7 CHIC PAIRS OF SLIDES YOU NEED FOR SUMMER

PAUL ANDREW Sandals // AG Jeans // CHANEL Nail Polish in “Ballerina”

Happy #TuesdayShoesday! Today, I’m talking about one of my very favorite summer shoe styles: the slide sandal. I’ve never been big on flip-flops (I can never keep them on my feet!) so my sandal wardrobe has pretty much always consisted of strappy styles. I definitely still love my gladiators and lace-ups, but right now, I’m all about the slide. There’s just something so chic about the simplicity of a slide sandal. Better yet, they’re ridiculously comfortable and work with literally everything from a striped tee and jeans to a breezy maxi dress. Case in point: my Paul Andrew slides that I’m wearing here. On Sunday evening, I wore them with this happy dress out to dinner and then today, I have them on with my ripped jeans and a button-down. (They’re definitely giving today’s look a much needed upgrade.) The little wedge sandals are basically like the LBD of my summer sandal selection.

The resurgence of the slide means there’s no shortage of options. I have found a million pairs I love from Nordstrom. From the most simple slip-ons (I plan on buying at least two pairs of these) to pairs adorned with tassels and pom-poms, they basically have every style you could think of – which makes it pretty much impossible to not find a pair (or five) that you love.  Here, 7 slides to add to your summer shopping list.

  1. This pair wins for all-around favorite. They’re super simple, super chic and under $60. Tip: buy two pairs.
  2. Loeffler Randall’s ruffle slide is just too good. It’s a style that can be worn with anything and everything. (LR’s tassel pair is pretty cute, too!)
  3. This pair looks more expensive than it is. The floral design adds a feminine touch that makes them perfect for a summer cocktail party. (The white pair would be a great options for a bride looking for a flat sandal!)
  4. That oversized bow and two-tone braided sole makes it difficult not to love these. Bonus: they’re under $100!
  5. If you’re after something super fun and really playful, look no further than Miu Miu’s fur pom-pom pair.
  6. I just ordered a pair of these in denim-blue. They have a cushioned sole which means they might be my most comfortable pair yet.
  7. As always, Ancient Greek nails it when it comes to fab, but functional sandals. I love their classic Apteros style, but it’s their newest velvet bow pair that’s topping off my wish list.
