It’s finally summer, which means your wardrobe is about to take on a brand new look. Some of the most irresistible aspects of season are the shoes. Sandals, flats, strappy heels, wedges – any style is sure to deliver that irresistible charm that can complete any outfit. But that doesn’t mean every shoe in your closet should be worn this summer. Some styles are back, but others are gone, gone, gone.
If style is a big deal to you, then everything from your home decor to what’s on your feet should be perfect. If you’re interested in being at the height of fashion this summer, here are some shoes you’ll want to consider.
Whether you prefer flats or heels, a pointed tip is ideal. These sharp shoes pair best with skinny jeans or leggings for a casual look, or straight-leg trousers for something a little more professional. They also look great with a flowy skirt!
These open-toed, strappy shoes aren’t anything new, but there are a few updates this year. The straps on these sandals are beginning to climb higher up the legs, which is more representative of a true gladiator sandal. More straps, bling, and other statements attached to these trendy shoes are all the rage.
The jury is still out about whether or not you should wear white after labor day, but this summer, you should definitely make it a priority in your summer wardrobe. Though off-white and eggshell shoes are acceptable, this summer is more about stark white choices.
There’s plenty of room for comfort this summer alongside your comfortable jeggings and flowing skirts. Open-backed slippers with bright, floral designs are all the rage as things heat up.
Casual sandals, pumps, and slippers aren’t always the right choice for every occasion. When you need something with a little more coverage, choose a good oxford flat. Not all of these shoes are entirely flat. Some are on a platform or have a slight heel on the back, but all of them are both practical and stylish.
Everyone’s favorite wedges are back, but in brighter, bolder ways. Today’s wedges include brilliant colors and more patterns. On casual days, choose a two-toned wedge with a loud-patterned heel and a neutral top. For a night out, make a statement with a dazzling floral pattern that pairs perfectly with that little black dress.
The blocky heels of the nineties are back in a big way. Today’s business casual summer dress involves open, pointy, and round toed heels with a square heel. It makes a statement, and goes well with any business-appropriate attire.
Another everyday shoe that can handle a variety of activities is your casual sneaker. Anything made of canvas with laces falls into this category, and the more brightly patterned, the better.
In the Wild West of olden times, the ladies wore attractive booties that covered their feet and part of their ankles. Now, a modern version of these shoes is available for summer wear. These little booties might seem a little warm for summer, but when you need more coverage, they’re the perfect alternative. If you need something a little cooler, choose an open-toed version of the shoe.
This summer, step out in true style. Fill your summer wardrobe with the latest and greatest trends of the season.
