In fashion magazines we often think that high heels are the ultimate feminine shoe, adding height and shape to your legs. But I like to think sandals, THE shoes of Spring and Summer, aren’t getting enough attention!
In fashion magazines we often think that high heels are the ultimate feminine shoe, adding height and shape to your legs. But I like to think sandals, THE shoes of Spring and Summer, aren’t getting enough attention! Sandals are dainty, they show off your feet and your pedicure, and are also comfortable enough to walk in all day. Sandals can be worn with literally everything, from jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts, or this season, playsuits! Sandals can be worn at the office or to the beach…it all depends on your style and accessories!
And there is a lot happening with style when it comes to sandals this season. While traditional flip-flops and Birkenstocks will always be popular, sandals are not excluded from the fashion runways this year! The best designer brands to browse online for the latest trends in sandals include Ash, Birkenstock, Havaianas, and Les Tropeziennes.
5 Spring Sandal Trends To Get Now!
Low wedges: An old standby over the past few years, the sturdy wedge heel sandal isn’t going anywhere, but gets a fresh look with trendy ankle straps and other details. Get the height you want while keeping your feet on solid ground! And now you can get low wedges which are even more comfortable and practical, without losing any of the glamour!
Ankle straps: Most designers this season have modified their best sandal models with an ankle strap. This is not only practical, but provides a more sophisticated allure to a pair of simple sandals. Show off your ankles with this type of sandal, worn with just about anything in your wardrobe!
Fringe: One of the trendiest looks this year, fringe is being seen on skirts, tops, bags and yes even sandals! Anything with fringe is great if you are going for a Western or Navajo-inspired outfit. Get a cute and sophisticated boho look with a pair of leather fringe flat sandals!
Wide foot straps: The battle between thin straps and wide straps has given way to the latter this season for a super stylish look that hints at retro fashion. These go great with colourblock outfits or culottes, or even a business suit or maxi skirt! And if you are thinking that a traditional pair of Birkenstocks isn’t feminine, think again! The brand has redesigned their slip on shoes to be ultra-feminine and available in great colours like silver and white!
Sandal boots: The latest trend for true fashion followers, the sandal boot is a hybrid of sandals and boots that can only be attributed to the boho-festival style. With the protection of a partial upper like an ankle boot paired with open toes and sides for breathability, this style is perfect for those who like something unique and daring while making a statement.
So don’t be shy—stock up on sandals this season and look your ultimate feminine best!
