Read on to see and shop our favorite ways to wear a dress and heels now.
Black Dress + Statement Shoe
We all love an LBD, but sometimes you still need a pop of color.
Don't be afraid to mix and match colors and patterns. For an eye-catching look, style metallic heels with a floral dress.
Wearing head-to-toe red is a sure way to stand out. And while it may seem an intimidating combination at first, sticking to just one hue is actually an easy move.
Floral Maxi + Velvet
Another combination that feels especially unique is the mixing of a floral maxi and velvet heels. The summery dress paired with a shoe that feels a bit more fall-appropriate makes it the perfect combination for transitioning seasons.
Mini Dress + Booties
Mixing masculine and feminine styles is an easy way to breathe new life into what you already own. Try pairing a flirty dress with combat boots for a cool combination.
Slip Dress + Ladylike Pumps
A sleek slip dress works for day or night but feels that much more polished with a pair of office-worthy heels.
Sundress + Espadrilles
Pick a not-your-average sundress (think a cool print or unique button details) and pair it with summery espadrilles for a combination that's laid-back but fashion-forward.
Vintage Dress + Boots
Break out your fall boots and pair them with a summery minidress. The resulting ensemble feels seasonless and oh-so-cool.
