Winter boots, it’s time to say ‘Goodbye’ – we’ve had a good run of it, but as we head into the summer season some fresh and chic footwear is now needed update our shoe closet. We have put together the top 10 summer shoes that every woman needs. From casual flats to some kick ass heels – get that pedi booked in and take a look at the fab selection we have for you below.

Summer Shoe # 1: The Pool Slider

Yes it might remind us of our Dad in the 80s, but we recommend you upgrade to the versatile pool sliders this summer. A favourite of Celebs and Bloggers, the pool slider works well with jeans and tee or a simple top and skirt combo. We suggest a white or black pair for the sleekest look, or try a metallic to take your look to new heights.

With the new slicker version of the slip on sandal taking the high street by storm you can achieve chic comfort from brands like ASOS, Office and Dorothy Perkins.

Summer Shoe #6: The Summer Boot

So we have now resigned our winter boots to back of the closet but make sure you have room for a perfect pair of summer boots. Cut outs and peep toe take this wardrobe staple into summer. We advise teaming with a pair of frayed jeans for the ultimate on trend look.

From a lower heel for day wear to sky high for the evening this look is a must and gives an edge to any outfit.

Summer Shoe #8: The Mule

In recent times we have seen a strong nod to the 90s, especially in music and fashion (All Saints come back and choker necklaces anyone?) A slightly unexpected footwear trend to hit the high street is the mule. And we are totally on board, when styled correctly this statement shoe is super chic in both flat or heel form.

Summer Shoe #9: The Wedge

We have spied some excellent wedges across the internet. This is the shoe to wear if you don’t normally don a pair of heels – the Wedge gives you a  comfortable base, whilst a platform at the front gives you added height. Bingo.

We invested in a pair of rattan wedges with a fabric tie around the ankle the moment we saw Chung rocking a pair in 2014. Wedges are the ultimate summer look paired with a set of tanned pins!
