While you may be wearing a lot of cool sweats outfits these days, I thought a bit of summer-outfit inspiration could be of interest to either test out now or save and reference in the future. Specifically, I wanted to focus on cute dress ensembles. But I’m not talking about crazy high-concept looks here. Instead, I wanted to zero in on some of the prettiest outfits I’ve seen over the last few months that feature just dresses and sneakers.
What you’ll notice in the ’fits highlighted in the IG imagery coming your way is the dress silhouettes featured are statement-making enough on their own that they don’t really require much else other than a comfy pair of kicks. With all that in mind, keep scrolling to uncover a new chic look to try and shop inspired pieces, if you’re shopping at the moment.
This is one look you just might want to live in with the black knit dress and no-fail Converse high-tops.
