Metallics are perfect for a chic, dressed down look or an elegant, dressed up look. The bright, shiny look is considered a luxe style and it just makes everything a bit more fabulous! Check out my favorite: GoJane Metallic Platforms
Flatforms are a pretty new trend and I must say, I'm into it. I don't have a pair yet but I'm exploring it! Does anyone have a pair? Check out my favorite: Kurt Geiger Palma Flatform Sandals
The trend of the spring was lace-up everything and it's definitely carrying over into the summer season. I'm all for it! Check out my favorite: Billabong Beach Brigade Sandals
4- BLOCK HEELS
Block heels are what I call a functional favorite. Why's that? Well, the thickness of the heel makes it comfortable. I'm always looking for the best of both comfort and style! Check out my favorite: Rebecca Minkoff Christy Lace-Up Block Heel Sandals
Espadrilles are classic summer shoes and of course, I've been seeing them everywhere this season. They come in so many different types- like wedges and even flatforms- but I mostly see them as slip-on canvas sneakers. It's not completely my style but maybe it should be! Am I missing out? Check out my favorite: Sole Society Canvas Espadrilles
Criss-cross sandals are flat with really thick straps exactly like the pair in the photo above. These sandals are both chic and super comfortable. What is there not to like? I have a similar pair and I basically wear them everyday! Check out my favorite: Steve Madden Mylia Criss-Cross Slider Sandals
Caged, or gladiator, sandals are absolutely nothing new but they are a huge trend for this summer. It may not leave you with the best tan lines, but this trend is here to stay and it's a fabulous way to add some detail to a basic look.
Check out my favorite: Kristin Cavallari 'Poppy' Caged Sandals
Beaded sandals are one of my favorite emerging sandal trends! Remember those friendship bracelets you wore as a kid? Well, now you can have them on your shoes! It really gives sandals a bohemian or aztec vibe and the intricacy of the detailing is stunning. Check out my favorite: ASPIGA Chahana Sandals
