Out of the dozens of sandal styles in new-in sections right now, there's one that always looks elegant and expensive, no matter how much you spend. Tan leather sliders have long been a luxury buy, thanks to Hermès's iconic Oran sandals and Saint Laurent's Nu Pieds (both beautiful classics resistant to passing trends, that look sophisticated year after year). However, these styles are a serious investment, as a pair of Orans will set you back £490.
There are a number of tan sandals on the high street that have created a huge demand and have become hero pieces year after year. Last year, Zara's £26 crossover flats went viral, and Dune's Loupes were so popular that they were restocked six times. If you work in a sandal-friendly office, these are a smart option that will truly work seven days a week during the summer months.
There are a number of other tan silhouettes that are just as chic as the leather sliders. Charles & Keith's buckle T-bar sandals are particularly popular in the Who What Wear offices, and there are a number of barely there strappy sandals in caramel colours from TKees, Rejina Pyo and more.
