#ShoesFirst: The summer sandal edit

25 images

Sandal-wearing season is upon us. You better book in for a pedi sharpish, because we've handpicked the shoe styles you're going to want to slip on, immediately.

Summer sandals are looking better than ever, and with the heatwave looking set to contine, there is no better time to get pedi-ready and snap up some new season styles.

For SS16, we’re forced to choose between block heels or super-strappy summer sandals.

On the one hand, we’re tempted towards fashion’s favourite suede-style mules (a great option for workwear). But we’re equally in love with those ultra-glam, sky high platform heels.

Aquazurra present their hero sandals with delicate ankle strap detailing to tempt us towards busy shoes, while H&M give the minimal shoe trend some summer love with gorgeous white designs with purse-friendly price tags.

Espadrille-style heels are the texture of choice for off-duty sandals, and a great choice for pairing with A-line skirts and floaty summer dresses.

While colour, as ever, is a sure-fire way to liven up your current wares. And this season’s brights are so good, they can totally stand alone. With chunkier straps and thicker soles becoming the favoured sandal styles of the new season, eye catching colours are able to make an even bigger impact.

And we haven’t even mentioned the classic summer tan tones at Chloe, Topshop and Mango.
