4 Shoe Trends Every Fashion Girl Will Own This Summer

The new arrivals section is always a place that I look to for inspiration about which pieces to add to my wardrobe, but no item speaks to me as much as the shoe section. Much like our favorite style icon, Carrie Bradshaw, I believe in the power of a great shoe, and the collection in my closet will speak to that. With that in mind, you can count on me to always have an eye on the best new shoe arrivals, which, right now, are heavily leaning into summer styles I’m ready to add to my vacation wardrobe.

Ahead, I’m breaking down the best shoes that have recently dropped at retailers. From strappy sandals to barely-there flats to nouveau flip-flops and more, these are the shoes you’ll spot fashion insiders—and our editors—adding to their closets now. Go on to shop my picks that tap into the biggest trends of the moment that will continue all summer long.

Strappy Heels

Jacquemus is the label fashion insiders can't resist.

Barely There Flats

Barely there flats will be one of the biggest trends this summer with newcomer Studio Amelia at the top of the must-buy list.

I spotted A.Emery on the runway during Australian fashion week and immediately added them to my summer shopping list.

Mango just debuted its affordable take on the strappy flat.

Nouveau Flip-Flops

Simon Miller is always in the closets of fashion girls.

Square-Toe Shoes

These Bottega Veneta are available for pre-order (for delivery in October) and will be a cult buy among fashion insiders.

A square toe and strappy sandal all in one.
