I think it is safe to say that we have officially entered the warm weather season. As much as I look forward to refreshing my wardrobe with new trends and styles, I cannot help but look forward to revamping my shoes the most. Because despite the fact hat most people focus in on the clothing itself, shoes play a critical role in bringing an entire look together. After months of closed toes boots, it is time to replace them with breezier alternatives. It is finally time to bust out those chic sandals to pair with breezy dresses, flowy skirts, and more. And lucky for us, there are plenty of styles that feel fresh and new. From minimal heels to chunky platform shoes, it is safe to say that there is a pair out there for everyone this season. At last, it is time to retire your old styles and replace them with these chic sandals that I just cannot get enough of.
Step into Spring Season with These Chic Sandals
Although the flip flop does not seem like a style that necessarily needs to be celebrated, you would be surprised at these latest styles. Gone are the days of the rubber flip flop. Instead, you will find an influx of more modern, minimal thong style sandals. From plain leather flip flops to sleek thong heels, these shoes are meant to compliment a spring outfit rather than take away from them. Their minimal design makes styling these sandals virtually effortless. Consider these shoes your next go-to pair for now and until the end of the summer.
On the contrary, there are spring sandals that offer a bit of height to the wearer. Taking a page from the resurgence of Y2K fashion, flatforms have also returned and they are actually quite polished. Instead of over-the-top height, modest flatforms are just what you need to enhance your everyday attire. While I personally love the neutral iterations of this platform sandal, there are also plenty of saturated colors for those who want to add an additional pop of personality.
Yes, you read it correctly! Mules are back on the scene. While these have previously have been more divisive, I think it is safe to say that the 2023 version of this trendy shoe is rather dashing. These new mules are much more contemporary, often featuring a refined wedge and sculptural silhouettes. The best part? Wedges allow you to add some height but they are far more comfortable than a heel or pump ever will be. I consider this a win-win for us fashion enthusiasts.
Admittedly, many of the above spring 2023 sandal trends tend to be on the minimal side. However, this next trend is a little bit more daring and avant-garde. Ankle straps adorning either flats or heels are a great way to make a statement with just your footwear. Plus, the ankle ties serve as a sultry twist to your standard sandals. When shopping new shoes to add to your seasonal wardrobe, search for ones that wrap around the ankle several times for a statement look.
In terms of coveted colors, this neutral is proving to be the talk of the town. Chocolate brown is quickly become the favorite of all your favorite trendsetters. It offers up a unique alternative to your typical browns and beiges. These dark brown sandals come in the form of all types of silhouettes and are a slightly softer variation of black sandals. I have linked a myriad of chocolate brown styles ahead.
