With summer right around the corner, you’re probably wondering how to stay comfy and cool without ignoring trends. Probably the best way of getting the best of both worlds is by wearing flat sandals: they’re comfortable, easy to wear, they keep you cool and they come in a wide variety of pretty designs. However, many women imagine that they can only be worn at the beach or for other such informal occasions.
It’s true that they can look a bit too laid back, but you can invest in a pair of ribbon tie sandals – these offer the comfort you are looking for, plus that extra couture element that make them more suitable for dressing up. Here are three ways in which you can style ribbon lace up sandals and match them for any occasion.
The first outfit idea is perfect for the beach, the pol or really hot, relaxed days in the city. Choose a lightweight maxi dress in bright or neon colors and, to make sure it’s not too sheer, wear a tank top underneath. Don’t forget about sunglasses and a large hat to protect you from the sun. If you want to dress up the outfit, wear a thin belt around your waist. If you plan on wearing accessories, try wearing a single-colored dress, but if you won’t have any jewelry, you can experiment with various vibrant patterns.
The second outfit is equally comfortable, but you can wear it for a date, a walk in the park or even a night out, because it’s somewhat more elegant. To begin, take a pair of jeans – make sure they’re not too long, though, because you want the ribbons to show. It’s best if you choose capris, because they’re great for summer.
For the top, choose a loose-fitting blouse or crop top, but to keep it from looking plain, put on a statement necklace. A pair of gorgeous sunglasses is a must too! You can change this outfit from day to night by replacing the day bag with a night clutch. During the day, you can keep your hair wrapped in a bun or in a ponytail, tied with a ribbon. At night, you can let your hair free or curl it.
Last, but not least, you can also incorporate flat sandals into office aspects. This might not sound very appropriate, but the ribbons have an elegant look and if you know how to style them, they’ll look perfect. The elements of this outfit are a simple black skirt that comes right above your knees and a basic T-shirt in a neutral color, such as grey or white. Tuck the T-shirt into the skirt and add an elegant necklace. If it’s not too hot, you can also wear a medium sleeve jacket. To wrap things up, grab your favorite suitcase-style bag and you’re ready to go.
