The Shoes You'll Want to Wear With Every Sundress This Summer

The sundress: One of summer’s easiest fall-back options, as a far as comfort and style goes. Among the many reasons why sundresses are just such an easy go-to as summer approaches is the ease and comfort with which they can be worn and styled.

However, while throwing on a sundress is an undeniably effortless process, figuring out which shoes to wear with it might not come as easy. When your thongs feel a little too casual, but heels will ruin the ease that makes sundresses so appealing, it can be hard to figure out what shoes will work—which is why we’ve rounded up some of the best options. Keep reading to learn about the six types of shoes you’ll want to wear with sundresses all summer long.

1. Classic Sneakers

For a casual sporty feel, pair your sundress with some classic, white sneakers. Already an essential, sneakers somehow work with even the most feminine of dresses. Not only do the shoes add an unexpected twist to a nicer outfit, but they are comfortable, too—always a plus.

2. White Boots

White makes everything look a little more summer-y.  For a look that is sleek and on-trend, pair a shorter dress with white statement boots to really kick it up a notch. As Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid always prove with their chic outfits, going with a completely white ensemble keeps this monochromatic look feeling chic, rather than boring.

3. Ankle Boots

Add a bohemian vibe to any summer sundress by pairing it with boots that hit right at the ankle. A more fashionable alternative to thongs, ankle boots can turn an easy summer outfit into a full-on free spirited look.

4. Silver Sandals

Silver sandals are the way to go when searching for a shoe that lets the dress be the main focus, without feeling boring. Sparkling on their own terms (literally), silver sandals are neutral enough to pair with any dress, but fun enough to avoid feeling monotonous.

5. Skin-Colour Sandals

To really showcase a dress, skin-colour sandals are your best bet. Choose a pair with chunky heels if your outfit needs height, or flat slides for something more comfortable and laid-back. Another perk of this option is that the sandals create the illusion of longer legs, which is ideal in a leg-baring dress.

6. Bright Flats

While skin-colour sandals are a great basic to pair with any dress, changing it up with a pair of bright flats can completely transform a look. Adding a bright pair of flats is an easy way to buy into a new-season trend, without committing to going all-out to try the trend.
