So far in answering the question “What color shoes to wear with blue dress?”

We’ve listed as the colors that would be pretty safe to wear:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Nude/beige/tan
  • Gold metallic
  • Silver metallic
  • White

But like we said, whatever color you think looks good with your blue dress is the color you should wear…

However, keep in mind that taking fashion risks requires being very secure in yourself. Because people will often criticize the way you look if they think you’re wearing something that breaks the unwritten fashion rules. So if you want to try some of the less safe color of shoes that some people have worn with their blue dress, make sure you have the confidence to wear what you want to wear without concern for what people think.
