Summer is officially here, and we couldn’t be more excited! If you haven’t already updated your wardrobe for the warmer weather, then there’s no time like the present to take advantage of some of this season’s hottest footwear trends. From strappy sandals to ‘90s throwbacks, and everything in between, 2018 is the year of chic and stylish women’s shoes. Curious about this summer’s hottest trends? Here’s five of the biggest and most prominent footwear styles that you won’t want to miss out on this season!
Strappy sandals are in, and summer is the best time of year to sport this stylish footwear trend. Even the most basic pair of comfortable flat sandals can look chic and sophisticated with the right strappy details. This season, our favorite flat strappy sandal is the Souvenir. With its fun textured leather, colorblocking details, and asymmetrical design, this flat sandal is sure to make any outfit truly eye-catching. Featuring a memory foam padded sock and back zipper for easy on and off wear, the Souvenir makes living life on the go a breeze. Pair this comfortable summer sandal with distressed jeans, skirts, or those favorite cut-offs you adore. This multi-functional shoe can accompany any of your favorite summer looks!
Ever feel like accessorizing takes too much effort? Why not look for footwear with intricate details that take all the guesswork out of styling? One of these hot, trendy details are hammered metal studs. Studded sandals, like OTBT’s Stargaze, are the ultimate, sure-fire way to add edge to any summer look. Add character to your outfit with these gladiator-inspired flat sandals, featuring whip stitch detailing, functional buckles, and a cork footbed with a super-flex bottom. These sandals are sure to give you the handcrafted look you’re going for and are a great way to add a unique touch to the basic jeans and t-shirt look.
One of our favorite things about summer footwear fashion is the prevalence of comfortable and sporty slide sandals. Speaking of, who could ever forget some of the most iconic flatform sandals of the ‘90s? If your closet could use a fun throwback style, then OTBT’s Gravity is the shoe for you! These retro-inspired platform slides are the ultimate summer slip-ons, with a stretchy woven fabric band, lightweight sporty bottom, and oh-so comfortable memory foam sock to make every step feel like you’re walking on air. Available in Gold, Mint and the classic Black, these Gravity flatform slides are the 21st century update to this tried-and-true ‘90s trend.
Gold and silver tones are always on trend for the summer, and stylish metallic sandals are no exception! If you are looking for new ways to incorporate metallic hues into your wardrobe, OTBT’s Meditate is the perfect addition. This wedge sandal can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion - and is made with high-quality materials and cutting-edge comfort features. The genuine leather has a soft, beautiful shine that highlights the whip stitch detailing and adjustable ankle strap. Its contoured cork footbed and memory foam padded sock are sure to cradle your feet in all-day comfort. Seriously, what’s not to love about this stylish metallic Mediate sandal?
From handbags to statement dresses, woven designs and detailing are surefire trends for summer 2018. Why not take advantage of this stylish summer statement with your sandals as well? And nothing screams summertime style like the Aviate sandals. With its basket-weave inspired design and beautiful textured leathers, the Aviate takes the trend that we love and plays with it in a fun, unique way. We love the upfront huarache woven style, which looks extremely flattering on any foot and gives us all the boho vibes! Pair this versatile summer sandal with that flowy romper you adore or long cotton beach pants for the ultimate on-trend, vacay-ready look.
