How A Real NYC Fashion Girl Styles Her Go-To Summer Sandal, 3 Ways

Share

Cheralee Lyle is always on the go, whipping up content for her blog Ascot Road, filming YouTube tutorials, and curating covetable looks on her Instagram. The South African editor and content creator resides in New York City, meaning she needs comfortable shoes that don’t sacrifice style to go uptown, downtown, and everywhere in between.

Thankfully, SOREL’s Joanie wedge has a luxe footbed that lets Lyle navigate city streets without ever doing a shoe swap. It makes sense, too, seeing as the fashion crowd has relied on the brand’s utility-chic winter boots for decades. “Spring is my favorite season to dress for,” Lyle tells us. “I like my looks to be feminine, fun and comfortable enough to run around New York City.”

Here, we’re showing you how Lyle styles her favorite pair of SOREL wedges in the form of three spring-ready looks.

“Stripes will always be in fashion,” says Lyle. And we couldn’t agree more, especially when juxtaposed against vintage-wash straight-leg jeans. When you opt for denim that cuts off right at the ankle, you can show off strappy sandals in a gorgeous camel hue. Plus, the wedge elongates the whole look without sacrificing comfort.

“You can’t style spring looks without a little floral,” explains Lyle. Enter: a shoulder-baring top that shows off your subtle spring glow. Style with dark denim and a little straw bag for date-night perfection (add the Joanie wedge for a literal boost of confidence that you can comfortably galavant in well into the night).

A culotte jumpsuit that tricks you into thinking it’s a dress is the epitome of comfy and cool. Pair with a timeless denim jacket for crisp nights and city-ready wedges for a polished finish. “This is a perfect weekend look. I would wear this on a Saturday run to the farmers market and then to brunch with the girls,” says Lyle.
