Pink is a chic and feminine color but not the easiest to coordinate. To help you out, we’ve put together the best color shoes to wear with a light pink dress.

Who doesn’t love pink? Even if super feminine dressing isn’t your taste, there are some occasions when nothing is more fitting than a pink dress. Though it adds a pop of color to your look, it’s understated at the same time, making it perfect for formal occasions, and it is a very popular evening gown color.

Particularly as we head into the peak of summer, pink is going to be the perfect choice for party season. Whether for a casual look, cocktail party, baby shower, wedding, or any other special occasion – a pink dress will carry you through all occasions seamlessly.

[Hopefully] you’ve got the dress, but deciding on the shoes can be the difficult part. Luckily, you have us at your disposal, who have come up with our top 10 shoe colors to wear with a pink dress to ensure you’ll be the belle of the ball.

The Best Shoe Colors To Wear With A Pink Dress

1. Nude Shoes

Nude shoes are a great option to pair with a light pink dress because they help create a subtle and timeless look. Be mindful of choosing a nude color close to your skin tone to blend in and give the illusion of longer legs!

This is a great option for a formal occasion like a wedding guest look or baby shower outfit, where you must look understated during the day while being put together. You can play around with the color of your accessories; either go for a pop of color like a bright pink clutch or a neutral color bag to tone down the overall look and suit your personal style.

Metallic shoes, such as gold and silver a great option if you want to add a little glamour to your light pink or blush pink dress.

Gold is a great idea for the summer months as the warm tones in the gold and pink create an irresistible, gorgeous summer look. Silver shoes can really pop against your light pink dress to create a stunning outfit that is perfect for a special occasion. Make sure to pick accessories and jewelry that match your gold or silver shoes to tie the whole look together.

3. White Shoes

For a sleeker and more sophisticated look, we suggest a pair of white shoes. This could be white heeled sandals or pumps if you want a more elevated look or try flat sandals, sneakers, or ballet pumps with a casual blush pink summer dress for relaxed weekends or days on vacation.

There are so many different white shoes to choose from too, including lots of embellished options that can add glamour to a simple light pink dress or minimalist pumps for a polished look.

4. Burgundy Shoes

Burgundy and cherry red have been the hottest colors of the year, and if you love the hue, you’re in luck as they look amazing when paired with a pink dress.

These two colors have warm, red undertones yet contrast each other to create a stunning look. Go for a sophisticated and chic blush pink or light pink dress then style with burgundy heels, whether that is strappy sandals, heeled mules, or glossy burgundy pumps. Accessorise with a burgundy bag and gold jewelry to complete the gorgeous look.

5. Green Shoes

Green is opposite to pink on the color wheel, making these two colors the perfect combination if you want a striking and eye-catching look.

We think darker green tones, rich emeralds, and pastel greens look best with the soft, feminine blush and light pink tones – so make sure to pick the right green shoes! Green sneakers are a fantastic option if you are on your feet all day but still want to look on trend, while green strappy heels would look great with a light pink dress for a summer wedding.

6. Red Shoes

Pink and red sometimes can be seen as a clashing color combination, but if you pair them together in the right way, you can create a fashionable and irresistible look that is bound to get you plenty of compliments.

Red sneakers and cowboy boots are great options that look incredible with blush pink mini and midi dresses, while a pair of red pointed-toe pumps poking out the bottom of a blush pink maxi dress is a guaranteed strikingly stylish look.

7. Blush Shoes

Go for a sophisticated and refined tonal look by styling your light pink dress with blush pink shoes. This is an effortless combination that is guaranteed to create a stylish and chic look – whether that is for casual weekends or glamorous events.

Blush pink sneakers or ballet pumps would look incredible with a light pink summer dress, while blush pink pumps are perfect if you want to look a little more elevated and glamorous. Add a blush pink handbag to complete the tonal outfit.

8. Yellow Shoes

Yellow and pink are one of our favorite color combinations for the summer months – but you have to make sure you pick the right yellow tones.

With a light pink or blush pink dress, go for a pastel or buttery yellow tones as anything too bright and florescent will not pair harmoniously with the lighter, softer pink tone. Buttery yellow slingbacks, sandals, mules, or even sneakers for a more casual look will look incredible with any blush pink outfit and just scream summer – what more could you want?!

9. Hot Pink Shoes

Stick to the same color family by pairing hot pink shoes with your blush pink dress. Similar to burgundy and red, hot pink has the same undertones as blush pink and therefore is a great option to style with a light pink or blush pink dress, especially with a glamorous or formal look.

A blush pink dress with hot pink pumps or heeled sandals is a perfect combination if you are heading to a party, special occasion, or wedding. Finish off the look with a hot pink bag.

10. Black Shoes

Black is a failsafe option when you are not sure what color shoes to go for, but make sure you go for the right style of black shoes!

Stick to more delicate and subtle pumps, strappy heeled sandals, and flat sandals with your blush pink dress, as opposed to black platform heels, sneakers, or ballet pumps which make look a little chunky and out of place with a soft, feminine, and dainty blush pink dress. Glossy black heels always look amazing with a blush pink dress for a glamorous look or go for delicate strappy flat sandals with a summer dress on vacation.
