Sandal Season Has Arrived

Well, hello, summer! Today is officially the longest day of the year and I, for one, am ready for some fun in the sun. To celebrate summer solstice and start the season on the right foot,  I’m rounding up some of my favorite warm weather “soles.” Living in LA, one can’t have enough sandals -- sleek slides, embellished thongs, ankle strap heels all have a place in my wardrobe. Here’s a selection from Net-a-Porter that caught my eye this year:


Alaia Bombe Studded Satin Sandals

Totally splurge-worthy and in the season’s hottest hue, these luxe yellow satin ankle strap flats scream summer.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Slides

Bottega’s signature butter-soft leather woven technique makes its way to these pretty peach slides that are perfect for going to a girl’s brunch or a family BBQ.

Chloe Qassie Leather Sandals

Block heels are great for summer; they’re comfortable enough to shuffle between meetings and yet still dressy. I love this pair with a cool hammered heel. Not to mention, they’re on sale!

Gianvito Rossi Portofino 105 Leather Sandals

I’m a sucker for strappy blush tone sandals, and these ankle strap stunners from one of my favorite footwear designers work with jeans and a blazer as well as they do with a floral midi dress.

Gucci Embellished Grosgrain-Trimmed Leather Sandals

There’s no better way to “kick off” summer than with these Gucci beauties! The ultimate sandal eye candy, I like how these feel modern, yet are adorned with the label's iconic webbing and signature grosgrain bow for a touch of vintage.  

Rene Caovilla Crystal-Embellished Leather Sandals

Thongs get a chic upgrade with this pretty pearl pair that’s inspired by Venice and the city's architecture. Get ready for the constant compliments in these!

Saint Laurent Woven Leather Slides

I’m currently living in these stylish slides. Versatile and comfy they are the ultimate summer staple.

Valentino Garavani Moonwalk Studded Leather and PVC Sandals

Rockstuds are officially a fixture in fashion and I’m liking this casual take on the studded staple. Bonus: they’re on sale!

Pro tip:

Storing your shoes -- whether archiving winter shoes or organizing the sandals in your regular summer rotation -- is critical to keeping them looking good and extending their life. I recommend boot trees to help your winter warriors stay upright and shoe inserts for pumps, sneakers and sandals.
