You better book in for a pedi sharpish
Summer sandals are looking better than ever, so there is no better time to get pedi-ready and snap up some new season styles.
Summer shoe trends
As ever, the summer fashion trends cater for everyone, from the maximalist to the minimalist. The latter will rejoice at the news that the trusted slide is still very much en vogue, with sleek tan and black leather styles very much taking over the high street (see Instagram’s current favourite, the Dune Loupe sandals, with Zara also offering a cute tan number).
The bohemian amongst you will also love the raffia slides seen at Topshop, L.K.Bennett, Mango and more.
For the more OTT amongst you, look no further than the sculptural heel shoe, which will give an arty twist to any summer dress. Look to Cult Gaia, Mango, Jacquemus and Neous for some fabulous options.
Flat summer sandals
Flat shoes have never been so in. From raffia slides and logo mules for off-duty to minimal white leather affairs and tropical fruit and animal prints, we’re spoiled for choice, whether we are looking to the high street or the designer offering.
Bottega Veneta’s woven leather slides will become your go-to work shoe, while Miu Miu’s pearl encrusted flats are the dreamy evening/party shoes if you’re just too fed up with sore feet.
Either way, a flat summer shoe goes beautifully with a linen ensemble, whether a button-down dress or a sharp suit.
Summer sandals with heels
The aforementioned sculptural heel shoe is the treat your feet (and your Instagram) deserve. Look to Cult Gaia for a quite frankly spectacular bamboo heel, and Jacquemus for geometrical wonders.
And if high heels aren’t your thing, don’t worry, the smaller heel is very much de rigueur right now. Kitten heels are all the rage, as are 90s block heels (preferably with a square sole), which are a lot more flattering than you’d think.
