Colors that go with coral dress

When combining colors in clothes, we need to take a look at the color chart, although there are many options to choose from. To make it simple, these are colors that will look good to accessorise a coral dress, though there are other things you should take into account.

  • Light grey
  • Aqua green
  • Yellow
  • Pink
  • Navy blue
  • Mint green
  • Gold
  • White
  • Black
  • Plum purple
  • Nude

However, the amount of each color you use with a coral dress is very important, and color coordination is advised especially when you want to combine more than two colors. In general, you can use another bright color in two accessories and combine them with a third more neutral colors such as white, nude, grey or black.

What to wear with a coral dress at a wedding

As this is a pretty common color to wear at a wedding, whether you are a guest or a bridesmaid, we're going to show you what to wear with a coral dress at a wedding, and then move on to more casual accessorising.

In such an occasion, we'd advise you to be cautious and not go for brighter colors to combine with a coral dress. This is why the best choice in our opinion is to go for nude shoes and leave metallic colors such as gold or silver for discreet jewelry.

If it is a morning wedding and want to wear hair accessories, we advise you to combine the accessory with the color of your handbag or clutch, which can range from gold, white, grey to a subtle tinge of aqua blue.

If it's getting cold or need something to cover up for the church ceremony, we advise you to combine your coral dress with a pachmina in the same tone of coral. You can also go for a light grey color or chocolate brown too.

What colour jacket to wear with coral dress

Whichever jackets and accessories you choose, one of the best colors to match coral is coral itself. You can opt for a total look in that color, giving hints of coral in your makeup or accessories.

A black and white striped or patterned jacket or open blazer is also a great option for office wear, classy but not too boring.

If not, the coral works well with brown and beige tones. Beige is a neutral color that does not eclipse the star of your outfit, your coral dress.

If you want to give your coral dress a more casual style, you can also mix it with denim. A denim jacket will make your dress look much more modern and give you a younger look.

Jewelry for a coral dress

Other colours that match the color are the aqua green, turquoise, fuchsia or purple. These colors are also very trendy and allow very daring combinations. A chunky aqua green necklace is a great accessory if your dress is basic and will give you that extra character you need. You can also combine this color with golden accessories.

Basic colors like white or black are always safe options and will make you look expensive, even on a budget. You can combine them with any other color above to give an extra touch.

And when it comes to accessories a good solution that goes with a coral dress is gold. Try wearing a long and simple golden necklace or pendent and a couple of chunky, golden bangles. You'll look flawless!

The perfect handbag for your coral dress will depend entirely on the rest of your accessories. Go for metal colors if you're wearing gold or silver or neutral colors if this is what you're wearing.

Hi Lisa
We always recommend wearing light brown heels or sandals with a flowing coral dress. And a light long black jacket should work too!
