Light clothing, minimalistic accessories, hats scarves & sunglasses, sandals – And a lot lot more! Summers let you dress light, coolly and comfortably. Whatever you wear, you need to allow your skin to breathe. Yet, there are ample ways you can dress stylishly for the summer season.
For the summers, flat sandals are a basic wardrobe essential for both men and women. Why? Because they’ll let your feet feel easy. Because they don’t have heels and let you walk comfortably. Because they look chic and set off with a number of outfits. Because they are light and don’t take much space, so you can carry them easily when travelling. Because they are perfect for a number of summer events – pool party, trip to the beach, outdoor lunches & dinners, vacationing, or just an evening stroll.
Here’s a guide on what to wear with flat sandals on different occasions in this hi-temperature weather:
For the Evenings
Him: Pair a printed or check pattern shirt with navy color chinos and ankle length gladiators. If the length of the chinos is above the ankle, well and good; if not, roll the end slightly to reach slightly above the ankle.
Her: Match a plain black basic top with a long printed chiffon skirt and black cross-strap sandals. Accessorize with a sleek shoulder bag, light jewelry such as an ethnic ring and earrings.
For the Day Party
Him: Club a pair of colored shorts with a polo t-shirt and sandals with cross-over straps. Don’t forget the sunglasses!
Her: Team a bright color ruffle top with bright color shorts in a different shade, and dress flat sandals. You can add a hat to the ensemble. Because the outfit is playfully colored, make sure the sandals and hat are in the same neutral color.
For the Lunch
Him: Cotton trousers in a beige shade and white half sleeve tee-shirt can be matched with a brown casual half-jacket and leather two-strap sandals.
Her: Pair gladiators with a chiffon short dress in a cool shade like blue, baby pink, light yellow etc. Use a skinny belt of leather/brown color to tie on the high waist. Add a shoulder bag. Make sure the color of the bag, belt, and sandals is the same. You could also add a denim jacket to the look.
For the Beach
Him: A pair of shorts, a t-shirt, and a front open shirt will look chic at the beach. Use slide in sandals. Ensure that at least one of the clothing pieces has a bright color.
Her: Club printed cotton shorts in a very cool shade with a matching flowing neutral color top and light accessories like a bracelet and sunglasses. Use ankle strap flat sandals.
For Going Shopping
Him: Linen trousers in a beige or white tone, clubbed with a guayabera style shirt are just apt to be paired with flip-flops for going to the mall.
Her: A plain black jumper suit complemented by a printed patterned shrug is the ideal balance between comfort and class. Add matching jewelry on the wrist and ears. Wear ankle-length gladiators to complete the look.
