Due to their nature, dresses have a way of becoming the main focus of your ensemble—which inevitably makes accessorizing them a bit of a challenge. After all, you want your accessories to complement your dress rather than take the attention away from it.
And when it comes down to your shoes, it might feel as though you only have so many options to choose from. Look, it’s easy to reach for your go-to sneakers, sandals, or booties—we get it. But if you’re finding yourself in a sartorial rut, there are a handful of chic (and unexpected) ankle boots for dresses that will always look good.
