When it comes to choosing the best sandals for summer, the Chanel dad sandals are hard to beat. The chunky, quilted design divided people at first, however, soon the iconic shoe was all over our Instagram feeds.

Yes, they look a little like something that our dad would wear and yes, they come with Velcro straps, but there is no denying that they make a serious fashion statement. Plus, they look super comfortable.

They can pretty much be styled with everything, and we love the idea of pairing them with pretty summer dresses to give the look a tougher edge.

While we wait for the weather to warm up, why not try them out with a pair of jeans and an oversized blazer for the perfect off-duty look?

It's no surprise that these sandals are super popular at the moment, which means that they can be a little tricky to get hold of. We always recommend checking out websites such as Vestiaire and Farfetch, where you can find lots of pre-owned Chanel items.

If you are struggling to get your hands on pair, not to fear, as there are lots of amazing high street alternatives to shop.

We've rounded up some of our favourite styles below, from the likes of H&M, Boden and more, so make sure to check them out, as they are bound to sell out in no time. We will definitely be getting our hands on a pair.
