While wedged sandals and pointy toed heels are reigning supreme in spring fashion this year, another style of shoe is on trend for a more comfortable look this season: the slide.
Colorful, with platform bottoms or a simple band design, this season’s slide is a chic alternative to your average flip flop.
Dress up jeans and a t-shirt or a simple A-line dress with a slide in a metallic shade. Gold, silver and copper are hot hues this season and will look chic next to any skin tone. A pretty option is the Mezzo Flat Sandal in Gold ($45, Aldo). One large gold band is accented by two smaller gold bands in this slide’s design, offering more sparkle and coverage.
Never miss a local story.
Rainbow hues and Jamaican color schemes were popular combinations for slides on the runway; however, if you prefer to keep it more basic, opt for a slide in one or two bright hues like red or orange. The David Tate Fay Sandal in Red ($92, Belk) is vintage chic with its platform wedge style bottom and bright red suede crisscross design. Pair it with an off-the-shoulder top and skirt or black cotton maxi-dress.
If you want footwear that can go anywhere, a more classic style and color combination might be the best option for you. Camel, black, and brown are always safe and chic choices for interpreting a trendy style. The MICHAEL Michael Kors Joy Slide Sandals in Luggage ($110, Dillard’s) offers a single band style with a slight heel in a rich, light brown leather. These sandals will look chic with jeans or with your favorite weekend dress.
