Considering the fact that there are a handful of outfits that will always look good, you can build a completely foolproof wardrobe for the season if you really put your mind to it. However, if there's one ensemble we had to pick as our favorite, it would be a dress with sneakers. Don't get us wrong. We love skinny jeans with ankle boots as much as any other outfit, but in case you want to switch things up a bit, this one really takes the cake.

Wearing a one-and-done piece like a dress is already simple enough, but the addition of a pair of sneakers will have you giving off that enviable cool-girl vibe in one easy step. Whether you're headed to drinks with friends or are jetting out of the house to run errands, we're here to show you why dresses with sneakers are the outfit formula you should always have on rotation. To prove our point, we rounded up some of our favorite takes on the look from the coolest fashion people. Check them out below.
