Thursday, June 09, 2022

Nothing screams ‘summer is here’ more than having to reach for your favourite pair of sandals on a hot summer’s day. Sandals are a must-have in every girls’ wardrobe, whether you’re looking for the perfect chunky sandal to dress up your evening outfit or a simple pair of sliders to create an effortlessly cool yet comfy look, we’ve got you covered. Uncover a variety of on-trend sandal styles and colours to find the right style for you here at DLSB.

Sandals are the ideal summer footwear choice - versatile, breathable and most importantly, comfortable. They come in a variety of different styles, fabrics, colours and heights making them the ideal go-to footwear option to complete any outfit this summer. Your summer style this year  will most likely consist of cute day dresses, fun, colourful playsuits, floaty midi dresses, graphic tees and floral skirts - all of which would look incredible with a fashionable pair of sandals.

If you’re looking for a reliable, everyday sandal to throw-on and go, a flat gladiator style sandal is a great option - the straps and buckles keep the sandals practical and supportive enough to wear all day long, without compromising comfort. The same can be said for sliders, as they’re easy to throw on with almost any outfit and provide breathability and style. Whether you’re on a summer holiday or relaxing in the sun at home, a pair of stylish sandals are guaranteed to keep you cool and comfortable all day long.

If you’re more of a heels girl and you’re looking to find the perfect shoe for summer day drinks, consider a chunky sandal. They’re a great alternative to heels that provide the same flattering height and style while allowing more flexibility and comfort - pairing great with almost any night-out look. No matter what your individual style is, find out which type of sandals will suit your personality best and make a killer, on-trend outfit with our wide range of summer clothing and footwear here at DLSB. 

How To Style Flat Sandals

A go-to casual summer outfit starts with a trusty pair of flat black sandals for ultimate comfort. They’re versatile enough to keep in your outfit rotations all summer long and can be paired with almost any outfit. Our stylists suggest a great way to wear a classic black sandal is with a flowy floral skirt paired with your favourite graphic tee or crop-top. This look is stylish, breathable and great for running errands or meeting up with friends for a day spent in the sun. Complete this casual summer look with a handy cross-body bag to store all of your summer essentials.

Why not try a coloured sandal to add something a little different to your outfit? Pair with a classic LBD for an effortlessly cool summer look. Accessorise with your favourite summer hat to keep the sun at bay and a chunky belt to cinch in your waist for a flattering silhouette. This look is great for an outdoor brunch with the girls or for a picture perfect outfit for exploring on holiday, with the secure buckled ankle straps keeping the sandals practical and comfortable enough to walk around all day long.

How To Style Chunky Sandals

A chunky sandal is a great summer alternative to a pair of heels and a simple way to dress up any outfit with a comfortable yet stylish footwear choice. Choose a pair of chunky white sandals to match with a colourful, floaty jumpsuit for a great outfit choice for an evening on holiday. The white colour of the sandals will bring out your summer holiday tan and compliment your colourful outfit perfectly.

Replace your trusty, chunky black boots with a chunky black sandal to add a little bit of edge to any outfit. Pair the chunky black sandals with a sultry, satin midi dress for a look that can be taken from a summer day event to a night out. Accessorise your look with a studded black waist belt and black bag to match the sandals for a guaranteed chic summer outfit. 

How To Style Sliders

There’s no need to compromise comfort for style this summer with a pair of ultra-cool sliders. A classic choice to throw on with any outfit, a pair of black sliders will last you all summer long. Sliders can be paired with almost any outfit, but we love to style them with a casual co-ord such as a matching shorts and relaxed shirt. Sliders create an easy-going look, ideal for throwing on for a chilled day at the beach or relaxing in the garden at home - no matter the occasion, sliders are a fool-proof option to complete any outfit.

If you’re looking for a fun, casual pair of sandals to liven up your summer looks, a colourful pair of sliders is a great choice. Pair your colourful sliders with an equally colourful t-shirt dress for a laidback look, perfect for lounging around by the pool on holiday. If you’re wanting to keep the comfort and ease of a slider for a night-time look, they can easily be paired with your favourite floral midi dress or maxi skirt to keep you looking casual from day to night.
