Hello to you lovely, thanks for coming by. I’m glad you did because I’m about to talk about the best shoes to wear with your favorite floral dresses.This one’s an important one because floral dresses are gorgeous and should be worn often! 

I’ve been asked before how I pick the shoes I do with my floral outfits, and you know… I have to say it’s super easy to match them! But I guess I base my selection on what I’m doing that day to make sure my look matches my activities. Nobody wears heels to the batting cages type of deal, you know? 

Anyway, I’m going to talk about 10 cute shoe types that look great with floral dresses. Hopefully these ideas that may help you out if you’re ever stumped on what to wear with yours!

1. Pumps

Pumps will never let you down and will always dress your look up! I don’t care if they’re peep toe, square toe, stiletto, chunky heel, velvet, or studded. Floral dresses look stellar with them every single time.

This first floral dress is proof that heels don’t mean you need to wear them out somewhere fancy. This is a gorgeous floral maxi that does really well with strappy heels and a floppy sun hat. It’s a perfect lunch date or girls day outfit!

2. Mules

Mules are like… this secret gem of a shoe you didn’t know you needed to have. They’re like… a flat/ slide hybrid and they’re pretty fun to wear. Definitely don’t want to miss out pairing these with your floral dresses!

Check out these pink pointed toe mules with this pink floral dress! I mean, WOW these mules are awesome. The pattern on them alone is amazing. This is a great example of wearing two different patterns together. Take notes ladies!

3. Ankle Boots

Once you wear ankle boots with a floral dress, or any dress for that matter, it automatically feels like a fall dress. I’m a huge fall and autumn lover, so the fashion that comes with it always has a special place in my heart!

For starters, this is a super cute look. I can’t pinpoint if it is the color blue of the dress I love, the black boots, or that she’s wearing a great shade of lipstick. Whatever is happening here, I love it. Plus these ankle boots are perfect. Normally these wouldn’t go with dresses, right? Tides have turned!

4. Lace Up Heels

5. Sneakers

Wearing sneakers and dresses is like… eating peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches. It may sound crazy, but it’s the most delicious sandwich. In this case, the sneakers are the peanut butter because peanut butter is delicious with almost everything- just like sneakers go with almost everything.

Here is a pair of tan mules which look great with her white floral dress. It isn’t a very busy dress to begin with, so I like that she kept it toned down with her shoe selection. 

Mules with floral dresses of all patterns and lengths work so well together! Do you have a favorite?

6. Wedges

Wedges are a great shoe to wear when you want to add that height and some sass without getting too sexy. Plus, they’re incredibly comfortable. Check these out!

I love that these colored lace up heels aren’t exactly a color in the floral dress she’s wearing, but they still work really well. There’re somewhere on that same pallet and it’s just a happy place.  These are a great example of shoes that look great with casual floral dresses!

7. Flats

Flats are a favorite for workplaces or places you need your toes covered up. They’re… a little more dressy than regular sandals or shoes, don’t you think?

Can we start with saying how amazing this girl’s hair is? It totally is. Her flats have straps around the ankles which is really cute, especially because she's managed to match her purse to it! All of it goes with her floral dress, which has a lot going on!

Pumps

Pumps will never let you down and will always dress your look up! I don’t care if they’re peep toe, square toe, stiletto, chunky heel, velvet, or studded. Floral dresses look stellar with them every single time.

This second floral dress is a beautiful one and perfect for nicer or more formal events. Her nude pumps with a bow accent on the toe are so sweet and really complete her look!

8. Sandals

Sandals are one of those shoes that every girl owns a pair of. This means no matter what, you have no reason to say that you don’t have shoes to match your floral dress!

These simple sandals are that pair that goes with everything, so of course with a floral dress they’re going to work.  Even if you own flip flops, you can wear them with your summer dresses.

Wedges

Besides this being a super cute picture, you can easily see that the white straps on her espadrille wedges pull from the white portions of her dress.  Hello, why wouldn’t you wear wedges with a floral dress! They scream spring and summer!

So, I know we can’t see the front of this outfit here but if you aren’t sold on wedges and floral dresses just from looking at the back of this outfit I’m not sure it’ll ever happen.  I love these wedges. They’re cute and they know it, but they’re not over the top. A win in my book.

Flats

I love that this first outfit shows a floral long sleeve dress with bright yellow flats. I can’t really tell if there is yellow in the dress (I hope there is), but even if there isn’t the yellow is still a great pop of color! EASY, right?

Ankle Boots

Once you wear ankle boots with a floral dress, or any dress for that matter, it automatically feels like a fall dress. I’m a huge fall and autumn lover, so the fashion that comes with it always has a special place in my heart!

Here is a great look with over the knee heeled boots and a floral skater dress! This is such a sexy combination, which is proof that floral patterns can be sexy too! Imagine this dress with mules or flats and compare it to these boots. Two very different looks, right?

Lace Up Heels

Lace up heels are incredibly versatile and add a lot of oomph to your look! They’re for sure the best of both the sexy shoe and playful shoe worlds and work well with any dress- especially floral ones.

I know we can’t see the entire floral dress here, but the focus is the shoes and how they look with the print! The answer is AMAZING, in case you couldn’t see. Her blush lace up heels compliment the light pink and femine flow of her dress and it doesn’t get any better!
