Now that we’re in May (although perhaps the weather thinks it is still March…) many of us are starting the search for the perfect pair of summer sandals. If you are just starting out on your mission, or have been searching for years but are constantly left disappointed, we’re here to cut out hours of trawling the internet to find you the perfect pair.
We’ve put together the ultimate shortlist of the sandals that will see you through the entire season and many more summers to come. After a debate in the Who What Wear office, our fashion editors decided that there are five styles of sandals that will see you through every warm-weather occasion coming up this year.
First up, we have the flat, slip-on sandals that have been favourites for many seasons, followed by the archival appeal of fisherman sandals, which will work for coastal walks or a day of window shopping. Then, on the other end of the sandal spectrum, we have the ultimate dress-up-dress-down shoes—kitten heels—and heeled platforms, both ideal for any weddings you have coming up this year. Last but not least, we have chunky flip-flops, which perfectly bridge the gap between smart and casual.
