The 8 Standout Sandal Trends That Will See You Through Summer
The recent spike in temperatures has put sandals to the top of our shopping agenda, but before you decide on the one pair you're going to buy this summer, let us introduce you to the styles you are bound to see everywhere.
If you're looking for a practical pair, two-strap chunky Birkenstocks, rope sandals and elegant sliders are the most laid-back styles you can still feel chic in, while on the other end of the sandal spectrum there are more adventurous ideas for open-toe trailblazers: PVC sandals (yes, really), white strappy heels and logo-flashing mules are just waiting to be Instagrammed.
Scroll below to see and shop the summer's eight best sandal trends.
1. Rope Sandals
2. Leather toe ring
Style Notes: Like it or not, the toe-ring sandal is back. The coolest pairs are super minimal leather sandals with one strap across the foot and a strap around the toe. But be warned, these are sandals that draw even more attention to chipped toenail polish.
3. The practical two-strap sandal
4. PVC Sandals
Style Notes: This is a trend Carrie Bradshaw would be all over right now. Maryam Nassir Zadeh has brought back '00s plastic strappy sandals, but if you can't spend over £400 on one pair of shoes, Zara has a great alternative for £26.
5. Chunky Flatforms
6. Elegant Slides
7. Logo Slip-Ons
8. White strappy sandals
