We’re a little over two months away from the first day of summer, and praise fucking be considering the weather we’ve been having. If you’re anything like me when it comes to procrastination, then you’ve most likely done your spring cleaning already. Assuming you’ve emptied out your closet and cleaned out your dresser, you’ve miraculously paved the way for new and better shit to take up more room this summer. There’s no better motivation to look your absolute best come bikini bod szn than shopping for sexy rompers, skin-tight bodycons, and of fucking course, brand new summer heels. From non-fugly mules and cut-out booties, this summer’s shoe trends don’t look so hideous. For once. Here are a few summer heels you can go from day to night drinking in.
More often than not, mules are fucking disgusting. It’s true, they’re most likely worn by the Patricias in your office. Of all the ridiculous trends so far, this year’s summer shoes seem to have one thing in common: comfort. That being said, don’t wear regular mules. Wear like, ~cool~ styles like ones with a platform heel in different materials, and especially ones that show off your new pedicure.
Low wedges with ankle ties are a boho chic staple, especially during festival season. They make your legs look miles long and v toned. Bless. With a low block heel we’ve been obsessed with since last summer, you won’t whine throughout the night that your feet hurt, or look like Bambi stumbling home.
Booties are the shit. You can wear them all year round (sometimes the same pair) and still get a ton of likes on your Insta. The heels are always thick, so you can totally last hours in them without having your feet hate you. And with all the different colors, you can never have too many—says someone who owns at least 10 pairs, six of them black. Moving on! This summer is all about the open-toed bootie that come in neutral shades like taupe, so your summer vacay tan looks a whole lot better when you go from the beach to the bars.
