I hope you’re enjoying some warm weather by now, and are able to start bringing out your favorite summer sandals. Sandals are great because most take up very little space. They make it easy to throw in a purse, tote, or carry-on to switch into when heels become uncomfortable, sneakers are too warm, or you want to dress down an otherwise more formal look. Flat sandals look great with maxis, midis or mini dresses, shorts or cropped pants, and are a summer essential for keeping you cool and making an outfit casual and effortless for this season. Especially when traveling, a high quality sandal is what you are going to want. I am listing my top favorite picks down below!

#1 Espradille Sandal 

First off, these are the summer’s hottest shoe trend. Whether it be a wedge such as the Adalyn Espadrille or a sandal, this style is going to be comfortable and easy to walk in. In the picture shown above is the Splendid Jody Ankle Tie Espadrille Sandal. I love the suede straps and it comes in four different plush colors. Plus, they are under $100! Another favorite of mine, is the Soludos Espadrille Sandal. They remind me of vacation with their nautical feel. This style will go with about any outfit from shorts to white dresses. For under $60, this sandal will be practical and stylish.

#2 The Studded Sandal

I am obsessed with the Valentino Studded Sandals. They are definitely on the pricer side of the spectrum, with a price point at $975. However, there are multiple similar pairs that I will share! The Dolce Vita Prim Wedge Sandal is another favorite with a price tag of only $118. I love the multiple straps both of these have and the stud adds a fun twist. Most have either gold or silver hardware. Steve Madden Toe Loop Sandal is a great silver option. I love the toe loop of this sandal and the criss cross detail.

#3  The Double Strap Sandal 

The double strap sandal is another comfortable option this summer. The extra strap gives more support and are very trendy. The Lauren Sandal by Jack Rogers is one of my favorites. It’s classic scallops give it a darling touch. It comes in four different colors: gold, cork, white, and brown. This sandal is the perfect travel sandal. Another favorite is the Leather Braided Slide from Soludos. I just adore the braded strap above the toes and the second white strap is thick which makes it comfortable.

#4  The Slide 

The slide trend is back! Slip-on sandals or slides are a cute and easy piece to have in your wardrobe. The Jcrew Colorful Bauble Slide makes a statement. These look so cute with dresses and jeans alike. The Dolce Vita Kevin Slide is the perfect slide for a vacation. The palm print embellishment is chic and tropical.
