Summer days are to be enjoyed to the fullest and in order to make the most of them it is important to indulge in a few days at the beach or in the countryside, with refreshing drinks, meeting with friends; spending some time outside, but… it’s so hot!
The hot weather this season brings can be a bit annoying, pushing us to look for alternatives to keep us cooler and more comfortable; however, since leaving beauty aside is not an option for many people, summer dresses are starting to parade through the wardrobes. Beautiful varieties of dresses, ideal for high temperatures and versatile for different occasions.
You could say it’s easy to choose a dress to match the occasion, but choosing the shoes to go with it might not be, so what kind of shoes go best with which dress? How do you choose shoes for a summer dress?
Since the best footwear options for a summer dress are not always sneakers or heels, we bring you a small guide to know what shoes to wear wSince the best footwear options for a summer dress are not always trainers or heels, we bring you a small guide to know what shoes to wear with different types of summer dresses; so you can enjoy these days to the maximum, without losing style or freshness.
Maxi Dress & Sandals
The maxi-dress is a classic, a nice long summer dress up to the ankles, ideal for different occasions, according to the shape of the upper part or even depending on the fabric it is made of.

Now what? A pair of pretty sandals seems to be the best choice of shoes for long summer dresses; in a neutral colour to maintain the elegance of the look and, why not, a pair of shiny details like the Havaianas You Trancoso Premium have.

Shirt dress & Espadrilles
RRegardless of the season or how hot it is outside, events that require a more formal look still exist. Whether it’s for a business meeting, brunch or cause for celebration, a shirt dress is a fantastic option.
Just because it’s more formal attire doesn’t mean your look has to be boring; the shirt dress will give you the opportunity to play with the length a little bit, depending on what makes you feel more comfortable, or if the temperature calls for something different. This way you can experiment with colours and patterns and, of course, shoes!
We recommend you try a couple of espadrilles. Havaianas offers several styles for you to try out, such as the Espadrille Eco II, which have a super flexible sole, perfect for busy days and you can find them in seasonal colours like green and blue; or if you want to give a fun twist to your look, a pair of espadrilles with more detail like the Mule Loafter Print or the Havaianas Espadrille Fur Light are the right shoe to elevate your outfit.
Slip Dress & Sneakers
The slip dress has been at the forefront for the last few years, a trend that has become a staple in any wardrobe, making it a highly adaptable type of dress; it can be worn for a formal occasion with the right pair of heels, for a party or with a street style approach using a pair of comfortable and trendy trainers. But the proposal we bring you here is more of a lounge look, where the comfort and modern touch is not only provided by the dress, but also by the shoes.
At first glance the Havaianas Top Home Fluffy are exactly what your feet crave after an exhaustive day of walking, but they go much further, as the small amount of fluffy fur is the ideal accessory to make your look stand out without the inconvenience of overheating. These shoes are the perfect match between a pair of simple flip-flops and a super trendy shoe!
Bodycon & Slides
There’s nothing more on-trend than hugging your silhouette, and what better way to do it than with a bodycon and slides? Whatever your body type, a beautiful dress that highlights your figure is a wonderful summer option. After all, all bodies are summer bodies!
We recommend getting a dress in a neutral shade to keep the look classic and accessorise with a pair of slides, such as the Havaianas Slide Classic or, for a little twist, go for a pair of metallic slides.
Mini dress & Platforms
Nothing screams summer and youth like a mini dress.
This is the perfect time of year to get out in the sun, let it caress your skin and enjoy the delicious warm weather. The mini dress is a very popular style from the early 2000’s that is back on trend, so there’s still time to give it a try.

Our recommendation is to get to know the more classic and simple styles of this short dress, which can be paired to perfection with a bit of jewellery.
Also, one of its best qualities is the ability to play with proportions. The mini dress will make your legs look much longer than they are, and we think that the perfect way to take advantage of this look are some platform sandals like the Havaianas Slim Flatform Glitter, whose touch of glitter will make them an ideal accessory for any pretty summer dress.
