Fashion People Have Spoken—This Is The Chicest Sandal Style Of The Summer

Mark my words: This is going to be an excellent summer for footwear trends. Whilst the summer months used to be synonymous with simple white trainers and strappy sandals, this seasons offerings cast a far wider net—pulling in fresh trends, comfortable staples and elevated basics that will keep you feeling chic throughout the season.

Of all the new footwear trends that have piqued my interest, no style has made such a strong impression as the emerging kitten heel sandals trend. Cut to the same low-heel height as traditional closed-toe kitten heels, kitten heel sandals offer a lightweight option that’s ideal for wearing through the warmest season.

With an open-toe design, these trending sandals retain a relaxed energy that is elevated by the subtle—yet impactful, kitten heel finish. Both a stylish addition to your favourite jeans-and-tee outfit and the perfect accompaniment to a floor-sweeping dress, this versatile shoe trend is about to become the most reached for in my wardrobe.

Whilst I’m charmed by The Row’s barley-there pair, high street heroes Mango, Zara and Reformation all offer elegant iterations that are destined to sell out.
