Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” I completely agree with Marilyn, and I happen to believe that the right shoe does not mean a sky-high pair of heels. Ditch the heels this summer and go for something both comfortable and trendy with a casual sandal.
Cloudy weather did not stop this Fashionista from shining. The Fashionista matches her casual sandals with an orange tribal print top, multi-colored bracelet and black shorts. The top and bracelet add a pop of color to her outfit while her black distressed jean shorts soften the look. The Fashionista describes her green Chaco sandals as her go-to shoe for any outfit.
Get this Fashionista’s look and try a Chaco sandal in the color or pattern of your choice. Chacos are popular down South and are a great shoe for walking around campus and heading to class in. If you want to look for a different sandal, try Birkenstocks. Birkenstocks are a hot trend this summer, and can be worn with casual or dressier attire. This pair of Birkenstocks would look cute paired with skinny jeans and a loose tank top. Another sandal that has been coming in hot this summer is a spin on the original jelly shoe. The Juju jelly sandal from ASOS is both a trendy and retro sandal that will bring a pop of color to your look this summer.
How To: Want something comfortable on your feet but don’t want to put money into a trend you aren’t sure will last? Buy a pair of Nikes, like this pair from Nordstrom. Wear the shoe for your workout, or dress it up by pairing it with a black skirt and neon shirt. After all, you don’t need an extra inch on your heel to stand tall in fashion!
