Olive Green Dresses: What Color Accessories Go Best

The right accessories have the power to transform any outfit! To help you, I’ve put together this style guide with the best suggestions for shoes, earrings, necklaces, clutches, and even nail polish that will pair perfectly with olive green dresses.

Accessories for olive green dresses: best ideas

First, always think about the occasion when choosing your accessories.

Let’s say you’ve been invited to a wedding. In this case, it’s always a good idea to consider details such as the season, the time of day, and the venue.

But don’t worry! Below, you’ll discover all the inspiration you need to create outfits that perfectly match the occasion and your style, whether you lean towards something understated or bold!


Let’s talk shoes first! Nude, silver or gold heeled sandals are a chic and elegant choice to complement your olive green dress. For a fresh and delicate vibe, you might also want to consider white heels, especially for a summer event.

On the other hand, black heeled sandals or pumps will add a touch of boldness to your look, perfect for a more glamorous evening party.

If you’re attending a wedding in the countryside or at the beach, where the ground might be uneven, consider metallic flat sandals with gemstone details for a comfortable and equally stylish option!

Earrings and necklaces in silver and gold tones are perfect for elegant looks, especially with an olive green dress!

Gold jewelry complements warm skin tones and blonde hair, adding refinement and glamour. On the other hand, silver jewelry suits those with darker hair or cool skin tones, bringing sophistication.

However, it’s not a hard-and-fast rule – you can choose whichever tone you like best! You can even mix silver and gold jewelry, just be sure not to go overboard with it.

Another great choice is to coordinate the color of your earrings or necklace with your dress. You can choose green jewelry in a similar or darker shade, such as emerald green.

For a daring look, you can also opt for earrings featuring turquoise, light green, hot pink gemstones, or a mix of these colors! This choice works perfectly for a summer wedding, especially if you match it with a clutch in one of the earring colors.

When it comes to the type of earrings, it really depends on your personal taste:

  • Drop earrings are a timeless choice that exudes elegance. Pieces with colorful zirconia add vibrancy and boldness to your look.
  • Small hoop earrings in silver or gold tones are a subtle option, great for more understated outfits.
  • Fringe or cascading earrings are classic and sophisticated for evening events, adding graceful movement to your look.
  • Ear cuffs are trending and offer a modern, romantic vibe, especially flattering if you have short hair or plan to wear it up.

As for necklaces, they should be simple and understated to avoid overwhelming your look, especially if your earrings are more eye-catching. If you’re wearing earrings with green gemstones, for example, you can also choose a necklace with details in the same color.

As for the type of purse, small clutches with tulle, straw, or linen accents are ideal for keeping the attention on the dress. However, if you’re looking for something more daring, you can’t go wrong with clutches adorned with sparkle, gemstones, or a satin finish.

Nude nails (pink, beige, gray, brown) or a French manicure are classy and safe choices to complement and keep the focus on your dress. For a touch of boldness and extra glamour, you can opt for classic shades like red, wine, black, silver, or gold nail polish.

If you’re looking to add a vibrant pop of color to your look, consider a magenta nail polish. This trendy shade is perfect for creating a more bolder summer outfit!
