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.

The 7 Most Coveted Sandals For Summer

700x400_blog_header

Sandals are pretty much the greatest thing to happen to your feet. Don’t get us wrong, we love our boots, heels, flats, sneakers…and well, pretty much all of our shoes, but when you debut your first pair of sandals for the season, you’re committing to more carefree weekend adventuring, more dining al fresco, more time outside just because, and of course, all the great warm weather looks you can finally show off. Essentially, you’re kicking off summer!

So get excited and then clear a little room in your shoe closet – we’ve got all of the must-have styles for summer.

 

You Know the Espadrille

Espadrilles have made a come-back and for good reason. From flats to lace-ups, leather and suede to canvas, and pops of color to metallic, we’re not talking about your mother’s go-to slip-ons anymore.

 

Block Party

If you want to look fabulously stylish, but also want to be able to strut your stuff from 9 to 5 (and then some!), city sandals are for you. With block heels to keep you supported, these shoes are the perfect summer staple to take you from work to rooftop drinks.

 

Slide into Summer

It’s time to upgrade your casual sandal pick from flip flops to a grown-up pool slide. This versatile style is great for everyday and is easy to toss in your bag to go from poolside to lunch or just for a quick stroll to check out the local scene.

 

 Feel-Good Footbeds

Sandals should feel good and you should love how they look too. While “footbed sandals” may not sound sexy and they’re designed to make your feet feel fabulous, you’ll see them in almost every fashion magazine and on every celebrity out there – plus, you won’t be at a loss for great styles to choose from. And when these become your favorites, you can thank us later.

 

Wow-worthy Wedges

Whether you grab a casual pair for a backyard barbecue or a more refined style for a day at the office, a wedge is always a good choice. They pair well with pretty much any summer outfit, elongate the leg, and are a great choice for those of us that don’t love pumps but still want a heel.  

 

All Tied Up

Adding a little sass to your summer looks, we are loving lace-ups this season. Pair with cropped pants or a pencil skirt for work, or with a shorter hemline or cutoffs for the weekends, these gladiator-inspired looks are perfect for summer outfits.

 

Get Strappy

Neutral, strappy sandals have been a wardrobe must-have for some time now, but we’re loving some of the new styles that touch on hot trends for the season – like suede, metallic and block heels.

Outfit Inspiration: Casual Spring Comfort

Blog-Spring-Outfit

Spring is officially here and things are beginning to warm up (goodbye snow, you won’t be missed!).  With nicer weather right around the corner, we can’t help but get excited about preparing our closet for those warmer temperatures.  No matter what your spring plans entail, we’ve chosen the perfect essentials for the well-rounded spring wardrobe.

On our must-have list for the season is a simple, black maxi dress, like the Patagonia Kamala Cross-Back Dress. It’s the perfect airy and comfortable staple to transition from day to evening activities – you can pair it with your favorite cardigan for work and swap in denim jacket for a more casual look when you’re heading out and about. As with any black dress, it is all about the accessories. Chic sunglasses like the Jessica Simpson 525 will be sure to turn heads, whether you find yourself strolling through town or for those of you in milder areas, maybe hitting the beach.  And nothing says spring fun like a cute wristlet to keep all of your necessities in one place; we like the Chala Mini Crossbody Bag for its versatility and the metal charm clasp adds a nice touch of whimsy.

Last but definitely not least, you’ll need the perfect pair of sandals to kick off the season. One of our favorite this year, is the simple yet stylish Flexx Band Together low-heeled wedge sandal. With a padded  insole, this shoe is sure to keep you comfortable all day and night.

So spring into the season and get inspired by our favorite warm weather look.
