With winter bidding adieu for the year there is a different sweet smell to the air again. The days are getting longer and the air warmer. Needless to say, summer is here. A season synonymous with vacations, long walks, beach days and brunches, summer is close to all our hearts. It’s now time to ditch those neutrals and embrace the colors of spring. A well-designed wardrobe is all you need to get set for the season, well apart from sunscreen and ice-cream. Any outfit is incomplete without the right pair of footwear and the next thing you know you’re stuck with the same old style while the newness lies in the corner of your closet. Check out the seven styles you need in your wardrobe to nail that Spring Summer look.
A blend of sandals and flip-flops, slip-on flats are a must-have for the summer. Whether you’re spending a day at the beach or just running an errand, a pair of flats is your best pal. They look great with beachwear, shorts, ankle-length jeans, and even casual summery dresses.
A pair of comfortable dress sandals will probably be your most worn style during this season. Compatible with most outfits, a good pair of dress sandals help you look chic without trying too hard. Blend in some comfort by investing in a pair of sturdy block heels. You’ll find yourself wearing them with jeans, skirts, dresses, rompers, and jumpsuits.
For work and the more formal events of the summer, one needs a pair of high heels in a neutral pink or beige shade. A pair of light-colored pumps does the trick whether it’s a Friday at the office or a lunch party. You can pair pumps with all your below-the-knee skirts and dresses, jeans and ankle-length pants.
Not an exaggeration but a cute pair of ballerinas can be a lifesaver. These god-sent angels can be worked into any outfit casual or formal. Throw them on with a solid bodycon dress and you have an outfit for work or with a pair of skinny jeans and a cute top for something more relaxed. Ballerinas can be paired with short skirts, casual dresses, jeans, and leggings.
Wedges are great for when you want to look fancy but also be comfortable. They go with almost every outfit and can prove to be a real investment for your feet. Pair them with jeans, skirts, dresses, maxis, jumpsuits, the possibilities are endless. Wedges are another style that doubles as both formal and casual footwear.
Sneakers and summer go hand in hand. Perfect for those long walks, weekend hikes, sightseeing, and amusement parks, sneakers that are not your gym shoes are the ultimate summer essential for your wardrobe. Magically, you can pair sneakers with all your casual outfits, skirts, shorts, casual dresses, jeans, joggers and ankle pants. Chic sneakers are the perfect upgrade from athleisure to lifestyle.
Not just for men, a good pair of loafers is all you need when you’re too lazy for sneakers and too breezy for ballerinas. Stylish, hip and casual, loafers are extremely comfortable and hence a great pair for the summer. Throw them on with jeans, shorts and ankle-length pants.
