When it comes to the best sandals for summer, we always look for timeless styles that we know will go with just about anything. Enter, the Hermès Oran sandals.

We have no doubt that you've seen this shoe popping up on your Instagram feed, as the sandals are loved by celebrities and fashion editors all over the world.

The minimal design makes them easy to slip on with just about anything, and they instantly elevate an outfit thanks to the chic silhouette.

Although they were first designed back in 1997, they have remained a staple in many people's wardrobes for years, and we predict that this will be the case for years to come.

In fact, we are already saving up to add them to our summer capsule wardrobe, and if you want to do the same, them keep on scrolling. 

The sandal comes in 28 different colourways, from the classic tan shade to more fun, bright colours such as mint green and baby pink. The shoe is crafted in Italy and has a natural leather sole, so you know that they will last the long run.

That being said, they are definitely more of an investment piece, so you may want to try out similar styles before taking the plunge. If so, then you've come to the right place, as we've searched high and low for the best high street alternatives.

Keep on scrolling to shop our edit, and don't forget to pack them for your next summer holiday. If you are off somewhere hot, why not check out our holiday packing list for some more inspiration? From Loewe basket bags to Celine sunnies, there's everything you need for your most stylish trip yet.
