However, the best way to accessorize a green dress really depends on the shade of green and the overall style of the dress. If your green dress is bold and eye-catching, then you may want to consider pairing it with a more subtle shoe color like black or nude.

This outfit is also perfect for a more mature wedding guest outfit.

If you’re looking for a subtly sexy outfit for your next date night, why not try a green dress with brown shoes? The colors complement each other perfectly while still providing a pop of personality. You can wear this outfit with confidence knowing that you look good! And, since brown is such a versatile color, you can easily mix and match different pieces to create different looks. For example, try pairing the dress with a brown cardigan for a more casual look or add some sparkle with a shiny gold purse instead. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to feel confident and sexy in this outfit.

Finding the perfect dress to wear out can be a daunting task. If you’re looking for a great green dress that will stand out from the crowd, check out this option with gold shoes. The dress is figure-flattering and will make you look elegant and sophisticated. Plus, the gold shoes add a touch of glamour that will make you feel like a celebrity.

4. Green Dress with Animal Print Shoes
If you want to make a statement with your outfit, go for a green dress with animal print shoes. An orange handbag will really stand out and complete the look. I love how this outfit looks so pulled together, yet can still stand out from the crowd. This outfit can be worn to a brunch celebration, a garden party, or wine tasting.
5. Green Dress with Pink Shoes
If you want to add a splash of color to your outfit, go with a light green dress and pink shoes. This combination is perfect for a flirty and fun look. The light green color will brighten up any outfit, while the pink shoes add a pop of color. You can wear this combination for any occasion, but I especially love it for a vacation look, a date night, or a girls’ brunch. The colors can also work for a spring baby or wedding shower. The white purse keeps the outfit light, and lets the shoes and dress take center stage. You can add a white denim jacket to dress it down for a more casual look with a dress.
6. Green Dress with Silver Shoes
For a unique and elegant look, consider pairing a green dress with silver shoes. Silver shoes can add a touch of glamour to any outfit, and they pair perfectly with green dresses (as well as almost any other color). You can find silver shoes in many different styles, so you’re sure to find the perfect pair for your dress. Whether you’re looking for something simple and understated or something flashy and glamorous, silver shoes will always make you look stylish. I love the pairing of sparkly accessories to match the shiny texture of this dress. This outfit is perfect for prom or an evening event.
7. Green Dress with Black Shoes
Green is a color that can be both understated and elegant at the same time. A green dress with black shoes can create a look that is both classy and timeless. This combination can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. This outfit will always make you look polished and put together. I love the lace on these black shoes so that they look anything but basic. While this green dress is more simpler and plain, it allows you to really play with the accessories to bring that extra bling factor.
8. Green Dress with Nude Shoes
With so many options out there for shoes, handbags, and jewelry, there are many outfit combinations that can be created. A green dress with nude shoes is a perfect casual outfit for any day of the week. The green dress can be any style, and the nude shoes can be heels, flats, or sandals. You might want to try a pair of white boots with a green dress, as well. This combination is perfect for spring or summer weather. It is also a great look for a casual day at work or school. I love these open toe booties for a transitional look to spring or summer. Add a chunky knit cardigan if you need an extra layer. This look is perfect for wearing to work, or meeting up with some friends.
9. Green Dress with White Shoes
If you’re looking for a great outfit for a brunch, consider a green dress with white heels or white boots. This is a classic look that always looks stylish. You can wear almost any color of shoes with a green dress, but white is a great complementary color. A green dress with white shoes is perfect for any spring or summer event. Since the shoes are white, I chose a handbag in a more non-traditional color and texture such as this shiny orange purse. It adds a pop of color, and goes really well with the light green color of this dress. A white denim jacket could also be added to this outfit for summer.
10. Green Dress with Gold Shoes

Whether you’re attending a wedding or another formal event, this combination is sure to turn heads.
11. Green Dress with Orange Shoes
If you’re looking for a fun and playful look, consider pairing a green dress with orange shoes. The two colors complement each other well, and the bright combination is sure to catch everyone’s attention.
