White sandals are big for summer

White sandals are a timeless summer shoe – these are the best to buy now

Posted by for Fashion

Say bye bye to black and ta-ta to tan for this summer; it’s all about the white sandal.

There are your run-of-the-mill shoes and then there are shoes, namely those belonging to the perennial family which, time after time, year after year, can be hoisted out from the dusty corners of our wardrobes and used to complete a variety of outfits.

That midi dress you’ve struggled with knowing how to style? Just add white sandals! Those wide-legged white flares that you’ve been drowning in without a clue? Just add white sandals! You get where this is going. Essentially, white sandals are the sum of any style equation you could ever possibly think of.  

There’s not a set style that comes up trumps – although the chunky, fisherman and strappy varieties are particularly hot for this summer – the only rule is to keep your white sandals just that: white. Which means steering clear of wearing them to that dusty pub garden or throwing them on for that lazy, and in turn drunken, afternoon in the park (see: grass stains).

Simply keep yours as crisp as the day you first bought them, pair them with a sun-kissed glow and off you go! These are the best styles to shop now.
