This weekend's sweltering heat (with little end in sight) means your feet are like ours: sweaty, hot, and ready for some relief. Much as we love our cute flats and sky-high pumps, when it hits 95 degrees, all bets are off. The floaty dresses, casual tees, and cotton skirts in our closet are begging to be worn with open toes. If the ubiquitous gladiator isn’t your speed and flip-flops are bit too casual, we’ve found some summer styles that will take you from brunch to beach to, yes, the office. The best part? They’re all under $100.
Steve Madden Sirprise
We love the bright-purple shade and python detailing, which add some higher-end finishes to this thong. Die-hard flip-flop lovers: Consider this an upgrade.
Old Navy Rope T-Strap Sandals
The nautical trend keeps going and going … and at this price, you can stock up on every color. You may not actually yacht, but you can fake it.
Jeffrey Campbell Maya Sandal
The triple-strap detailing and platform heel scream Parisian chic when paired a body conscious dress or mini.
Dolce Vita Aegean
These are about as minimal as you can get without actually walking barefoot on city sidewalks. And the silver patent will go nicely with a mid-summer tan (or, you know, an early June faux-tan).
Matiko Ivana Wrap Sandal
Let your inner hippie out! Skip the Birks this summer (and, um, this decade) and instead slip into these braided flats.
Toughen up your summer wardrobe without having to resort to the dreaded gladiator. The patent-leather and zipper detailing scream biker, but the heel and crisscross straps are all femme.
Gap European Editions Ankle-Strap Flats
Brown leather sandals are a closet basic, but the little bit of blue patent adds a perfect little accent. Flair, people, flair!
Berdy by Lauren by Ralph Lauren
Don't just do plain metallics this summer: Marry the trend with a vibrant color, like these strappy wedges. The result? Your favorite new evening shoe. —Diana Tsui
