It’s sandal season! That means weekly pedicures — and enough shoe options for your feet to reinvent themselves every day of the week. So, which styles are ruling for summer 2015? Let’s take a look at a few of my faves.
For those of you who avoid the perils of high heels, this is your lucky season. Flat sandals are the go-to for both everyday wear and those endless summer nights. Go sporty with metallic details, sexy with strappy lace-ups or sophisticated in neutrals of camel, white or black. Pair them with your favorite romper or casual cutoffs for effortless style.
If your feet are itching to wave goodbye to boots and bask in the sunshine once again, this summer’s sexy and cool strappy sandal options are a must. The gladiator is having a major moment, while cage heels in a rainbow of colors are popping up from the office to date night. Perfect for summer weddings, strappy sandals are also a great option for mixing laid-back separates with a show-stopping shoe.
I love a chunky heel — and so should you! Not only are they the most comfortable high-heel sandal because of the grounding nature of the stacked heel but they master the art of modern vintage appeal. Try pairing your favorite chunky heels with the ’70s revival trend of wide-leg pants and jumpsuits for a chic statement.
We’ve seen the sporty chic trend all over the runways the past few years, and this season footwear is no exception. Slip-on sandals with perforation, shiny metallic, rubber and more are taking the casual sandal to new heights. It’s a great marriage of fashionable form and function. These sandals are amazing for slipping out of your sneakers for the walk home from the gym, or casual days matched with joggers, a nylon jacket or a perforated dress.
Another comfy option that adds great height, the wedge has absolutely maintained its footwear dominance over the past few years. This season, keep it fresh with an espradrille, cork bottom, metallic or faux croc straps, sporty perforation or the color of the season — white. I love these for workday footwear, as the comforts lasts all day but you still look fabulous.
So, which sandal (or sandals, I should say) will you be taking home this season? You better clear a little extra space in your closet now, because you’ll want these fun and flirty new shoes to be front and center. Happy shopping!
