10 Shoes to Wear With Summer’s Biggest Dress Trends

Summer is just around the corner, and while we may not be traveling or attending many fun gatherings like in summer’s past, we still want to look and feel good in summer’s chicest pieces. One item that’s going to be on heavy rotation this upcoming season is unquestionably? Dresses. There are plenty of cool trends out there to suit every sartorial taste—from puff sleeves and crochet fabrics to open-back frocks and voluminous silhouettes. Which poses the question: What shoes should we be pairing with all our cool dresses this summer?

Below, we’re sharing some of the chicest footwear trends that will look gorgeous with your frocks this warm-weather season. From sporty sandals to retro sneakers, consider pairing one of these cool pairs below with your minis, midis, or maxis.

Chic Flip-Flops

This season, flip-flops are getting an elevated upgrade with chic details such as flatform silhouettes and luxe leather fabrics. Designers have released luxe versions of the controversial trend. (We’re particularly loving The Row and Prada’s right now.) Whether you wear flats or thong sandals with a heel, if you want to avoid a beach-ready look, pair them with sleek and polished dresses such as rib knit midi dresses or silky slips.

Sporty Sandals

Sporty sandals have been trending for a few years now, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. While a classic black pair will never go out of style, this summer, we’re seeing fashion girls wearing the comfy flatform sandals in fun colors, designs, and adornments to spruce up their voluminous dresses or sleek midis.

Retro Sneakers

Retro sneakers are having a major moment this summer. They add a cool-girl touch to everything from floral print minidresses to colorful maxi dresses. Go all the way and wear them with trending white crew socks.

Rainbow Hues

Nothing puts us in the summertime mood quite like a bright and bold pair of colorful sandals. We’ve seen orange and green hues in particular pop up all over Instagram and at our favorite retailers, which is not surprising since they were prevalent on the S/S 2020 runways. Don’t be afraid to pair them with an equally bold printed dress this summer.

Birkenstocks

The “ugly” sandal trend that is Birkenstocks is no longer a passing trend. In fact, they’ve become a mainstay in many a cool-girls wardrobe. They’re especially popular right now given our desire for comfort at home. Pair them with a contrasting cute, puff-sleeved, billowy white frock.

Chain Details

Shoes with chains, anklets, and other jewelry-like accents was a trend seen all over the S/S 2020 runway and adds a chic and luxurious touch to even the simplest dresses.

Spring Handbag Trends

Are you ready for spring season? With spring round the corner, we’re looking to the hottest summer fashion trends to dictate our new season wardrobe, and that includes which designer handbags to invest in.

Some spring 2019 handbag trends were carried over from previous years, like all of the oversized bags, straw bags, ball-shaped bags, and more. Others were different themes on old trends, like the trunks and duffels that we saw. So we rounded up the major bag trends from SS19 catwalk shows to bring you the hottest bag trends everyone will be wearing this season.

Snap clasp bags

Think handbags the Queen would wear, aka the ladylike bag. They are basically an oversized old-fashion coin purse with a classy snap fastening at the top, and perhaps a nice tortoiseshell chain strap. Snap clasps will always have that old timey nostalgia. Look to Coach and Simone Rocha for inspiration.

Lanyard bags

The cult of travel has been all over the runways this season, with lanyards being one of the spring/ summer 2019 bag trends to represent it. Holding your handbag is so last year, this season it’s all about wearing it around your neck. these small bags are perfect for carrying your passport, airplane ticket, and a bit of a foreign currency on those budget flights that won’t allow you to bring on a handbag.

See-through bags

Barbie was right: life in plastic definitely is fantastic. A see-through plastic bag is also a great choice for the beach or pool, and boy, did we see a lot of different beach bag ideas show up in the summer 2019 bag trends. One word of advice for this trend: do curate your belongings so it still looks stylish, it’s just not the same vibe if you can see your tampons and your smints.clear-bags-920x460

Crochet bags

Crochet was a big hit this season, pairing well with an overall boho, summery vibe. Crocheted bags came primarily in the form of hobo, tote and more casual bags perfect for a day on the beach or some casual shopping.

Last season was all about the basket bag, but this year we are embracing another natural trend: the crochet bag. Think a softer, more wearable version of the trend, in neutral tones of beige, sand and brown. Perfect for tonal dressing, as seen at Jacquemus, Isabel Marant and Chanel.

Check out the new prints and graphics trends that you will see on the SS/18 runways, incorporated in the Psychotropical Vision.

deep sea prints

Inky blotches, abstract shapes and painterly mark-makings imitate the enthralling skins of sea creatures. These psychedelic patterns become exaggerated and hyperreal tjanks to an intense and saturated color palette, juxtaposed against lush darks for glow-in-the dark effect. Scales vary from micro to macro for a renewed approach to the perennial favorite pattern.

hypnotic nights prints

For the high-summer drop, tones are more saturated and juxtaposed with lush darks fro a dramatic mood. An expressive brushstroke offers flora and fauna an abstract quality, achieved with oil pastels and lashing of vivid gouache. Outlines are bold and brash, paired with dizzying geometrics for a hypnotic feel.
