This Is The Summer Sandal Trend We Can't Get Enough Of

Strappy as can be.

Summer is here, and the best thing about it? The footwear! No longer are your feet confined to chunky booties and rubber wellies (unless you're heading to a British music festival): now you can let your toes feel the breeze in a pair of freeing, breathable shoes. Maybe you're determined to stick to cut-out sneakers all summer long or are daring enough to try a pair of furry pool slides, but there's nothing quite like a wrap-around sandal to step into summer. 

Whether you've always loved Roman gladiators or want to channel your inner Greek goddess in a pair of complicated, knee-high lace-ups, or you prefer a romantic ribbon wrap, strappy sandals are a winner when the temperature rises. They're perfect for strolling on the beach or even a night on the town, depending on what style of heel you opt for: a lofty espadrille sole is ideal for pairing with denim on casual weekends, whereas a sharp stiletto is what you need for a night of club-hopping with your BFFs (maybe with a pair of emergency back-up flats in your bag for good measure). 

In addition to varying heel heights, the laces themselves also come in different lengths, meaning that if you're too shy to rock the fully calf-encasing version of the look, opt for a shorter lace that ends right above your ankle, and looks dreamy with a floaty maxi dress for a garden party. 

Whatever style you choose, don't forget to pair your wrap-around sandals with an unforgettable ensemble. As this style tends to make a statement, make sure you let it be the focal point of your look: for a night out, pair them with a slinky monotone velvet cami dress, and for a more low-key setting, try a simple pair of denim shorts and your breeziest kimono.
