Make no mistake – summer is the time for sandals. After hiding your feet in thick shoes to protect them from the cold weather, you can now revel in the warm open air in your favorite flip-flops and gladiators. The feeling of freedom is probably the most important part of wearing them, but don’t forget that you still need to coordinate with your wardrobe and activity. Think about what you’ll be doing this season and imagine yourself in the perfect pair of summer sandals for each occasion. Our Top Ten includes:

  1. Sandals for picnic

    Picnic in the Park – spread out on a comfortable blanket with your favorite book and a cooler full of refreshing drinks and snacks. You’ll probably go barefoot when you’re lying down, but Jack Rogers Navajo Mid Wedge in Lime sandals will have you coming and going in comfort and style.

  2. Sandals for drinking

    Happy Hour – sitting outside your favorite restaurant, pub, or wine bar with some friends is always on order during the summer. Make weekend plans, gossip, and show off your new pair of Steve Madden Hanaa in White Leather while you flirt with the bartender.

  3. Sandals for Amusement parks

    Amusement Park – whether the excuse is having to go with the boys or taking your nephew as a favor, you know deep down you love the thrill of some of these rides. But you definitely need to wear shoes that are both comfortable and that let you stay on your feet, like these beautiful Sam Edelman Greco Chestnut Leather gladiators.

  4. Sandals for the beach

    The Beach – we all have our favorite beach footwear. As long as they are comfortable, it can be a pair of wedge flip flops or cork sandals. But sometimes, comfort is not enough. Check out the Tory Burch Caylan Tan/Blue Leather sandals to stand out from the crowd.

  5. Sandals for outdoor concerts

    Outdoor Concert – are you ready to rock? Perhaps some classical music is more your style. Either way, you need a pair of summer sandals that you enjoy standing in while looking your best in case you get pulled onstage. Check out these Dolce Vita Aries in Teal Suede.

  6. Sandals for sunset parties

    Sunset Party – while all the fun in the sun can be a blast, the best thing about the warm weather is being outside at night. Party in the evening and into the night with a pair of sandals that are classy and comfy. Slip on a pair of Juicy Couture Frankie in Orange Suede and you will blend summer casual with the undeniably chic.

  7. Sandals for the pool side

    Poolside Revelry – we see a pool in your future. Whether you just like being poolside, float on a pool chair, or show off your diving skills, having a pair of Stuart Weitzman Bloom Jellies in White to slip into can make you feel special.

  8. Sandals for Summer BBQ

    Family Barbeque – need to show your cousins what makes you the pride and joy of the extended clan? You’ll want to make sure you look your best – not too conservative, not too outrageous. A pair of Steve Madden PG Tips Multi Leather can be the perfect punctuation point.

  9. Sandals for the hammock

    Hammock Time – after all the activity, there is nothing like lying in a hammock for a much-deserved nap. Stretch out, hang your pair of Tory Burch Miller Hibiscus Pink Patent sandals off the side and feel worlds away from your cares and worries. Nothing could be more perfect.

  10. Sandals for shopping

    Shopping! – it cannot and should never end. But during the summer, shopping feels more invigorating than during any other season. Show up wearing Kate Spade’s Idonia in Gold Leather and show your favorite boutiques that you’re serious about finding the newest summer trends to mix and match with your favorite sandals.

Whatever your favorite activities are for this season, bring your sandals along. You’ll soon find that you can’t be without them this summer or any other summer for that matter.
