Summer Occasions: Summer Sandals

Step into summer with fresh new footwear

It’s sandal weather! That means it’s time to pack away your winter footwear and break out some new fun colors and styles. From flat sandals to wedges, stacked heels and slides, there’s a perfect summer sandal for everyone this season. Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. The Stacked Heel

A stacked heel sandal is a must this summer, thanks to its wearable heel (so much easier to walk in than a traditional high heel) and street chic style. I love this metallic finish of these Franco Sarto sandals, which will take you from day to night with ease.

  1. The Modern Thong

Fans of the popular thong sandal will love this twist on the classic from Ugg, with a pop of color, festive tassels and ankle-hugging side buckles. The look is more refined than the original — yet equally as versatile.

  1. The Loafer Sandal

The slide is definitely the shoe of the season, and I love this menswear-inspired take on the trend by Calvin Klein. The metallic fringe is fresh in all the available colors — especially white. Try these with an ankle or wide-leg pant, or sheath dress for the office.

  1. The Mini Wedge

A more petite version of the classic wedge, these mini wedge sandals from 4. State is the perfect city sandal, thanks to its walkability, studded details and lace-up styling. These are perfect with denim or your go-to boho dresses and skirts.

  1. The Updated Wedge

This summer, the wedge is back in new forms, like this Nine West cutie, complete with a braided jute wedge and lace-up ankle strap. They are a great choice for daytime events and casual Fridays.

  1. The Romantic Slide

A leather bow topper adds just enough femininity to these must-have slides my Michael Kors. Go full-on girlie girl with the rose hue, sophisticated but sweet with the khaki tone or femme fatale with the fierce yet pretty black color. They are a great choice for the office or a lunch date.

  1. The Platform Sandal

Need a little height without the heel? The platform sandal is your stylish shoe answer! I love the braided jute platform bottom, as well as the fun and colorful adornments on these Marc Fisher sandals. Plus, the ankle strap makes these the perfect match for your favorite ankle-length denim.


Which is your favorite summer sandal trend? With so many great — and comfortable — options, why not try them all?
