The former Nordstrom buyer and style expert our readers simply can't get enough of, Susie Wright, is back at it again. We've chatted with Wright about seemingly everything under the sun style-wise at this point, from the details on her latest closet cleanout to her best wardrobe basics of all time. And now, with summer on everyone's minds, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to pick her brain about the summer shoe trends she's prioritizing for a chic wardrobe this year.

Since Wright is a professional shopper with a lot of Nordstrom expertise, and since Nordstrom is one of our favorite shopping destinations, it would be silly if we passed on the opportunity to highlight how she would shop for shoes there this season. Sure, we may have our own thoughts on the best Nordstrom sandals for summer, but we thought you might be interested in learning about the styles Wright believes are tried-and-true wardrobe heroes, too.

With that, continue on to see the six summer shoe trends she's personally backing and shop the coordinating styles, complete with Wright's own styling ideas.

Elevated Flip-Flops

"Elevated flip-flops are so chic, and I recommend this style to all my clients and friends. It might be the most versatile summer shoe to own."

Heeled Mules

"Slide sandals are another go-with-everything shoe, and ones with a flared heel are even cooler! I wear this style with every summer dress, but it works just as easily with faded denim."

Simple Slides

"Flat sandals are a summer staple, and I prefer simple strappy styles. Even better if it has a square toe—it's the trend to try this summer."
