Temperatures are rising and summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time for those little piggies of yours to make their debut! This season shoes reign supreme and with endless styles to choose from, there’s no end to the fire your looks can bring. Here are the five shoes your closet needs to beat the heat and stay hot, hot, hot all summer long.
The espadrille has quickly become a summer staple. The classic rope detail that lines the heel gives it an elevated casual edge, making it a perfect go-to for your summer outfits. Grab a classic pair like these open-toe slide-ons from TOMS or this platform pair from Sam Edelman for everyday wear with your jeans and shorts. If you’re looking for a pair with that extra something-something, go for these lace-up embroidered espadrilles from Nanette Lepore or these from Steven Natural Comfort with woven detail to wear with your summer dresses.
The mule has definitely made its comeback this year after we started to see the trend resurface late last fall. Now, mules are everywhere and lucky for us the style has lead to some creative takes on the backless shoe trend; meaning, there’s really no wrong way to rock them! A traditional mule like this pair from Steven by Steve Madden is a perfect option for styling with a pair of jeans. My personal favorite is the backless loafer, like this pair from Steven by Steve Madden, giving you a trendy twist on office style that can carry you well beyond happy hour. For a truly summer look, go with a mule that has perforated details like this pair from Lucky Brand. Wear them shorts, skirts, dresses, or jeans – they go with everything!
No summer shoe collection can be complete without your classic sandals, but this year we’re taking our flip flop game to new heights. For weekends at the beach, give traditional styles like these thong sandals from Sperry and Minnetonka a try. Whether you’re planning a vacation some place tropical or just spending more time outside, wear sandals with added detail like fringe or lace to really help your summer looks stand out. These tassel thong sandals from Vince Camuto and these macrame flats from Lucky Brand are perfect for the occasion.
Give your feet a break this summer and push those stilettos to the back of your closet. This season the block heel is your new best friend when it comes to those nights out or anytime you just need to add some height to your OOTD. Whether you want a little or a lot, there’s no limit to the options and styles you can rock with these summer heels. A classic pair in a seasonal color, like these coral beauties from Naturalizer are a great go-to option for this trend. If you want to add a little flair, try out these studded leather sandals from Jessica Simpson for summer nights out. I also love every color these Lucky Brand block heels come in that are perfect for just about any of your favorite summertime activities.
No matter what trend you take on this summer, make sure you keep comfort in mind. Long summer days in the sun can take a toll on your feet and these options will make sure you’re staying stylish and comfortable. These lace-up espadrilles from Wendy Williams and Sam Edelman are cute classics for any summer excursion. For when you’re spending your nights dancing away, keep these lace-up block heels from Sam Edelman or these leather sandals from Lucky Brand in mind. They’re the perfect options for days when you want to dress up your summer look and last well into the night. Lastly, slide on these beaded fringe thong sandals from Sam Edelman for your beach days or these t-strap sandals from Naturalizer for your next theme park visit.
