Summer temperatures are rising, and sundresses, shorts and tank tops are showing up everywhere. But hot weather and sunny days don’t mean you have to stick with flip-flops. Popular summer sandals this season highlight bright colors, delicate details and wedged heels. Armed with a few of the below styles, you’ll be set to show off your pedicure in the office or on the town.

Gold, bronze or silver shoes are surprisingly neutral additions to any outfit. Keeping the sandal free of embellishments like glitter, beads or jewels will give you freedom with your outfit’s color or style. Nine West’s sleek silver sandal with a low heel works any time of day. Pair it with skirts or dresses of any length or cropped pants to show off the ankle strap. An embellished metallic works best for the evening. Glam it up your look with gold or silver jewelry and a colorful clutch. Nine West features numerous metallic styles in a range of heel sizes this season – the Fort Worth outlet features the same selection for discounted prices.

Neutral wedges

Heels lengthen even the shortest legs, and rocking a nude or beige color creates the illusion of legs going on for miles. A strappy sandal or wedge a similar shade to your skin tone won’t visually break up your leg, making it extend right to the floor. Spice up the neutral shade with a wood heel, funky strap or cute buckle. Nude heels are meant to subtly compliment an outfit, and pair with everything. Stick with dresses or skirts for lengthy legs and that extra “wow” factor.

Espadrilles

This casual shoe’s defining characteristic is its rope sole or heel. Espadrilles also tend to include a canvas top with the unique heel. After that, there’s ample room to play with style. Pick a wedged heel with a patterned top for a dressier style suitable for work. Or, stay flat for a casual classic perfect for barbequing and lounging outside with friends. Fort Worth’s Macy’s showcases numerous brands of shoes, but Steve Madden’s espadrilles stand out with some sparkly detail.

Color Blocked Flats

Color blocking is an on-trend way to liven up your foot fashion. You can incorporate a solidly hued shoe into a brightly colored outfit, or color block with a multicolored shoe itself. Any style sandal works: Let a heel with contrasting tones be the star of your outfit or snazz up a classic slingback sandal with vibrant neon. Color blocking works best when you pair colors in the same general family: combine reds, purples and blues or greens and yellows. Keep your accessories neutral to let your true colors shine.

Strappy Flats

Flat sandals with delicate decorations are a comfortable but flirty alternative to heels on date night. Stick with graceful details like thin straps or small buckles. Sandals with ribbons or ties instead of buckles or slingbacks add a romantic touch. Fort Worth has more than ten Payless Shoe Sources, including one in the Hulen Mall. The slightly tougher gladiator trend adds a touch of “rebel” to an outfit. Find a pair with funky embellishments like studs or leather detailing.
