Invest now before all the best options are gone (Picture: ASOS/& Other Stories/Zara)
We are just weeks away from summer.
Warm weather and socialising galore are on the cards, meaning our outfit planning instinct has gone into overdrive.
Shorts, dresses and linen shirts all have their place in our warm wardrobes but the summer sandal is the real staple.
Come rain or shine, sandals are worn continuously from May to August. It’s the ease at which they pair with any outfit and the comfort they provide when the temperatures rise.
Plus, they look elegant too.
And now is the time to invest in a pair. By July, the selection depletes and only the forgotten sandals remain.
It’s best to strike while the iron (and new in page) is hot.
So to help, we have chosen seven of the best to buy now from toe-thong flats to workwear suitable heels.
