5 Best Summer Sandals For Women
Sandals are the official footwear of summer. They allow your tootsies to breathe after months of being cramped in boots and shoes. They give you a chance to show off your pedicure. Most of all, they allow you to slip into fuss free footwear with little to no laces or buckles. So, if you’re excited for sandal season and are looking for some inspiration for this year’s lineup, read on.
Here are the 5 best sandal styles for women.
1. The Fancy Flip Flop
You’ve doubtlessly got your pair (or 10) of old school rubber flip flops, and we’re not about to tell you to forsake them entirely. We are going to suggest, however, that you consider also wearing an alternative: namely, the fancy flip flop. These thong sandals feature small but mighty embellishments, like shiny trim or blinged out details or different sort of material like leather or denim.
2. The Wide Heel Sandal
Wide heels are a thing of beauty for those of us who want a lift, but don’t want to be teetering around town. By offering a better support base, the best wide heel sandals allow you to walk comfortably, whether you’re strolling through your fave boutique, or attending a beach wedding.
3. The Formal Flat
While you don’t need to wear these sandals to a formal event, this pick allows you tons of style versatility. They’re flat, so you know you can wear them for hours comfortably, but they also have a more formal finish, which means you can wear them to a wedding, to the office, a hot date or to any more fancy affair. But, because they are also subtle and chic, you can also pair them with jeans, leggings, a skirt or shorts. There’s just about nothing these flats can’t do for you this summer.
4. The Ankle Tie
High heel or no heel — it’s up to you — but every gal needs a pair of ankle tie sandals to complete her summer foot fashion. This style of sandal is super cute and endlessly sexy, drawing the eye to your shapely and strong ankles. Who doesn’t want to accentuate the smallest part of their legs?
5. Strappy High Heel Sandal
What list would be complete without mention of the strappy sandal. These beauties are perfect for more formal affairs, but can also make the transition to casual wear. Pair them with skinny jeans and instantly give your rear a lift. Wear them with a skirt or shorts and elongate your legs. If you’re not a fan of high, narrow heels, that’s fine: opt for a more demure kitten heel and enjoy all the playful perks of a narrow heel, without the stratospheric heights.
