Time to bare those totsies and ankles! And in preparation, we go through our favorite shades of pedicure, have some footspa, and update our summer shoes. You know, summer is the season that calls for the most creative of footwear, and the options are endless. But here are the top five shoe trends to grab for this season.
Cut-out & Strappy: Caged Heels

For girls who love to rock booties in summer but couldn´t brave the hotness and sweatness on their feet, cage sandals and heels are the answer. I love wearing them with denim shorts or airy tunic tops. In fact, I already have a dress cage sandal exactly that of Sam Edelman´s, but it´s gray. I love them because of the edgy element that they add to casual summer outfits.
Choose the style that´s right for you – cutout or strappy. They´re your perfect bootie/sandal hybrid.
Mid-Heel Sandals and Pumps

Expect lots of outdoor activities and affairs this summer. And because you´ll be on your feet most of the time, you need a pair of smart and fashionable mid-heel pumps or sandals. From kitten heels to wedges and platforms, this style trend got you covered.
Slides + Mules

I really admire women who could stand high in a stunningly skyscraper mule such as this of Giuseppe Zanotti. I find them challenging to wear due to the absence of back support. But I like mules because of their dressy approach to minimalism and casual. Yet when it´s time to just relax and chill out without sacrificing style, I love to slip my feet in a pair of slides.
Bright Flat Sandals

I said it already, pack some colors this summer holiday with vibrant sandals. They´re cute and sweet and they´re made to add interest to your beach looks. But whether or not you´re actually hitting the beach or you´re simply hitting the mall with your girl friends, bright and versatile flats make you grounded in style.

Is it hard to imagine that espadrilles is everyone´s forever favorites? Okay, probably not everyone because personally, they´re not my best favorites. But think about it, these classic beach shoes are cool, comfortable and sporty anytime, anyday of summer. Wouldn´t you want to have a pair?
