Summer Shoe Trends I Cannot Get Enough Of

Ankle Wrap-Up Sandals

Starting with the style that quite literally screams “go big or go home”. Sandals, whether they be heels or flats, with straps that weave up your leg – sometimes up to your knee – are making huge waves this season. Out of all the summer shoe trends, I think these take the cake in terms of conversation-starting footwear. As mentioned, shorter dresses and skirts are perfect for taking your ankle wrap-up shoes for a spin. And if you have not heard the news by now – gladiator sandals are back and pictured everywhere from Bella Hadid to the Valentino SS runway. Get ahead of the trend by shopping below. 

Platform Shoes

Take your outfits to new heights with these next summer shoe trends. Platform sandals are not only amazing for adding a few inches to your height and elongating the legs, but they happen to elevate any outfit. The best part is that platform shoes have been adapted to accommodate both day and night. For example, sky-high mary janes are ideal for enhancing your day-to-day wardrobe, while ankle-breaking platforms like the ones Versace popularized are perfect for nighttime festivities. 

Metallic Shoes 

If you love accessories with a touch of glam, this might be your favorite amongst these summer shoe trends. You can even up the ante by shopping for sandals with embellishments that will give it that extra pop and sparkle. Metallic shoes are a surefire way to make all your looks feel more expensive. However, do not get it twisted! There are plenty of metallic beauties that will not cost an arm and a leg. Need proof? Shop the below section which are all $250 and under. 

Saturated Tones

When scoping out summer trends earlier in the year, it was pretty evident how big the bold color trend would be. Well, of course, this transcends just clothing and has conveniently dripped down to accessories too. Saturated sandals and pumps are key to making your summer looks pop, even if you are just wearing a simple jeans and tee outfit. If you are totally invested in this trend, feel free to shop the rainbow. 

Fisherman Sandals 

Last but certainly not least we have the fisherman sandal. Although there is polarity between those who adore them and those who don’t really care for them, one thing is for sure, they are a fun way to enhance your summer outfits. On the more casual side, these sandals blew up to become one of the larger summer shoe trends. Perfectly strappy and practical, these beauties are great for styling with minimal summer dresses or even a pair of loose trousers. If you are in on the trend, shop my favorite picks below.
