There are endless maxi dress styles, ranging from beach maxis to formal maxis. With the wide array of style options it is tricky to decide on footwear to pair with a maxi dress.

Shoes to Wear with Maxi Dress in Spring

Maxi dresses are popular options in the Spring as the weather warms and beautiful floral dresses and cozy knit dresses make an appearance in our everyday wear. Springtime can also bring a lot of unpredictable weather. Therefore, there are several shoe styles you’ll want to consider wearing with your maxi dresses. A few Spring classics include ankle boots, sneakers, loafers, and chelsea boots. 

Let’s talk about rain. If you live in a particularly wet region, opt for a nice waterproof chelsea boot. This is one of the most versatile boot styles you can own.

Running errands or have a casual maxi dress? You’re best bet will be a classic white sneaker. A chic white sneaker is a must have for any wardrobe.

Going to the office or church? Pair your maxi dress with a timeless loafer! Ankle boots are also a good option if you have a dressier look you’re going for.

Shoes to Wear with a Maxi Dress in Summer

In the summertime, my FAVORITE shoes to pair with maxi dresses are  sandals and flip flops! A timeless pairing of a flowy linen dress with a chic pair of sandals is all you need to look stylish during warmer months.

For a more dressier look, you can also go with wedge sandals or strappy heels. These are great options for casual and formal weddings, depending on dress code.

Shoes to Wear with Maxi Dress in Fall

Many types of shoes can be worn with a long dress in the fall including ankle bootsflats, and mules. The key is to find a pair that complements the style of your dress and the occasion.

In the Fall, boots are a great casual choice for a long dress. They will keep your feet warm while still looking stylish.

Need a dressier shoe for the Fall? Try a flat! Flats come in so many different styles and are nearly universal with maxi dresses.

For warmer temps, opt for mules with your maxi dress in the fall. A mule will allow your feet to breath while still fitting the season. Mules come in leather, suede, and other cozy fabrics that are popular in the Fall.

Below are a few different shoe styles that show exactly how you can wear a maxi dress in the Fall.

Shoes to Wear with a Long Dress in Winter

Winter brings a few limitations to footwear, especially with maxi dresses. The goal is to stay warm while still maintaining your style. To do this, I recommend Lug/Combat boots or a pair of knee high boots

Shoes to Wear with a Long Dress to a Wedding

The two best shoe options with a wedding guest maxi dress are pumps and strappy heels!

Nude heels are great for Spring and Summer weddings and darker colors are the best for Fall and Winter weddings. These are my go-to strappy sandals!
