9 Sandals to Make your Summer
March 23, 2016
It might be sandal season all year round in Florida, but it’s still a thrill when the rest of the country catches up to our climate and the summer’s footwear styles appear. Here’s The Mall at Millenia’s guide to this summer’s styles, all of them available here at Orlando’s favorite luxury mall.
Jimmy Choo Perla
Cork wedges and summer go together like strawberries and cream — and sometimes the classics are even better with a
twist. Step forward Jimmy Choo, whose to-die-for sandal of the summer is Perla: a lasered cork wedge with modern, geometric patterning, plus nude metallic embossed leather uppers.
Wear with: A simple below-the-knee skirt or dress, for maximum impact.
Michael Kors Margeaux Leather Sandal
These thick crossover straps couldn’t be hotter right now. Michael Kors offers a sport-luxe sandal in patent leather with monochrome attitude.
Wear with: Cigarette pants and the perfect tee, for effortless summer style.
Sam Edelman Gigi Thong Sandal in Rainbow Zigzag
Because every girl needs some sunny dress-down summer flats in her life. More delicate than slides, but casual enough for the beach, Sam Edelman’s Gigi thong sandals are padded for comfort, and the rainbow zigzag will make your tan pop.
Wear with: White pants for the evening, or denim cutoffs during the day.
Stuart Weitzman Romanesque Sandal
Another modern spin on gladiator sandals, these Stuart Weitzman beauties combine handwoven raffia soles with a denim upper and leather ties with tassels: smooth lines, edgy fabrics, and a chunky yet elegant shape. Available at Bloomingdale’s here at The Mall at Millenia.
Wear with: A boho dress or peasant shirt and skirt combo.
H&M Coral Sandals with Fringe
There are no two ways about it: coral is the ultimate summer color, its ability to set off a tan almost supernatural. With the added appeal of a flirty fringe, these sandals from H&M are the perfect footwear for a long and sultry summer.
Wear with: A bright sundress — try yellow or teal — or hotpants.
Nine West Kassidy Wedge Sandals
Has there ever been a sassier shoe than this? If there has, we haven’t seen it. A raffia wedge heel with leopard-print straps and oodles of attitude. Available at Macy’s here at The Mall at Millenia.
Wear with: These want nothing more than to be worn with a perfect red manicure and a sexy short jumpsuit. Add a leather jacket and your summer nights are covered.
No sandals roundup — and no summer — is complete without Birkies. Stylish with everything and unrivaled for comfort, they’re God’s gifts to women’s feet, and they’re available at Journeys here at The Mall at Millenia.
Wear with: Anything and everything you own.
For those days when you want to make a statement without having to wear a heel, gladiator sandals are the go-to, and they’re still big fashion news this summer. We love Aldo’s Elireven style, available in gold or black, for its classic crisscross uppers and delicate calf-length ties.
Wear with: Lengthen those legs even more with a high-waisted skirt or shorts.
Kate Spade Collin Sandals
Be fresh as a daisy this summer in these utterly adorable sandals from Kate Spade.
Wear with: Dress pants and a shirt, to add a playful touch to a work outfit, or summer shorts and skirts any day of the week.
