HOW TO STYLE SLIDES IN THE SUMMER

If there’s one style of shoe that’s owning my closet right now, it’s slides. Can you tell? There’s not an easier style (except maybe sneakers?), they’re extremely chic, and they’re on-trend to wear with pretty much anything. Not to mention exceptionally comfortable and simple to throw on. Here are a few ways I’m styling them around summer outfits:

1. DENIM SHORTS 

I live in cut-off jean shorts over summer and luckily slides mesh well with them. I’ve basically replaced wearing shorts and booties every day to shorts and slides instead. I especially like pairing denim shorts with a nude pair of slides to elongate my legs.

 

2. DRESSES

Again, a summer staple. I’m not always a sandals person, especially when walking around the city, so slides are my go-to with dresses. They instantly add an effortless French girl vibe to even ultra-feminine dresses or skirts. Mini to floor length works, but my personal favorite is a midi hem + slides.

3. CROPPED PANTS

Slides are cool with the cropped trend because they don’t cut your ankle off like other shoe styles that are trending (ankle heels, strappy sandals, moto boots). I’m into a monochrome look of black cropped jeans with black slides, and pretty much any pair of slides meshes well with cropped denim.

    Love the way you have styled all these options. I’ve also been living in slides all summer. You linked the baby size of the Celine sunnies, is that the actual size you are wearing? I love the oversized look of them and sadly no place in my city to try them on. Need to replace my scratched up Audreys asap 🙂

      Thank you so much! They are not the baby’s, they’re the full size Marta’s, sorry about that! They’re my fav 🙂

    Really like the Stuart Weitzman model you shared Jill, and man you know how to rock slides in summer. I love the shorts+slide combo, especially when my legs are tanned, which is not the case this year 🙁 Wishing you a lovely week ahead, dear
