Sandal season is here. The one fashion item that everyone has their eye on in the lead-up to warm-weather days, these practical – and style-conscious – pairs have moved beyond the basics, with fresh colours, modern shapes and directional details lending them statement-making status. Promising to elevate every outfit, meet the five key sandal trends for summer…
1. The Colour-Pop Sandals
Sandals have gone high-octane. Take a break from your trusty black favourites and look to the key colours of SS19 for something that feels a little more now. From frilled designs in rustic red to flat leather styles in golden yellow, colour-pop pairs can be relied upon to lift the look of every summer ensemble, be it a sun dress or denim.
2. The Wrap-Around Sandals
Irrevocably chic, scarf-tie sandals are the latest take on the strappy, wrap-around designs that have been doing the fashion rounds for several seasons. Choose simple styles with fabric sashes in clean abstract prints or luxe leopard, wearing yours from breezy days on the beach to sun-drenched concrete jungles.
3. The Block-Heel Sandals
Slightly smarter than their flat-soled counterparts, block-heeled sandals add extra height without compromising on comfort. This season’s key pairs come with prints and wood-effect heels, with mustard tones and khaki greens making them feel altogether more modern.
4. The Toe-Post Sandals
Beautifully bohemian, toe-post sandals are a true warm-weather classic. Embrace the trend with traditional sun-catching embellishments that nod to the East or take a more contemporary stance with macramé detailing in soft white – a staple for summer days.
5. The Sliders
Having amassed a celebrity following, sliders have been reintroduced into our wardrobes after a fashion hiatus. These days, the trend covers simpler, more refined designs as well as sports-luxe pairs – think woven leather and raffia straps with eclectic embellishments.
