What Color Shoes Should You Wear with a Black Dress

The color of your heels is one of the most important things to consider when getting ready for an event. Choosing the right shoe color can take the outfit from average to great. Years ago, “rules” were set in place that stipulate that wearing black and brown shoes would be inappropriate. That rule has since been put to rest and it’s now up to personal preference. In this article I will share 10 ideas for what color shoes match a black dress.

What Color Matches with a Black Dress

Black is a very versatile color that can match with just about everything. Black is a color that can look good on any person. But there are some colors that are better when paired with black. Gold, silver, white and pink colored accessories can always match a black dress, as well as a red dress, blush dress or royal blue dress.

What Color Bag to Wear with a Black Dress

What color bag should you wear with a black dress? The color of the bag depends on the event. For a formal event, a white or silver clutch would be appropriate. If you want to add a pop of color, choose a bright blue clutch for an evening out on the town. A little black dress can make any bag look glamorous and chic, but if you want to play up your outfit, go for something that matches that will accentuate your outfit even more.

The color of your bag can oftentimes match the color of the shoes worn with a black dress. There are many colors to choose from when it comes to the right bag that will compliment your dress- black, silver, gold and nude.
