Unexpected Hero

Slides

Slides have been having a bit of a moment since last year, but now they’ve officially replaced the flip-flop as the ubiquitous summer shoe. They’re no-fuss and super-versatile, making them the perfect option for warmer weather. Whether you want your slides to make a statement or you’re after a pair that go with everything, there are so many styles and colours on offer that it’s impossible to sit this trend out. 

Top Tips:
  • Keep the rest of your look fairly polished to avoid looking as if you’re heading to the beach
  • Stick to styles in luxurious materials like suede, leather and satin for a chic city look
  • Schedule in a pedicure beforehand – slides are only going to highlight your feet
  • Embrace the fun side of this trend, mixing up colours and textures to keep it interesting
