While sandals and wedges are always a popular choice for summer footwear, they tend to acquire an overused look after years of similar styles. Despite designer’s innovation, the summer sandal is difficult to keep fresh, even though they may be beautiful.
The place to look is the fashion blogging world and red carpet. Today’s modern fashion devotees aren’t always looking to the top designers for their inspiration, instead they turn to the need for self-expression. Whether it be a love for 1920’s flapper dresses, or 90’s flannel shirts, it’s not always Dior and Chanel that depict the future of style.
However, occasionally the land of Haute Couture and thrift store shopping collide. This time, it’s in the form of the lace-up sandal. The latest summer shoe is all class and edge, with multiple variations in terms of function. Pair them with jeans and a blazer or with a floating dress and a metallic clutch.
Lace-up sandals have a certain sexiness that, when worn in contrast to a more demure ensemble, have a young, sophisticated vibe that appeals to your business-meets-pleasure outfit craving.
The best, and often most sturdy, versions of this sandal are relatively high-end. However, at least one pair worth investing in for its incredible versatility.
