Choosing The Right Shoes

The first thing you need to think about is the kind of silver shoes you’re going to be wearing, as this will impact the whole outfit.

You want the sophistication of your footwear to be on par with that of the dress you’re wearing.

For instance, if you are going to wear flip-flops or flat shoes, you should wear them with a day dress or pants rather than an evening gown. The same goes for the other way around.

Because silver is such a brilliant and dramatic tone, you will want to avoid accessorizing your outfit with other accessories that are equally loud, such as a belt with a prominent buckle.

What Colors Go Best With Silver?

White and off-white hues look stunning when paired with silver. White jeans, slacks, skirts, or cotton dresses will all look appropriate if you are going for a more casual style and wearing silver shoes. 

Silver-heeled sandals are an excellent choice to make if you are going to be attending a formal event wearing a white or off-white dress.

Black is another hue that is versatile and goes well with almost any other color, including silver. Black, as opposed to white, will produce higher contrast and result in a more striking appearance.

Other colors that look great with silver shoes are deep purple, burgundy, vivid red, light gray, charcoal gray, and light gray.

Choose colors that are darker in tone when the weather is cool and colors that are lighter or more pastel when the weather is warm.

When wearing silver shoes, it is preferable to go with a single block color rather than a design or pattern. Make sure that these colorful shoes are the focal point of your ensemble.

Do’s And Don’ts When Wearing Silver Shoes


  • Do choose a plain color as opposed to one with a design or pattern when wearing silver shoes. Make sure that these colorful shoes are the focal point of your ensemble.
  • Do add smaller accessories to the outfit. Use belts and handbags that are small and muted in color, and make sure they match the color of your attire.
  • Do experiment with your clothing options. Don’t be afraid to try out new colors and develop your sense of style. Solid earth tones, such as burnt orange or deep green, are a color palette that can never go wrong. Their dark tones provide the ideal counterpoint to the metallic sheen.


  • Don’t add too many metallic colors. The clashing hues are just too much to handle, therefore you should probably steer clear of wearing gold apparel with silver shoes. Additionally, matching silver accessories and footwear is unnecessary and should be avoided if at all possible.
  • Don’t over-accessorize. The shoes already contribute a significant amount of brightness to the ensemble on their own, so there is no need to add any additional accessories that draw attention to themselves, such as a bright large metallic purse or a belt that makes a statement.
