When it comes to any type of fashion item (whether it's clothing, swimwear, bags, or shoes), there's a fine line between something feeling underwhelmingly basic and overly trendy that's often hard to get close to, let alone touch on. Luckily, as your own personal shoppers, here at Who What Wear, we're kind of experts at it—and our namesake clothing and accessory collections reflect it, too.

That's why—with relative ease—today I'm able to bring you a whopping twenty-five summer footwear options (including flat sandals, heels, and mules)—all of which not only hit on that perfect in-between mark of trendy but not too trendy. They also happen to cost under $100, too. In short, you can pick up a new pair for this season sans guilt, knowing you won't get sick of it by the time next summer rolls around. To see and shop all the pretty styles for yourself, just keep scrolling.

Next, I'm a picky shopper and this is what I'd buy from Nordstrom for summer.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
