For us, one of the most challenging things about wearing a maxi dress (or, really, the only challenging thing) is what shoes to wear. The essential nature of a maxi dress is that it's basically a one-piece outfit: You throw it on and go. But the shoes you choose can truly make or break your look.
We certainly prefer making to breaking, so we're here to help! We've narrowed all the shoes in the world down to three we think are best suited to wear with full-length casual dresses. Hopefully this makes your life a bit easier when reaching for your favorite maxi in your closet.
