Must-Have #1: Barely-There Sandals
We love a super flat sandal that essentially makes your foot look bare. Choose one with a natural leather sole and either metallic or neutral skinny straps. This allows a flowy skirt be the star of your look and a slouchy trouser feel cool and casual. A fresh, bright manicure is the perfect finishing touch.
Must-Have #2: Gladiators
When your look needs a heavier sandal, then gladiators are the perfect choice. Choose one that hits above the ankle or just below the knee, and preferably in nude, black, or gold. Style them with short sundresses or denim shorts for your next daytime outing.
