A guide to your Summer Sandals

Although we know its rather annoying that one day you may be in a skirt with bare legs and open toe shoes and the next your in your winter coat and boots with your brollie ready to deal with a downpour! Regardless, we know after reading this guide, you’ll be ready to invest in the right sandals for summer so that when the sun does come out to stay we guarantee you’ll be glad you listened to us. We’ve scoured through the brands and styles due in this season & bring you on some of our top choices!

We’re not quite sure if there is a scientific relationship between the temperature and the expressiveness of accessories. But there does seem to be a link between warmer weather with more skin on show and more conspicuous fashion style especially when it comes to shoes. Time to get those pedicures done (have a read through our Top Tips for Summer Feet blog too) and let your toes revel in the sunshine!

Women’s Sandals

Luckily women have far more choices when it comes to sandals. From flip flops, walking sandals, wedge sandals or strappy casual sandals there is a style for everyone unique choice! Flip flops have been extremely popular for many years but only truly became fashionable in 2004.
