Summer Sandals: Top 5 Trends

Check out our top picks for the five sizzling summer trends.

Mixed-up materials

Glorious mash-ups of vinyl and leather – as seen on Cara Delevingne at Burberry – have made it to the high street in time for the sunshine. We’re loving the heeled numbers, or update your jellies with a modern flip-flop twist and a bit of embellishment bling.

Office Block Heel blush pink £60
Mint green jellies Dorothy Perkins £13

Birkenstock brigade

Once the domain of hippies and socks-and-sandals wearers, Birkenstocks have made a  comeback this summer. We’re embracing these super-comfy sandals, perfect for walking around in on city breaks.

Birkenstock £49.95
Office Hoxton £22


Classic wedges

Whether they’re chunky, slim, open-toed or strappy, wear your wedges with shorts and a blazer for a cute summer look. Pick a style with an animal print to embrace another of SS14’s top trends.

Zara Python £59.99
Warehouse Ankle Wedge £28


Slim and strappy

Channel ‘90s Sexy and the City with high-heeled strappy sandals, seen throughout the SS14 catwalks – bright colours are good, ankle straps are even better!

River Island Barely There £45
Zara Leather Strappy £49.99


Flat gladiators

We live in our gladiator sandals during the summer – perfect for day-to-night wear, they look equally great with skinny jeans for weekends or a maxi dress on the beach.

Faith Tan £39
KG Nadia £60
