Sandals…oh how we love thee! Shoes can take you places…figuratively and literally. Compiled here are our picks for summer sandals, all of which are a sick take on the standard Grecian sandal that no one can get enough of.
Because flat sandals in a neutral are oh-so-right now, these Chloe sandals ($575, net-a-porter.com) will cost you a pretty penny, but keep your feet looking right no matter what you’re wearing. What do we love about these? Well, you can wear them with everything from a thrift store dress to your Acne skinnies and not bat an eye when it comes to whether they “match.” They aren’t supposed to…and that’s sort of the allure.
Gold sandals take a backseat to more interesting metallics this summer. Look for pewter, muted silver and bronze to look dressed without trying to look dressy. These sandals from indie label Devotte ($335, satineboutique.com) incorporate both dark silver and antiqued gold studs, so they’re like jewelry for your feet. Really hardcore, hipster jewelry, of course.
Delicate enough to wear with a wedding dress, and tough enough to make the rounds at Coachella, this sandal ($68, urbanoutfitters.com) has it all. If dresses and skirts seldom make it into your wardrobe, use this sandal to give a girlie balance to your look without going overboard.
Animal print has to be done right in order for it to work, and this leopard (or is it tiger?) print definitely does. Consider it a neutral, and wear this sandal ($248, josephstores.com) with every color in your closet for an extra shot of crazy.
Gap brought on shoe designing whiz Pierre Hardy to create the first Stateside installment of footwear for their Design Edition collection. These flat sandals ($78, gap.com) are available in silver, dark whiskey and white, perfect for those of us who can’t get enough of summer’s loud floral prints.
