What Color Shoes for Rose Gold Dress Outfits
1. Beige Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
Keep it sophisticated and simple by pairing your rose gold dress with beige shoes. Beige is one of the best colors for shoes to wear with a rose gold dress because it matches perfectly with the color, regardless of the style of the dress you’ve decided to wear.
It’s the kind of color that looks great on all skin tones and is, by far, the most subtle and neutral shade to wear with various rose gold dress outfit ideas. You can choose from various shoe styles, such as mesh heels, block heels, or lace-up heels.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: Once you’ve selected the perfect shoes to wear with your outfit, it’s time to select the purse and jewelry to wear with rose gold dresses and beige shoes.
A white, off-white, beige, or black purse would be great for contrast, pairing well with the beautiful rose gold hue and the neutral shade of beige.
When selecting the jewelry, stick with warm metallics, such as traditional yellow gold or rose gold, both of which will pair well without clashing.

2. Rose Gold or Gold Shoes
If you don’t have a pair of beautiful beige shoes to wear with your rose gold outfits, you always have the option of wearing rose gold or traditional gold shoes.
These shoes add a touch of elegance to the outfit and pair well because of their sophisticated appearance.
From chunky heels to slingback heels, there are plenty of great pieces that will look great while taking your outfit to that next level to give you that sultry, sexy aesthetic.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: A white, beige, black, or even burgundy purse would look great and offer contrast, with burgundy adding a slight pop of color to the ensemble.
Choose warmer metallics for your jewelry, including gold and rose gold, or choose to create contrast by wearing silver jewels with your dress.

3. Silver Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
Who says silver doesn’t go with rose gold? There is a tinge of silver in a rose gold dress, after all! The right pair of silver heels, such as an open-toe option, would look great when worn with a rose gold dress.
I love a more minimal metallic silver shoe with a rose gold dress, such as an ankle strap high heel sandal or pointy toe stiletto pump.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: You can pair the shoes and dress with a purse in a shade of white, black, or silver that perfectly matches.
Be sure to match the jewelry to the shoes by choosing to wear silver, especially if you’re planning to carry a silver purse around with you. If you’re not holding a silver purse, you can wear rose gold jewelry that would match the dress.

4. Gold Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
Of course, as I've already said, rose gold is a mix of metallic gold and light pink. That means that gold shoes with a rose gold dress outfit will go great!
I love metallic strappy heeled sandals for a formal look, with stiletto of block heels. However, pointed stiletto pumps and even tight leather gold booties can look amazing for fancy outfits. It really depends on the look you're going for.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: If you’re wearing gold shoes with a rose gold dress, opt for a white, beige, or matching gold purse to go with it. You can also add some contrast by pairing a burgundy or black clutch with the look.

5. White Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
When you’re wondering what color shoes to wear with rose gold dresses, white is always an option. It’s one color that allows you to play it safe, but brighten your outfit at the same time.
You have the option of choosing from several shades of white, including traditional white, off-white, or patent white in a matte or smooth finish.
If you’re attending a glam soirée and want to make a statement with your shoes, be sure to wear a white sparkly heel that pairs perfectly and draws attention to your style.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: If you’re wearing white shoes with a rose gold dress, be sure to choose a white, beige, or gold purse to go with it.
When selecting jewelry, gold, rose gold, or even dark silver jewels would look great with both the dress and shoes you’re wearing.

6. Blush Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
When you want to make less of a stylish statement – but more so than with beige heels – you have the option of wearing blush shoes with a rose gold dress.
These shoes have a sophisticated touch and are available in different finishes, including a smooth satin-like texture or a more matte appearance. I love a blush patent blush heels with a rose gold dress, but a matte in suede or semi-matte option like leather works well too.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: In addition to the color of the shoes, be sure to pair the outfit with a white, off-white, beige, or burgundy purse. Add some warm metallics, such as gold or rose gold, to finish the look.

7. Black Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
If you have more of a bold style, feel free to wear black shoes with your rose gold dress. Black heels will look amazing with any rose gold dress you decide to wear.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: You can match your purse with your shoes by choosing a black color or stick with a lighter shade, such as white or burgundy.
When it comes to jewelry, anything goes. You can choose wear some warm metallics or even a bit of cool silver-toned jewelry. Because these shoes are more forgiving, you don’t have to worry about your jewelry clashing with your dress and shoes.

8. Burgundy Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
A pair of burgundy pumps or open-toe burgundy heels would look amazing with a rose gold dress. The two colors pair well together and allow you to show off your incredible sense of style while attending special events.
You can choose a chunky platform pair to create more contrast with your dress, or even a shiny burgundy shoe. My favorite deep red or burgundy shoes? Velvet strappy platforms! You can even opt for wearing red shoes that are deep-hued, if your rose gold dress is darker, like the middle dress pictured above.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: When selecting a purse for the dress and shoes, choose white, black, or beige, all of which will look great. In addition, the best jewelry to wear with the outfit would be gold or sparkly jewelry that stands out and makes a statement.

9. Clear Heels with a Rose Gold Dress
Clear heels take nude shoes to a new level and are an absolute fashion statement. These heels are amazing because they offer more of an element of surprise because they’re an unexpected combo yet they look great with rose gold.
Because you’re choosing clear heels with transparent straps, try something like clear pumps, kitten heels, or two-strap slides with or without added rhinestones.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: Grab a white, black, or blush purse to pair with the outfit and shoes. You can also get a purse that has matching details like the shoes do.
Keep the jewelry in warm tones with shades of gold and rose gold. If your shoes have sparkles on them, you can wear silver jewelry with the outfit.

10. Brown Shoes with a Rose Gold Dress
While it’s true that brown shoes can make any outfit look more casual, these types of shoes work best when the brown matches your skin tone, especially when composed of sparkly or patent leather.
However, no matter what your leg hue, you'll look fab in dark espresso-brown shoes. Especially if they are a minimal, barely-there sandal – always my fave! A glossy finish will make your brown heels far less casual.
Purse & Jewelry Styling Tip: Pair these shoes with a black, brown, blush, or burgundy purse and some warm-toned jewelry, such as rose gold or traditional gold necklaces, earrings, and more.
