With skyrocketing temps soon on the horizon, now seems as good a time as any to ramp up your spring/summer sandal game. Over the past few months, many of you schlepped your way to work in snow-drenched landscapes sporting hefty boots and/or functional loafers that always seem to leave stylistic excellence dangling by the wayside. With that said, we thought to compile a list of notable silhouettes that can help solidify your open-toed footwear rotation.
More so now than just an uber comfy footwear option aimed to complement the most casual of ensembles, sandals are now regarded as certifiable statement pieces, which not only are pivotal to a women’s style of dress, but hold enough weight to anchor an entire outfit around. Long gone are the days of the heavily-cushioned, flatbed sandal often seen paired alongside ‘80s-style daisy dukes.
Today, we occupy a fashion-forward landscape keen to embrace a plethora of tastes, to which footwear brands the world over have responded in kind to.
From sporty and sleek to chunky and full, labels have done well to provide key choices that can effectively work their way into any wardrobe.
