I like to consider myself a shopping expert because I spend all day managing fashion circle and hunt for the best of the best. So my friends and family often come to me when they have questions about shopping, because they know I’ll immediately have some suggestions. Recently someone asked me what would be the best summer dress shoes? For a second, I stopped and thought, that’s really hard. You’ll want something that’s light, airy, comfortable, functional, and also stylish enough to pair with everything else in your wardrobe. So I went on a quest to find out which pairs tick all these boxes.
I scoured all of my favorite retailers and curated a list of my favorites for hot days, long commutes, and more. From comfortable apartment arrive high heels with straps, you’re sure to love at least one (or five!) pairs ahead. The best part is that they are all so versatile, you can wear them even after leaving the office. Keep scrolling to shop and find sets you’ll be wearing all season.
