    The 4 Best Shoes to Wear with Dresses

    October 29, 2021

    If there’s one clothing item that we know our customers adore, it’s dresses. From sleek bodycon silhouettes to long and flowing styles, this fashion staple is a key piece that is an absolute must for any woman’s wardrobe. Whatever the type of occasion, you can never go wrong with a great dress because it can easily be dressed both up and down, depending on whether you’re going for a smart or casual look. But what about the shoes? While there are so many options out there to choose from, finding the right pair to go with your chosen dress can often be a difficult task. Here at Yumi, we love to bring you the latest and most on-trend styles, which is why our favourite types of shoes to wear with dresses are guaranteed to elevate your outfit and finish off your look perfectly.

    Our Favourite Shoes to Wear with Dresses

    There are so many different types of dresses out there, but with these staple shoes, putting your outfit together is sure to be a breeze. 


    A sophisticated pair of mid or high heels offers a gorgeous elegant touch to any kind of party dress, whether you’re off to celebrate a special occasion or are heading out for a night on the town. Comfortable block heels provide a versatile footwear option that has the potential to go with anything from a casual denim dress to a showstopping ball gown, so they make a great addition to your shoe collection as you’re sure to be reaching for them again and again. When it comes to colour, anything goes. A neutral dress can be complemented with similar shades for a put-together aesthetic or contrasted with a bold pop of colour to make you stand out. We offer a stunning selection of heels that are sure to add a chic element to any of your favourite dresses, so take a look at the collection to try out the trend today.


    If heels aren’t your thing, why not opt for a comfy pair of trainers instead? While they are typically a more casual footwear choice as opposed to a pretty dress, they actually add an effortlessly cool contrast to your outfit that just works. We recommend combining a streamlined style of dress with a chunky pair of trainers that make a statement for the perfect smart casual look. They are ideal for everything from day trips, shopping days or any other relaxed occasion where you’re free to get creative with your style. Plus, they’re one of the most comfortable and easy to wear shoe styles around! Take a look at our cool collection of trainers and discover modern lace-up, slip-on and sock designs that you are sure to love.


    A perfect option for the summer months, a simple pair of sliders makes an excellent footwear choice for anyone who lives in their flats. A must-have for any holiday or staycation, these chic sandals can be worn with everything from a delicate slip dress to a glamorous mini dress and can be slipped on and off with ease. Sliders have become extremely popular in recent years and there are now a huge array of designs out there to incorporate into your wardrobe, from elegant embellished designs to sophisticated leather varieties. In our extensive collection of sliders and flats, we have plenty of laid-back styles for you to choose from, including a selection of neutral, pastel and bold colour palettes, which make changing up your look easier than ever.


    While they typically tend to be one for the autumn and winter months, we think that there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a great pair of boots as part of your year-round wardrobe, especially if the weather can be somewhat unpredictable. A chunky pair of track-sole boots offer an excellent way to make a statement with a floaty summer dress, as well as being an ideal shoe style to pair with a minidress, thick black tights and a big winter coat thrown on over the top. Whether you opt for a pair of biker boots, Chelsea boots, knee-high boots or heeled boots, they are a versatile choice that can be worn with a huge array of colours and styles of dresses. Discover our high-quality selection of women’s boots to find the perfect pair to incorporate into your dress collection.
