With summer finally here, gone are the bitter cold days that call for shearling-lined boots, suede knee-highs, and velvet loafers. Instead, give those toes a little more time in the sun and slip into something seasonally-friendly. If there’s any wardrobe addition that instantly transforms any look into a summertime one, it’s a pair of sandals. Indulge in the latest summer sandal trends, and trade your ankle booties for some espadrilles, a pair of sneakers for an ankle-tie kitten heel, or swap out those pointy-toed pumps for a beach-ready chunky slide.
Some sandals will dress up your sundress, while others might be a better fit for your morning coffee run, but the truth of the matter is, every style of sandal is welcome in your summer repertoire.
