Summer is the perfect time of year to wear a maxi dress. It can be worn on its own with sandals or with fashionable trainers and a cardigan for cooler days; in fact, maxis are so versatile that pretty much any shoe style can be worn, making them everyone’s favourite item of clothing.

Flat sandals

The joy of flat shoes is that they go with anything and can be worn all day long and for many different occasions. Depending on where you are going, you can wear your maxi with anything from a gladiator design to a pair of sandals with jewels or plain fabric straps.

Flip flops

Summer is a great excuse to wear flip flops, letting your feet feel the air and giving your toes a summer makeover. Flip flops come in every colour and pattern you could hope for, so choosing one that suits your outfit should be easy. Flip flops are also easy to slip into a bag – if you need to wear a more formal shoe during the day, you can slip them on once you leave the office. They are perfect for the warm weather that is predicted to return.


Wedges are very on-trend this summer and look great with any outfit. Why not try a navy maxi dress with a denim jacket for a really cool, relaxed look? Add some hooped earrings and you are ready to hit the town. You will find a navy maxi dress available at AX Paris and other fashion brands.


If you like to wear heels for an evening out or are attending a special occasion, they can add to the sense of glamour and look fantastic worn with bold chunky jewellery and sophisticated hairstyles. If you want to add a finishing touch, take along a cotton scarf or shawl for when the evening gets cooler.


Espadrilles have come a long way and you can now get lace-ups and styles with ankle straps alongside the more traditional slip-on styles. A step up from flip flops but still very summery, these are great for the weekend.

The choice is yours

Whatever shoes you like to wear on your feet, from formal to trainers or even clogs, they will go with a maxi dress.
