The Throwback Shoe Every Fashion Girl Will Be Wearing This Summer

Share

Another day, another ’90s trend to grace our closets. This time, it’s in the shoe department, and you’ll likely twinge with nostalgia at the very sight: square-toe strappy sandals. A reprieve from the chunkier styles in the spotlight (dad sneakers, anyone?), squared, open toes are the look for summer. The throwback silhouette feels somewhat iconic—you probably wore a variation of this style to a school dance way back when—and rendered entirely fresh for 2018. For fans of comfort, blocked and stacked heels are easy to walk in and more casual to pair with daytime dresses and easy separates. With evening attire, dazzling stilettos abound from metallic shades to patent leather and jewel adorned. With just a simple shift in shape, these heels are the versatile update your wardrobe needs for the sunny season—we’re sure they’ll quickly become your go-to from the office to the wedding circuit.

Here, 12 pairs to shop now, at every price point.
