Like every other color, including black, orange comes in a variety of shades.

What color shoes to wear with an orange dress will depend on the shade of orange in question.

Then again, orange is one of those colors that you wear for fun. So you can really wear just about any color as long as you do it right. We’ve seen ladies wearing yellow shoes with an orange dress, purple shoes with an orange dress and even green shoes with an orange dress. And the combinations looked perfectly fine to us.

We love this April 2014 look from self-professed “sewing enthusiast” Susanna Vesna. Susanna is wearing a gorgeous orange asymmetric dress from the H&M Conscious Collection (same as dress being worn by Malinina-ek above). Unlike Malinina-ek’s choice to wear her dress with turquoise converse sneakers, Susanna chose to wear hers with a pair of black heels from Zara. We love the black cuffs, the gold-tone earrings and the multi-color beaded clutch she used to accessorize and accentuate her look.
