Like a shoes lover, I happen to think that shoes are what really make a dress. Anyone can just throw on a cute dress, but how you style it is what really makes or breaks it. We’re a bit of an anything-goes place in fashion, but that doesn’t mean certain shoes don’t just look cooler than others with dresses, and the fashion crowd is very aware of that.
I searched through Instagram for some great examples of the shoes I’ve seen the fashion crowd wear over and over with all types of dresses this season, and there are some fun ones. You may already own most of these trends, but just in case, I found some excellent options to shop and pair with your own dresses. (And if you want to shop for trendy dresses my co-editor Judith also found some great ones.)
