What Shoes Go With A Coral-Colored Dress?

My Twitter friend Mo asked me today what shoes to wear with a coral-colored dress. My first inclination was to simply say “gold sandals”, but after giving it further thought, I realized that there are many colors that accomplish different things when paired with a coral dress. Depending on your mood and the occasion, you can choose, navy, mint green, pewter, gold, white and even hot pink.

Here are a few ensembles I’ve put together for specific occasions (starting with Mo’s dressy reception) . They include the same coral dress, but various ways of wearing different color combinations.
