Must-Have Shoes For Summer

Gladiator Sandals

It’s about that time to re-stock your closet with all things summer! Summer 2014 fashion is going to be totally HOT (get it?). Before you do your official summer shopping trip, we wanted to share four of summer’s must-have shoes!

Gladiator Sandals
Emily Blunt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker are just a few of Hollywood’s hottest ladies who have rocked a pair of gladiator sandals. Gladiators are open-toed sandals with multiple straps running across the foot designed to resemble Roman gladiators. These sandals are so versatile – they can be knee-high, ankle-high or top of the foot height. They’re cutest paired with cut-off jean shorts and a plain V-neck tee. We love these Jeffrey Campbell gladiators. They can be found at Nordstrom for $164.95 (buy them here)!

Short, Thick Heels

These are the most comfortable heels ever! The short, thick heel has been present on the latest runways. Short, thick heeled sandals go with almost any summer outfit and can easily be dressed up OR down. They’re perfect with a sundress. Heels similar to the pair above are sold at Express for only $79.90 (buy them here).

Metallic Sandals

These Metallic sandals are SO fun and cute! Taylor Schilling, Solange Knowles and Jennifer Lawrence have been spotted rocking silver and gold flat sandals. These have already been referred to as the “It” shoe for summer. They’re a little more exciting than flip flops and scream “beach season” to us. Buy a pair of gold or silver metallic sandals at Old Navy for $22.94 (buy them here)!

Slip-On Tennies

Summer is a great time for cute sandals and heels, but you DEFINITELY need a pair of slip-on sneakers as well! We love a fun pair of printed or colorful tennies — summer is the season to get away with fun shoes! Be confident that you can rock a pair of unique slip-ons with jeans and a cute tank. We found a pair of blue and white stripe slip-ons at American Apparel that we LOVE for $42 (buy them here)!
