, you have a little more leeway.

It doesn’t have to be the exact same color as long as it’s the same tone of gold. Gold can have a lot of different color nuances, from champagne to yellow gold and white gold to green gold. So when choosing a gold shoe, look for a gold in the same tone as your dress.

It can be a little lighter or darker but you don’t want it to clash.

Here are a few more dressy styles in different gold colors you might want to give a try.

Now in the event that you happen to own one of the very few less formal gold dresses, something like the one in the pic above, you can go for a more casual style of shoe.

A wedge sandal  in a glitter gold, or even gold flats  will work with a more casual gold dress.


All That Glitters…

Gold of course is not your only color option with a casual gold dress. You in fact have a lot more options of styles and colors. Along with the colors we’ll go over below, you can opt for a more casual shoe in tan or brown leather as well. 


Silver & Metallics

Black

Black is a neutral color and goes well with pretty much any color dress, so it’s no surprise that black and gold look great together, too.

It’s almost always best to go with a black matte shoe. This way, you will avoid shiny shoes competing with a shiny dress.

Nude

Nudes are of course neutral. Nude will go with every color dress, but it works surprisingly well with gold.

Nude heels are meant to be your gold dress’ wingman… doing their thing and fading into the background while your dress is the star of the show.

They are also a great choice if you can’t decide on a color, so you can skip the colored heels altogether and go for nudes!

You can go for a brighter poppy red with a dress that is a more saturated yellow gold.

For lighter and darker, less saturated gold dresses, opt for a deeper red, like crimson or burgundy, and even deep plum can work really well.

What Accessories Go with Gold?

Like we started out saying; gold is a statement color, and your accessories should also make a statement.

Making a statement doesn’t have to mean over-the-top flash, but if your accessories are going to be competing with a gold dress, you want them to not only match, but be noticed!

Earrings

Statement earrings   are a great way to accessorize. And if you are going for the the gold dress and silver shoes, your mixed metal accessories  can tie your look together.

If you are opting for a black shoe, black earrings can also look fabulously sophisticated.

Bracelets

Bracelets are also another way to bring an outfit together. A gold cuff bracelet is the perfect accent. Just make sure that any gold jewellery you pair with the dress is in the same tone as the dress.

Here’s the look:

Handbag

The right handbag for your gold dress will depend on the occasion. But if you’re wearing gold, chances are it’s a more fancy, formal occasion. For fancier, more formal occasions, a clutch purse will always work.

Black clutch

You can never go wrong with a black clutch .

You can either match your bag to your dress or your shoes in most cases, unless you are going for a gold shoe/gold dress combo, in which case, just stick with black because it will be too much gold.

Also maybe go for black with a nude shoe if it’s a more formal occasion.

Otherwise, if you want to match your bag to your dress, like with the jewellery, just make sure it’s the same tone of gold.
