Shoes for a formal occasion

In addition to being trendy, green allows you to play with a nice range of colors to create the most suitable looks for every occasion. However, depending on the type of dress it is (straight cut, asymmetrical, shirt, mini, etc.) it will be better to combine with one type of shoe or another.

Let's start with how to wear a green dress with high heels:

Heeled sandals

Whatever your dress may be, if you want to wear it for a special event (baptisms, communions, weddings, parties, etc.) it is best to resort to high-heeled sandals to complete your look. This type of shoe is elegant and very versatile, and will undoubtedly bring out your most feminine side. Black, silver or copper sandals are the best for this occasion.

Platform shoes

Wedges and platforms are a very good option, because in addition to creating an elegant and fresh combination, they are a more comfortable and practical option than the previous one. We recommend betting on simple platforms that are not the center of attention of the entire outfit, since the interesting component is the dress.

Although you can wear platforms with any green dress, we recommend avoiding them if the dress is very short as it looks best with long dresses.

Peep toes nude

If you consider yourself discreet, the best way to wear a green dress is with nude tones. In this way, you will achieve that the main focus is your dress and that your legs appear more elongated, adding a few more centimeters to your figure. These shoes are perfect for short dresses, for cocktail outfits or even for office looks. They do not fail!

Black, gold or silver t-strap shoes

Green and gold or silver? Both are great combinations! These two options are ideal if you want to go to a celebration or a party with an attractive and sophisticated look that makes the color of your dress stand out more. However, we cannot forget that black is still the best color when it comes to combining green, since it achieves a sophisticated, mature and elegant look better than any other color combination.

Shoes for a casual outfit

Now let's take a look at what to wear with a green dress for a causal outfit:


Boots and ankle boots are undoubtedly a great way to combine your green dresses for a casual outfit. If the dress is a similar to a shirt, for example, don't hesitate to go for some cowboy boots. If it is a tighter and shorter dress, brown or black boots, or even high boots, will be a very casual and unique look. We'll show you some outfits below to inspire you!

Flat sandal

Flat sandals are a basic that cannot be missing in your summer wardrobe. In addition to being comfortable, they are an excellent option to wear with your favourite green dress when the temperatures begin to rise. If the dress is a blouse or shirt dress, flats or sandals can be your best ally, since you will not need more than a couple of accessories to complete the look.

Sports shoes

Combining a dress with sneakers is the latest trend. So, why not do it with a green dress? In this case, we encourage you to try it out with white or black sneakers as they are a safe color combination and will help you create an informal and comfortable look for any occasion.

Accessories for a green dress

When choosing accessories to wear with a green dress you'll have plenty of choices. However, since green is such a striking and unusual color, we have to be careful when choosing footwear and accessories, because we do not want anything to go against the color of the dress. Here are our tips for choosing how to accessorize a green dress:

When in doubt, opt for black accessories

Black and green are great allies, so choosing accessories in this color will give you an elegant and sophisticated look. It is not the most original combination, however, if you prefer not to risk it, it is best to bet on a black bag, shoes and belt, especially to create a casual look.

Gold and silver jewellery for more finesse

If, on the contrary, you want an elegant outfit for a formal event, go for silver or gold accessories. With that being said, you should not overload the outfit with a lot of gold or silver. Keep it simple and elegant. You can also opt for a handbag of a similar tone so all your accessories align.

Go for nude accessories for a sweet look

Nude tones are a classic when choosing what to wear with a green dress, especially when choosing high heels. However, to make the outfit sweeter, we advise you to add some more colorful accessories in other nude shades. Go for a nude headband, a light brown bag or rose gold earrings.

Bold colors with green

If you love a bold outfit, opt for another bright color when choosing what accessories to wear. Bright pink, yellow or purple will go great with green. Have a look below to see how these women styled their green dress outfit.
