Indianapolis Personal Stylist’s Top 10 Shoes of Summer

Espadrilles by Vince Camuto

Both espadrilles above are from Vince Camuto, which is a beautiful shoe brand regardless of style and season. However, Vince sets the bar with its summery fiber soles. Espadrilles go great with shorts or a long flowy skirt.  The Closed-toe Espadrille
Bredenna is a flat shoe that shows off style.  The Open-toe Espadrille Leera Espadrille Wedge Sandal adds a wedge heel for a little extra flair.

Strappy Sandals

Steve Madden’s Strappy sandals creatively combine feminine and fierce in these studded beauties. Perfect flats for traveling. These go well with just about anything in your summer closet from shorts to maxi dresses.

Salt Water Sandal by Hoy Shoes are available in both kids and adult sizes. With more than 500 reviews and five stars, one of the best for summer. These strappy leather sandals are made to get wet. How perfect of a summer shoe is that?

This Indianapolis Personal Stylist can’t get enough of Gladiator Sandals. These Amazon Essentials Women’s Gladiator Flat Sandals are nicely priced with 4.5 stars, the bronze metallic straps make these a versatile pair of sandals, coordinating with dark colors, summery whites or pops of color.


Target is a great source for inexpensive shoes, and in the summer, it’s nice to have a variety of options when it comes to the flat slide. Think slides for the beach or pool, slides that pack well, and slides that keep it cool at all the outdoor activities. With so many pretties available, here are a few of the best, affordable options.

So hard to choose just one when there are so many cute options available. These Two-band slides in blue  are cute and colorful. I love these padded slides in orange, but they are also available in black, tan, and white.  But these bow sandals in yellow would add a sophisticated look to your beachwear.

Most of these sandal recommendations have covered a variety of colors, but no shoe closet is complete without an animal print. These leopard calf hair slide sandals from J. Crew are perfect for taking a walk on the wild side! At the time of writing this, they are 60% off, making them less than $10 so this is one show deal you can’t pass up!

If you love the look of the slide, but want to wear them to work instead of the beach, check out these are the best business casual slides. A 2.5 inch heel give it a nice height without being uncomfortable, and the beautiful leather finish gives it a polished look. Choose from a variety of color options.

Be Beach Ready After an Appoint With Indianapolis Personal Stylist

You may have noticed that flip-flops did not make the list. That is intentional. First, flip flops are not the safest shoe, exposing too much of the foot and the thin foam provides zero support. Second, they offer little in the way of style. Its name is literally derived from the sound it makes when you walk (flip flop, flip flop), which isn’t the most flattering. With so many other shoe options available, why give up precious closet space to a shoe that doesn’t support you.
