"When it comes to summer, brown sandals are the most versatile pair I can invest in that goes with practically everything. Like many of the fashion set, I, too, am eyeing some version of a fisherman sandal. I like how these are open and don't restrict the top part of my toes and can easily slip on and off." - Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR

Knitwear Black
"My heart belongs to a chunky black sandal for summer, so I finally took the plunge and invested in the latest Chanel "dad sandal" in knit tweed with pearl accents. I wear them with everything from a mini dress to cropped trousers and a vintage T-shirt (both with socks and without) and they are 100% the best shoe investment I've ever made. Consider it a true treat-yourself moment." — Hannah Baxter, deputy beauty editor, TZR

(That said, I’ll definitely still wear them with very of-the-moment wide leg trousers.)” — Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR
