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.
Jeffrey Campbell Perpetua Mule
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.
Lucky Brand Idalina Sandal
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.
Free People Infinity Heel Boot
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.

In addition to the obvious reasons why fall is the best of all time (pumpkin everything, leggings err’day…etc.), the fashion is always on point. I can wear the most comfortable outfit to work and then come home to lounge without feeling the need to peel off my
skin clothes. It’s almost as refreshing as flinging my bra across the room. And this obviously goes for shoes, too. In the summer, I feel the need to stock up on heels so I can be taller than 5’3” (for once) and frolic on the beach in too-expensive wedges that I end up ruining. At least in the fall, I don’t run the risk of breaking my ankle when I have too many shots because I can wear cute af booties or trendy ballet flats to keep me decently steady. Not only are they reliable, but flats come in real handy if you’re a city betch and always pack a pair to change out of. Ya, ain’t nobody got time for walking a city in heels or balancing on a hydrant to put them on… Here are flats you’ll love enough to wear all fall and won’t just throw in your bag and forget about.
^^^Um, yes, I agree that martinis come before shoes and guys… except when it comes to Louboutins. *Jumps off the stage to grab them*
1. BCBGeneration Noel Flat
IDK what to say about these other than the fact that they’re the cutest fucking things I’ve ever seen. They come in black so that’s an A+ in my book already, and they’re lace-up which means you can wear them with a dress or cropped leggings for an attempt at being stylish (even if the rest of your outfit says otherwise). And like, they’re pointed toe which makes you look kinda sophisticated, but most importantly, they make your feet look tiny.
2. Soludos Venetian Convertible Loafers
OK I know these might look like the same slippers your grandpa wears, but hear me out. Flats don’t only consist of ballet flats, but daddy
issues shoes are also in their prime time at the moment for their max comfort and flexibility. They’re comfy af and go with anything you could possibly imagine. You can even fold the backs down if you’re feeling extra hipster-ish or some shit.
3. Calvin Klein Women’s Lisette Flats
Does anyone actually wear Sperry’s anymore? Just douchey frat guys in a basement? Okay, I thought so. These are basically the trendier upgrade of the fuckboy shoe, coming in three feminine shades that complete a v classy, refined goody two-shoes ensemble. You know, for all those occasions you can’t bring your flask because it’s “frowned upon” and “9 in the morning”.
4. Beek Seagull Mule
It’s a slip-on, it’s a hotter version of the cringeworthy clog… it’s a mule. The mule is essentially a combination of the two and although the name is literally that of an ass, there are actually really cute styles this season. These are the perfect walking and standing shoes because they obviously have no heel. The rose gold gives a pop of flair to any average outfit and lets your basicness shine to the world.
5. Jimmy Choo Vanessa Lace-Up Flat
Two words, one name: Jimmy Choo. There’s a reason why homegirl Carrie Bradshaw had dreams about his shoes. This shoe is the hotter version of the ballet flat, to put it blunt. With bold red suede and risqué cutouts, the classic pointed toe flat elevates every outfit with bright color and crisp style. These are too
expensive precious to fuck up, so don’t even think about blacking out in them.
