The plethora of fashion options is one of the best parts of the warmer months: Between dresses, skirts, pants, shorts and more, it’s easy and fun to switch things up and wear something new every day. And there are tons of choices when it comes to warm-weather shoes as well!
Get your style into gear and take a look at these five foolproof shoe and outfit combinations:
1. A maxi and flat sandals
Why we love it: Maxi dresses and skirts skyrocketed in popularity a few years ago, and they aren’t going away any time soon. They’re stylish while also being comfortable and lightweight – perfect for spring and summer. Flat sandals complement the stylish-yet-comfortable vibe flawlessly.
Where to wear: You can wear this comfortable combo during casual occasions, ranging from a trip to the grocery store to a day at the beach to a backyard barbecue at a neighbor’s house.
2. Slim-cut pants and wedges
Why we love it: Slim-cut pants are a great spring clothing item, and you can embrace the warmer seasons by wearing cropped, patterned or brightly colored versions of the style. Pairing slim-cut pants with wedges makes for a sophisticated and fun-loving look.
Where to wear: Slim-cut pants and wedges are a smart-casual combination you can wear to the office or even out with friends during warm spring and summer evenings.
3. A sheath dress and peep-toe pumps
Why we love it: This classic pairing is both chic and elegant, and works perfectly for those days when you need to dress up a little more. Classic pumps are always a hit, but the peep toe adds a little extra dash of warm-weather style. To wear the outfit all day, opt for a heel between 1 and 3 inches.
Where to wear: The combination of a sheath dress and peep-toe heels works well at any business-casual or even more formal office (as long as the dress code is OK with open-toe footwear!).
4. An A-line dress and strappy sandals
Why we love it: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: The A-line silhouette is universally flattering so it’s one of our favorite cuts. Plus, A-line summer dresses are comfy and cute! Use the opportunity to show off a little leg in a funky way with some strappy sandals or even gladiator-style shoes.
Where to wear: This style can be worn almost anywhere, whether you’re going shopping, heading to a more casual office or simply spending the day with your family.
5. Shorts and canvas flats
Why we love it: Shorts are the ultimate summer staple, letting ladies show off their legs and stay cool and stylish all at once. Canvas flats have just the right amount of comfort, style and versatility to keep shorts looking casual yet fashionable.
Where to wear: This combination is perfect for casual weekends, like running errands or working around the house.
