Whether you’re lounging by the pool or sipping a cocktail at the beach bar, PVC mules are the perfect shoes for the season. Demonstrated by the likes of Chanel’s double logo slides and Cult Gaia’s Perspex sandals, its semi-naked appeal, thanks to its transparent straps, adds a clean touch to any summer look.

2. Strappy Heels

Strappy, slinky, and ever so flattering, these heels are a nod to the ’90s minimalism and are great for elongating any figure. Defined by their super thin straps, and seen by the likes of Jacquemus, By Far, The Row, and more, these sandals are a perfect addition to any summer dress or shorts.

3. Square Toes

The pointed shoe may be a classic when it comes to footwear, but the square toe has been steadily on the rise. The clean, geometric shape that’s found in anything from mules, slingbacks, pumps, and ankle boots, adds a touch of modernity to any outfit.

The controversial trend of the 2000s, heeled thongs, are coming back in a big way, with a chic 2019 makeover—sleeker, sexier, and surprisingly, hard to resist. Don a pair with well-manicured toes in tow.

5. Chunky Dad Sandals

This summer, the infamous dad sneaker meets it’s suddenly fashionable counterpart: the dad sandals. Reminiscent of hiking or camping trips, this season saw iterations of the chunky sandal all across the runway. From cute to elegant—Teva, Nanushka, to Prada and The Row, these shoes have a minimal sporty appeal and are delightfully comfortable for your feet.
