Oh the pleasure of open-toed shoe season! Summer sandal season is here! And I can’t help myself when it comes to summer sandals. They are abundant and they are cute and I could literally scarf up a pair every time I find myself wandering through a shoe department. Sure, good basics are the foundation of any great summer look, but a cute summer sandal ultimately can define it. More often than not we hear, “Where did you get those cute summer sandals?” over “Where did you find that white tee?”. That’s why I couldn’t just write one post on summer shoes this season.
If you missed it, I rounded up the best pair of summer shoes for travel here but I had to follow up with a post on the best summer sandals I have found for all season long. The summer sandal landscape is filled with plenty of variety. Yet no matter what type of summer sandal you plan on adding to your closet, I guarantee you will get miles out of them. Because summer sandals are forever practical!
This round-up covers all the bases: everyday, beach ready, dressy and those ones that work perfectly for everything in between! And what is even better, is that there is so much on sale right now, for so early in the season. That makes picking up a pair (or two or three!) that much easier!
Cute Summer Sandals
The easiest and most versatile sandal to slide into, a flat sandal is the darling of the warm weather season! Having a few neutral options to choose from makes them easy to pair with just about anything. Flats in a pretty pattern or color will instantly elevate a simple ensemble.
Just in the mood to throw on a tee and jeans for a night out? An embellished sandal adds that little touch of effort you need to complete your look! For adding a little glamour to a beach holiday look or paired with a summer caftan or maxi, having an embellished sandal in your closet is a must for all those times you need a little “extra” with your outfit.
The on trend sandal of the season, the PVC sandal is clearly (haha!) having a moment. A modern twist on the Cinderella slipper, PVC has been worked into every style of sandal this season. And even though it is taking over the fashion world right now, it still screams practicality and neutrality!
Add a little height to your summer look with a chic wedged sandal. These sandals are more stable and comfortable than your average heeled sandal but still maintain plenty of style.
Platform sandals are out in full force this season but there are some great variations beyond the traditional foam footbed. I love the marriage of a leather strap and an espadrille footing in this updated comfort classic!
Block Heel Sandals
A block heel sandal takes your summer look from work to weekend adding height, stability and practicality without sacrificing style.
Give your rubber flip-flops an upgrade and instead opt for glossy or leather ones. Besides being a little more chic, they avoid the dreaded “smacking” sound!
