With the summer sun comes new fashion trends, as people start to ditch their heavy coats and jeans in favour of dresses, skirts and shorts. It’s a chance to show a bit more skin, get more vitamin D and generally relax in the warmer weather.
Footwear is a key area for budding fashionistas and is a very visible part of your outfit – so don’t head out with your Chelsea boots when you’re attending a daytime garden party. Whether you’re popping into town or jetting off on holiday, these are the seasonal staples you should be aware of…
Pointed heels are a real gem this season, offering a sharp style that’ll certainly turn heads. Whether you opt for something strappy or a little more minimalist, they’re perfect when paired with a skirt for a day at the races or sipping wine in a beer garden.
A staple that has reappeared year after year, gladiator sandals are perfect with a huge range of outfits – from maxi dresses to a jeans and a tee. Whether you choose flat sandals or heeled options, these strappy style icons are ideal for casual days out soaking up sunshine. They’re also perfect holiday shoes, as they’re light and airy.
It doesn’t matter what style of shoe you buy, from court shoes to slingbacks, white is the colour to go for this summer. Paired with a tan, they’re striking options that look great for more formal nights out.
The humble trainer is a constantly shifting shoe trend, an option people wear each and every summer but with slight differences. A few years ago, Nike Air Force One’s were everywhere, but this year we forecast lighter canvas style trainers like Converse.
Daytime drinks and weekend events demand a shoe that’s both comfortable and eye-catching. Wedge sandals are great options here, especially when paired with a longer dress. They are ideal for managing a whole day on your feet without sacrificing style.
With these options in mind, you can’t really go wrong. Throw together casual outfits with trainers, or pair up a summer dress with some sandals for a more relaxed party look. The options are endless – but the summer isn’t! Get out and enjoy it!
