I love to look at things according to trend. Every season, I think it’s one of my most favorite things, to check out the top fashion magazines, the top fashion blogs, and peruse street wear, to see what types of items will be next on my wish list. This is one of my favorite things about shoes, too. There are endless amounts of styles, possibilities, flairs – from buckles to studs, kitten heels to spikes, pointed toe to round – the trends come and go, just like the seasons do.
This season, you can count on a few eye-catching trends to hit your shoe must-haves list. I know we all have our flip-flops, combat boots, and our cute flats from every single season past, and those have their place. But if you’re like me, you want to freshen up your shoe closet now that the summer sun, short shorts and party dresses are almost here. So I give you: 4 laws of summer sandals.
First up: Floral Sandals. You’re likely seeing it everywhere, but floral patterns are a MUST this spring and summer. From small print to oversized, roses to tulips, let the cool botanicals adorn your feet.
Law #2: Fun flips are the way to go. Toss aside the cheap, rubber ones that resemble post-pedi spa sandals, and get your toes into some cute leather or rope flip-flops, like these nautical flip-flops from rue21.com…
Next up, always keep in mind that a little sparkle can go a loooong way. I’ve even thought of doing a little DIY on some plain sandals, to make them look like this (at the risk of losing a finger to the glue gun). Better just get these metallic embellished sandals, at the bargain under $20 price. Ha!
The fourth, and final, law of the summer sandal this season is to go boho! Yes, embrace that Birkenstocks-wearing hippie chic girl inside of you. It’s in there! And if you can’t afford the $100 price tag on the Birks, maybe snag some of these cross strap sandals (in every color)!
So before the summer sun gets beating down and you have no shoes to wear to that BBQ, remember this list of summer sandal shopping. It’s law.
