I like how shoes have their own trends every single season. It’s just exciting to me to alter my wardrobe with the different trends every year. In this particular post I’m sharing my favorite summer shoes and I’m also giving you a few style options, in case you love them too! I hope you like this post, as I’ve worked on it all day yesterday haha. Soooo if you do, show it some love 🙂
POM POM SANDALS
The moment this trend started to become popular, I was first in line to shrug it off because I just thought it was absolutely ridiculous. To me the pom pom trend looked like a naughty four-year old took some colorful pom poms out of her crafting kit and just glued it on to some strappy sandals. But recently I had a change of heart, not a big one, but at least I don’t despise these shoes anymore. I personally don’t think I would purchase them any time soon, but I can now see why some would find them cute. They’re colorful, they seem comfortable and are just the epitome of what I think the ultimate summer shoe would look like! Perfect for a shopping day, a relaxed lunch date, a raving music festival and more..

Unlike the pom pom sandals, I did immediately like the espadrilles ever since they came back in the picture this season. I have came across so many different colors and designs on various online shops. At first, the fact that these shoes are made mostly out of straw concerned me for their comfort level. But after purchasing one of my own, I can say that they’re pretty comfortable. I haven’t walked around in them for too long just yet, but so far so good. Lately I’ve noticed, espadrilles are also very much on display on Instagram! Whether you want to travel in style, go into the city with your friends or just have the most casual day ever, espadrilles are a way to go!

If you spent the majority of your day reading through fashion blogs and going through fashion accounts on Instagram like I do, you’d see tons of these transparent heels going around…seriously! From strapped sandals all the way to over-the-knee boots, it’s a serious summer trend alert! I’ve seen numerous looks with perspex heels and one thing is clear, these shoes scream EDGY! I might have to get me a pair soon. But I wonder if wearing perspex heels for too long, would leave you with stinky, sweaty feet? Because I can imagine that being everything but comfortable. And there’s also the fact that your feet are completely bare in these, so I feel like a pedicure and cute nail polish are essential. But other than that, perspex shoes are the perfect choice for a romantic date night, a fun night out with your pals or just any occasion you feel like ‘slayin’ everybody with your bomb outfit!
Blame Rihanna! Blame Rihanna for the fact that these furry slippers are even considered a trend. Because ever since she launched the Fur Slide collection with Puma, people have been going crazy about fur slippers. Including myself. But I wasn’t one of those crazy enough to spend 80 euros on slippers, so I guess I have to settle for the next best thing: dupes. The same style, the same furry-ness, the same colors and more, but for a fraction of the price! I’m contemplating on getting a pink one, of course, but I doubt I’m going to actually walk out of the house with them on. Is that weird? I mean I think they’re cute and all, but other than maybe going to the grocery store, taking the trash out and getting my mail, I don’t see myself wearing them ‘out’. Maybe I should reconsider purchasing them haha!
I’m sure there are plenty more summer shoes trending this year, but these four are the ones that I acknowledged the most. What are your thoughts on these trends? And do you have a favorite? Let me know in the comments down below.
