A good pair of shoes can make or break your outfit. That’s why we wanted to share our best tips on choosing the right pair! Our general rule of thumb is to wear a lower heel or flat with longer items like jeans, maxi dresses, or maxi skirts. With short dresses or rompers, we love a good high heel!

When rockin’ that casual summer outfit of denim shorts and a basic tee, we love a strappy sandal.


We love this because the whole outfit flows together - each piece is fairly basic, comfortable, yet super cute! Try to keep this outlook in mind when choosing your kicks.

This outfit on Pinterest is giving us all the *heart eyes*, too! A striped top, distressed denim, and strappy sandals make you look so chic and stylish without a ton of effort. Count us in for that, girl!

When throwing on your favorite short summer dress, grab a pair of chunky heels, like we did in these outfits:



A chunky heel like this helps elongate your legs, lift your booty, and you don’t have to sacrifice comfort! You can also see how we styled this simple little number:


Our favorite way to top off a flowy maxi dress is with a simple pair of flat sandals that don’t take away from the rest of the outfit! Our Warm Winds Maxi Dress and plain white sandals are a perfect example of this! We love to create balance in our looks. When a dress has a beautiful pattern or design, a simple sandal is the perfect way to complement the look.




With cropped pants, jumpsuits, or midi dresses that hit between the calf and ankle, we love a chunky block heel! You can’t go wrong with these - because they give you that added height and elongated legs, but they’re not hard to walk in AT ALL!



Ashley Madekwe also pulls this off perfectly in this beautiful white midi and camel strappy block heel.

With two-piece sets being super popular lately, we think these can be styled however you want! Two-piece sets work with just about anything!




And fashion blogger (The Styled Seed) totally pulls off the look with white ankle socks and white tennis shoes! So, there’s your proof that this look can work with just about anything!


We hope these tips help you to feel your best in your outfits! If you still find yourself struggling to choose the right shoe style to go along with your outfit, our advice is to go with what makes you feel best! Comfort and confidence go hand-in-hand… so, if you wear what you truly feel comfortable in, your confidence will shine through!
