Must-Have Sandals for Summer
June 4, 2014
It’s about time to shed the rest of your winter gear and greet the fresh spring air with open arms. As sad as it is, that means taking a hiatus from your riding boots, your combat boots, your snow boots, basically all of your boots – except your booties, those can stay. Now, there’s no need for an empty hole on your shoe shelves. That just sounds depressing. Instead, stock up your closet with tons and tons of sandals. We’re sharing our favorites of the season with you!
The Wedge Sandal
This is particularly for those occasions when you need a little height. If you’re attending a graduation or Father’s Day brunch, pair your light springy dress with a solid wedge that’s comfy but still stylish
. These shoes will make you look and feel confident.
Our Favorite: Bevrlie in Cognac from Steve Madden, $89.95
The Everyday Sandal
Springtime is full of floral skirts, dresses, and cut off shorts. Invest in neutral-colored sandals
that will go with absolutely anything. It’s like the spring version of your brown riding boots!
Our Favorite: Crisscross Sightseer Sandal in Warm Sand from Madewell, $59.50
The Flip Flop
If you’re lucky and live in beach city or if you simply have a friend with a pool, you will definitely need a pair of flip flops. We suggest ditching your old pair of rubber flip flops that somehow make your feet look huge. Opt, instead, for a nice leather pair.
That way, you can even wear them when you’re not sporting your swimsuit.
Our Favorite: Rio Sandals from J. Crew, $50 (currently 30% off!)
The Colored Sandal
For those days when you’re stepping out in a simple white dress or all neutral colors, spice up your outfit
with colorful accessories. It’s always nice to have a colorful pair of shoes. Plus, you’ll find that they go with more than you think.
Our Favorite: Opening Ceremony Miranda Sandals from ShopBop, $195
The Dressy Sandal
Sandals can be worn even if you’re going out for drinks
with the girls or a nice dinner date with a guy you just met. Heels are definitely not a requirement. All you need to do is find a dressier pair, and you’re good to go.
