What Color Shoes with a Light Blue Dress? 9 Styling Tips!

If you’ve ever wondered what color shoes go with a light blue dress, you’ve come to the right place!

ShoeTease is the destination for all that is shoe and dress styling, after all 😉

What Color Shoes To Wear with a Light Blue Dress:

In previous posts I’ve covered a slew of purse, shoe and dress combos, such as what color shoes to wear with navy dresses. But today, let’s focus on what color shoes work best with a light blue, powder blue, baby blue, ice blue or sky blue dress. Or whatever color the kids are calling it these days!!

I’ll be handing out helpful tips on how to choose accessories for your light blue dress with the right shoes, jewelry & purses for all sorts of occasions, including bridesmaid styling!

Light blue dresses make picture perfect bridesmaid dresses, look fab for cocktail parties & are the perfect tea party look! There are so many types of baby blue dresses to choose from. From satin dresses, to floral number to pretty lace frocks and more.

And which shoe color to choose when putting together your pastel blue dress outfit is a combo of 2 things: a mix of personal preference & which occasion you’ll be wearing it too. Wearing a light jean dress? See my post outlining what shoes to wear with denim dresses.

You can find some great designer light blue dress styles from Net-a-Porter, or more affordable ones at Nordstrom that you can purchase below:

Shop Light Blue Dresses:

1. Light Blue Dress with Silver Shoes

Shop Silver Shoes:

A light blue dress with silver shoes is one of my fave dress-to-shoe combinations. The cool tones in the shoes match perfectly with the cool hue of the pastel blue dress. It creates a breezy, effortless look that’s anything but boring.

You can choose matte or shiny metallic silver shoes with your baby blue dress. A shiny silver shoe will be more glam in addition to making more of a fashion statement!

I would definitely consider these strappy “Lorain” silver heels from Nordstrom that are currently 40% off. If you’re looking for a closed-toe option, these silver pumps designed by J. Reneé also from Nordstrom are a popular choice for my readers. 

The great thing about pairing a silver pair of shoes with a light blue dress? You’ve not got one of the most versatile shoe colors to dress up any other dress color, including a navy dress!

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips: I would match my silver shoes with silver jewelry. As a purse choice, I would opt for white, black or purple if you’re feeling la-di-da! A yellow clutch could look really fun too, if pops of color are your thing!

2. Light Blue Dress and Gold Shoes

Shop Gold Shoes:

Not necessarily the first shoe hue that would pop into your head when asking yourself what color shoes with light blue dresses to wear, but it’s a great choice! If you’re wanting a shoe color to light blue dress combo that is in tune with the most popular metallic as of late, you can opt for a gold shoe. Or even a rose gold shoe, if you’re feeling up to it!

A light blue dress and gold shoes works great for a wedding or cocktail party look. Gold or rose gold shoes also bring out any warm tones that your dress might have, if it has a warm colored pattern. Rose gold shoes makes the look that much more flirty. 

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips: I would match my gold or rose shoes with the same shade in jewelry to keep things coordinated. As for a purse, as with a silver shoe, I would opt for either a white or black bag, but even a beige one would work well with this dress & shoe color pairing.

3. Beige Shoes with Pastel Blue Dress

Shop Beige/Blush Shoes:

Beige shoes with a pastel blue dress? Yes, please! You can never go wrong with beige or blush shoes, on any skin tone. And blush or beige shoes with a pastel blue dress is no exception. Understated & elegant, a great pair of beige shoes is what every gal needs in her closet.

Whether it’s a closed toe pump like Sam Edelman’s “Hazel” pointy pump or a classic strappy stiletto like Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist sandal or lower-heeled version called Nudist Song, you can’t go wrong. Sam Edelman makes a popular block heeled sandal that comes in (almost) every color of the rainbow!

Purse & Jewelery Styling TipsSince your nude or blush shoes have some warm tones to them, I would match with either gold or rose gold jewelry. For a purse color, you can opt for full on glam with a rose gold purse or keep it more understated with navy, black or white clutch.

4. White Shoes with Light Blue Dress

Shop White Shoes:

White shoes with a light blue dress will give a simple elegance to your outfit. You can’t go wrong with a white strappy sandal (love this one!), simple pointed pump (this one’s very popular) or even sleek ankle boot for this pale blue shoe combo. 

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips: Because the pairing is simple, any minimal jewelry type will work well. As for purses, yellow or pink would be a fun choice (especially for a celebratory occasion) but you won’t go wrong with silver or black.

5. Black Shoes with Baby Blue Dress

Shop Black Shoes:

The great thing about wearing black shoes with baby blue dresses is that you most likely have a pair in your shoe closet already! If you’re going to a cocktail function, I would opt for a strappy sandal. This stiletto style from Nordstrom is gorgeous!

This way, your black shoes will contrast well with your pale blue dress, but not too much. If you’re looking for a more casual shoe option, a black boot or pump would look lovely as well.

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips: I personally love silver jewelry with this light blue dress combo, but any metallic hue will do. My first purse color choice would definitely be white, but you can also pair a black or beige clutch with your outfit as well. Even a bright yellow or pink one if you’re felling bold! 

6. Light Blue Dress with Brown Shoes

Shop Brown Shoes:

If you’re going to a more casual (read: not cocktail or formal) event, the shoes for a light blue dress this time around could very well be brown shoes. Brown, dark tan, caramel or whichever descriptive you’d like to use is a great pairing with a powder blue dress.

If they match your skin tone, they’ll elongate your legs too! Brown shoes with a light blue dress is the perfect combo for a garden party or work outfit. If you want to wear brown shoes with your dress, but make it a bit more formal, you can opt for a pair of bronze shoes too!

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips:Any type of jewelry would work with this combo, so you can reach for gold, silver or even pewter. As per a purse color selection, you can match with your shoes or opt for a beige, white or black bag.

7. Purple & Contrast Blue Shoes

Shop Dark Blue/Purple Shoes:

If you’re looking to push your light blue dress styling to a whole new level, navy blue or purple shoes are where it’s at!

Unexpected & fun, you can’t go wrong with accessorizing your pastel blue dress with these similar, but still well suited shades. I would choose a darker navy shoe color or a darker purple heel with this combo.

Of course, if you’re looking to style a pastel blue dress outfit for an elegant event or a bridesmaid look, you can easily pair it with light blue heels.

Purse & Jewelery Styling Tips: With this combo, I would keep purse colors simple: either black, white or beige. Silver jewelry would keep the tones cool, while gold jewelry will add some warmth to your look. It’s really up to you what jewelry metal type you’d like to style your pale blue dress and blue/purple shoes with!

powder blue knee length lace dress what colour shoes and bag


Tuesday 6th of July 2021

Hi Susan, it would depend on the occasion and season. However, if the options listed in this post weren't helpful, I would play it safe by wearing your mid length light blue dress with a pair of high heeled pumps or sandals that are either black or skin-tone colored. A gold, silver, black or beige bag would work well with either shoe color.

Floral dress mid length navy white light blue flowers with little navy jacket what color shoes

Hi Carol, it really depends to what event you're off to. That being said, as your outfit in blue toned, my first choice would be a pair of light blue shoes, but nude-for-you heels, white or metallic silver shoes could look great and also make the outfit more formal. Wanting a pop of color? Yellow shoes could be fun too.
