It’s still very cold and Summer won’t be here for a while. This is, however, when you should start planning your Spring and Summer looks. I may not be able to buy everything I want for the season right now but there’s one thing I always get ahead of season and that’s shoes. This summer, I’m going with flip flops and slip ons.
That might seem like an obvious choice for some but you’d be surprised at the amount of people who walk around all summer with and sneakers on. I seriously don’t know how people do that, even if they aren’t outside that much. So, the obvious choice of flip flops and slip ons is what I go with.
Not to mention, I’ll be wearing khaki and linen shorts all summer long. Sneakers do not look good with these kinds of shorts unless they are very narrow. Flip flops are perfect these kinds of shorts and I can even make my outfit look a little more elevated or formal if I want to. I can just throw on some jewelry, a nice fragrance, and some slip ons and I’ll be ready for a summer date.
I’ll also be wearing a pair of white pants I bought last year which only seem to look good with flips flops. I might wearing them with slip ons this year but it depends on if I find a good shirt to go with them as I was able to find one last year.
Another thing to remember is what kind of flip flops or slip ons to wear for what you’re doing. I like to wear black or dark brown leather flip flops when I’m going out with my husband as they look a little more chic than something you’d get at American Eagle which will probably made of cotton, especially if they are Greek flip flops like these Versace flip flops. Though, flip flops with cotton straps are good for a casual day out.
Though most slip ons come in canvas, they can look good regardless of what you’re doing. It just depends on the style of the slip on. For example, if I’m wearing some khaki shorts and a casual t-shirt I’d wear some Vans but if I’m wearing some white linen shorts with a black t-shirt and some nice jewelry, I’d wear Lacoste.
As for what shoes women should wear this summer, anything but sneakers. Seriously, women have much more options for shoes than men so I can’t say what you all should be wearing. I can say, though, that summer is when you should wear those open-toe shoes, not during the winter.
