7 Stylish Ways To Wear Your Sandals This Season

When I think of summer, one of the items that immediately comes to mind are sandals. It’s by far one of the easiest items to incorporate into your summer wardrobe that will last you all season. Also a great thing about sandals, is how affordable they are – you have the low ends, high ends and everything else in between. Given that it’s a seasonal item, I wouldn’t consider this an investment piece because you can purchase this at the  start of the season at an affordable price and still wear it seasons to come. I personally have sandals over five years old that are still in good condition and style – and my tip for keeping them looking brand new is cleaning them immediately after each wear. With sandals it’s easy to just slip out of them and slip them back on without any thought. With a wipe, just gently clean the inside and around the edges where dirt would normally catch it. Ladies, don’t forget your pedicures this season because unkept feet during this season is never in style. So to give you a head start on how to wear your sandals this season see some outfit inspirations below.

The gladiator trend is still in ladies, so pair yours with low key pieces to make your feet stand out from the crowd.

I wouldn’t suggest wearing your sandals in a Corporate office, but this look is perfect for the creative office on a Friday.

Another great gladiator look, this time a bit more dressy. What makes this look work without looking like there’s too much going on, is that the colours are neutral. A pop of colour is only added with the bag.

This girly look is given the cool girl look by adding the denim jacket and sunglasses. This look is definitely for the ladies who knows her body who she loves to play with proportions, patterns, fabrics etc.

This is such a simple look, yet so effective in many ways. The striped dress with a little flared hem is perfect for a day time event. Pairing the dress with sandals says ‘i’m okay with my height and i’m comfortable.’ Topped off with a mini red messenger to compliment the look.

Casually Cool

Summer is here and my sandals are out! This season a huge trend are slip ons – dress them up or dress them down, they just make your outfit look super easy. I personally love these hot items because I can skip the heels and easily slip them on for an all day pool party. It does a great job in toning down an overly sexy bikini to create the right balance between sexy and cool.

Also when you think of a pool or patio event white is the colour that often comes to mind. If you’re a complete brand obsess chick, definitely check out the Birkenstocks, if not, Zara’s affordable version are great too. Top is from Suzy Shier, Skinnies are H&M, Sandals are from Ardene. The handbag is one of my best buys from Value Village. See outfit details below.

It’s Friday and I’m feeling blue! I’m a huge fan and frequent shopper at H&M – I mean who doesn’t love them. Super affordable, always on trend and you can definitely find yourself some classic pieces too. I really like a monochrome look and with this look I balanced it with bright accessories. I’m wearing a metallic t-shirt, statement necklace and neon pink clutch all from H&M. A powder blue dress shorts from Costa Blanca and navy blue pumps by Ivanka Trump from Town Shoes. What really great about this shorts is that I can wear it both high waisted and slung just below my hips – super versatile.
