Summer Sandal TrendsSandals are a summertime staple, and the breeziest shoes a woman can wear when the temps soar. From flat sandals glammed up for city streets, to towering wedge sandals and sexy stilettos that hit the style heights, we point out the perfect pairs.
Get some air conditioning this sultry season in shoes designed to show off more than a little skin, featuring finishes as bright as the sun or as pretty as a field of flowers. These strappy stunners rock, whether you love the comfort of a chic little flat sandal, the leg-lengthening powers of a platform sandal or chunky wedge, the glimmering beauty of evening heels, or the safety of sandals designed for serious mileage and summertime sporting.
Flat Sandals: You're Grounded
Whether it's a pair of brawny gladiator sandals or a more delicate duo bedecked with spaghetti-thin straps, this season flats are where it's at. Get down to earth with trend-right details, including bejeweled uppers, sizzling neon tints, edgy studs and metal trim, or a sweet, boho extra, the toe ring. Wide ankle straps and oversized buckles ensure your low-heeled kicks get their fair share of looks even amid towering heels, but you really don't need much for your style to sing: An elegant, minimalist T-strap flat stands out when it's crowned with a collection of faceted faux gems. Grecian-inspired flat sandals are another summer staple, and this year they're more precious than ever when enrobed in molten metallics.
