I have 53 pairs of shoes of which half are sandals. Each pair has their own custom shoe box sitting six feet high in my closet, never to be worn except for the occasional wedding. I do have three pairs of sandals on a reachable surface that are frequently worn without a doubt. Does this sound familiar? As fashion turns each corner, we feel it necessary to buy that shoe that seems so stylish, but why is it that we always go back to our staple sandal? Because a classical, comfortable sandal is what sounds refreshing during those hot summer days. Something easy to wear for a variety of events that feels good enough to walk in for hours but stylish enough to wear out on the town.
With that said, here are three must have sandals that should make you feel guilty for buying those expensive, unreachable sandals you have worn maybe once.
Nude Wedge…They are everywhere you look this summer and a perfect decision when
needing a comfortable heel. Wedges give you that support under your arch that stilettos do not. I would suggest a wedge with an ankle strap of some sort. This type of wedge provides more support for those long evenings out. Nude is an ideal color, because it can be worn with anything and gives a sense of long legs especially when worn with a short dress.
Black Thong…Not thong underwear, but the type of sandal that fits between your toes. Good ole beach thongs are a great everyday wear, but you need to include a dressier, black thong, possibly one with a patent leather strap. This type of sandal allows you to go from a play-date in the park with kids to dinner at night with friends. You can wear this dressy sandal with jean shor
Florescent Sandal…Does this sandal type have to actually be florescent in color? NO! But, go crazy, have a comfortable sandal that brings out your wild side. Make sure it excels
ts and a tank or spice it up with a bright colored sundress. Choices are endless with this sandal.
in the category of comfort, so you are more likely to take the plunge and wear something that brings out your true colors. Don’t worry about necessarily matching your outfit. The “I just threw it together look” goes a long way in fashion these days. If you are in the mood for jeans and a white tank, this will be the perfect sandal to pull your not so exciting outfit together.
Disclaimer! Please do not read this and throw your pretty, unreachable sandal collection away, but feel free to give them away to make room for these three sandal types, I believe is all you need.
