A fashion post of the 5 types of shoes that should be in your closet for summer '16 featuring athletic slides, laser cut wedges, espadrilles, embellished footwear, and basics.

Even though it's rained for 3 weeks straight here in RVA, I'm really looking forward to the warmer weather that's headed our way. I love my Hunter boots and duck boots, but I think it's time to retire them and slip into something a little more comfortable. Sandals and flats are one of my favorite parts of spring and summer fashion - there's always so many to choose from! This season I am definitely looking to invest in a few more pairs. I'm really digging the athletic slides, laser cut wedges, espadrilles, tassel and pom pom embellished footwear and simple closet staple sandals. Keep reading to see the 5 types of shoes you need in your closet this summer!

Athletic Slides

These seriously sporty sandals are making a huge comeback this season as part of the athleisure trend. They have been a staple for brands such as Nike and Adidas, but others like Puma have put their own twist on the athletic slide. In their collaboration with Rihanna they released the Fur Slide by FENTY, a daring, cozy twist on a classic slide. They're currently sold out, but keep an eye out for a restocking this summer if you want to get your hands on these unique slides. Not looking for something quite so flashy? Givenchy, Topshop and Tory Burch have also jumped on the trend and released slides for 2016. 


Laser Cut Wedges

The Jeffrey Campbell Rodillo wedges have been a staple in popular fashion blogger's closets for season after season and I can definitely see why. The laser cut detailing is edgy and dainty at the same time so they easily fit into any fashionista's closet. These shoes can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.



Dive into a pair of espadrilles this summer and you'll be in shoe heaven! These shoes just make me think about tropical vacations and laying out on the beach. They're super easy to slide on with a white t-shirt, boyfriend jeans, and Panama hat for an effortless weekend/vacation look. Wedge espadrilles are perfect for dressier vacation looks and I am loving the print on this pair from Marc Fisher.



Step up your sandal game this summer with pair of tassel, pom pom or lace-up sandals. These fun embellishments jazz up any basic outfit and they're just downright fun to wear. Not a fan of the crazy pom poms or tassels? Lace-up sandals have just enough detail to keep them from being too boring. I practically live in my lace-up tassel sandals from Sam & Libby when it's not raining. Invest in a couple pair of any of these sandals this summer and I promise you won't regret it.



Looking for shoes that you can reach for day after day this summer? These sneakers, sandals and wedges are sure to make the cut. Whether you're going to the beach, an amusement park, or a fancy brunch there's a shoe for each occasion. Jack Rogers Whipstitched Sandals and Tory Burch Miller Sandals are perfect for preppier looks and come in so many colors it's hard to choose. Minimalist sandals from Steve Madden can be dressed up or down and can be worn during other seasons.
