Fashionista NOW: Eye-Catching Statement Sandals Fashion Inspiration

Shine the spotlight on your feet by slipping them into statement sandals this summer. Scour our favorite summer sandals to transform the most neutral of wardrobes.

Sandal season is here and your feet are begging to be let out to play under the sun. Leave the socks for when you’re wearing shoes because here in Malaysia, there is no such thing as wearing sandals with socks when it’s close to 40 degree Celsius outside.

While chunky 90s sandals, tall gladiator sandals and birkenstocks have their place in your wardrobe, don’t limit yourself to just these.

There is a myriad of sandal styles so very summer-worthy to covet. Aside from the classic nude or neutral-hued sandals that are always considered the first choice and a smart investment, be adventurous and pick ones that come in colors, tassels, fringes, stones, beads and lace and other decorative features that will highlight your feet this summer.

Mind Over Feet

For those afflicted with a love-and-hate relationship with their feet, we recommend only sporting bold sandals on your good feet days. For folks who experience intense pain at the sight of their feet and have a deep-seated need to swap their feet with somebody else’s, don’t we all understand the pain and know that it too shall pass.

As for the rest who are convinced that their feet are awesome and must be flaunted, sporting the most attention-seeking sandals will definitely be one of the life’s little pleasures.

How To Wear Statement Sandals?

A pair of statement sandals can uplift the simplest of outfits. And if you are the type of laid-back dresser with a penchant for monotonous ensembles, saying yes to styling it up with a pair eye-popping sandals this season is inevitable.
