This Sandal Trend Is A Stylish Alternative To Flip-Flops

Share

The easier the better is our mantra for summer footwear, though we’re not exactly jumping at the chance to wear flip-flops on every occasion (they were spotted at New York fashion week en masse, however). Toe-strap sandals are our pick for an effortless look in the heat—from slides to lace-up styles and low-to-the-ground heels.

A bit ’90s in feel, you can choose from versatile neutrals, pretty pastel shades and squared silhouettes (another nostalgic trend we’re loving) and team with just about everything in your wardrobe for a result that’s at once elevated and nonchalant. Paired with a breezy summer dress on vacation? Yep. Worn with loose-fitting denim and a puff sleeve top? You betcha. With a kaftan and swimwear at the beach? Obviously. You catch our drift.

If you’re looking to add a new sandal to your arsenal, ahead, shop our edit of 18 toe-strap styles for every budget.
