Let's take a break from my Berlin Fashion Week posts, shall we? This week is not only the beginning of my summer break (after all I'm officially still a student) but apparently also the beginning of the good weather in Luxembourg. So it's high time to finally take out the lovely summer shoes I've been gathering up since early spring. Some of these pairs are from last summer or even the summer before, but I still love to wear them every year. So let's have a look at why I consider these different shoes as summer must haves, and where you can shop your own pairs.
SCOTCH & SODA patch slip ons
These shoes were pretty successful on my Instagram account, which is totally understandable as they are the statement shoes par excellence this summer. Basically you can't go wrong with any patch item this year, and if you choose a solid shoe such as slip ons, you will probably benefit from them for many seasons. If you're on a budget then don't forget to give my DIY patch loafers a try!
KIOMI pointed flats
I still remember that I hated pointed shoes when I was younger as I found them so tacky. By now I think that every shoe is better with pointed tips, especially this kind of flats which replaced our good old ballet flats. Make sure to choose a pair with open sides as they have a super high coolness factor.
ASOS strap sandals
I think strap sandals have long replaced pumps as the classic women's shoe for every occasion. Whether you prefer them with a high or low, with a bold or tiny heel, they give every outfit an instant elegance upgrade.
MANGO lace up sandals
The lace up trend is far from being over this season and it has invaded about every shoe model you could imagine. However the look is still most playful on cute sandals (with many colourful pompoms!).
H&M granny pumps
The granny shoes are one of these trends which you either hate or love. However I think that these ballet pumps are the perfect compromise for girls who can't wear high heels or who still aren't over the disappearance of ballet flats.
Don't ask me why but I never liked espadrilles, especially flat ones. To me they always looked super boring and mostly also quite ugly. However they have long found their way into the collections of renowned labels such as Tory Burch or Chanel. How good that I finally got my own pair of espadrilles at the FashionBloggerCafé in Berlin. I chose this super cool denim style pair to match all my blue and white outfits. The espadrilles are definitely the most comfy shoes from my list so I will be wearing them over and over again this summer.
