Sandals for a yellow dress

Q. I would like to know if black strappy sandals will be okay to wear with a yellow dress?  I know that black goes with everything but I just want to make sure.

-Color Confusion 

A. I’m a little concerned about the severity of black sandals with a yellow dress and the unfortunate reminder of a bumble bee.  I don’t know if your yellow dress is formal or not, but there are so many light, bright, and soft colored sandals for Spring that would work with a yellow dress.  Consider pastels, metallics and even a pattern to brighten up the look of your dress rather than create a heavy sullen effect with black sandals. Here are just a few gold and white selections to give you a head start:
