One of you, my darlings, asked me to do this piece and she wrote: “I don’t like open-toe sandals, because I don’t like my feet, so it’s always embarassing in the summer, because I feel like everyone is looking at my feet. As result, I spend a lot of time wearing sneakers, but they’re probably not the only fashion solution. Could you help me?” So of course, I started tackling this problem, which, to be perfectly honest, I never even thought about, because I love open sandals, even though my feet aren’t perfect, but that’s okay, because a nice shade of nail polish and pedicured heels do magic. On the other hand, our feet are very sensitive and there are several reasons for their imperfection: genetics, sports, injury, or we simply don’t feel comfortable with them. Whichever your reason may be, I found five models of closed summer shoes, which you can slip into right away.
They will never go out of fashion, and thatis a big plus. I know that men don’t like them, but what can we do, they remain elegant and simple in their beauty. In the summertime, you can opt for lighter models or super classic black ones, which you can wear with anything. There are still those with a contrasting point or heel, because they don’t have to be totally flat, that’s really a matter of taste.
They’re a hit this season and you have to find a model that suits you bestand is comfortable enough, doesn’t come off mid-step and is high enough. Not the simplest task, but it’s manageable and keep in mind that espadrilles are seasonal and don’t last forever, because they lose shape quickly. I won’t tell you, which color or model to opt for, because there are so many options,there are evencute versionswith ribbons. And of course, you don’t have to just pick one pair!
Wear them with a dress or maxi skirt for the Ethno, country vibe that fashion loves, especially these days.Invisible step socks are a must, because without them, your feet will sweat and it will get hot, so wear (cotton) socks. Opt for classic natural brown leather booties and style them with a brown shoulder bag: a classic that never misses.
Out of all the suggested models, I like these the least for one simple reason: they elongate the feet. Being size 9.5, I’m not the biggest fan of mules, but maybe there are some among you that will enjoy wearing them. The new models don’t just include Gucci, they mayhave flowers, polka dots, appliquesand many other fun things. The heel can be very low or a bit higher for the daring ones, because these models are very, very particular.
Sneakers deserve to be mentioned at the end, because nowadays, they’re much more than just “sneakers”. Opt for light, pastel colors, because you’ll end up machine-washing them anyway, so why not. It’s good to opt for a brand, now that the sales are on, so I’m sure you’ll find something worthwhile. They won’t go out of style, so they’re a soundinvestment.
