The Summer Staples
In pale sand-coloured leather with metallic accents, these two-tone numbers from Ancient Greek Sandals will become your best friends this summer – and they’re easily dressed up or down in an instant. On lazy weekends pottering about, pair chino-style shorts (these are from H&M) with Levi’s blue and white tie dye vest for a casual, no-fuss look. Accessorise with an oversized canvas tote and a stylish straw fedora, and you’re good to go.
The Modern Classics
A contemporary twist on a classic shape, these strappy sandals from Whistles are smart enough to wear to work or to a dinner with friends – and it’s a fairly ‘sensible’ chunky heel too. Choose bold colours to brighten up your working wardrobe and wear with this pleated cobalt skirt from Reiss, teamed with a simple washed silk shirt from Equipment. Finish with a sleek clutch and delicate jewellery – we love this ring and bracelet from Agnes de Verneuil.
All White Now
Add a flash of colour to an all-white ensemble with Topshop’s chic emerald green accented sandals. Wear with Mango’s crystal embellished dress and add tonal accessories to keep things fresh – here a Christopher Kane clutch, H&M straw hat and Mango bangle.
The Statement Shoes
Zara’s printed shoes make enough of a style statement, so team with relaxed boyfriend fit jeans and a simple white tee. Add contrasting jewellery to dress things up a little – we like John and Pearl’s silver Lily necklace and these super cool crucifix earrings from ASOS. Finish the look with your favourite pair of sunglasses; if money were no object, we’d be picking up these Prada acetate shades.
Bright orange soles and python patterned straps; these striking sandals from Aperlai bring an exotic flavour to summer days, and with just a hint of a heel, these are shoes for dancing in! Wear with your favourite LBD (add a belt to change things up) and throw on a smart jacket for cooler evenings. Go OTT with accessories – Didi Jewellery’s turquoise ring and earrings look wonderful with a golden glow – and who can resist Hipanema’s Biarritz bracelet?
