Styling maxi dresses and skirts can be a bit tricky, but the options are absolutely stunning!

Once you learn how to pair them with different kinds of shoes, you'll fall in love with the combinations. Here are the shoes for long dresses that can bring out the best in your look.

Flowy maxi dresses, fancy gowns, elegant tea-length skirts— long dresses are a fashion staple that best emphasizes a woman's feminine charm and silhouette.

Whether for sunny days or cozy winter nights, formal events or casual every-days, there are different styles of long dresses to suit the occasion. To bring out your most gorgeous version of that outfit, you will need to complement your dress with the right pair of shoes.


The classic partner to evening gowns and long dresses, high heels and stilettos are the ultimate head-turners as they truly accentuate a woman's figure by making you look taller and slimmer. As a dressier type of footwear, these are best worn for formal and ceremonial events, like weddings.

Can't stand high heels? Try pumps or kitten heels. Low heeled-shoes offer subtle elevation yet the same stylish elegance as high heels. 


For a more casual style with satin and maxi dresses, wedges are your best friend. They strike the perfect balance between comfort and sophistication— they're the comfier alternative to high heels and the more upscale choice to flats.

Espadrille wedges are perfect for all-day wear in the warmer season, while open-toed pairs are a hit in autumn fashion.
