The Shoes Celebs Wear With Pretty Summer Dresses

While I love layering as much as the next girl, there's something to be said for throwing on a single item of clothing and leaving the house in five minutes flat. Such is the case with summer dresses: Except for the occasional light jacket for chillier evenings, they can—and should—stand up as outfits on their own.

However, hopefully, no one's going barefoot while walking around the city, so footwear, at least, is an essential consideration. But when do you break out the simple slides versus the strappy gladiators? And when does an outfit call for ballet flats over a pair with a little more height?

To answer a few of these pressing questions, we took a look at the dress-and-shoe combinations celebrities gravitate toward. Keep scrolling to see easy-to-copy summer looks from Emily Ratajkowski, Dakota Fanning, and more.
