8 Pretty Outfits Featuring Just Dresses and Sneakers

While you may be wearing a lot of cool sweats outfits these days, I thought a bit of summer-outfit inspiration could be of interest to either test out now or save and reference in the future. Specifically, I wanted to focus on cute dress ensembles. But I’m not talking about crazy high-concept looks here. Instead, I wanted to focus on some of the prettiest outfits I’ve seen over the last few months that feature just dresses and sneakers.

With all that in mind, keep scrolling to uncover a new chic look to try and shop inspired pieces if you’re interested at the moment.
