This time of year, shoe closets transform into espadrille graveyards. While the trashed wedges and fouled-up flip-flops might evoke memories of weddings and picnics past, they leave a lot to be desired appearance wise. The solution? Freshen your footwear selection with these four must-have summer sandals.
A walk-able heeled sandal is the most versatile shoe for warm weather. Elizabeth and James sandals with a think heel and straps are stable and stylish. Wear with a Free People sundress and Club Monaco fedorato a flea market or art festival.
A sexy pair of strappy sandals is a must to get through the never-ending stream of summer nuptials. Jean-Michel Cazabat sandals pair well with a bright Alice + Olivia dress or a pastel Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit. Iridescent B Brian Atwood sandals also work for multiple wedding weekends, playing up pinks, greens, and neutrals.
Comfortable and easy to slip on, the flat sandal is a summer necessity. Strappy and metallic, Sam Edelman sandals have a padded footbed and pair well with cutoff shorts, while colorblocked Rebecca Minkoff sandals offer supportive straps and an unexpected pop of color to a feminine maxi dress.
Able to traverse dirt, sand, and grass, the wedge sandal earns it place as an outdoor event go-to. Pair red, white, and blue Tory Burch wedges with a feminine white dress for a hint of nautical flare. For a sure-fire option, wear Rosegold espadrille wedges with a Marc by Marc Jacobs romper, then kick back, relax, and enjoy summer in style.
