Spring has arrived! Meaning most of the northeast is finally defrosting, and I can finally return back home now that the snow is gone!
I have to say it is impeccable timing for the warmer weather because sandal season is here! There truly is no other love than warm weather and summer sandals.
Five very distinct trends are blazing the sandal department this season, and I am here to break them down for you.
Sporty (aka flatbeds or Slides): We began seeing the rise of this trend when furry Birkenstocks were spotted on the runway. The following summer nearly everyone and their mom were rocking the old 90’s trend. This season, the flatbed sandal movement is still huge. Not only are we seeing Birkenstocks, but also crisscross flatbeds, and single strap slides closely resembling Addidas infamous sandal. These are great for a very casual look.
Laced Up: for the love of sandals, you’ve got to get a pair of laced up heels this spring. I automatically think of Schutz shoes when I think lace-ups. Other designers have caught on to this trend making it huge throughout the warm seasons. In my opinion, these are the perfect summer date accessory.
Jeweled: My favorite trend right now all due to the cute yet comfortable factor. I’ve been stepping out in jeweled sandals these past couple months while escaping the winter mess in New York. I pair them with a very casual outfit for an instant upgrade! I would recommend smaller crystals if you want the sandals for long term wear. If you are looking to have fun and live in the trend, go for the large gems!
Platforms: Big chunky platform sandals have made a return. This really is the 90’s revamped, but I kind of like this return! Maybe because I am 5’4 and love all the added height. Per styling, these are meant for casual daytime looks. Think brunch with the girls, or a day date. Add a midi skirt, or romper for the perfect look.
The Double Strap: Aka the shoe that is replacing the mule (well in my opinion at least). The design consists of a thicker strap paired with a thinner strap for the top covering of the foot. It plays on geometrics that we haven’t seen before. It is a very modern look that would work great with color blocking or monochromatic outfits.
