The Essential Guide to Choosing Flats for Dresses

Selecting the right flats is essential for achieving a harmonious ensemble. Consider factors such as comfort, occasion, and personal style when choosing the perfect. Opting for high-quality materials like Italian leathers, suedes, and satins ensures durability so the luxury of the shoe will last for years to come. When coordinating colors, aim for complementary shades that enhance your overall look. Whether you prefer classic neutrals or bold hues, the key is to create a cohesive ensemble that helps you exude confidence and sophistication.

From our water-resistant suede knee-high boot options to classic loafer silhouettes and trendy platform flat sandals, each shoe style offers its own unique charm. Whichever shoe style you choose, you can embrace versatility and comfort without compromising fashion.

Seasonal Pairings: Flats for Every Dress and Season

You’ll be able to transition seamlessly from season to season with the right pair of flats once you’ve mastered our styling tips. If you need some inspiration, here are our favorite flats to wear with dresses throughout the year..

Spring and Summer Staples: Light and Airy Pairings

1) Masculine / Feminine

Wearing beautifully feminine summer dresses during the hot months is a no-brainer. Why not add a bit of edge with a black patent pointed-toe Fiona Flat.


2) The Tiniest Bit of Lift

All of the ease, comfort, and walkability of a true flat, the Rimini Sandal gives you just a little added height while feeling like a flat - no need for any high heel hassle. Available in both black and tan Italian leather, these platform strappy sandals will pair well with dresses of every length, from a bold mini dress to your favorite midi dress or maxi dress. Perfect for a day or night outdoors, these sandals can be styled as the perfect beach wedding shoe  or for backyard concerts. A raffia handbag would be the perfect finishing touch, playing off of the textured bottom of this comfortable shoe.


3) Hotline Bling

If you are opting to wear a neutral dress - think black, ivory, or tan - have some fun with your flats. The gold Fiona pointed-toe heeled loafer or silver loafer adds an unexpected pop of metallic while staying neutral.


Fall and Winter Wonders: Staying Stylish and Warm

4) Accessorize It

Do not underestimate the power of a good sock. An ultra-fine knit or sheer tulle pair worn with any of the Fiona Flats will have people wondering when you became so cool. Pairing this look with a drop waist dress, bonus points for a pleated skirt, will turn you into the trendsetter of your friend group.

5) Knee Boot

The beauty of a water-resistant Italian suede knee-high boot? It keeps you warm. Fine to wear on its own in the Fall, layer up with tall socks and tights throughout the winter. Play with proportions and dresses of different lengths and volumes - you really cannot go wrong! The Alberta Boot, available in both black and brown, is sure to become your new best friend.


6) Ankle Boot

For days when you can get away with a shorter silhouette, the Aida Boot is an extremely cool and comfortable shoe option. Combat-style and available in both black and white, this ankle boot will add edge to every look. Great with bare legs, it too can be layered up with crew socks or sheer tights. Worn with a feminine dress, it adds a nice masculine juxtaposition that will make your outfit pop. Don’t be afraid to wear them with a shorter mini dress, too - they’re so beautiful, you’ll want to let them shine.


Occasion-Based Styling: Flats for Every Event

From casual outings to more formal events, flats shoes offer endless styling possibilities for every occasion. For casual days and everyday elegance, opt for sleek flats or trendy flatforms that strike the perfect balance between comfort and style. When dressing up for formal affairs, elevate your look with pointed-toe flats or metallic designs that add a touch of glamor to your ensemble. Accessories such as statement jewelry and clutches can further enhance your outfit, adding a personalized touch to your overall look.

Beyond the Basics: Unique and Trendy Flat Designs

Step out of your comfort zone and embrace unique flat shoe designs that make a statement. Mavette offers flat shoes in many different colors and textures, from ivory and black linen, muted metallic leathers, and water-resistant suedes. By contrasting the texture of your shoe’s material with the fabric of your dress, you will add a dose of visual intrigue that most outfits crave.

Embrace the versatility and elegance of flats paired with any dress style. Whether you're running errands in your comfiest denim dress or attending a formal event in your favorite little black dress, flats offer the perfect blend of comfort and style for every occasion. Experiment with different styles, materials, and colors to find your perfect pairing, and let your personal style shine through. With the perfect shoe, you can elevate any ensemble with sophistication and grace, leaving a lasting impression wherever you go with Mavette.
