Summer means sandals

Work-appropriate doesn't mean you have to give up on sleek and stylish

Have I mentioned lately how much I love the summer? It's a chance to have fun with your wardrobe, especially when it comes to emerging styles and shorter cuts. It's a chance to experiment with textiles, especially when it comes to trendy hues and bold patterns. And lastly, it's a chance to add to that ever-expanding collection of sandals.

One of my absolute favourites is the vintage T-strap pump. I love this look for work because I don't feel like I am sacrificing style by wearing footwear that is work-appropriate. The T-strap is also versatile enough that you can wear it with a skirt, cropped pant or even a pair of pressed dress shorts.

Another fantastic sandal for summer is the strappy leather flat. Think multiple thin leather straps made even more fabulous with metallic buckles and grommets. This sandal style looks great with casual summer garment choices such as cutesy patterned sundresses or a pair of slim-cut rolled-up coloured denim and a washed-out loose fitted tank and contrasting bandeau combo.

For the fashionistas out there who are looking for something sleek and sexy this summer, I would absolutely recommend the high wedge back zip cut out. This sandal is super-gorgeous with a pair of dress shorts and blouse for a night out or teamed up with a simple tunic for the office gal who likes to kick it up a notch.

Whatever your style, there is a summer 2013 sandal out there for you just waiting to join the rest of the treasures in your shoe closet.

Got a suggestion for a future column or a fashion trend worth following?
