Chic Summer Dress Sandals For Every Occasion

Whether you’re stepping out for brunch or attending a swanky daylight soiree, a great pair of chic summer dress sandals can instantly transform your outfit. For low-key events where you want to feel effortlessly stylish yet comfortable too, look no further than the interlocking G espadrille sandals by Gucci. Firstly, these gorgeous sandals will go with all of your favorite throw-on-and-go summer dresses. Secondly, they’ll instantly elevate the look with their stunning, crystal-embellished, interlocking G logo. Slip these on with your go-to midi dresses and a cute tote bag for maximum style points. I highly recommend the Micro Sense crossbody tote by Chloé and Maeve linen edition Colette midi dress.

Meanwhile, the Ibor leather slingback sandals by Neous are the ideal day-to-night heels for summer events. Pair them with a versatile slip dress that’ll also work seamlessly from daytime events to after-dark ones. Then, add a simple top-handle bag to finish the look. Hint: the Thalia lace-trimmed floral print silk midi dress by Dôen and Bon Bon bow detail satin bag by Jimmy Choo will work perfectly.

Chic Summer Dress Sandals To Wear On Repeat

There’s nothing better than finding the perfect pair of chic summer dress sandals that go with every silhouette you own. I think I’ve found the quintessential pair for the season ahead, the bow micro wedge sandals by Maeve. Firstly, the all-black design is effortlessly stylish and so versatile. Secondly, the oversized bow detail is super pretty and happens to be trending. I’ll be pairing these shoes with every dress in my closet. However, I think they’ll look particularly amazing with the Journey denim midi dress by Golden Goose and the Prisma glossed leather tote by Ferragamo.

Finally, who could resist adding the Lucey buckle heels by Dolce & Gabbana to their lineup? These classic heels will work as well for stylish weekend looks as they will with floaty summer dresses on vacation. I’ll be styling mine with the Gete striped cotton halterneck midi dress by LemLem and mini Wallace intrecciato leather shoulder bag by Bottega Veneta for all future city breaks!
