heels or trainers? how to get the most out of your new season dress!

with new in ulla johnson silks for the festive season

Today I’m talking two key footwear options that you can wear with a dress.   Heels or trainers…. Da dah, da dahhhhh!   This is going to give us loads of options for our dress purchase and more occasions to wear it!

When you purchase a good quality dress, you really want to get as much wear out of it as possible.   For instance, both of the outfits featured in this post would be perfect for a dressy lunch or one of the many festive parties on your calendar over the next few weeks.   When paired with divine heels and gorgeous jewellry, you will feel a million dollars and it really ups the ante.


DRESS: Ulla Johnson Nour Dress
BAG: Sancia Madelina Mini in Black
SUNGLASSES: Vieux Venice Sunglasses
SHOES: (similar) Rag & Bone Tamira Sandal
EARRINGS: Fairley Pearl Twist Link Earrings
JACKET: IRO Paris Aidan Jacket


On the other hand, tie a denim jacket around your waist and wear it with some cool trainers for a casual look.   This adds a street-style appeal and can make it a more wearable everyday piece.   By changing your footwear options up a little, we create a multi purpose wardrobe item.   We all like that option, right?


There are just so many ways to wear a dress (apart from the obvious).   I love to experiment by wearing one over some destructed denim jeans or skinnies.   You can tuck it in at the waist so it’s kind of like an oversized top.

I would also wear either of these dresses over a bikini on an island holiday with jewelled flats!   By choosing a universal colour or print, a dress can stay in the wardrobe for ages and be reinvented year after year.

These are just a few of the ways to get as much wear out of it as possible and make the most out of the purchase!

In the end, it’s all about versatility.   Both of these gorgeous Ulla Johnson silk dresses are absolutely beautiful.   We have the ability to completely change the look with how how we decide to style it.

So back to the initial question before I got way off track with my dress talk… For me, the answer is BOTH!   I love to wear my dresses with both sneakers AND heels (and every other footwear option in between)   It’s a win, win, win!

I hope this has helped with some ideas to wear your favourite dress and you can re invent it!

Lots of love xx
