6 Different Ways to Style Dresses with Flats

A time-saving throw-on-and-go dress is only as good as its most effortless shoe pairing. To save you the frustration of the sneakers-or-sandals debate, we compiled our favorite fail-safe formulas for spring.

1

MINIDRESS +
LACE-UP SANDALS

While you might be inclined to pair a dress this pretty with heels, strappy sandals can be just as sexy—especially if you lace them high around the calves instead of at the ankles.

SLEEK DRESS + PLATFORM SNEAKERS

A pitch-black utility dress means business. Which is why chunky pastel sneakers make such an unexpected (and delightful) pairing.

SWEATERDRESS + JUTE SANDALS

SHIRTDRESS + PREPPY KICKS

Midriff-baring slits take this shirtdress from classic to decidedly cool. Add a pair of white low-tops to keep the collegiate vibes going strong.

Temper the sleek lines of a figure-skimming knit dress with a fashion-y take on the Velcro sandals you romped around in as a kid.

WHITE DRESS + A POP OF COLOR

Neon will always stand out, but even more so against something so minimalist. We love how the sporty design of these sandals offsets the elegant drape of the dress.
