After long months with our feet in boots and closed shoes which socks, we’re so happy the sun is finally shining, and we can start wearing those dreamy sandals and slingbacks we see on Instagram and street style photos from the last fashion weeks. In 2019, the options for summer footwear are endless, but we pinpointed the five hottest footwear trends so that you can shop for your summer shoes being sure you will be able to wear them for a long time:
Chunky black sandals
The chunky sandals and sliders with thick straps, especially in black, are one of the hottest trends for this summer. Chanel, Prada and The Row are some of the many fashion labels with the summer shoes that Alexa Chung and several of our favourite Scandinavian influencers are already wearing. Doc Martens black sandals with chunky soles and visible stitching are as cool as the British label’s boots, and give an edge to your beige outfit. Pair with dresses, jeans, shorts, paint suits, everything you feel comfortable with and get instant fashion points.
This summer, wear low-heeled sandals with super thin, barely-there straps like the ones by The Row and Prada. They look lovely with dresses and skirts but are also great with pants. They add chicness and sexiness to your jeans, and of course, help to elongate your legs.
The most feminine of shoes, slingbacks come with square toes this season, giving them a more contemporary look. They’ve been a trend since a while already but will be relevant to this Spring/Summer season. Slingbacks look fabulous with basically everything, including sheers socks to give them an edgy touch.
Mules are a great footwear option for spring but please, pretty please, make sure you don’t have cracked heels! For spring and summer, wear mules in cute pastel or neon colours that will uplift any outfit like these gorgeous Balenciaga pink mules. I must say that I am totally fond of pointy shoes this season.
Last but not least, we can say that summer has officially begun when we start wearing espadrilles! The chic wedge espadrilles that have been around forever and never get out of style, are a must for any stylish woman, from Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn to Catherine Duchess of Cambridge.
Here comes the sun!
