Slides are a closet staple every year. Honestly, I wear mine so much when it gets nice in the spring and summer that by the time the next year rolls around, I need a new pair. And this season, there’s a slide trend!
I’m talking about puffy leather slides in colorful colors. Let’s call it the Bottega Veneta effect. It’s fun, it’s cheery, and most importantly, it’s comfortable. And you don’t have to break the bank to get the Bottega look. For example, how about this seafoam green Sam Edelman pair? A lovely lilac shade makes these Maddox sandals irresistible. Bubblegum pink is one of the colors that just makes me smile, and these J.Crew sandals are no exception. Anthropologie’s ice blue knotted sandals are cool as can be.
The sleek minimalist of the last few years isn’t going anywhere, though. A perfectly chic tan pair of raised slides can take you from day to night, and these flat knotted slides are pretty great too. I’m obsessed with the oversized buckle on these ATP Atelier shoes, which add a little bit of dressiness and glam. Dear Frances’s double-knotted black pair will give you an instant dose of cool girl edge.
Somewhere in between the two trends, you can bridge the gap between the two with this ruched white leather pair, which I would love to wear with white jeans. These Vince Camuto slides have knit uppers, giving off a particularly beachy vibe that I can’t get enough of. The espadrille bottoms and braided silver upper on these Donald Pliner shoes give a little extra pizzaz.
Looking fo something a little bit dressier? These Karl Lagerfeld black sandals are embellished with chain-link hardware and seriously fab rhinestones.
