Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.
It feels like forever ago that I put any real thought or effort into my daily footwear selection. I’ve been exclusively wearing house slippers (or to be real, mostly socks) since mid-March and very occasionally swapping in exercise sneakers for a quick at-home workout. Don’t get me wrong: Slippers are about as comfortable as it gets when it comes to shoes, and I'm definitely not complaining. I just also find myself gravitating toward my closet more frequently than I'd like to admit, dreaming about the time I'll get to wear all of my favorite heels, sandals, and flats again. I've lived in sunny Los Angeles my entire life, after all, so spring and summer shoes are naturally my go-tos.
I've been a sucker for a great pair of shoes for as long as I can remember. (I credit my mom for the fixation.) It's also what I choose when I'm looking to splurge on something special because I get so much use out of them. This may be slightly embarrassing to admit, but I used to frequently post "shoefies" on Instagram—as seen above—so you know my dedication is real. (Side note: Should I bring them back?) I may not be able to wear my favorites outside of the house for at least several more weeks but as soon as it's safe to do so, expect to find me in one of these 25 gorgeous spring pairs.
These sandals make me feel like I’m on vacation! I bought a similar pair last summer and have worn them with everything from denim cutoffs to floral dresses and skirts.
As you may notice throughout this roundup, I am a very big fan of lace-up sandals for spring and summer. I love this version from Madewell.
The perfect white mule doesn’t ex… oh, nevermind. This pair from Schutz comes pretty close to perfection and will be something you can wear over and over again.
No spring or summer wardrobe is complete without a good pair of flip-flops. This one from H&M looks so luxe for the price point I can hardly contain my excitement.
While I was growing up, my mom had a very extensive Superga collection (basically a pair in every color!). I love the classic white but included the navy here because I think it’s a bit unique.
A good croc-effect accessory is an easy way to add some interest and excitement to any look. These Staud slides are such a chic and polished way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe.
Another good mule for your arsenal, this time in a cool blue shade that will add some excitement to your outfit.
Easy-breezy slides to wear all through spring and summer. Consider these your weekend go-tos.
ICYMI: Our new Who What Wear shoe collection has some really chic and versatile styles at a very accessible price point. This pair is one of my favorites.
These sleek strappy sandals are another of my lace-up favorites. The wine hue just takes them to another level and gives them a unique twist.
I love the minimalist feel of these sandals mixed with the bold snake-embossed leather. The kitten heel also makes this pair incredibly easy to wear.
I still love a good ballet flat, and Mansur’s iteration is one of the best out there. This yellow color is so on point for the season.
It's never a bad idea to add dressier strappy sandals to your closet. This one from Raye is a cool and affordable option!
The perfect simple sandals for everyday wear. The slight croc effect makes them all the more chic.
Can’t go wrong with a nude sandal. This pair is simple, on trend, and affordable.
Another great pick from the Who What Wear collection. I love these slides, especially in the pinkish-purple hue.
A comfy and cute summer slide, perfect for pool or errand days.
An elevated pair of slides with a fun embellishment detail. I’d wear these with my favorite Levi’s boyfriend jeans and a simple tee to jazz up the look.
My kind of party shoes. Even my cocktail and evening style tends to be on the minimal side, so I like to pair my looks with bolder (and more sparkly) accessories like these sandals.
I don’t generally love anything too stereotypically girly, but these sandals caught my eye. I love the embellished heel.
I'm very into these chunkier Marni sandals. I tend to update my go-to black sandals every few years because I get so much use out of them. I love the ankle strap and gold buckle on this pair.
More lace-up sandals, this time with little block heels. You’ll see me wearing them with a leather miniskirt and denim jacket.
I’ve been a huge fan of The Row since the brand launched (and a huge fan of the Olsens since birth). These sandals are such a great representation of what they do best: minimal, luxe, and wearable pieces that go with anything.
Wedges are back (don’t @ me), and while I was hesitant about wearing the trend before, I really love this eye-catching pair.
A very cool, very trendy pair of Bottega Veneta shoes. I love the new-season addition of the gold ankle chain—heel and anklet in one!
