TRENDING: Sandals That Make A Statement

From the Editor, Trending

Growing up in Chicago, the summers were really limited to three months of warm weather. But that didn’t stop me from embracing summer styles well into the fall. I would rock sandals from March-November. (I am not a total masochist—I let my poor feet have a break during the coldest winter months.)

I couldn’t be happier to find myself in the midst of summer—aka the peak of traditional sandal season. With everything from strappy to metallics to frumpy-chic being on trend, there are styles that are sure to excite just about anyone. Here is a roundup of some of our favorite sandal styles for the season (say that five times fast).

1. Animal print is always on trend. Let out your inner feline with a leopard print pair.

2. Every Fashionista should own a pair of strappy, tan gladiator sandals. Dressed up with a cotton dress or down with a pair of cut-offs, these sandals will be your go-to this season.

3. Geometric cut-outs make a simple pair of black sandals fresh and unique.

4. Take advantage of one of summer’s hottest trends by wearing a pair of bright, white heeled sandals.

5. Add a bit of sparkle to an everyday ensemble by rocking a pair of metallic banded sandals.

6. Fashionistos—don’t be afraid to get a little adventurous with your footwear. Rock a strappy sandal in black leather for a masculine take on the trend.

7. Perhaps my favorite sandal is the Birkenstock. Part frumpy, part fashion, part retro-hippie, the Birkenstock is my go-to sandal of choice this summer.
