Welcome to #WhoWhatWearing, a series in which we highlight you, our stylish community of readers. Each of the following looks came straight from a photo you tagged us in on Instagram. Want to be featured next time? You guessed it: Use #WhoWhatWearing on the outfit posts you want us to see.

Personal truth: I'm a creature of habit. Once I find something I like, I tend to continue to gravitate toward it over and over again without realizing. This rings especially true for my Instagram saved collections—I find myself repeatedly saving the same pieces from multiple accounts. The saddest part is I don't even notice I do this until I take a look back at my recent saved posts and they all look eerily alike.

I noticed this phenomenon happening with all of my latest shoe photos. Each one of my many saves features the same five summer shoe trends, which tells me that I'm really into them, and they're everywhere. From strappy '90s sandals to nouveau flip-flops, below are five of summer 2019's biggest shoe trends. Keep scrolling to see my favorite posts and shop these trends for yourself.


This year's most flattering shoe trend is still going strong. Nicknamed the "floss heel", these strappy sandals give a nod to the '90s with barely there details. They pair well with everything, and as an added bonus, make your legs look instantly longer. 

Literally everyone in the Who What Wear office owns these already. 

Snake print isn't going away anytime soon. 

I actually already own these and let me tell you, they're a magnet for compliments. 


Blame Chanel, but summer 2019 is all about slides. Not only are these the most comfortable sandal style, they also go with virtually any outfit combination you can think of. 

I also own these and wear them at a minimum of once a week.


Sandals with unique toe detailing are all over the internet right now—and are actually surprisingly comfortable. I love the way this style pairs with skirts and dresses for summer. 

These are on pre-order right now, and you better believe my name is currently on that list. 

Leave it to Zimmermann to make this controversial trend look ultra-chic. 


Heeled flip-flops are a thing, people! Don't hate the messenger but this is one polarizing trend I'll admit I'm super into. When it's paired with vintage denim, I really can't think of anything else I'd rather wear right now. 

This slanted heel makes them feel directional. 

These feel so '90s—in the best way.


The sneaker trend is still going strong (I mean, was it ever not?), and fashion people are pairing them with everything from dresses to pantsuits to midi skirts right now. 

You can never go wrong with classic white. 

Instagram's favorite sneaker is still going strong.
