What shoes to wear with a bronze dress

Q. I have a beautiful bronze evening gown with rhinestone pins on each shoulder strap. I’m not sure if I should wear a silver or bronze shoe to match the dress.

-Maddening Metallic 

A. It may traditionally be synonymous with coming in third place, but for you, bronze is the winning color for your dress. There are so many bronze hues and style available that it’s best if you choose a shade slightly darker or lighter than your dress.  Here are some gorgeous styles:

    Ive got some great new bronze shoes and cant tell if they “feel right” when i pair them with dress suits or dresses for work. I was hoping they would be a nice subsitute for taupe. Whats your opinion, please?

    Thank You!

    Bronze-my opinion is that they are either for dress or casual–not for the office ever.
    Just my opinion.
