How To Step Up Your Shoe Game This Summer With 5 Fresh Trends!


When it comes to fashion and style, there are fewer things I love more than a great pair of shoes. Summer is right around the corner and with it brings the perfect excuse/opportunity to step up your shoe game! There is always a plethora of trends that come about each season but I believe these five trends are the freshest of the fresh and will instantly add some sass to any summer ensemble. Take a look below and get ready to add some new swagger to your walk 😉


The Slip-Ons

A rage all over the runways and street style starlets the slip-on is this summer’s go-to, casual, yet cool sneaker. You can find them in a variety of color and prints to suit your personality. I picked up a pair for the Peter Pilotto x Target collection and wear them ALL the time. They look especially cool when paired with a more feminine dress or skirt or keep it casual and rock them with a pair of cuffed denim shorts. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how versatile the slip-on sneaker can be!

The Metallic Sandal

I’ve already expressed my obsession with metallics for summer – they’ve been trending in my shoe closet since last fall! There is something about the glitz and shine of metal that just screams summertime, or maybe I just really love shiny things. Metallic sandals are great for a summer vacay as they can easily transition from beach to nightclub without missing a beat.

The Blocked Heel

I adore a nice strappy sandal and likewise a chunky heel, put the two together and mind = blown! Switch a block heel sandal in for those sky-high pumps or wedges, they’re just as chic and work just as well for a day in the office or a night on the town. Bonus: they’re a hell of a lot more comfortable to walk in 😉

The Laser Cut

I’ve deemed the laser cut heel this summer’s ultimate party shoe! Not only can you find this in a variety of bold colors (Zara is especially good at this), but also in a variety of laser cut designs. I love how modern and sporty the laser cut is compared to your typical strappy sandal. This shoe will most definitely up your shoe game 😉

The Color Block

Another great versatile shoe option for this season, the color blocked shoe comes in both summer neutrals or bold hues. Go neutral for more classic everyday or go bold for some added personality and spunk! I find the color blocked shoes pairs especially well with cuffed boyfriend jeans or a flirty midi skirt.

    • Hi Niara! I would love to help you out, but unfortunately I do not know where those sandals are from. I found the photo on Pinterest, but couldn’t find the brand of the sandals. So sorry!
