Long gone are the days when only heels, sandals or flats were acceptable to wear with dresses. Now, we can keep it cool and casual with shoes. Effortlessly stylish shoes and dresses are the perfect everyday look all year round.
But, if you’re new to this modern style and unsure of how to wear shoes with dresses, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered right here.
What Shoes should you wear with Summer Dresses?
Shoes and jeans or shoes and shorts have always been a go-to outfit for the summer as it’s generally easy to style and doesn't need much thought. Throw on your favorite pair of high tops or low tops, and you’re good to go.
The difference with shoes and summer dresses is that it isn’t a one-trainer-fits-all situation. With different dress styles, colors, fabrics and lengths, the shoes you choose to wear need to be carefully selected to achieve the best and most put-together look.
What Color Shoes should you wear with Different Colored Dresses?
While the color of your shoes with dresses depends entirely on personal preference, whether you’re someone who likes to stand out and wear bold, clashing colors together or if you’re a fan of chic neutrals, there are some color combinations that will always work and never go out of style.
Best Shoes to Wear with Black Dresses
Pairing a black dress with black vegan shoes can give a mistrial and stylish vibe to your appearance while also looking sophisticated. Black is a timeless color, and black shoes are essential for every wardrobe. With black dresses, you can also wear contrasting white sneakers if you want your footwear to pop or neon-colour shoes for a funky edge.
Best Shoes to Wear with White Dresses
The beauty of white dresses is that you have the freedom to wear any color footwear you want. A pair of crisp white vegan shoes paired with a white dress is a clean and fashionable look that screams summertime is here. Grey and black monochrome style shoes also offer a chic look that contrasts well with white dresses, especially when paired with darker accessories such as a black or grey bag and some dark sunglasses.
Best Shoes to Wear with Red Dresses
For red dresses, beige or blush shoes work exceptionally well as it helps to make the red dress stand out. Of course, bright white shoes will pair well with red dresses and can give the look a fresh and youthful appeal. You could also wear white sneakers with red accents for a more cohesive look.
Best Shoes to Wear with Navy Dresses
Navy is a surprisingly versatile color that can be worn with many other hues. Once again, you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic white shoes. But, to mix it up and add an interesting pop of color, some neon pink vegan shoes will create a contrasting yet complementary feminine edge. You could also wear shoes with pale blue accents for a smooth look that can help brighten up a dark dress for the summer.
What Shoes to Wear with Patterned Dresses
With patterned dresses, a pair of simple white, nude or black shoes, like those in our LØCI ORIGIN collection, will keep the focus on the dress while still giving it a luxurious look and feel. You could also match the color of your shoes with a color within the patterned dress for a seamless flow. Or, for the ultimate spring and summer look, if you’re wearing a floral dress, choose a subtle floral trainer design.
What Shoes to Wear with Mini Dresses
For mini dresses, a pair of low-top shoes are best as these will make it look as though your legs are never-ending. However, high tops or baseball-style shoes can also work very well if you want a more casually cool look.
What Shoes to Wear with Maxi Dresses
With maxi dresses, some chunky shoes or high-top shoes work well as they can match the drama of a longer dress. Pairing larger style shoes with some bolder accessories, too, like a statement bag and a large belt, will instantly give you a stand-out summer outfit that everyone will admire.
