Spring is finally in full swing! I’m partnering with DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse to share three outfits highlighting one of my favorite shoe trends for the season: the minimalist sandal. I love the clean, barely-there look of this style for wearing simply with jeans or dressed up as part of special occasion outfits. I combed through their large selection online and tried on a number of different styles – the three in today’s post are each lightweight and comfortable, plus available in small sizes starting at 5 or 5.5 (I found them all to fit true to size). As a bonus, they each also happen to be under $60!
Minimalist doesn’t necessarily mean subtle – here’s an example of the style in a bold, vibrant color! These are faux suede, and are at a good price point for a fun statement piece. I can see these styled with a colorful outfit, or with a muted white/neutral one that lets the shoes speak for themselves. I wanted to show it with just a casual pairing consisting of a button-down shirt and jeans, with the sandals as the accent piece.
The nude sandal is a closet MVP. I wear my strappy sky-high ones quite a bit, and these are a more manageable variation with a moderate 3″ heel and wider front band (which I find in general to be more comfortable than narrow front straps). These are faux leather with a smooth, matte finish.
Since wedding season is coming up, I also wanted to share these blue suede sandals with a comfortable block heel. If you’re going to be on your feet for a while and want to survive in heels for as long as possible, definitely go the more stable block heel route vs skinny stiletto. These are genuine suede, and the color is a beautiful soft powder blue.
Thank you to DSW for partnering on this post. Which look here was your favorite?
