As the summer has come to an end, the coming season trends are becoming more and more apparent. Summer this year in Michigan has been almost unbearable with the amount of heat we have received—and with that heat, it’s been important to wear and do whatever it takes to stay cool. While this week especially was broiling, I noticed a trend around campus—statement sandals.
This Fashionista pictured was able to take “staying cool” to a whole new level: Between her flowy dress and and a pair of statement sandals, she was dressed for success. I loved the colors in her outfit because they just screamed summer—bright blue and neon coral made her outfit extremely eye-catching. Trending lately have been monotone ensembles, specifically in black, white and nude, so it’s refreshing to see people break out of that fad and bring some color back to the fashion world. Not only was the color of her sandals in and stylish, but she also worked a ’90s platform look. Her shoes worked so well because they added a bit of height while being cool and comfortable to walk in—exactly what to stride for in a “hot” summer look .
How To: Go out and get yourself an awesome pair of shoes. Whether they’re sandals, flats or heels it doesn’t matter, just make sure they’re extremely vibrant! Whatever statement shoe you get, embrace it—rock the shoe with any summer dress or outfit. If your outfit is simple, this style strategy will draw attention to the shoes, making them the statement piece. Statement shoes: perfect to spice up any outfit on any occasion!
