STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keepin’ It Strappy

Sandals are a must during the warm, sunny summer season. They let your feet breathe and your toes wiggle in freedom. Nowadays, we have many different kinds of sandals to choose from: flip flops, gladiators, slip-on, etc. However, I’ve seen one certain kind that have risen to the top: strappy sandals.

I think one of the reasons why I love the look of strappy sandals is because you can pull off different kind of styles: edgy, classic, athletic and bohemian, depending on what you are wearing. I also love how you can lengthen your sandals by crisscrossing the straps up your legs if you’re wearing shorts or a skirt. Or if you’re wearing jeans, you can wrap the straps around your ankle. It’s so convenient!

As displayed in this Fashionista’s outfit, she wore a gray tank top and striped, white and blue boyfriend jeans. Lastly, she included her strappy white sandals to complete the look. This Fashionista’s outfit reminded me of how simple, basic elements can be brought back to life when a show-stopping, unique accessory is added on. In this case, the Fashionista’s strappy sandals were the element in the outfit that gave it an extra oomph. With the distressed jeans neutralizing the gray color of the tank top, the outfit was complete without her looking like she had to try so hard.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Strappy sandals are great key components to amplifying your style. As for me, I usually like to wear sneakers with my denim jeans. However, I thought I’d make a change, especially because of the warm weather. So I skipped over to the strappy sandals to give my toes some air and to give my outfit some variety.”
