Need shoes now? We got you!
Probably the main trend from this year is minimalism. Interiors, simple clothing, and shoes.
So, when it comes to minimal shoes, it’s all about the barely-there heels. These means very few and very narrow straps and simplicity in their design.
The way to do a statement for this trend? Opt for color. While black and white always look chic, bright hues work for this trend too and brighten up a simple look or give a pop of color to jeans.
The trend is all about comfort and easy dressing.
Sporty-style sandals are big for this year. So, what do we mean by sporty? Not so much sports logos – but more, Velcro details, canvas fabrics, and chunky straps.
Think – hiking, but fashion.
Wear these sandals with anything from a simple jeans and denim cut offs outfit to summer dresses. The perfect everyday look for summer for a balance of cuteness and comfort.
We love the wrap sandal trend this year. It’s all about elevated minimal sandals with leather ties and knot details.
These sandals are similar to gladiator sandals but more minimal. Go for narrow wrap ties and minimal detailing to keep the look super chic.
Wear them with dresses but also with long jeans. To get the look just right with jeans or pants, tie them over the top of the pant fabric and allow the jeans to bag loosely over them.
Retro Prada and Gucci vibes are back for this summer 2020 trend.
This is one of the biggest smart summer work looks for the year and we have to say, we love it. Heeled loafers add elevated style to any smart outfit. Plus, they just so happen to be super comfortable too!
Look for chunky loafers with even chunkier heels for the right aesthetic. Choose simple and classic black or go for a statement print – like snakeskin – if you’re craving a little more detail. Buckles also make all the difference.
Love everyday sandals that go with everything? This is the trend for you.
Birkenstocks are a key brand for this trend and have been super popular for the last few years. Plus, a great thing about Birkenstocks is the comfort they offer with molded and contoured soles. Perfect for all-day wear.
More elevated leather and pattern versions also work well for this trend. Brands like Dries van Noten and high street favorite, Topshop has nailed the look in a wide range of price points.
Super Duper Platforms
If you’re not into the minimal kitten heels, summer 2020 has seen a revival of a chunkier look. The exaggerated platform. And this season, the bigger the better.
A great trend for those who like to add a little extra height to their outfits, the platform trend is open to interpretation to suit your style. Choose strappy sandals with a big platform, loafers with added sole or even simple thongs but with a flatform to get the look.
Square Toe Sandals
Still going strong this year and another of the major trends are square toe sandals.
This shape is strong and angular and adds an edge to any outfit. Choose strappy heels with sharp square toes and pair them with anything from simple straight leg jeans to tailored workwear.
Chain Strap Shoes
Jewelry on your feet? Yes, for 2020 chain straps are big and we saw them incorporated into many of the designers’ collections during fashion week.
Another throwback trend that isn’t for everyone, chain details on shoes is a statement look that can take your outfit from day to night instantly. Go for dressy sandals and heels rather than anything too casual.
Not sure about going head first into this trend? Try it out first with a pair of simple heels and a chunky chain anklet to road test the look before you invest.
Rope Strap Sandals
Our last summer shoe favorite is rope detail shoes. This super summery look elevates a simple summer or maxi dress in seconds. Go for simple and minimal rose detailing or go all the way and choose tie up wrap sandals crafted entirely out of rope.
Valentino carved the path for this look but if the $900+ price tag isn’t your thing, we’ve picked out some more affordable alternatives too.
Do this look causally and choose flats for an easy summer vibe that looks and feels expensive.
