A Guide to: Summer Shoes

Now that summer is in full swing it’s time to dive into all the new summer shoe trends. This year it’s defiantly time to break away from your basic flip flops and try something new. This new “A Guide to” series will follow new and upcoming trends in the fashion world. If you’re anything like me, completely and totally obsessed with shoes, you’ll defiantly want to keep reading!

Mules:

 

Over the past few months, I have seen mules everywhere! They are such a staple piece in any girls wardrobe. With a basic heel and a peep toe, this shoe is perfect for any occasion. Some of my favorites are the Steve Madden Dalis Slide Sandals.  These shoes come in three different colors, including a basic black and nude. For a more simple everyday pair, go for a flat version. Flats are the best way to be comfortable, while still being trendy. The New Look Suede Flat Mules from ASOS.com are simple and inexpensive. So we all have our dream pair of shoes that are just a bit out of our reach. Mine are the rag & bone Elliot Mules. Even though these shoes are, well very out of my price range, I still dare to dream about them.

Sneakers:

 

Yes, typically we stray away from close toed shoes for the summer, but I can never resist a good pair of white sneakers. My OG pair of sneakers, that look great with pretty much every outfit are the Nike Air Force 1’sThese sneakers will last you a life time, I’m convinced they will never go out of style. My next summer sneaker staple are a pair of shoes I never thought I’d fall in love with. A combination of espadrilles and sneakers, a match made in heaven. This trend is huge this summer and combines two of the most classic summer shoes. The Marc Fisher Mandi Espadrille Lace Up Sneakers are the perfect summer shoe. Bonus: these shoes are on sale at Bloomingdales for (40% off!). Heads will defiantly turn when you’re wearing these sneakers. Next, lets take it back to a time where all we wanted wear velcro shoes. I must say, when I wear these shoes I feel like a kid again. Now I know velcro shoes aren’t everyones style, but how can you resist a simple shoe like the Vans White Twill sneaker. These shoes are extremely comfortable and perfect for any occasion. And trust me, no laces is a huge plus.

Ankle Straps:

 

Ankle strap sandals are the best shoes for something a bit more fancy on a summer night. These shoes are simple and easy to wear on any occasion. For a night out look to try the Steve Madden Carrson Sandal. With a variety of different colors you’ll be able to find a pair that best fit your night. For a more day time appropriate look, go for a lower block heel. The Lulu’s Harper Black Suede Ankle Strap Heels come in all your go to neutral colors. Both of these ankle strap sandals will bring your summer look to a more classy and elegant level.

Platforms:

 

This style of shoe might not seem as cool to everyone as they are to me. I am totally obsessed with platform sandals. They are so conformable, while also giving you some height. These shoes are perfect for any casual day and are perfect for walking around. Nasty Gal’s Love on Top Platform Sandals are pretty much the best of both worlds, height, and comfort. To stand out even more try the MIA Platform Sandal. These metallic sandals will honestly just be super fun to wear with any outfit!
