These Classic Summer Shoe Trends Will Keep You In Order


B right outfits, hearty waves of laughter, backyard parties…these are a few of our favorite things about summer. Once summer hits with its whimsical escape, it always seems like we’ve had it on speed dial all along. The cheese to the entire summer fashion pizza is summer shoe trends: they give us happy feet as we put our best foot forward and sometimes, with absolutely nowhere to go.

At the moment, strappy sandals, flatforms, and block heels shine in the spotlight and have damned the dampness that came to be associated with the lockdown. Shoes will forever be a girl’s best friend and nothing in fashion can hold weight without them. I mean, imagine putting together a bomb outfit and then going barefoot. Exactly, purpose defeated.

With things finally opening up, we all now have more places to go than ever before. From bridal showers to brunch dates to concerts, this summer is definitely packed with events that 2020 unpredictably postponed. No matter where you’re headed, a pair of great shoes will never let you down.

We’ve curated 9 summer shoe trends your wardrobe will love…

#1. Strappy heels

Having brunch with the girls? Going for a bridal shower? Got any semi-formal event to attend? Strappy heels are perfect for any summer event where you don’t need to be on your feet for more than an hour.

#2. Flatforms / Platform Sandals

From picnics to play dates for the kids, casual strolls to simply running errands, you can’t go wrong with Flatforms this season. Just remember, the longer you have to be on your feet, the lower your sole/heels should be.

#3. Flat Sandals

Flat sandals are perfect for every daily activity from grocery shopping to mall trips to BBQs. Get them in every color and you’ll never lack a well-styled outfit. Whatever you do, be sure to have a black one for everyday wear, a white one for that resort look and a bright colored one for when you need a pop of color.
