30 Neutral Bridesmaid Shoes That Go With Any Dress

From nude tones to metallic shades


Samm Blake Photographer

Whether you’re nearing professional bridesmaid status or dutifully serving for the first time, every bridesmaid needs a versatile shoe that she can pair with any type of dress. When buying a new pair of shoes, you likely select a style that you know you can get a lot of wear out of whether you have a taste for strappy stilettos, slip-on mules, or comfortable block or kitten heels. And while neutrals may not always seem like the most exciting choice, there are many styles to be had that are more than clean and classic, but ultra-stylish, too.

Naturally (no pun intended), a nude heel with a simple strap across your toes is easy for pairing with any type of bridesmaid dress. It’s simple, effortless, and always refined. You truly can’t go wrong with this silhouette and tone even after wedding events as it pairs effortlessly with literally everything in your wardrobe—can’t find a shoe that works overtime like that.

If you’re a fan of simplicity but want to kick it up a notch, go for a style in a metallic shade like gold, rose-gold, pewter, or silver. If you need an alternative to sandals, a classic pump is timeless and elegant.

For those already fanatical for this fail-safe style, spruce things up with a fresher option with lace-up straps—in nude, the effect remains graceful.

Perhaps you’re stocked with the basics and want to explore newer silhouettes. Unique knot ties, crisscross straps, and lace-up styles all feel fresh but still versatile enough to pair with a myriad of dress styles. You can even go for something sprinkled with glitter or with a few rhinestones as a fanciful way to dress up a frock without going overboard. What’s the harm in a little extra shine?

For a super trendy take, consider PVC. In pared-back silhouettes, translucent straps bring a bit of edge to any look and feel unexpected in place of trusty nude and metallic sandals. Plus, they’re super fun and playful. Why not shake things up?

If you’re the type who needs comfort, a sleek wedge or low block or kitten heel will keep your feet from falling apart within an hour and pair well with every dress style.

Whatever neutral shoe you’re drawn to, all are flawless for summer, so wear them for more than just weddings but with your breezy dresses and warm-weather separates as well. Yes, even your shiniest options. Summer is about fun, so don’t be afraid to pair metallics with everyday wares.

Ahead, scroll through 30 heels to suit all your neutral needs. From under-$50 finds to designer takes—and in every silhouette imaginable—you’ll undoubtedly find the perfect neutral shoe for you.
