Summer is in full swing and we couldn't be happier to have our toes out all day every day (pedicured please). This season we are slightly ditching our sandals and are seriously obsessing over the slide sandal.
Since last year they have become pretty major and in stores practically every other sandal on the shelf is a slider. (Winning.) If you're not usually familar with the slide, we are well beyond the classic 'pool slide' you only bring out when on holiday (even though we actually still love the Adidas rubber slider).
We're now talking leather, fluffy, embellished, and satin slides; meaning they can be worn to any occasion and we're thrilled. You may be thinking slider sandals to work? Really? But yes, you can. Opt for a smarter pair so something in black leather is great or in satin, which No. 21 have done so well with a knotted top that looks super chic. Alternatively, Zara have a pointed closed toe slide sandal in black leather with a bowed top — these too look really smart with a straight leg trouser or culotte.
If you are, like me, not a fan of wearing heels on a night out and avoid like the plague then you will be thrilled with the snazzy embellished options. Miu Miu have (of course) beautifully created a satin slide with an embellished buckle which will instantly bring a pair of jeans to life when worn with a glam top for the evening. If these are a little out your budget then Kurt Geiger have the perfect alternative.
What's our favourite? It's a tough one but we can't get enough of the Puma x Rihanna pink fluffy 'Fenty' Slide which has just launched this week — make sure you grab a pair quick as they usually sell out that same day.
