Not Your Everyday Sandal, What’s In Style Now
As temperatures soar and the world continues reopening, it’s time to step back on the scene in style. Before you reach for your old faithful thong flip flops, consider reaching for these sandal updates to enhance alongside your fresh pedicure. Read on to discover what sandals are in style for 2021!
Details that you should be looking for to elevate your summer strut are angled square toes, sleek wedged flip flops, puffier and comfier straps, kitten heels for those not ready to commit to their stilettos, and mules made for walking. Don’t be afraid to mix and match these details, as you will notice many sandals hold more than one of these elements (i.e., puffy straps offered with a squared toe). Whether you aren’t ready to strut in your 6″ heels or you’re looking to upgrade the slip-on slides you have been living in, there is something in there for everyone.
These sandal upgrades may make you feel nostalgic, and that’s because these trendy details have come full circle from the ’90s and early 2000s. The timing of these blasts from the past feels right for the moment. Many may be looking for height or an appeal to look more put together but aren’t ready to let go of the comfort that many have prioritized over the last few months.
See here five sandals that you should consider this summer as you step back out!
