Why go barefoot this summer when there are so many cute shoes to choose from? Just like clothing trends for spring, color is a major player this season. Don’t worry about busting your budget either—great summer shoes and sandals can be found at any price point from bargain city to super-chic designer versions. Take a look at the best of the summer: Bright flat sandals can be worn as a neutral. Introducing this “pop of color” is a great way to make a plain outfit extra snazzy.
Wedges will give you a lift…literally. Adding a heel always looks dressier than flats. They are easy to wear, and comfy, too. A new kind of wedge is a “flat-form”, and it’s essentially a raised flat sandal. Perfect for the “vertically challenged”!
Cap-toe flats are a fun spin on the classic ballet flat. Other interesting trimmings include bows, buckles, chains and studs…some of which are pointy and could double as a weapon!
The classic, preppy boat shoe is hotter than ever. Shown in bright color combinations and prints, they only confirm the notion that “prep is back”. My favorites are from the new Milly-Sperry collaboration, and are tres stylish.
Espadrilles are a summer staple, and with the popularity of Tom’s (the shoe company that donates a pair of shoes for every shoe purchased), they are a “feel good” shoe in more ways than one…look cute, comfy feet AND save the planet.
Just be sure that when you’re sporting those great new sandals, that your feet are pretty and properly pedicured. Toes should not hang over the sides, heels can’t spill over the backs, and the tops/sides of your feet should not “pudge out” between the straps. Got it? Now, let those “piggies” out and enjoy the summer!
