The 8 Shoes to Wear With Dresses That Aren't Heels

We love a good pair of heels with a dress, whether they have a stiletto heel or a more comfortable block heel. But sometimes we just have to give our feet a break and slip into something more comfortable. That being said, finding the right shoes to wear with dresses that aren’t heels is just a little tougher than we’d imagine. You want to be comfortable, but you don’t want to look too casual when you’re wearing a pretty dress.

So we looked to our favorite fashion girls for some visual proof that yes, you can wear shoes that aren’t heels with dresses and still look chic and polished. Whether you tone your dress down to the more casual side with a pair of cool sneakers or have strappy sandals that’ll complement your ensemble, your outfit will still feel complete even if you aren’t wearing your favorite pumps. See for yourself below.
