If there's one thing we know our readers are buying right now, it's dresses. Whether it's a floral tea dress or a polka-dot wrap, it seems we're all a little obsessed. The best thing about this season's key styles is you can wear them to your best friend's wedding or on a Sunday afternoon to your local pub. The easiest way to make your midis work for both occasions is all down to the footwear—swap tennis shoes for a midi heel and your dress can work for an entirely different dress code.
One of the questions we get asked the most at Who What Wear is what shoes look best with dresses. There are certain classic choices that will go with every dress in your wardrobes, such as white pumps, leather sliders and wedge espadrilles. Then there are some more 'fashion' choices that can be just as versatile, including velcro sandals and chunky trainers. Keep scrolling to see the shoe-and-dress formulas that go together like gin and tonic.
For days when it's a little cooler, black Chelsea boots or black heeled ankle boots is the best option. These can look a little awkward with dresses just over the knee, so they work better with midi and ankle-grazing lengths.
Look best with: Pretty dresses— it pays to embrace the contrast.
This might be an unconventional choice, but if you like to go for a statement and to toughen up your pretty dresses, follow the lead of the Copenhagen girls and wear your dresses with chunky Dad trainers. The more colourful, the better.
