When packing for a summer getaway, narrowing down your shoes to a reasonable number of versatile options can prove to be a very tricky task. That's why making a few strategic purchases before you start piling pairs into your carry-on is advisable. And as luck would have it, the collaboration between J.Crew and Loeffler Randall is here and it's serving up a stylish pool slide that'll likely rack up a ton of miles with you over the next few months.
Ringing in for $250, the Beattie Knotted Pool Slides take the classic, comfortable pool slide shape and add a dose of on-trend leopard to make them a pair you can easily dress up or down. The animal-print sandal is one of a group of women's styles being offered as part of the April 16 launch of the J.Crew Crewcuts x Loeffler Randall collaboration — a range of clothing and accessories designed by 11-year-old Clementine Murphy, the daughter of Loeffler Randall founder Jesse Randall.
Now, while you can certainly shop the collab for a little lady in your life, you can also score summer-ready styles, like the aforementioned leopard-print pool slides, for yourself, too. The neutral sandals will pair well with everything from denim cut-offs and breezy pants to silky slip dresses, thus making them a duo that'll undoubtedly be tossed in your weekender time and time again (if not just worn as part of your in-flight look).
In addition to the slides, there's an equally chic set of espadrilles in the mix for $225. Described as an espadrille sneaker, the slip-on style also incorporates the leopard print into its design with a sweet bow at the top. Pop on the pair with a flowy white dress on days you know you're going to be running around from sunup to sundown.
Continue on to start shopping the women's styles and head over to J.Crew to scoop up more pieces from the collaboration.
Pair these with a bathing suit during the day, and then throw them on for dinner with a breezy white dress — they work perfectly for either occasion.
These espadrille sneakers are the perfect travel shoe — comfortable, but still polished. Add them to your jeans-and-tee uniform to give it that extra bit of fun.
