Though we’re in favor of securing a pair of cute sneakers and flat sandals to add to the rotation, we also strongly believe a pair of heels can make the appeal of a summer dress even stronger.

Right now, the heel trends we’re seeing the most of are decidedly strappy iterations and low-heel interpretations. These relaxed-yet-refined shapes are ideal for wearing with summer dresses because they’re not overly dressy … Read the rest
