Grey is quickly becoming a super popular color from bridal wear to office attire because of its understated elegance and versatility.

But how do you pair shoes with grey? What color shoes go with a grey dress?

Because grey is neutral, there are loads of different colors that you can wear with a grey dress. In this article, we are going to look at nine of our favorites that go fantastically well with grey.

It should be noted that there are different shades of grey, from dark to light, and different tones of grey, from warm to cool. We’re going to show you which grey each of the following shoe colors is best paired with.


What Color Shoes To Wear With a Grey Dress

You can get almost any type of dress in grey, so what we’re going to do is show you lots of different styles of shoes that will work with anything from a sweater dress to an evening gown and everything in between!

We’ll give you some style inspiration as we go through the list of colors.


1. Black

You can never really go wrong with black. Both black and grey are neutral colors and go well together. Black will elevate any grey dress for a more formal or professional look.

But because black is a go-anywhere-with-anything color, it also works perfectly well with more casual looks as well.

Blush (a.k.a. light dusty pink) shoes with a lighter grey dress is a feminine chic look. Both grey and blush are understated colors. Blush works well with both warm and cool greys. This color pairing is perfect for weddings and anywhere you want to look pretty, but not attract all the attention.

3. Light Blue

Like blush shoes, light blue shoes are also understated and go fantastically well with a grey dress for all the same reasons. Light blue is also better suited to lighter grey dresses. But make sure you pair light blue shoes with a dress that is a cool grey, rather than a warm grey.

4. Burgundy

Burgundy is a sneaky color because it makes an impact, but not in an in-your-face kind of way. It’s an unexpected pop of color that is still elegant.

It’s dark enough to be suitable for an office setting, but looks just as good in a sexy, strappy heel with a cocktail dress or even as thigh high boots paired with a grey sweater dress.

Burgundy shoes are best suited for medium to darker grey dresses.

Word to the wise… both sweater dresses and over-the-knee boots are going to be super hot as the temperatures start to drop this fall.

5. Nude

Nudes shoes are neutral and go with pretty much everything, including grey dresses. Like the blush and light blue we talked about earlier, nude shoes are understated.

But unlike pink and blue, isn’t quite so cutesy.

Not that cute is a bad thing, but a nude shoe with a grey dress is more elegant than cute. And they’re more professional in the workplace if you want to look more like the boss than the admin!

Here are the shoes:

Nudes, however, most often have a warm tone to them and are better suited to warmer greys.

But if your dress is a cool grey, not to worry, we have another color coming up that is the nude’s cooler cousin and has the same subtle effect, but matches better with cooler-toned greys. So keep reading!


6. Taupe

Taupe is a bit of a shapeshifter… it’s kind of grey but a little bit almost nude and a little tan, but it is cool-toned. And whether you go for a light or dark taupe, they all work with cooler grey dresses.

7. Silver

Silver is essentially grey with a bit more bling and can take your style up a notch for a formal event, an evening out on the town or to just inject a little unexpected shimmer to a more casual grey dress.

Though there are different shades and tones of silver, silver tends to be more on the cooler side. Just make sure that your grey dress is also a cool grey if you want to go with silver shoes. They look equally stunning with both light and dark grey dresses.

8. Champagne

Have a warm toned grey dress, but want a little shimmer? Champagne is your go-to.

Unlike silver, champagne is a warmer color that can range from more of a light peach to a rose gold. And all of them look amazing with warm grey dresses.
