Fashion Essentials and Giveaway: Summer Heels

In parts one, two, and three of our Fashion Essentials for The Everygirl, we shared the must-haves that belong in every woman’s wardrobe. Now, every two weeks, we are bringing you great styling tips from some of the web’s best who illustrate how diverse these essentials are. Best part? We will be helping our readers build their wardrobes by giving away the featured item that week!

For the summer heel, we’ve turned to blogger and brand stylist Erika Brechtel of Small Shop. Here she gives us both an affordable day and evening look for the same colorful kicks from Zara.

Styling Notes from Erika:

With such a standout summer sandal, you can really pair it with basics you already have in your closet – a white tee for an easy day look, or a jersey L.B.D. for date night. I like to mix at least one other pattern for added interest, and something textured like this jacquard skirt (day) or a wicker clutch (night) that’s in the same color family as the sandal pulls the look together. Adding fun jewelry keeps it young, fresh, and perfect for some summer revelry!
