How to Dress Up Your Thongs: Making Sandals Look Chic

17 May 2018

Let's be real, we love a good pair of heels. We love how they elongate our legs and can give our height some oomph. However, we do not love the heel hangover. We all know the next day leg and foot pain of wearing heels or wedges for longer than a few hours, and it is not great. We at Estilistas have found the perfect way to make wearing Sandals chic. We love a comfortable but still fashionable sandal, that can dress up any outfit-without the heel hangover. Here is your rulebook for chic summer sandals, worthy of any occasion.

1. Platforms are more than your mother's shoe. They are back from the dead and all of our ankles are excited. We love the platform for the added height while still keeping our calves comfy!

These Moschino platform sandals with cute heart embellishments are quirky and perfect for summer brunch and a walk in the park!. These can easily be cleaned when you spill the second ice cream cone you just had to have.


2. Sandals aren't just for outside. We love a good work sandal and for a more office appropriate look, these Maje strappy sandals are just the thing! They are on-trend with the pointed toe but they are still breathable and comfortable. We love the bold red color that could easily be paired with jeans and a white t-shirt or blazer for work.



Or try these Geox snakeskin sandals that will make your boss jealous. They come in both tan and black and are breezy for those humid office cubicles while still being fashion forward. We love the slight lift in the heel and versatility of the style.

3. Glam! Upgrade your summer style with some serious bling. Take them from the pool to the wedding you don't want to go to and without the uncomfortable feet. The sparkle will distract from your old pedicure and still make you look on-trend.

While we normally can't justify the price, we love these Dolce and Gabbana rubber sandals with embellishments. They are the perfect casual summer piece while still keeping it extra. Who said couldn't wear crystals at the pool? But if you want glam on the cheap, consider these Carvela sandals that exude class without the flashy price tag.
