I was under prepared when I escaped to NYC last week. I hadn’t bought summer sandals yet this year and somehow only came on the plane with one and a half pairs of shoes. Typical. And one of those was my sandals from two years ago which promptly bit the dust. Because I’m now in the market for a new pair, I thought you might be too and compiled a list of my favorite summer sandal trends. Enjoy!
Platforms. I’ve been hesitant on the platforms because I’m now old enough to remember the platforms from the 90s and it kind of gives me the heebie jeebies. But, there have been some rad ones that have been shaking me out of it. And have you noticed how Tevas are in?! I saw someone wearing a pair at the Rose Bowl this past weekend and they looked so comfortable.
Colors. They can never go wrong in my book. The only thing is, I love finding a pair that work for almost every ensemble.
Simple. I tend to be more of a simple sandal kind of girl and there are still some cute options.
Prints. Animals, ethnic, graphics! So many cute options.
Tassel. I love a shoe with tassels and these sandals are adorable. I might go for the ones in the middle as I think they’d work with anything.
White. Ok, Birkenstocks are totally back. I’ve never been a fan because my feet are so slight they don’t really fit well, but when I was in NYC and my shoes fell apart, I decided to try them on and they were immediately heaven. They aren’t kidding when they say they’re comfortable. I prefer them in bright white and love the other white options.
Espadrilles. I have always loved espadrilles and now you can find them in all the trends: colors, platforms, you name it!
