Sandals have a special place in a woman’s heart as they are so comfortable and, unlike men’s sandals, they can be extremely elegant too. As summer is hardly a month or so away, it is time to take a look at the hottest trends of the year and see which are the pairs you should be looking to pick up.
The Nude Sandal
There are various versions of this, but to describe the general idea behind the nude sandal, we would have to compare it with a bikini or a strappy back dress. It’s sensual, comfortable and as long as there are some high heels there, you can very easily wear the nude sandals with a bold evening dress to almost any occasion.
The Cross Strap Sandal
A perfect example of a trendy cross strap sandal would be the Mimo sandals by Head Over Heels. They have three straps on the front, but the two crossing straps are up top, near the ankles. The Mimo looks absolutely stunning in gold and it’s a must buy pair this year. They also have a wide sandal collection that’s in line with the hottest trends this year, so do check out the Head Over Heels website for more options in the sandal department.
Mid-Heels and Straps
This is a classic sandal and you can’t really go wrong with this one. The mid-heels with straps are not as much a new trend, as it is an ongoing one, since they never went out of style to begin with!
Be sure to get a pair in white and you will have a pair of sandals that you can wear with virtually anything. Black works too, but the white just has a more universal appeal and adaptability.
Block Heels and Multi Straps
The block heel and the straps work wonderfully, particularly in black. We would go as far as even saying that the combination works for semi-formal occasions as well, as long as there is no covered shoe requirement at the event of course. In fact, they are the perfect choice of sandals for those of us that suffer from ankle pain, since pencil heels aggravate it.
The Classic Espadrille
The classic espadrille has made a comeback this year, but with subtle variations that set it apart. The glitter on the Nora by Head Over Heels is a good example of the classic espadrille with a new twist.
As one would imagine with espadrilles, there are no heels here at all, so if you are looking for a comfortable pair to wear to that pool party, or simply something to put on for your evening stroll, these classic sandals are going to be perfect this summer.
The Snake Prints
Actual snakeskin is being abandoned by manufacturers all over the world to separate fashion from cruelty, but snake prints are going to be there for a long time to come, because they imbibe the eternally seductive appeal of snakeskin, without the cruelty of course. Don’t go for the bold yellow prints though, because they might remind people more about the slithery reptiles than is preferable!
As you may have noticed already, the classics are a hit this year, and it’s a trend that we are getting
behind. The sandals are comfortable, classy and quite universally adaptable when it comes to matching them with any attire. While the closed-toe high-heels will still be the choice for full on formal occasions, some of the sandals here will serve you well even in semi-formal occasions, as long as you pair them up with a nice, matching evening gown.
