Best sandals for the summer
We all know its open-toe season, and its time to break out the sandals. This year, its all about the details! Fashion icons and bloggers both are loving tassels, bright colors, and ties this summer– but it can be hard to find your cutest pair without breaking the bank.
I’ve seen so many people wearing the cutest espadrilles or slides, but I always turn away when I see the brand is Chloe or Tory Burch, because that’s just not something most of us can drop money on without affecting our budgets!
Below I’ve listed some of my favorite sandals for the season— both flats and wedges. I included a range of styles and price points, so hopefully everyone can find something they like and can buy without worrying about the price! Links are included in each description below.
1.Old Navy sandals
These sandals are so precious and provide the perfect pop of color to any everyday, causal summer outfit. The tie detail also makes these sandals ok for a more dressy look– just pair them with a sun dress and some delicate jewelry. Old Navy also makes the comfiest shoes, so you may want to pick these up in several colors!
2. Free People Revolver Clogs
I bought these clogs years and years ago, and they just look better with age! (Mine are older and don’t have the tie) The leather is so soft, and the wear on it makes the shoes look lived in, which I adore. The wooden bottom is also surprisingly comfortable– I’ve worn these from work to dinner, and didn’t need to change. While they’re some of the more pricey shoes on my list, I definitely recommend them and I know you’ll get your money’s worth!
3.Steve Madden Jaylen WEDGE sandals
You’ve seen these all over your favorite bloggers’ Instagrams, and I am here to tell you that they’re just as great as you think. They’re a less expensive alternative to the ones by Chloe, which run about $660. The Steve Madden wedges come in several colors, but this taupe color is so versatile that I couldn’t resist. I will say I don’t think these shoes are as comfy as the Free People ones, but that may be because I haven’t broken them in yet and I have pretty wide feet.
4. Forever 21 Tassel Slides
I showed these on Instagram earlier this summer and got so many comments asking where they were from! Everyone was shocked to hear how inexpensive they are, and that they’re from Forever 21. They’re super easy to throw on, and they make any outfit look more put together and festive. Limited sizes are available in these now, so run to your nearest store or to their site!
P.S. If they’re sold out of your size, here are basically the same shoes in a different color from Amazon.
5. Sam Edelman oliver Flip Flops
People never believe me when I say the best basic flip flops I’ve ever worn are by Sam Edelman, but it’s true. He makes so many styles and colors of flip flops that you’re sure to find what you’re looking for, but get the comfort and durability of his brand. If you are looking for a more affordable option, T.J. Maxx often gets a boatload of these!
6. Sam Edelman Carrin Platform Espadrille
These are some of my favorite options for weekend errands. These slip ons are suede, but the espadrille bottom keeps them summery and the slight platform also gives you a little height. Best of all worlds! Again, these are insanely comfortable (are you seeing a theme?) and will go with just about everything.
