With spring now in full swing and summer fast approaching, it’s time to grab your favorite casual dresses if you haven’t already. The ease and comfort of a simple-cut sundress is well appreciated, making them the perfect item for stylish outfits in warmer weather.
However, if there is one problem with sundresses, they’re difficult to pair with shoes – or, at least, that’s what we’re led to believe. The problem arises when trying to find a balance between the comfort of a favorite dress and what works for your situation. After all, what's the point of slipping on a comfy dress just to ruin the vibe with a pair of heels?
In today's blog, we’ll be looking at the best footwear you can wear when wearing a casual dress and how each item affects the resulting outfit – making it easier for you to find what works.
Nothing speaks casual-chic like a fresh pair of sneakers to go with a summer dress. Sneakers are hugely versatile pieces of footwear that can adapt to a variety of different conditions. A low-cut pair of sneakers can provide an ideal match for spring or summer outfits that want to keep things simple and straightforward.
Ideally, a pair of crisp white sneakers are the best suited to creating a bright, summery vibe. However, patterned sneakers are also perfect when creating a more playful and fun aesthetic.
Yes, boots are entirely possible as an addition to your spring or summer outfits. The added airiness of a dress gives you a lot of options when it comes to footwear, with the only caveat being a need to make sure you can still show off your legs.
Boots manage to achieve a lot of different goals at the same time, providing a rustic flair to your outfit and showing off your legs while providing a fantastic solid base for your outfit on those colder days.
Much like taller boots, ankle boots achieve many different goals that make them ideal for spring outfits focused on a single dress. Where ankle boots differ is their ability to create a whole different vibe from what is typically expected, with a quirkier look that feels playful and hipster-like.
Metallic Sandals/Flip Flops
Summer is all about embracing the sun's rays and getting the most from the warmer days; what better way to do that than with a reflective surface on your person!
Metallic sandals are ideal for summer as they keep your outfit light and cool while also infusing a bright and reflective vibe into the ensemble.
Much like metallic sandals, leather sandals keep a low profile that helps keep your outfit light and cool while maximizing the effect a great dress has on emphasizing your legs. While metallic sandals will often look to be admired with their dazzling textures, a pair of simple leather sandals will be far more level-headed and subdued.
If you're looking for some footwear that will keep you cool while giving your outfit plenty of space to shine, then a pair of leather sandals are ideal.
