How to Style Sneakers with Dresses

I have always been a dress girl.  In fact, I prefer to wear dresses over anything else.  They are easy, comfortable, and extremely versatile.  My younger self would have always worn a pair of wedges or heels with my dress of the day,  but the older and busier I get, comfort is key!!  I think I ran about 20 errands yesterday and my dress and sneakers  kept me comfortable all day long and my feet were thanking me!  I am seeing sneakers paired with dresses more and more, but I do think there are a few tips to make the look chic and stylish.

  1. Skip the socks, or wear no shows
  2. Keep the rest of your accessories casual
  3. Avoid the chunky sneakers to keep the look balanced
  4. Think about the length of your dress.  For instance, a midi length can make you appear shorter. Since I am only 5’5′ I usually wear a sneaker with some sort of platform when I wear a midi.  I don’t do this with a shorter length.
  5. Experiment with colors/prints.  There are so many fun sneakers right now and I love adding a fun pop like leopard print or snake print!



Midi dresses I am loving!
