what color shoes work best with a green dress

There are so many different shades of green that the question “What color shoes works best with a green dress” would probably need to be more specific and identify what shade of green is meant. While some of the colors that work best with green dresses work with all shades of green, there are other colors that won’t necessarily be the best choice for a particular shade of green.

Let’s talk shades of green

Apple green Artichoke Asparagus Avocado Bright green
Cal Poly green Chartreuse Dark green Dark olive green Dark spring green
Dartmouth green Fern green Forest green Green Green-yellow
Harlequin Honeydew Hunter green India green Islamic green
Jungle green Lawn green Lime Lime green Mantis
Mint Mint cream Office green Olive Olive drab
Pakistan green Paris green Persian green Phthalo green Pigment green
Pine green Pistachio Sea green Shamrock green Spring bud
Spring green Teal Yellow-green

The chart listed above (found via wikipedia) is said to cover all varieties and shades of colors resembling green. You can see that some of the shades are very similar, at least according to the chart. Mint and honeydew are barely discernibly different. Teal and pine green look very similar. As do “green-yellow” and “spring bud”, and a number of other pairs of colors on the chart.

Nude shoes generally tend to work well with a wide variety of shades of green dresses.

These Jimmy Choo nude sandals ($775) would be a great choice for a dress in a shade similar to the ROLAND MOURET Sesia Sheath Dress ($2213). A nude bag, such as the bisque leather Nolita tote from Salvatore Ferragamo ($900.94), and some gold accessories add a nice finishing touch.

If your green dress is a yellow green color like this MSGM Crocheted Shift Dress ($571.31), silver metallic shoes would go nicely with your dress. Try a nice pair of sandals like the Saint Laurent ‘Classic Tribute 105’ sandals ($1,153.71) in silver tone leather. If you need a jacket for your dress try a nice white blazer like the Victoria Beckham pristine wool blazer ($2,795.00) shown above. A silver metallic bag such as the White and silver-tone leather ‘3Jours’ tote from Fendi ($2244.85), and silver accessories complete the look.

If you want to play it safe, you can almost never go wrong with black. Black is a color that works with almost anything and it certainly works with green. Some might suggest black is the #1 best color choice for shoes to wear with a green dress. Google the question “What color shoes works best with a green dress?” and you’re bound to find black at or near the top of any list.

White is another good choice for what color shoes works best with a green dress. White shoes are tricky. You can’t just throw them on and run, even when you’re wearing them with compatible color clothing. You have to properly accessorize otherwise your white shoes can be totally distracting and not necessarily in a good way.

The green graphic print Mary Katrantzou Bomfared Dress ($770.19) is shown with a pair of white strappy stiletto sandals from Gianvito Rossi ($960.32). To balance things out a little bit I’ve added an Optic white leather ‘Jet Set’ trapeze tote from Michael Michael Kors ($477.38). Between the graphic print on the dress and the strappy style of the shoes there’s already enough going on with the outfit so I’ve kept the accessories to a minimum with a sterling silver SMITHY CUFFS hammered bangle bracelet and a silver-toned ‘Cage’ choker from Balenciaga ($695).

Wrapping it up…

What color shoes works best with a green dress?

Everyone has their own personal style. Some people mix and match colors that the rest of us wouldn’t. That doesn’t make them crazy and make us sane. It just makes us different people. So if someone wears red shoes with a green dress and they think red shoes work best with a green dress, their opinion isn’t wrong. You can’t have right or wrong when you’re talking about opinion. All you can have is different.

I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so.
