Do I have to wear navy shoes with navy clothes?

I've just bought a really nice navy trouser suit - it was on sale so couldn't resist.

I do not have any shoes to match, but I'm loathed to buy navy shoes- do i absolutely have to wear navy?

I was thinking I could wear yellow peep toe shoes, with a little hint of yellow accessories, or even red....

Can someone please advise me?

Red, tan, nude, gold - not so sure about yellow..

I actually think yellow would be nice, I think navy actually looks nice with a splash of bright colour.

I have a navy outfit that I wear apple green shoes and accessories with. I just put the green with it one day as I had run out of ideas and was desperate - it works amazingly well!

Oh Binks, that sounds lovely! And I have a lovely apple green bag (given to me by my gran would you believe)

Photos/Links anyone grin

Tan or nude for me, depending on how polished you want to look - tan will generally look a bit more casual.

Green and navy is lovely, Binks where did you get your apple green shoes?

Or fuschia pink if it suit you (it doesn't suit me sad)
