If you’re looking for a shoe to go with your rust dress, you might be thinking of brown shoes. But what if you want something more exciting than the typical taupe or camel color?
We’ve got two excellent suggestions: white and black. Both of these colors will contrast nicely with the rust hue of your dress. For example, you could wear white shoes to bring out the contrast between the rust dress and white shoes. Or, if you’re looking for something more bold, try black shoes with an edgy design that complements your outfit well.

What color shoes go with orange?
What color accessories do I need to pair with my orange dress?
If you want to maintain a neutral color palette, then you should pair your orange dress with black shoes. This simple combination is always stylish and classy. You can also go for brown or tan shoes, if you want to add more contrast to the outfit. But keep in mind that if you wear brown shoes with an orange dress, it will look better when paired with tan accessories.
If you want to add some color contrast to your outfit, then it’s best to pair your orange dress with red-toned accessories like red shoes or handbag. Other good options are green or blue accessories because they complement each other well and create a great harmony between the two colors in the outfit. However, avoid wearing black accessories with an orange dress as they tend to look too dark and dull on this particular color palette
The first thing to do is to determine the color of your dress. If it is orange, then you will have a lot of options in your wardrobe. You can wear anything from black to red, green and blue. The best way to match your shoes with your outfit is to choose the shoe color that is similar to the color of your dress.
You can also try mixing different shades of orange in one outfit. For instance, if you are wearing a burnt orange colored outfit, then you can go for burgundy or copper colored shoes.
If you are wearing a bright orange colored dress, then try wearing shoes that are made of metallic materials like gold or silver which will make them look shining and eye-catching.
If you want to wear heels with an orange dress then make sure that they are not too high because otherwise they might ruin the whole look of your outfit
6 favorite shoe colors to wear with an orange dress or any orange-hued outfit.
Shoes to Wear with an Orange Dress
1. Gold Shoes with an Orange Dress
Gold is so so pretty with orange, whether light or dark rust colored! That’s why I picked gold shoes as one of my favorite metallics with an orange outfit.
It’s still a neutral & warm tone like the dress, but it’s festive & adds an element of interest to the outfit. Also, I really love gold anything
Purse Styling Tip: Your best choice is a beige or black purse here. However, purple could look quite fun, depending on if you’re wearing a plain orange dress (yes) or not (yes, if purple’s another color in the dress, otherwise, not).
2. Purple Shoes with Orange Dresses
Unexpected & a perfect complement to orange, purple is a great shoe choice. It’s no coincidence that orange is a great color shoes to wear with purple dresses!
Not only will it contrast beautifully with your outfit, but you’ll be the most originally dressed gal at the party (while showing your styling know-how to all!).
I prefer a deeper purple vs. a lavender shoe myself. However, light purple shoes with an orange dress can look fab!
Purse Styling Tip: Because you’re already wearing two bright colours, keep a neutral purse on hand. Quite literally
3. Nude Blush or Beige Shoes with an Orange Dress
Easily my favorite orange outfit & shoe color combo is beige or blush! If beige is your “nude” like it is mine, even better.
That’s because it will elongate your legs & allow the brightness of the dress to speak for itself.
Beige not your nude? Not a problem! It will still look fab, but if you want a leg-lengthening effect, pair your orange dress with the nude for you (maybe from Louboutin’s New Nudes collection?) and you’re good to go!
Purse Styling Tip: Because beige or skin tone shoes are so neutral, you can go for a contrasting purse in, say, a purple (my fave). Easily pair it with a black, white or a metallic handbag too.
4. Black Shoes with an Orange Dress
Black color footwear is certainly what I’d consider the color shoes that goes with everything! And of course, it looks amazing with black. Almost any shade of an orange dress or outfit, black shoes will look great.
That being said if the outfit is purely pumpkin orange, well, with black shoes you might end up looking like you’re dressing for a Halloween theme, so watch out for that! So I do recommend black shoes with more rust or salmon colored frocks.
Purse Styling Tip: Match your orange dress with black shoes with a white or metallic purse. You can have fun with a contrasting pink purse for fun! Avoid a green handbag at all costs – again, you don’t want to look like a pumpkin!
5. Red Shoes with an Orange Dress
Funny enough, I would usually tell someone to avoid wearing red shoes with orange dresses. Had I not seen the dress or shoes, of course!
Now, because this peachy orange dress is multi-colored and has pink and beige in it, a primarily red shoe with pink, gold & beige looks rather good. That’s why red footwear is one of the color shoes to wear with brown dresses that I also suggest.
And yes, pink shoes would have worked well with this dress too
Purse Styling Tip: I’d remain neutral when you’ve got a colored dress & shoe happening at the same time. That way, it doesn’t call too much attention to itself & allows the shoes & outfit to shine.
6. Brown Shoes with an Orange Dress
I chose brown as my 5th shoe color choice for an orange outfit, because not only does it works as a visual pairing, but it is such a coveted accessory color at the moment.
Keep in mind that brown shoes with pretty much any dress or outfit (unless it’s glittery brown) are going to make your outfit more casual.
Especially with a pair of fringe sandals like the ones pictured in the photos above.
Purse Styling Tip: Beige, white or gold are your best purse choices with this combination.
