Flat Strappy Sandals

Celebrities like Richie were drawn to minimal, strappy styles this summer because they make for a sleek finish to everything from trousers to shorts.


Elevated Flip-Flops

On Kendall Jenner: Ami Paris Dress; Tropic of C Bikini; Bottega Veneta Arco Raffia Tote; The Row Beach Flip Flop

Flip-flops are the epitome of classic summer sandals, but instead of the rubber thongs that might come to mind, celebs like Kendall Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence are into elevated leather versions. In fact, they both own the same flat pair from The Row.

On Laura Harrier: Matteau dress; Saint Laurent bag and sunglasses

While not necessarily a trendy pick, crossover sandals are ultimately too timeless to be deemed "in" or "out," something Laura Harrier knows. While in Cannes, we spotted the actress wearing a pair in a very French way with a slip dress and sweater draped over her shoulders.


Fisherman Sandals

On Hailey Bieber: The Row Fisherman Sandals ($1090)

Fisherman sandals are popping up again this summer, especially in the wardrobes of our favorite minimalist style stars. Hailey Bieber, for one, has worn her pair multiple times all over New York City with denim shorts and a tee.


Gladiator Sandals

On Sofia Richie: Prada dress and Raffia Tote Bag ($1950); The Row sandals; Celine Rectangular Sunglasses ($390)

Leave it to Richie to bring back a sandal style we haven't thought about in years: gladiator sandals. While on her honeymoon, Richie wore a pair of strappy, ankle-tie sandals in the chicest way. It instantly made us question why we ever overlooked the style in the past.


Double-Strap Sandals

On Jennifer Lawrence: Leset Margo Tee ($68) and Yoko Cargo Pants ($220); The Row bag and sandals

Jennifer Lawrence is the poster girl for simple summer style, so when she finished off her off-duty outfit of a white tee, linen pants, and a pair of two-strap sandals, we took note.

On Katie Holmes: Birkenstock 1774 Arizona Ramses Sandals ($470)

It speaks volumes that celebs like Katie Holmes pick a mainstay like Birkenstocks when they can opt for designer footwear. Her comfortable Arizona slides are a classic that pairs flawlessly with all her low-key looks.
