A great summer shoe has to be a few different things. First of all, it’s got to feel like summer. Whether it’s the design, materials, color or all three, a summer shoe needs to look and feel summery.
Second, they’ve got to be easy. Summer isn’t the season for over-the-top outfits that require a lot of thought. The quicker you can get your look together, the more time you get to sip a cocktail on a patio somewhere!
Finally, they’ve got to be comfortable. During the summer, most of us are more active. When you’re out and about, you need a shoe that keeps up with you and feels good all day long.
The Lia Nude
We’ll go ahead and say it: our new summer collection hits all the marks. We’re so excited to share the new looks, along with some ideas for styling these beauties.
A simple, beautifully designed slide works for so many different occasions. Our Lia sandal is super versatile, we think you’ll find it looks great with just about everything in your closet. From dresses to jeans and a tee, to rompers and beyond, Lia elevates your look.
One of our favorite summer looks is pairing a flowy sundress with Lia in nude or honey. Maxi dresses are a summertime staple because they’re chic, easy and flattering to everyone. Whether in a solid color or a subtle print, they’re perfect for daytime shopping or al fresco dinners.
Summer frock + easy slides = quintessential summer.
The Canasto Silver/Baby Blue
Don’t pack away your denim just because it’s summer. In a lighter weight and wash, it always looks fresh. The Canasto in Silver pairs beautifully with denim, whether a distressed skinny jean or this summer’s wide-cropped cut.
And chambray is one of those fabrics that just says “summer casual.” We love a loose chambray top with jeans, like Nini wears here. Canasto would work just as well with a white jean or flowy linen pants. They also give shorts and rompers an upgrade.
We don’t really believe in rules for summer outfits. But as a general guideline, remember that flowy tops look best with a more snug fit on the bottom, and vice versa. However you wear it, we predict the Canasto will be an effortless closet favorite, all season long.
The Canasto Cold
The Canasto also comes in Gold. When paired with even the simplest summer dress, this slightly elevated slide is an outfit-maker. For daytime, we love it with a boxy bag in white or another neutral.
To style Canasto after dark, slip into a jumpsuit or rock some modern palazzo pants in a luxe fabric. Swap out your day bag for a fun clutch, add a swish of bright lip color and a pair of chunky gold hoops and you’re ready to go all night.
With any of the styles from our summer collection, we recommend keeping accessories and makeup low effort and uncomplicated. Remember: simpler is always better.
