Perfectly pedicured feet are a must for warm weather – that’s the only thing I’m OCD about. I need to have sandal-ready feet at all times. But beyond that, there is, of course, the footwear. Pretty sandals like these just can’t be passed up when the temperature hits 70 (or 60 degrees for you extreme weather girls!). Pair any of these shoes with loose waves, simple makeup, and a loose, languid dress for a look that will keep the fun going all summer long.
Vera Wang Annie Metallic Sandals: These Vera Wangs combine mirrored leather with brushed exotic snakeskin for an unexpected mix that will win the gaze of all eyes on the beach. On Shopbop for $198.
Rag & Bone Sigrid Sandals: Probably the tamest of the bunch (and also one of the better-priced), these shoes can go from day to night with only the quick change of a dress. On Shopbop $290.
Schutz Alexia Sandals: Metal serpentine shoes are having a moment right now. On heels, they’re pure sex, but using snakes to accent simple flats is more of a surprise. On Shopbop for $210.
Esquivel/Irene Neuwirth Elizabeth: Okay, let’s go down the list – metallic, color-blocked, perforated, and bejeweled. For all of those features, this shoe somehow finds a balance between bright and understated. At Barneys New York for $1,200.
Alaïa Metallic Leather Sandals: Alaïa’s love of laser-cut makes an appearance on these Grecian goddess sandals. Oddly enough, the pattern tones down the look, coming in blush-colored suede. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,668.
