Now that spring is here, we can finally start to think about our summer wardrobe. While our boots have been good to us this winter, we are glad that we can cast them aside and slip on a pair of sandals instead — bliss!
But what should we be wearing this year? Here are 2016’s must-have summer sandal trends:
Birkenstock sandals were huge in 2015, spotted on the feet of A-list mega stars like Heidi Klum and Drew Barrymore. It is no different for 2016, with the chunky sandals remaining ever-popular.
Taken from Jones Bootmaker’s range of ladies sandals, these comfortable Berkinstock Gizeh sandals add a metallic twist to the brand’s signature style. With them, you can effortlessly conquer two trends at once.
There are many other styles of Birkenstock sandals to choose from, including simple slip-ons that are perfect for the beach.
Gladiator sandals are back! Seen on the catwalks of the hottest designers, like Valentino and Alberta Ferretti, there are no rules this season. For a more subtle style, choose a simple strappy design. To embrace the trend head on, select a detailed mid-calf design and fully embrace your inner gladiator.
If you do go for full-gladiator, try to keep the rest of your outfit muted. A simple summer dress or casual shorts and t-shirt combo will look great.
2016’s sandals are all about rainbow brights. Harkening back to the 1990s, bright shades of red, yellow, blue, and green will make you stand out this season.
The great thing about this trend is that it can be channelled through a range of styles. Whether you prefer toe posts or slip-ons, choose a bright pair with embellished detailing to really bring your shoe collection to life this summer
