With the right shoes — high espadrilles for the petite set, strappy flats for taller girls — anyone can look like a star in them. Plus, you just about can’t wear a style that’s more comfortable. Not to mention, they’re oh-so-fun to accessorize! And, with maxi dresses, you don’t even have to worry about coordinating a top and a bottom.
