The sun has been teasing us a little bit recently. One or two sunny-ish days have had us dreaming of evenings spent al-fresco, sipping a sangria/mojito/anything that’ll make you feel like you’re on holiday. Well, fingers crossed that time is not too far off. Sandal season is approaching – so get that pedicure, resign your tights to the winter wardrobe and let your toes see some sun. Whether you’re jetting off to sunnier climes, hitting up a festival abroad, chilling by the pool, exploring a city, or just can’t bear wearing boots anymore, we’ve got you covered with The Sandal Edit.
Post-work drinks on a sunny terrace or dressed up dinners on a city holiday are what the Red Or Dead Kawaii Sandal is made for. Their flatform sole makes them comfy enough after a long day of work or sight-seeing, but the on-trend khaki and black gem embellishment makes them a little bit fancy.
Get the inflatable swans, donuts and unicorns at the ready – this summer, it’s still all about the pool slide. If you’re planning on spending all of your holiday pool-side, these are the sandals you need. Pick your favourite sports brand, and you’re good to go. And when your holiday’s over, you can keep the dream alive by teaming your slides up with a fun pair of ankle socks.
We’re not talking the muddy fields of glasto – but a sunshine-filled festival – think Coachella, Benicassim etc. Festivals are as much about the fashion as they are about the music – and it doesn’t get much more ‘festival fashion’ than boho inspired pieces. The schuh St. Tropez sandal have pom-pom ankle ties that’ll go perfectly with your floral crown and floaty sleeves.
Beach Club Babes
Think Marbella, Ibiza, loungers in pools and white champagne glasses. These schuh Boston heels are made for the beach club babe. You’re not there to splash around and do canon-balls into the pool, you’re there to top up your tan while celeb spotting and just generally looking AMAZING. Yes, people might argue that a pair of slides or flip-flops would be more practical, but ignore the haters and embrace the glam.
If your summer plans revolve around hating everyone who is going away to get some sun, then you can at least make things better with some new shoes. Fluffy sandals are a big trend, thanks to RiRi. Slip these on, feel fantastic, and be a tourist in your own town. Even better, the fluff will keep your feet a little bit warmer when the sun that was forecast for the afternoon inevitably doesn’t makes an appearance.
You’ve got the run-down on all the sandals you could possibly need, now all we need is some sun! If you’re still not inspired, take a look at all of our sandals here.
