Summer Shoe Trends


Platform Slide Sandals

Everyone’s still obsessing over platform shoes and that includes platform slides. Black platform sandals are especially popular this season bringing everyone back to the 90’s style slides and flip flops. Trends from the 90’s and Y2K are returning so there’s no surprise seeing these retro style shoes making a comeback. 


How to style them:

  • This style of shoes can go with almost any casual outfit which why they were such a hit in the 90's
  • Pair them with a pair of shorts and your favorite band tee
  • Pair them with a sundress 


Strappy Platform Sandals

Strappy high heels and strappy platform sandals are trendy this season. Retro and abstract prints are a plus. Strappy shoes are girly and fun, they have the potential to add flair to a plain sun dress or casual look. 

Platform heels with chunky open toe design. Marble swirl pattern. Purple and green colored platform strappy heels. Squared toe, open toe heels. Summer heels. 70s y2k



How to style them:

  • Dress them up with a pencil skirt and a flowy blouse
  • Dress them down with a halter dress or romper


Flatform Espadrilles

Espadrilles come around almost every spring and summer mainly for their neutral colors and simplicity. Espadrilles come in many different styles. The most common being, flats and wedges. However, espadrille platforms are the perfect in between. They’re comfy and give you a little boost in height and confidence!

How to style them:

  • These would be great on the beach with just a swimsuit and coverup 
  • You could also pair these with a maxi skirt and tank top for a subtle boho look

Wedge Sandals

No surprise here! Wedges are back and I don’t think they’re going anywhere anytime soon. Wedge heels are a classic style that seems to come back every summer. You can’t go wrong with a good pair of wedges.


How to style them:

  • Wedges are another style you can dress up or down
  • These would be great at the office with a pair of linen palazzo pants
  • You can also pair wedges with a pair of wide leg jeans for a 70's inspired casual look
