Summer calls for iced coffee, berry popsicles and listening to music on your hammock. It’s a time of reminiscing, of remembering every summer in grade school where you spent late nights playing in the park, catching fireflies. Summer conjures up a magical feeling of when time stops and you can truly enjoy life. Although summer vacation may be a figment of our imagination (or may be close approaching to being a figment of our imagination), our fashion choices can still be reflective of a time when we so effortlessly wore what we wanted and pulled it off. Chunky sandals have a very strong 90s vibes; thick stacked soles and Velcro straps call upon the days when Justin Timberlake was in a boy band and Britney Spears reigned supreme. Chunky stark white or midnight black sandals are the perfect accessory for summer because they have such an effortless and playful feel to them, while still managing to look grown up and chic. Pair a big, clunky sandal with some vintage shorts, a crop top and a kimono and you have an easy, breezy and comfortable summer look. Delicate pieces look ace with a thick shoe and the contrast works wonders for an interesting and dynamic outfit. Wear a light airy skirt with a tank top and big hat and you’ve got yet another style to rock your sandals. You can even wear lacey socks with these sandals! Just make sure you don’t rock them off.
