Summer is all about the sandal. Don’t be afraid to let those toes breathe! There’s one for everyone, whatever your style is. A sporty one to slip into, a scrappy one for those late nights on restaurant patios, a puffy pair for when you’re feeling trendy, or a pair of platforms if you want to keep comfort first. Read on to shop our summer shoe edit.
Bottega Veneta’s iconic puffy mules started a major trend. The puffy shoe is whimsical and fun, especially in a kitten heel silhouette like this Jeffrey Campbell shoe. But if you’re not ready to slip into a heel yet, then get the look with this black, braided slide from Seychelles. Loeffler Randall’s version comes in a delicious vanilla color.
Teva-inspired sandals have always been one of my go-tos, and this high-fashion Arizona Love pair featuring bandana prints are tops. If you want something with a little more drama, how about some pearl embellishments? You know I love a Birkenstock, and this white and tan pair ticks all the boxes. These tie-dye slides are silly, but perfect for poolside lounging.
Carrie Bradshaw always knew the power of a strappy sandal. And sexy doesn’t have to mean sky-high, either. This tan By Far pair is an easy way to get the barely-there look, with a comfortable block heel. Add a pop of color with this bright blue, twisty pair from fashion favorite Rejina Pyo. I love the shape of the heel on this Jeffrey Campbell shoe, and the kitten heel on this Larroude shoe is amazing.
A flatform shoe is a great way to get some height without sacrificing any comfort. Sam Edelman’s espadrille with white leather uppers are as summery as it gets. I love these tan leather platforms from Jeffrey Campbell, with white detailing along the soles.
You need a new pair of summer sneaks for kicking around in. I gravitate towards fresh white pairs, like this old-school pair of white and navy Nike Blazers. Superga’s are an absolute classic, too. If you’re craving more color, how about these sherbet-colored Air Max’s?
