Spring has fully sprung, and with it comes the promise of more outdoor dining, the sweet smell of night-blooming jasmine all over Los Angeles, and more excuses to wear actual, real sandals outside (we're currently that Jonah Hill gif, if you're looking for a visual touchpoint). In shopping for our own summer slides, we noticed so many trends—hand-painted florals, pastel snakeskin, quilted straps—that we couldn't help but round up them and share a few selections with you. Here are 18 of our favorite sandals to put a spring in your step this season:
Castañer Embroidered Platforms ($485): It's the embroidered daisies on the '70s-inspired platforms for us.
Alepel Citrus Sandals ($195): The hand-painted sandals that inspired this post.
Loeffler Randall Floral Print Sandal ($250): Their classic shape, in a pastel floral print.
Camper Meda Sandal ($150): From summer brunch to early fall weddings.
Target Skinny Strap Sandals ($14): Dainty straps in a pretty green.
Zara Square Toe Violet Heels ($49): Part of your spring "cool girl" uniform.
Treasure and Bond Sandal ($60): Canary yellow in a classic silhouette.
Tory Burch Ankle Strap Sandal ($298): The dark olive green looks great dressed up or down. (Leslie's pipe dream sandals!)
Target Woven Padded Sandals ($19): In a fresh and summery bright white.
Teva Light Blue Sandals ($50): Teva's have come a long way from their Grand Canyon river guide origins, and this pretty subtle blue color-blocking is a perfect example of that. (These are a favorite of Kelly's!)
Suzanne Rae Velcro Sandal ($350): The slight evergreen sheen and platform feels nostalgic in the best way possible.
Birkenstock Forager Slides ($450): A huge splurge, but mark our words: These will be ev 👏 ery 👏 where 👏 this summer.
Universal Thread Snakeskin Slides ($19): A simple, Hermes-inspired take on snakeskin (and a killer deal).
Madewell Calf Hair Slide ($110): Calf hair is basically a neutral at this point.
Dolce Vita Snakeskin Sandals ($90): Snakeskin goes baby blue.
