You might be starting to plan your summer travel, but what about your summer wardrobe? You couldn’t possibly transition your closet into summer mode without considering a pair of sandals. And while it’s still a bit early on in the season, there are a few summer sandal trends to keep under consideration while you shift your mindset (and wardrobe) from spring to summer.
A few you might already feel comfortable enough wearing, be it something with toe coverage, say the fisherman sandal, or a pair that won’t reveal your entire foot like a wide strapped slingback sandal. Those who wish to jump right in can make a splash in stylish raffia sandals or music festival-inspired lace-ups. And if you’re looking for something simple or classic, you can find that here too.
