It’s a tale as old as time – you’re about to walk out the door to attend one of many summer events, and all you want in the world are shoes that are cute AND comfy. You’ll be dancing the evening away at a wedding or spending date night walking on the beach (hey, a girl can dream!), and now, all you need is the perfect sandal.
Cork slip-ons are as sensible as they are trendy, so we’re sharing four ways to style them – no matter where your summer takes you!
Since summer date night is the perfect excuse to rock flirty prints and florals, complete your look with simple sandals in a crisp, solid color. This way, your shoes will complement your outfit, rather than taking command of it! For example, our favorite part of this ensemble is how the footwear accents the romper’s pattern – the white totally brightens up the outfit as a whole. P.S. If you’re not a romper kind of gal, these slip-ons also look adorable with a trendy, printed mini dress.
If you’ve been invited to a summer wedding with a casual dress code, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear comfy shoes (and dance in them all night long!). We love this sleeveless, chambray dress paired with strappy floral sandals – the simplicity of the outfit really lets the shoes shine! To draw more attention to your dainty, colorful footwear, choose accessories that match a hue featured in the summery print. A burgundy statement necklace or earrings would complete this look in the best way (tips for styling statement jewelry are on MeijerStyle.com here!).
For days spent showering moms-to-be and playing games like “pink or blue,” choose a dressier pair of slip-ons like this rose gold style. Metallic shoes in any shade look great with dainty, pastel hues (I mean, we seriously can’t get enough of this chiffon kimono + sandal ensemble). This look is also a must-try for summer bridal showers, but take care to stay away from white – you don’t want to overshadow the guest of honor!
For casual mornings with your girls when all you need is bacon and eggs, pair tan cork sandals with denim capris and an embroidered tank. An earthy tone like tan perfectly complements this olive top, and embroidered details bring a laidback, bohemian vibe to your look. Casual (and sensible) slip-ons are a perfect match for this outfit! If the day is extra sunny and you’ll be brunching on a patio, these shoes also look amazing with a flowy, neutral sundress.
If you don’t have a pair of cork sandals (or four) at home, get over to your local Meijer A-S-A-P! There’s nothing better than a versatile, cute and comfy shoe.
