It’s summer time and every girl is preparing for her hot girl summer. And a part of that summer is SHOES! So what’s in this season? Keep reading to see the summer shoes you need this year!
STRAPPY SANDALS – the Go To Summer Shoes
Anything strappy is definitely a go this summer. These straps may come as chain detailing or or regular straps, but they’re fun and flirty and perfect for this summer. My – and everyone else’s! – favorite brand for this summer is Jacquemus and they have the perfect strappy summer sandals. What makes Jacquemus’s even more unique are the different heels on each sandals, what has become somewhat a cornerstone in the brands aesthetic.
These sandals are so summery and perfect for this summer’s strappy sandal trend while still being different and unique. Zimmermann has become famous for their young and fresh but elegant sandals, and this summer is no different! It’s hard to be disappointed by Zimmermann’s sandals, because they truly are some of the best strappy sandals on the market. I love how thin the straps on their sandals usually are, its like a thong flip flop but stylish lol. Their summery colors of yellow, red, and orange remind me of sunsets off the coast of some expensive, Mediterranean island. They also have more neutral shades, if you want something more versatile and toned down. I love their beige and black combo – very chic but cute. The only downside is, that though the thin straps are super sexy and fun, it makes walking around a lot harder.
This shoe trend is super popular this season, with almost every brand having a variation of these. Check out Zara for some killer shoe inspo!
The “Ugly” Sneaker
I used to hate the ugly sneaker/dad sneaker trend, until I started LOVING it. These chunky, larger than life sneakers seem to be able to elevate any outfit, making even the most casual outfits look cooler and more put together. In previous seasons, Balenciaga dominated in them but now, I LOVE Chanel’s take. They’re colorful and stylish and casual enough to be worn with practically anything but chic enough to be worn with a slip dress for a more effortless, cool-girl vibe. These are some of my favorite “ugly” sneakers:
These Chanel chunky sneakers are super pricey, so for more affordable options, ASOS has the most diverse yet affordable selection. Other brands like Zara and Bershka also have a large selection of chunky sneakers to choose from.
This summer thong sandals have BLOWN up, and this trend is so popular that its probably all you’re going to be seeing on your instagram timeline this summer. Here are some of my favorite affordable thong sandals:
