PART 1: Neutral Shoe Shades with Black Dresses
As go-to color shoes to wear with black dresses, neutral shades can’t be beat due to 2 main factors:
We have a high likelihood of having them in our closets alreadyThey’re a stylish no-nonesense pairing with black outfits
Below are my favorites:
1. Black Dress With Nude Shoes / Beige Shoes
Black dress nude shoes? Yes please! One of my go-to shoe colors to pair with (almost) any colour dress is nude (whatever that means for you) and beige. Rose gold works just as well. Because when your shoes match your skin tone, it will elongate your legs while allowing your dress to take centre stage.
Beige and blush shoe shades are also extremely flattering, no matter what your skin color. And they are more subdued than, say, wearing a bright white, or even off white pair of heels.
Shop Nude Shoes, Blush Shoes:
2. Black Dress with Silver Shoes & Metallics
Shop Gold Shoes:
Yes, metallics is a neutral in my eyes, especially when it comes to silver.But don’t discount gold or rose gold metallic hues which do well when paired with similar colored jewelry or handbags.
Metallic shoes (especially silver!) are a surefire answer to the “what color shoes to wear with navy dresses” question too. The little stilleto’d strappy number by Chinese Laundry from Nordstrom has been favourite of my reader’s this season & is priced at under $100!
3. Black Shoes
Black on black on black on…(well you get my drift!) never goes out of style. It’s a chic pairing for an easy yet chic office look, or a glam cocktail way to dress. You can play with textures & materials here to have more fun with your black shoes. Try a reptile embossed pump, patent sandal or velvet brogues to add more interest to your black dress with black shoes outfit.

4. Black Dress White Shoes
A black dress with white shoes give a starkcontrast for those who prefer to keep things monochrome. Best of all, white shoes pair perfectly with pretty much any other dress color, so a definite must for any woman’s shoe closet!

7. Bright, Colorful shoes with a Black Dress
One of my fave suggestions when asked the “what color shoes with black dress es work best” is definitely color! And the brigher the better! You can even go for a satin or high shine patent version of a bright color to be that much extra. Or, if you want to add some color but don’t want to be too flashy about it, burgundy shoes will add less playful, but very sophisticated touch to your black dress or outfit.
Shop Colorful Shoes:
I hope by reading this post I’ve inspired you to try different color shoes with a black dress. Although black is fairly easy to style, the shoe color (and style!) you select can impact your whole black dress or black outfit look.
