It can be difficult to know how to make a mini dress more powerful, especially when it comes to choosing shoes. This can be a fashion dilemma for some, as the right shoe can make an outfit or break it. As the sartorially-wise Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City said, “A shoe that is comfortable will make the walk more enjoyable.”

Here’s our ultimate guide to the shoes that will make your mini dress look great. If it helps, there’s no such thing as a right shoe or a wrong shoe. It all depends on your style and the occasion. Get ready to elevate your mini dress with these nine shoe options that you will never tire of.

Chunky Shoes

A chunky shoe can solve a lot of wardrobe (lifestyle) problems. With little effort, the platform silhouette will literally take your mini dress to a new level of style. It’s perfect for the office, or a night out. You can incorporate different platform styles into your closet the next time you wear a mini dress, from clogs to sandals or even–gasp–espadrilles.

Ballet Flats

The ballet flat has returned to the fashion radar. This shoe is chic, elegant and comfortable. The next time you want to wear a dress mini, choose a girly shoe. Your mini dress will look high-fashion week no matter which style you slip on.

Combat Boots

It’s impossible to have a limit on sartorial expression, even when it comes to something so timeless and classic as the mini dress. If you’re looking to give your feminine silhouette a little edge, consider a combat boot. You can add a surprise element to your next outing by wearing lace-up boots. Wear a denim or flannel jacket of your choice and you will be transformed into a 2014 Tumblr.

Kitten Heels

Kitten heels used to be a controversial style. But now the pointed-toe pumps are a wardrobe must-have. Choose the refined style for a mini dress that has a little more oomph. You can wear the tiny heel all day without feeling uncomfortable.

Casual Kicks

The “wrong shoes theory” is something I strongly believe in. There’s a lot of power in an unexpected pairing, and sneakers are never wrong. (Cue Demi’s famous question from the last century: “Who told me I couldn’t wear Converse with my dress ?”). It doesn’t matter which pair of sneakers are worn, they will always make your mini dress casual.

Tall Boots

You can’t go wrong with a pair of cute tall knee-high booties to match your mini dress. This is a versatile pair that can be worn in any season. The leather is sleek and stylish, adding a touch of class to any outfit. It will also keep you warm during chilly weather. Over-the-knee booties play with proportions, adding height to any look. If you dare, you can opt for a pair that reaches your thighs.

Preppy Loafers

A pair of stylish loafers will add a subtle touch to your walk. Loafers are another example of a “wrong” shoe that has been made right. Bieber’s choice of shoe elevates the short hemline. Add some slouchy hosiery to complete the look.

Strappy Sandals

Even on a hot day in the summer, I don’t wear flip-flops. I prefer to wear my mini-dress with sandals. Sandals are timeless and will never go out of fashion, no matter if they’re strappy, adjustable, or not. Try different sandals in different colors, metallics, and heel heights to give your outfit a new feel.

Cowboy Boots

The country look has become more popular than ever thanks to A-listers such as Beyonce, Kasey Musgraves, and many others. As a Southern girl born and raised, I have always loved wearing a short dress with cowboy booties. Western fashion is fun and festive, but it’s also not reserved only for concerts. A flirty mini-dress will look great with a cowboy boot. Wear the hat to complete the look. Yeehaw!
