3 Must-Have Shoes for Summer

How would you define your summer wardrobe? Most likely, it’s centered around three things: Light, easy and versatile. The best summer closets always are.

As the next few months heat up, we want to afford more time to savoring the good stuff, to seek adventure and for finding relaxation–less time for indecision or moaning in front of a laundry pile.

And believe it or not, our shoes have a great deal to do with that. Think about it. Shoes 100% make or break an outfit. You can pretty much get away with anything fashion-wise, so long as your shoes seal the deal; in the summer, this is key.

This is also why we’re looking to Nisolo. If you remember, we’re big fans of Nisolo around here. For quality designs with a great heart, you need look no further than their collection of shoes, bags and accessories. To help streamline your summer style, we’re sharing why we think the following three Nisolo sandals are all you need this season.

Get ready to say ‘bye to indecision, hello to easy livin’.

1. The Wrap Sandal

Why we love it: While the wrapped-ankle-pseudo-gladiator look is everywhere right now, we love that the brand’s new Cora sandal is a far more subtle take on the trend. It elevates your staple flip-flop to grown-up status, but with enough of a playful vibe to stay chic–and in your closet for a long time.

How you’ll wear it: This is a must-pack for any beach trip, the perfect complement to a boho-esque swimsuit cover-up as well as pairing with a vintage tee and high-waisted jean shorts.

2. The Slide Heel

Why we love it: Because we still have to work this summer, the Elizabeth slide will be on heavy rotation. With a barely-there heel, these will keep you feeling polished without the need to kick off at 5pm, making them a great option for that post-work happy hour.

How you’ll wear it: These would be great with your black ankle pants, a classic shift dress or even a linen wide-leg. Add the Lima clutch and brass cuff for good measure, and you’re good to go Monday-Friday.

3. The Classic Sandal

Why we love it: We all need that ol’ faithful that’ll save any outfit in a pinch. The Serena sandal is it. Available in both carbon and caramel, the ankle strap is equal parts flattering and practical, and the nod to minimalism will make even the most casual look appear breezily put-together.

How you’ll wear it: Honestly, with everything. You’ll want these whether attending a late-night movie in dark jeans and lived-in sweatshirt, to strolling the streets of Lisbon in your favorite sundress or drapey jumpsuit. Of extra note: These make a great sidekick to the Lori Tote, where you can hide your whole life inside without anyone being the wiser.
