With spring so close we can practically taste it, we're packing away our boots and taking our sandals off the bench. It's time for pedicures, open toes, and minimal straps to take over. However, in warmer weather, we typically want to spend less energy on outfit planning and more on having fun—anything too fussy or overly complicated is simply not worth it when the weather is nice and there are sunny days to be enjoyed. You want to be able to just slip on your favorite sandals, add a few key clothing items, and head out the door. 

To simplify your warm-weather outfits, we thought now would be the perfect time to highlight a few cute outfit ideas to wear with your favorite sandals. The looks below are not only chic but also beyond easy to put together, only requiring a few pieces outside of your sandals of choice. From slip skirts to minidresses to matching sets, here are 10 easy outfits with sandals to try this season.

While the blazer may not always be an option when temperatures really rise, the shorts-and-T-shirt combo is chic nonetheless. The sporty sandals give the otherwise classic look a modern update.
