Finally, the snow boots and rain boots are packed away. Summer is here, which means it’s all about the sandal. Make those pedicure appointments and get ready to bare those toes! This summer there are so many trends for sandals. Different colors, varied heel heights and diverse styles are all hot for summer.
One of the best places to shop for shoes is Lori’s Shoes. They carry every type of sandal imaginable, including a large selection of this summer’s hottest trend, the flatform sandal. These shoes are in every fashion magazine and all over the runways. What is it? Think of a platform shoe but without the high heel. Remember Birkenstocks? But with more style!
The stores at Northbrook Court are stocking up with a variety of sandals from mid-heel wedges to chunky heel sandals to bright flats to high heel wedges. The trends you are seeing there are metallic with structure, a mix of leather and metal, mules and barely there flats.
One of the hottest colors for summer sandals is nude or neutral. These hues go with everything in your wardrobe. They take on the color of your skin, which elongates your leg and makes you look longer, leaner and taller.
Other significant summer sandal trends include: embellishments, details, gladiator, metal heels, ankle straps and wrap-around ankle straps. And regarding heel heights, anything goes. You are seeing very flat sandals to the extremely high heels and everything in between. The best news is that the mid-heel height is in style. No more walking around in pain with those high heel sandals, unless you want to.
I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from “Shoes: A Postcard Book” (Running Press): “Shoes are the quintessential touch of style that make you feel seductive and exciting, funky and hip, or demure and dainty.”
