What color of hose and shoes do you wear with a green dress?
By Lynda123 from Lenoir, NC
This will depend on the shade of green. If it is a lighter green and it is the summer / spring months you can go with nude color stockings or tan to give a summer tanned look but stay close to your own skin color as it looks very odd to see very tanned legs and white arms. As for the shoes you can go with bone, tan or cream for the summer/ spring months. In fall and winter you can go with the darker tone shoes, charcol, dove grey even black but with slightly lighter colored stockings or black if wearing the dress at night to finish the look for youbut, no black stockings if the dress is a light green only a medium or dark green will work. Hope this helps your dilema. Remember to use a bag that is close if not the same as the shoes to finish your look.
Sorry if this is a repeat but I seem to have "lost" the original.
This year colour is BIG and so are shoes. If you can wear them go for the ultra high platform gladiator style shoots (shoe boots) Purple (any shade) would be fab. Bags are either clutch or large so go with whatever you're most comfortable with but if the same colour as shoes (and why?) add a corsage or sparkle. If your legs are tan slap on some moisturiser and go bare if at all milk bottle go for sandle toe or footless hose, if any form of business then nude sandle toe. Add a patent green belt of any shade and if you want comfort go for elasticated back al-la 1980's. If you don't like purple then any colour that traditionally "clashed" red, electric blue or another green, though if you do that then change the colour of the belt. Mostly though just enjoy wearing whaterever you choose as a smile is the best accessory EVER!!
Being a conservative dresser, I'd go for the nude or closely-matching hose, although you could go bare-legged, too. I'd go for varying shades of green like emeralds or green jade for jewelry. You could also wear diamonds or topaz, of course. If you don't happen to have the real thing, good costume jewelry doesn't cost a lot.
If you have a close friend or significant other on hand, ask him or her for feedback on your special look. Best to you, and have fun!
Creme color shoes and purse are basic for sage and lighter shades of green. Kelly (shamrock color) or darker should be matched with deep charcoal or black with purses to match. Green of any shade, should be worn with biege or neutral hose. You can't miss with these choices no matter where you are wearing them to.
