21 of the Best-Looking Summertime Sandals

Aside from flip-flops, the most commonly worn shoe during the summer would have to be sandals. But if you’ve been wearing the same boring, flat, brown leather ones for the past two years, shame on you! Especially since there are so many different styles to choose from.

We wish we could’ve included every kind of sandal that there is on the planet. There’s simply not enough time or space. What we did do is take out some of the guesswork by providing you with some of the most striking ones we’ve seen.

Are you getting excited? We totally get it. Shoes do that to us too.

Strappy sandals

If you really like leather, all good. Just make sure that they’re strappy. Oh, and that they also have a really high heel.

Just a touch of glitter

Glitter is a popular look from head to toe. So, if you’re going to apply some glitter eyeshadow up top, complete the look with some glitter sandals.

Leather and wood wedges

Yeah, we know that these shoes probably look a bit on the…side of clunky. But if you thumb through just about any fashion magazine (or read any fashion blog), it’s going to mention that leather and wooden wedges in the form of platform shoes are sandals that are definitely in style.

Don’t own a pair of sandals with feathers on them? Give it a try. You may fall in love—at first wear.

Platform patent leather

If you’re going to be spending the day outside, “pause” on the patent leather. It has a tendency to make your feet sweat. But if you’re going out on a date after sunset, they’re an attractive kind of shoe.

Wooden thick heel sandals

This is another kind of wooden heel to consider. Less clunky, more sexy.

If you love (love, love) tie dye, these kinds of sandals are an absolute must have. Like right this second!

Fringe (flat) sandals

Fringe is everywhere in fashion. Including on sandals. Neutral hues tends to make them look more like moccasins. Bright colors are lots more fun.

Outrageous neons

It’s a radical shoe. And that’s why we love it. Plus, neon is a big color this season. It’s a win/win all the way around.

Metallic gladiator sandals

Gladiator sandals are everywhere. So, why not put them on your own feet (and legs)? They’re great with shorts and a mini skirt. And metallic ones are very trendsetting.

Two-tone sandals

Say that you have a neutral shirt dress that you want to wear. Something that can add a bit of flavor to it? A pair of two-tone sandals.

‘Dressy’ gladiators

Here’s another take on gladiator sandals. There’s a high heel. It’s the sexier version for dressier occasions.

Fringe (high heel) sandals

And here’s another take on the fringe sandal. We don’t mind this one being a neutral shade because the heel makes it so seductive.

Pretty in coral

If you have an event coming up that requires a suit or conservative kind of dress, these shoes would go with it quite well. Plus, coral is a popular color right now.

Grecian (rope) sandals

If you’re lusting after these shoes, we can certainly see why. We’re not sure if a high heel sandal gets any better than that.

Peek-a-boo polka dots

Are you someone who prefers to wear flats? A peek-a-boo toe with a polka dot pattern is so dainty and feminine.

Clear heel sandals

A clear heel is yet another big trend. We like it because it goes with everything.

Animal print thong sandals

Animal prints are always going to be in vogue. Plus, they are something that also goes with so many different outfits (and colors).

Lace thongs

Thongs are typically pretty casual. Unless they have some lace on them. Then you can wear them with cut-off shorts or a maxi dress.

Black platform sandals

This kind of platform sandal is a bit more flattering than some of the other platform sandals that are getting a lot of press right now. Plus, the style makes them a bit more comfortable too.

Beaded footless sandals

Nothing says a day at the beach quite like some beaded footless sandals. Please don’t put your feet in the sand this summer without ’em, OK? Cool.
