With summer so close we can practically taste it, our boots are being packed away, and sandals are coming off the bench. It's time for pedicures, open toes, and minimal straps to take over. However, summer is a time where you want to spend less energy on outfit planning and more on having fun—anything too fussy or overly complicated is simply not worth it when the weather is warm and there are sunny days to be enjoyed. You want to be able to just slip on your favorite sandals, add a few key clothing items, and head out the door.
To simplify your summer outfits, we thought now would be the perfect time to highlight a few cute outfit ideas to wear with your favorite sandals. The looks below are not only chic but are also beyond easy to put together, only requiring a few pieces outside of your sandals of choice. From slip skirts to minidresses to matching sets, here are 10 easy outfits with sandals to try this summer.
1. Shirred Minidress + Mule Sandals
Nothing says summer like a cute mini, and ruched styles are having a major moment. Pair your favorite mule sandals with a chic shirred mini and you've got yourself an outfit.
2. Matching Set + Thong Sandals
4. Short Jumpsuit + Lace-Up Sandals
A short jumpsuit is as chic as it gets, and it also eliminates the headache of planning a full outfit. Add a cute pair of lace-up sandals for a cool juxtaposition to the structured one-piece.
7. T-Shirt + Shorts + Blazer + Sporty Sandals
While the blazer may not always be an option when temperatures really rise, the shorts-and-T-shirt combo is chic nonetheless. The sporty sandals give the otherwise classic look a modern update.
A tiered dress is a look in itself, so pairing it with chic slides allows the dress to do all the talking. A neutral hue is guaranteed to elevate the look.
10. Going-Out Top + Loose Jeans + Floss Sandals
