23 Dresses To Pair With White Sneakers For The Perfect Laid Back Look — PHOTOS

Summer may be my favorite time for activities, but the heat can be unbearable, often leaving me feeling lethargic and in need of an ice bath. Wearing minimal but comfortable looks is key to surviving the season, and most crucial are dresses to wear with white sneakers. These will help you get the ultimate laid back summer look that's equal parts chic and ready for any adventure.

Unlike any other season, summer is arguably packed with the largest number of activities, all usually spent outside. Biking, hiking, brunching, swimming, wake boarding, bouldering, and taking long walks are all on the menu, which means you've got to be comfortable and versatile. And what crosses those two things off the list more than a dress and white sneaker combo? After all, the biggest fashion it-girls are all doing it right now. We can count on Gigi Hadid to rock the white sneaker trend with pretty much anything.

Although I love pairing sneaks with sweatpants and trousers, they look equally chic with dresses. The plus side? Dresses are way breezier and lighter in weight, making them the ideal pieces for those sweltering days.

In honor of hitting the halfway mark of summer, check out these super breezy and cool dresses to take you through any hot adventure.
