Some have already booked their get-away summer holiday to a sun soaked location, others are still waiting for spring so they can finally put their winter wardrobes to rest and face the sunshine in style. The question on all our minds is: what shoes do I wear this spring/summer? To answer this question the lovely Swati Mehrotra, designer from Indian shoe brand Swati Modo has shared her knowledge with us. There is a shoe for every occasion, from a night out clubbing with your friends to a romantic outdoor dinner with your beau.
Club night with friends
Whether you are out with your friends at one of the hottest clubs in sunny Barcelona, or living it up clubbing at a luxurious Dubai venue, stilettos are the way to go. Team up hot pink stiletto pumps with a sexy bodycon dress.
Just imagine, you are soaking up the sun at the beach, summer cocktail in hand, wearing a flowy kaftan with a bathing suit or bikini. Best footwear for the beach are cute flip flops. Opt for cool blue flip flops, maybe with flowers or cute cherries on the strap.
Walk in the park
A stroll in the park asks for comfy fitflops for good support.
If you have a lunch date with a man and want to look your best. Go for peep toe sandals with kitten heels in soft colors.
Terrace drinks with your best friend
Sharing the latest gossip with your best friend while sipping cold lemonades at a terrace in the city. These moments ask for cute wedge sandals in nice floral prints.
Romantic outdoor dinner
It is warm outside and you have a romantic outdoor dinner planned with your boyfriend. Impress your other half with sexy black, gold or red pumps. Higher the heel better the look!
Camera in hand, you are on full tourist mode. You would want to wear something fashionable but don’t want to end up with painful feet by the end of the day. Go for ballerinas, feminine and comfy at the same time.
Tips and trends
Which colors are hot this summer?
This summer flaunt all soft pastel colors.
Which tips should we follow this summer?
Wear breathable shoes to make your feet feel fresh and cool. This season avoid tanning, wash your feet often and apply SPF at regular intervals. Your feet are locked away over winter, so when they’re exposed to the sun, always apply a sunscreen to the top and soles of your feet to avoid sunburn. Reapply after walking with bare feet or swimming.
What type of shoes are summer must-haves?
Choose footwear made of natural materials to help your feet to breathe. This helps prevent feet from smelling and sweating in the heat. Our feet are exposed more than ever during the summer. We want them to look great in revealing summer shoes, but many of us don’t realize how important it is to take good care of them.
