What shoes?

So there's this color that i have been seeing in stores for fall. It looks kind of like this:

That picture is from Fashion Fabrics Club and the call it "Dark Taupe" which is as descriptive a name for this particular color as any, I suppose.

My question, if you purchase a dress, or suit or jacket in this color... what shoes would you wear? Surely not black, as Taupe is in the "brown" family... and despite what some people say, I still believe there are rules about such things. But a real chocolate brown? No... that would never do.

What do you, oh wonderfully fashionable person reading this blog, think? The only thing I can think of is maybe gold? But that's a little... loud for everyday wear. Red might work if you had something else that was red in the outfit, like a belt or scarf.

Do chime in.

The shoe color doesn't need to blend with the taupe if the taupe is in pants or a skirt. Why not get something completely different that works with the top you're wearing or an accent scarf/handbag? Shoes can complement an outfit, they don't always have to blend in.

Or, if you live in the Northwest (which we do), grab a pair of brown leather Birks and go! LOL

I like this color and depending on what the item was, I'd probably go with a shoe color that matched my hair, honey blondy brownish. Does that make any sense?
