Gray or silver shoes pair well with a teal dress. Other colors that pair well with teal are saffron, midnight blue and violet. The brilliant jewel tone is best paired with neutral colors, complementary colors or other cool colors.
The color wheel is a useful tool in combining colors. Colors that are directly opposite to each other are known as complementary colors. On the color wheel, teal is opposite from red-orange. They are highlighted by each other, and thus pair well together. Another way to pair colors together is by pairing analog colors – colors that lie near each other on the color wheel. For example, teal pairs well with blue, green and violet, because they are all cool colors.
