How To Get The Look: Holiday sandals
Sunday 22 June 2014
No problem, I got this one. Free World Cup flip-flops
Please, a flip-flop isn't a sandal, it's a temporary solution to wet varnish on your toenails. I guess you're also restocking your underwear drawer with paper pants from the beauty salon?
That would be consistent with the Brazilian theme, but OK, no flip- flops beyond the beach, then
Good, they're terrible for walking anyway. Plus you'd be a fool to pass up on the myriad flat sandal styles around this summer. Jewelled sliders, classics Birkenstocks – flatties have never been better.
I somehow feel short-changed with a flat
You get less engineering for your money, sure. But what's great right now is that chunky flat-forms or sturdier strides have replaced barely there pancake-flat thongs. More comfortable and more flattering on legs that aren't pin-thin.
Warming up to this idea now…
Take a bargain way in to the trend with these white Fleet sandals from Asos (£35, asos.com, pictured above) which combine classic Grecian style with a chunky sole. A touch more glam, KG by Kurt Geiger has a simple thick-soled flat sandal in nude, with ankle strap and a simple crystal-embellished band across the toes (£70, kurtgeiger.com). They're called Night, for which they'd be perfectly appropriate.
