The temperature is rising and the clothing count is on the decline—wearing less of it, that is—so it’s time to polish those nails and pull out your best and brightest summertime sandals and shoes. Designer Marc Jacobs always has his finger on the pulse of women’s fashion, and footwear is no exception. That’s why we’ve chosen him as our featured designer for this post.
We’ve got all of the latest styles from his Marc by Marc Jacobs line, like wedges, espadrilles, glad iators and more, thanks to the vast selection found on Lyst, so let’s get started!
Wedges made the InStyle favourite summer sandals list, where actress Naomi Watts said that if she’s going to wear high shoes by day, they’d better be comfortable. We say amen to that, sister!
The neutral brown and tan leather sandals with diamond detail cutouts are the perfect versatile pairing for so many of your summer outfits.
From dresses to capris, the added height will make your legs look like they go on for days.
Espadrilles are all the rage this season and these unique platform kicks just had to make our list.
The pink-and-cream stripe canvas and rope wedge espadrilles combine the best of both worlds—feminine summer textures and colours with the comfort and look of a slightly more athletic shoe. Wear these with jean shorts, a flowy top, and your favourite flower crown for a sweet bohemian outfit that’s perfect for a sunset stroll on the boardwalk.
The gladiator is the sandal to buy for summer, claims Harper’s Bazaar. And while we would much rather prefer to buy several pairs of shoes, as opposed to just one, it’s easy to see why the magazine would place so much faith in this particular style.
The black gladiators are probably the most adaptable pair on this list. From dresses to jeans to rompers, these stylish strappy sandals will carry you through the sweltering days of summer.
Everyone needs a pair of casual slides to slip on when you’re quickly heading out the door, and these yellow thongs sandals (which come in a variety of colours, by the way) are the best option for adding a pop of colour and sweet feminine vibes to any summer outfit.
The shiny patent strap with bow detail provides interest while remaining totally practical and versatile.
For those times when you need something a little dressier—whether having a date night, attending a wedding, or heading out for cocktails—these beautiful pastel hued sandals are an excellent choice. The multicolour metallic rose print sandal will add instant glamour to any outfit. These would look especially stunning with a monochromatic ensemble, like white from head-to-toe, but they would look equally as elegant with a pair of jeans or a flowing maxi dress.
