Officially, we can start wearing sandals and shoes – and below we recommend the 5 models that will upgrade your summer style.
The truth is that nothing suggests the spring arrival better than the colored or cutout shoes, and the transition from tights to “bare foot”. In a way, the beauty of this season lays in this simplicity: there is no need to worry to blend and match colors or textures, it is enough to add a pair of new shoes to the simplest outfit, and you’ll immediately obtain an outfit for the new season!
Slip-ons – or street slippers
Last spring witnessed the appearance of the back-cut moccasins. This year, this model remains an equally good idea if not a better one. In addition to the classic models, you will find in stores espadrilles and back-cut-trainers, knitted or decorative slippers with flowers, beads, fur, feathers or short fringes, even models whose round peaks resemble those of ballet dancers, slippers with wide crossed straps and platform. We recommend them, because they are comfortable and partially cover your foot (a good thing in the mornings, when it is still cool!).

Slingbacks – or shoes with a back strap
They are stylish and feminine, and in stores you will find them in a multitude of colors, high heels and decorations (we prefer the ones with the ribbon in front). We suggest matching an intense pink pair with white or khaki trousers.

V-toes – or the most modern shoes in V shape
If you dare a style in trends, this season forget about the round, square, or almond-shaped shoes. The V-toe model is the most modern form taken directly from the podium where the collections of the big fashion houses are presented. Because they have a prolonged tip and a V-cut, they will give an interesting note to any outfit and fit especially wide pants (long or over the ankle). It’s just a matter of habit until you get to buy more pairs…

This season, fashion fell in love with strong colors: red, canary yellow, cobalt blue, purple, emerald green, lime green, orange. If you’re the type of person who wears navy, black, denim, beige, gray and white, we suggest you to add a pair of colored shoes to your wardrobe. A red or green touch of color will completely transform an outfit, consisting of a white shirt and a pair of jeans.
Have you noticed how fashionable are the embroidered blouses and dresses, inspired by the folk fashion of the ’70s? If you have such pieces in your wardrobe, clogs are the shoes that match the best. In addition, they are resistant and will last a few years.
