Nude

A pair of nude coloured sandals are a must-have for the summer… Why? Not only do they match almost every single outfit combination and aren’t too in-your-face, but they also give the illusion of longer legs.

Nude sandals won’t cut off your leg at the ankle, but rather, will slim down the entire area and blend in with your skin tone. To keep your foot from sliding forward, use a sticky cushion and apply it into the arch of the shoe.

Cut out

Want to add a little edginess into your accessories? Cut out heels are the perfect way to show a little extra skin without of course, going over the top. Stick with regular black for an everyday heel, or something dramatic like a deep red or nude is always another option. Wear with anything from a sexy evening dress, to a tube skirt for work. The possibilities are endless!

Textured

If your closet mainly consists of black, white, and grey then a little texture is exactly what your shoes might need. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you might find yourself looking at coloured shoes which aren’t your style – instead, look for interesting patterns and materials which will make your outfit pop.

Colour

A loud party sandal is the best way to inject a little colour into your outfit during the summer time. Choose a thicker heel so you feel more stable (for lunch, dinner, and evening drinks), plus they’re so much easier to walk in.

Wedge

And finally, who can resist a comfortable wedge? Nobody! You can really experiment with wedges in summer, so why not try a pair combined with the best bits of an espadrille. Cork heel, navy, red and white are the most traditional types of wedges, and fit perfectly into the summer theme this year.

Denim jeans

Trade your old pair of ballet flats for a fun pair of espadrilles instead. Not only do they look better, but they also support the foot since they are equipped with a thick, resistant sole. Skinny jeans and a warm cardigan are just one way to make this look work.
