Here’s our top 6 cute summer sandals for women that will amp up your vacation style this summer:
More gladiator sandals here!
The gladiator sandal has been popular for a few years now, but they seem to be rising to new heights this year.
I love this style for adding interest to a simple outfit, and especially for exploring cities. Since they tend to be higher in price than other sandals, I would look for a neutral versatile shoe that would coordinate with lots of colors.
Also, the shape and style are attention getters so there is no need to go for bold colors or patterns. If you are a little shoe shy, you can always go for a lower cut and still get the gladiator look.
Here are comfortable walking sandals that are stylish, too!
More lace up sandals here!
Similar in style to the gladiator, anything that ties around to ankle or even up the calf is trending this year.
In contrast to the gladiator styles that buckle these cute summer sandals would be easier to collapse in your luggage. These shoes may not be as comfy to walk around in all day as the ties may dig into your ankle, but would definitely dress up an outfit for a night out without adding heels.
This season’s lace up sandals are reinventing traditional gladiators and making them more wearable and packable, too!
More block heel sandals here!
If you are headed to a resort this spring, low block heels may be a great addition to your travel wardrobe.
Comfy and stylish, these cute summer sandals will add a little polish to your outfits but are still practical. These shoes look and feel effortless, and are more at home poolside than sky-high heels. Block heels are a nice alternative to wedges, which can quickly add weight to your luggage.
Wedges are back and more travel friendly than ever! Check out what’s on our list!
More slide sandals here!
The slide is not strictly a locker room shoe any longer.
In keeping with the “ugly” shoe trend the slide shoe is holding it’s own. I prefer earthy and natural materials to synthetic or plastic styles, but a metallic upper can also look great for a resortwear look.
Don’t be afraid to pair this style with more feminine outfits and skirts. The contrast will definitely make your travel outfits more stylish.

More espadrilles here!
Espadrilles come in so many fun patterns that you can easily infuse color to your travel wardrobe.
They can be comfortable walking shoes for sightseeing and window-shopping, and will keep you feeling and looking cool. I prefer styles with floral or geometric patterns, to spice up my typically neutral clothing palette.

More platform sandals here!
In keeping with the casual, easy to wear trend that has been happening lately, the platform shoe has made a big comeback.
The styles range in sole thickness, but the higher is clearly more of a fashion risk. Also, I find these are more comfortable with an ankle strap to keep your feet secure.
These cute summer sandals for women come in a ton of materials and colors so use your destination as a guide. For example, a woven or braided sole with leather straps would be appropriate for a beachside town.
