Sizzling sunshine, beckoning beaches, and sexy cocktails in the city! It’s pedicure weather and we got the style report for this summer’s hottest shoe trends. Check out all the looks at SnapGlow.TV’s “Sexy Summer Shoes” photo gallery.
Bohemian Bling. It’s all about bedazzling and bejeweling in a bold, bohemian way. Dainty jewels on strappy sandals with chunky heels make a perfect chic contrast. Dazzle and delight in Sam Edelman's 'Quintessa' jeweled, gladiator sandals ($189; Vivi G. Shoes), paired with a TIBI green and yellow, ruffled floral, silk camisole ($228; Per Lei Boutique) and black, zipper-detail, short shorts by Robert Rodriguez ($245; Per Lei Boutique). You can also dress up summer’s bohemian-chic trend by striking the perfect balance of down-to-earth beauty and downtown chic. We particularly adore pretty accents on chunky wooden heels! How about a pair of studded, sling-back sandals by Daniblack -- a must-have for summer and super affordable at $150 (Vivi G. Shoes)! Wear the haute heels with skinny jeans for a casual Sunday morning look, or with feminine, floral accents such as a neon yellow, one-shoulder, asymmetrical dress by Robert Rodriguez ($340; Per Lei Boutique) for a night out on the town!
Animal and Reptile Skin. Keep it au naturel this summer! It's all about nude colors and reptile skins! Prance around town in your skimpiest summer outfit and a pair of sultry, (real or embossed) reptile-skin stilettos for an instant day-to-night look! We were inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s neutral-toned, open-back romper ($375; Per Lei Boutique), paired with the sexiest pair of snakeskin, gladiator sandals by BCBG Max Azria ($250; Vivi G. Shoes) for a look of effortless seduction.
Mad for Metallics. Glam up those fabulous feet like a true Olympian goddess! We are obsessed with golds, silvers, and bronzes galore! Metallics lend an elegant sheen, brightening and shining your look without being excessive. We were inspired by a neon-print, strapless jumpsuit by TIBI ($425; Per Lei Boutique), which was the perfect complement to bronze ‘Oasis’ wedges by Diane von Furstenberg ($310; Vivi G. Shoes). We also love Diane von Furstenberg’s ‘Monaco’ gladiator sandals in silver ($245; Vivi G. Shoes). The silver adds sparkle to any look, whether it’s a slinky dress or a sophisticated sailing outfit, a la navy, chiffon camisole by Vince ($148; Per Lei Boutique), pin-striped, drawstring pants by Georgie ($195; Per Lei Boutique), and a crystal and metallic necklace by RJ Graziano ($95; Per Lei Boutique).
Fab Flip-Flops. Flip-flops are the perfect footwear for a day at the beach to a night on the town. We particularly love the bright sherbet hues which makes us yearn for orange creamsicle-colored sunsets at the beach. SnapGlow.TV recommends Diane von Furstenberg’s “Lush” flip-flops ($65; Vivi G. Shoes). Although a tad pricey, these fab flip-flops are an investment rather than a splurge, offering you the structural support and quality aesthetics to wear them for just about any purpose and to any event. The Diane Von Furstenberg flip-flops come in pink, green, or turquoise – or better yet, get all three colors!
And of course, ladies, we are always a fan of heels – the taller the better! Dressing with proportion in mind allows you to emphasize your leggy assets while putting your best foot forward. Try short shorts and mile-high wedges to create the look! Put together a Theory button-down, khaki shirt ($190; Per Lei Boutique) and multi-colored, plaid shorts ($160; Per Lei Boutique) with a pair of boldly bohemian, wooden-heel sandals by Beirn ($250; Vivi G. Shoes) to accentuate those long, lean legs.
So put your sexiest foot forward, gals! Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw, and sashay around town in those coveted heels and sexy stilettos. The city, after all, is your personal runway!!
