What Colours Complement a Green Dress?

We have previously discussed what colours go with emerald and sage greens - the most popular shades, but lets reiterate.

What Colours go well with Dark Greens?

Complementary colours - Reds, Corals and Pinks

Green's complementary colour is red. Dark greens will go perfectly with all shades of red. Don't like red? Opt for coral colours or pinks to similarly elevate your look.

Does Pink go with Green?

Pink definitely goes with green. We love bright pink accessories to match a green dress - whether its emerald, dark, or a vibrant green, pink is a must. If you love to step out of your comfort zone and go bold, complementing a green dress with pink accessories will create a statement look at your next event.


You can never go wrong with a simple nude shoe and clutch. This makes your dress the statement piece, and adds a touch of elegance and simplicity to your look.

What Colours go well with Light Greens?


As lighter colours are softer, you don't want to go too overboard with your accessories. This means that by adding a vibrant colour to match your soft green dress, it may add harshness to your outfit. We love nude shoes with light colours for a seemless look.


Gold or silver accessories can elevate a light green dress and still make your look seemless. If you want to add a fun accessory, we love the metallics for this very reason.

Does Black go with Green?

After all the colours mentioned above, you must be wondering - does black go with green clothes? The answer is, of course!

Can you wear Black Shoes with a Green Dress?

Black accesories with dark green dresses are the perfect match. Black with light green may be too harsh with your look and we'd recommend to pair it with white instead.
