On paper, buying sandals should be easy, but sometimes it can be hard to discern which styles are right for you. Should you stay classic with a leather slide, or trial one of the newer shapes which are gaining traction on new-in feeds? Fresh this season are fisherman style sandals in butter-soft leather which, as they are quite covered up, can be as practical an idea for warm days in the city, as they are for summer holidays. Meanwhile skinny thong sandals – no doubt, inspired by hyper-minimal brands such as The Row – reign supreme. They come with both thick and thin soles, how exaggerated you go likely depends on your allegiance to nineties and noughties-inspired fashion. Equally, the classic flip flop has been rebooted this season in an elegant narrow shape that makes it a more formal proposition. It’s fitting as this old reliable style is no longer just a pool-side essential. See them worn with tailored trousers and straight-leg jeans. On our radar is ethically-minded flip flop brand Sleepers, which is available at & Other Stories and Arket. Lastly, upgrade your look with a pair of sandals that go heavy on hardware. Think metallic touches in sculptural shapes, that elevate your sandals from beachy to haute. Shop an edit of the best sandals for summer below.
