Four Summer Shoe Trends We're Loving This Season

It's time to step up your summer shoe game. 
Summer is in full swing, which means it's the perfect time to add some new sandals, slides, and strappy heels to your rotation. We've been watching Arielle's trendsetting shoe picks all season long, and now we're snagging the style inspiration for ourselves. Below, take a look at our four must-wear shoe trends of the summer, along with options to shop so you can make the trend your own.

Sneakers for Easy Styling

Casual, comfortable, and easy to wear: welcome to the summer of sneakers. A classic white pair will work for any ensemble, from a cute summer dress to shorts and a t-shirt. You can't go wrong with a leather pair from Veja or an all-over white style from Superga. But if you're feeling bold, opt for a star and leopard-print pair from Golden Goose or a smiley high-top version from Joshua Sanders.

Elevate Your Sandals

Of course, there's no better time to wear your favorite sandals. If you're looking for a colorful, printed pair of sandals, Arizona Love will have you covered–Arielle pairs hers here with our SN Meghan sweat set. You can also opt for a minimalist style, like the much-loved sandals from The Row or René Caovilla's white flip sandals. For a splurge, Hermès will certainly not disappoint–you've seen them all over Instagram, and we're here to confirm that the Oran Sandal very much lives up to the hype.

Strappy Heels Are Always In Style

For a dressier look, lean into the summer standby: strappy heels. A few of Arielle's go-to styles are The Row's leather sandals and Bottega Veneta's stretch sandals–both have a minimalist white design that will really let your outfit shine. For a sleeker look, try the Porte & Paire leather sandals, and if you want a wrap-style sandal, may we recommend the Magda Butrym Sweden sandals?!

Make Your Heels Your Statement Piece 

Why can't your shoes make a lasting impression?! Amina Muaddi's Gilda satin sandals have crystal embellishments on the front for a glam look. Jimmy Choo's Bing mules also bring a dose of dazzle with a crystal-covered ankle strap. Brothers Vellies' strappy gold sandals are a metallic dream come true, with a super long ankle wrap that looks like it goes on forever. And while Gianvito Rossi's suede mules are a simpler style, they have an iridescent look for a totally unexpected eye-catching accent.
