Your Ultimate Sandal Guide to See You Through Summer's Hottest Month

Summer might be almost over, but the heat won’t be giving up that easily. February is summer’s hottest month, which means as we move into March, it’s still warm enough to get a little more wear out of sandals, until it’s truly boot weather.

Flat shoes just won’t stop trending (and we're not complaining), so it’s a good idea to keep adding to your collection. And the best news? The local collections are all starting to go on sale to make way for autumn, and the international summer collections are trickling through now, which means you can take your pick of the freshest designs.

Keep scrolling to discover the three key styles we think are perfect for right now, and to wear in autumn. How will we be styling them when the weather cools? With cropped jeans or knitted midi skirts.

Rubber soles are not to be reserved for pool-side only. When worn correctly, they're the epitome of chic in 2016. The key is to keep the rest of your look elevated (think: a sleek skirt and crisp cotton shirt), and not actually wear them pool-side. 

We've all worn lace-ups by now, but take the next gen for a spin—perspex , snakeskin, fringing, a high back or an interesting shape. 

Our team has basically made these our uniform, with one editor (me) promising to wear them throughout the whole year (no matter what the temps might be). Why? They make every outfit look at least 10x cooler.
