I know I can't be the only one who plans a whole season of looks around my shoe collection. For that very reason, at the beginning of every season, I take stock of my current collection and then review the It styles of the moment to see how I can refresh or round out what's in my closet. Knowing that warm weather is ahead, I am already beginning to organize my summer shoe plans.

This year, I have my sights set on a range of options that cover everything from minimalist basics to party-ready picks. My focus is primarily on sandals, as you will see below. Ahead, I share five of the stylish shoes everyone will be wearing this season. That said, I have to give an honorable mention to '90s-inspired sneakers (hello, Adidas Samba sneakers!) and studded clogs.

Scroll through to see my top sandal picks of the moment that will get you fashionably through summer and beyond.

1. Flip-Flop Sandals

The flip-flop trend is still going strong, and the sandals come in a variety of cool styles—including sporty pairs like Tylynn Nguyen's above, elevated heeled versions, and many more.


2. Fisherman Sandals

Fisherman sandals are the fashion-forward trend of the moment. Get ready to see the style all over your Instagram feed this spring and summer. Wear a pair with jeans or maxi dresses.


3. Polished Slide Sandals

Sleek slide sandals with special details go a long way in making an outfit look more polished. This versatile sandal style is a great way to dress up even the most casual of looks.


4. Glitzy Party Sandals

This year is all about the glitzy statement sandals that are fit for a party. The options at the moment are endless, with bright colors, embellishments, architectural heels, and other bold details.


5. Barely-There Sandals

The simple, delicate straps of this popular shoe style lean toward more minimalist tendencies, yet the barely-there look feels right at home with a variety of maximalist ensembles (and everything in between).
