Style Guide: 10 Chic Summer Sandals

When summer hits, there is no pair of footwear more practical than a trusty pair of sandals. In fact, I consider them a summer style essential. They are comfortable, easy to wear, and these days they come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. And while a pair of basic flip flops might be practical for scurrying to and from a yoga class, they aren’t the most interesting way to spotlight your soles. So, today I’ve rounded up 10 chic styles of summer sandals that will have you stopping traffic…from head to toe. Check out a few of my favorite pairs below…

4. Espadrille Sandals, J. Crew, $118
5. Neutral Sandals, K Jacques St Tropez, $260

Some of the biggest trends I’m looking out for this season are metallics, pops of neon, and natural sandals. I love the way a metallic shoe spices up the rest of your outfit. Pops of neon are fun too, but I like to make sure that they only come in small doses so that the look isn’t too highlighter-bright. Natural sandals go with everything in your closet, plus they’re very flattering. If they are close to your skin tone they will basically disappear, making your legs look longer.

  • Sarah Heckle

    I like the #4 espadrilles! Another sandal trend I’m loving this summer is Swedish Hasbeens.

  • Amy Breckenridge

    #8 is definitely my favorite pair! :)

  • Ashley Rizzardo

    #4 and #8 are my favorites here!

  • Tiffani Stuart

    I love the J. Crew Espadrilles! So cute! And I have a question for you, Lauren… Do you know a good way to keep the natural part of Espadrilles from fraying too much? The shoe is only as wearable as the rope fibers look decent.

  • Ashley Floyd

    I’m loving #9, the metallic LC sandals. With my high arches, sandals that have a strap from the ankle to the toe don’t fit, so these are prefect!

  • Katelin Absher

    I love #1 and #8!! I actually like them all!!! Nothing better than sandals in the summer!!

  • Donna Hale

    Beyond words obsessed with the J.Crew espadrille sandals! It’s more of a need than a want at this point.


  • Ashley

    I think yours truly are my favorites!!

  • Martin M

    I always love to see women in block heel sandals. So girls if you want to impress a man, wear block heel sandals 😉

  • My Style Diary

    Great picks! Number 7 is my favourite, it’s looks like nothing I own already. :)

  • Kelley {Keep Sitting Pretty}

    Number 10 is my favorite! I shouldn’t be surprised, because I love Steven Madden shoes!
