With the warm weather settling in for a while it’s time to break out those sandals for the season. If you’re a sandal lover then you probably have a few pairs waiting to be worn already. If not you are most likely itching to get shopping for the newest minimalist sandals by now. Wearing sandals when the weather is nice is a great feeling.
You’ve probably already worn your sandals at least a few times during summer but there’s still plenty of warm weather left to enjoy. There are some fun ways to wear sandals that you may not have tried yet, and sometimes shaking up your wardrobe can be exciting. Depending on your personal style tastes the options for what to wear your sandals with is quite varied.
The rules of fashion are always changing so sometimes it’s good to look for some fresh ideas. Looking at your sandals and your outfits in a new way can breathe some new life into your closet especially if you’ve been bored with your clothing choices lately. Here are five fun ways you should try wearing your Shoessee sandals this summer.
1. With Cuffed Jeans
Depending on what type of jeans you like to wear, cuffing the legs can be really great in the summer. While it’s not a great look if your jeans have a baggier leg, skinny jeans with a cuffed leg pair really well with sandals. You can opt for sandals without a heel and this type of look is great with strappy or regular sandal styles.
Remember to think about your overall silhouette. You probably won’t love this look if your jeans aren’t well fitted and looking sharp. If you cuff jeans that aren’t as slim in the leg you could risk looking messy instead of cute and well put together. Dark wash or lighter washes are all fair game though so as long as they have the skinny jean look, go for it.
2. Wedges And Wide Legs
Speaking of sandals and wide legs vs skinny jeans, if you love your wide-legged jeans you aren’t left out of the fun. You can pair those jeans nicely with a pair of wedge sandals to look like you’re having fun and still look super stylish. Just make sure you aren’t pairing thinner heels with your wide-legged jeans. They won’t have quite the same effect.
Wide-legged jeans and wedges look great together so if you haven’t tried this look yet now is definitely the time. Wedge sandals are a super comfy way to add some height and keep your jeans from dragging on the sidewalk too. Wedges and wide-legged jeans will be a look you’ll want to wear several times over once you try it.
3. Maxis And Minimalists
Minimalist looks are super hot right now and sandals have definitely gotten the minimalist treatment too. If you are looking for a sandal that’s so strappy it’s almost entirely invisible, you’re going to be able to find that look out there. While strappy sandals look great with any outfit option you might try, like pairing high heeled strappy sandals with a mini skirt, they look especially great with maxi skirts.
Pairing a minimalist strappy sandal look with your maxi skirts this summer is a new option you may not have gotten to try yet. Even if you have worn sandals with your maxi skirts in the past, the minimalist sandals out there this year are a whole new ballgame. Hit the store and find a pair that you love, and then break out the maxi skirts. Don’t wait to try this look.
4. Laced Up With Short Dresses
Short dresses have been popular for a while now, and sandals look great with them even if you aren’t trying very hard. They just seem to be a natural fit since they’re both warm weather friendly options. If you’re looking for some new inspiration for ways to pair a short dress with your sandals, though, you’re going to want to look for some sandals that lace all the way up.
If you aren’t sure what that looks like, think ballet shoes but in a sandal form. There are tons of cute sandals out there that tie all the way up to your calf. It’s the summer version of tall boots and they look great with your short dresses. If you are a fan of fall weather because it means you get to pull your boots on, consider this look. It’s the best of both worlds.
5. Slides And Cropped Pants
Slide sandals have been gaining popularity so don’t be surprised if you see them everywhere right now. How you pair them with your outfits is of course ultimately up to you, but consider this look to see your slides look really amazing. Choose a pair of cropped pants in almost any colour (pastels and neons are both great choices) and pair them with a neutral slide.
Your slides will look great and while they may feel like they’re playing second fiddle if you have some bright colours in your outfit, they’ll still stand out. Since you’ll be able to really show off your feet because they won’t be hidden by a longer hemline or skirt your sandals will be on full display even if they aren’t bright pink.
