Styling a Classic: Tevas for Summer

You’re looking for a comfortable sandal to take you through the dog days of summer. But you also want something trendy. With this summer’s fresh styles from Teva, we’re loving this brand for both. With leathers, metallic, fresh stripes and patterns, white soles, wedges and flatforms, rest assured, we’re not talking sport sandals here or what you may have worn to camp decades ago (though we do love a good trek through the urban jungle in ours).

Take a look at some great ways to pair these warm-weather must-haves with a little flair for a summer style that can go from every day to vacation, and that can take you from beach to brunch, to, well, pretty much anywhere you want to go! And don’t just take our word for it, editors from Refinery29 and Shape, fashion bloggers and Instagrammers alike are all rocking Tevas this summer, too.

How to Spend 4th of July in Style

4th of July Header

Patriotism, BBQs & beach days are some of the things that come to mind when we think of the Fourth of July. With the holiday quickly approaching, you also want to plan the perfect outfit that matches the occasion.  If you want to show your American pride, but don’t want to go overboard, we have a few ideas to help you – with styles you’ll love all summer long!

Classic and casual make for the perfect outfit for a day like the Fourth of July.  From canvas sneakers and slip-ons that are right on trend to a great tote bag to take you from the beach to the BBQ, adding in just a little of the red, white and blue can be a great way to look festive.

 

You may also want to consider a few top summer styles with a twist for the holiday. For guys, the boat shoe is always a win, however this summer, you may want try canvas! For women, a stylish espadrille is a fun choice and will likely be one of your go-tos for the rest of the summer.

  And of course, you may want to show off your colors beyond your shoes. From the perfect V-neck t-shirt to “mix & match” bathing suits or a baseball cap to top off your look, you can really have fun. (Stylist suggestion: Red, white & blue flip-flops are a fun way to add to your beach look!)

 

 

If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate, you can up the ante with a pair of kicks that really celebrate the day. We love these and think they’ll look great paired with pretty much anything from white jeans to shorts all summer long – so you’re not limited to wearing them just for one day.

3 Sandals Every Guy Needs

Blog-Featured-MensSandals-0503-V1

Summer is right around the corner and we can’t help but get excited for the longer days, warmer nights, and sunny adventures that make every weekend feel like a mini vacation. And since nothing says, “it’s time to relax” quite like slipping on a pair of sandals, we’ve rounded up the three pairs every guy needs this season. Whether he’s out grabbing the morning paper, off on an afternoon adventure in the great outdoors, or sipping cocktails as the sun goes down, these great styles will make him forget the office even exists.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

A casual slide is the most comfortable (yet appropriate!) alternative to staying in his slippers all day. Our pick: The Superstar 4G from Adidas – it’s a modern update to a classic favorite.

 

Dog Days

We know, when it’s summertime, the thought of wearing actual shoes isn’t one you want to entertain, but you still want to look like you put in a little effort. Up your flip flop game with the perfect pair of sandals that can go from an afternoon with friends at the beach to a casual dinner out in linen pants – just be sure to brush off the sand. Our pick: the classic Ohana Flip Flop.

Gone Fishing

An adventure shoe for getting out and about is a must-have for the summer. You need something that can support your every move – whether that’s on a shaded mountain pathway or trekking around the city streets. Our pick: The Keen UNEEK – designed to keep feet cool and dry. Plus, its signature two cord, one sole construction allows for a totally custom fit and provides the right balance of flexibility and support.
