The season’s hottest sandals are here, and if they’re not in your closet yet, you better run out and get them before the summer is over!
Here are a few of the sexiest summer sandals that are in style and some tips on how to wear them. These are perfect additions to complete your summer wardrobe.
Sexiest Summer Sandals!
Gladiators have waned slightly in popularity over the years, but this season they’re back on top, swapping thick straps for thin lace up varieties. They’re the perfect alternative to your fall and winter thigh-highs. However, instead ofwearing them with pants or tights, you wear them bare legged with shorts, skirts, or dresses. Just make sure your hemline stops before the top of the shoestarts.
Mirror the styles posted on StyleCaster’s guide to wearing high gladiators to ensure you have the right idea. And when in doubt, you can never go wrong pairing gladiators with denim.
Even though chunky heels dominated fall and winter styles, thin heels are definitely the way to go for strappy sandals this summer. If you take a look at Lyst’s collection of women’s shoes, you can see a lot of top designers migrating away from thick heels, opting instead for thin or skinny varieties. You can still find a few thick heels from designers like Fendi and Valentino, but the majority are embracing a “less is more” concept for the summer.
Neutral colors like black and nudes are always a safe choice, but strappy sandals are meant to be fun. Try some summery citrus colors like yellow, orange, and pink for a bit of flair.
Suede Cage Sandals
If gladiator sandals are a little too intimidating, and you already have plenty of skinny strappy sandals, cage sandals might be the way to go. They’re slightlysmaller than gladiators, offer a bit more coverage, and usually the straps stop right above your ankle. Many designs also have heels, while gladiators are flat.They’re a great way to combine the two trends into a new style entirely.
To really nail the trend, make sure you choose a pair of suede cage sandals. You can use Chrissy Teigen’s look in the Daily Mail as an example. She paired her black and suede cage sandals with a pair of ripped skinny jeans and a black top, completing a look that exemplifies classic fashion.
Don’t settle for plain shoes this summer. Make a fashion statement with your footwear by amping up your wardrobe with a few of pairs of these trendy sandals. There’s nothing sexier than some really hot shoes!
