Since I’m a fashion editor, I am always planning ahead. Summer may be far away, but I want us to walk into June well prepared, so listen up. Class is in session, and I’m ready to teach you the best shoes to wear with dresses if you have a vacation coming up or are lucky enough to live in a warm climate. I am known to slowly build my next-season wardrobe using the storage boxes underneath my bed and suggest everyone else does too. This is the best way to guarantee you’ll walk into summer fashion with an A+.
I don’t consider myself a big dress wearer, but every time I start planning my warm-weather wardrobe, I suddenly become someone who wears dresses (at least a few times a month, that is). But since summer-dress outfits are so very simple, the key to a great summer-dress outfit is the shoes you wear with it. That’s where I come in.
While you could just grab your casual dress of choice and throw on the first pair of summer shoes you see, there are many different types of summer shoes and many different types of casual summer dresses to wear with them, so I’m here to provide a little guidance in case you happen to love any of the 15 beautiful dresses featured below. Keep scrolling to shop the combinations you’re sure to love as much as I do.
