While summer technically doesn’t get going until June 21, we all know it really starts Memorial Day weekend. Especially after the long, drawn-out winter we’ve had, we’re itching to get the ball rolling on our warm weather wardrobes. We’ve already been stockpiling dresses (from maxi to mini) and swimsuits, but we still need to search for the perfect summer sandals.
This season, “perfect” involves straps, ties or buckles and a rainbow of shades with pastels being a clear favorite. Whether you prefer heels, mules, clogs or flats, the new crop of sandals checks all the boxes. Most offer some sort of statement but don’t think they’re only suitable for your basic white tee and cutoffs combo. No, these sandals were meant to be paired with equally flashy outfits boasting nonbasic blouses, chain-link belts or pops of neon (just probably not all at once).
Ahead, 15 standout summer sandals guaranteed to make the season bright.
