Today I will talk about fashion and how we can look more sophisticated focusing now in summer. Because summer is here and we want to look our best right? But today I’m going to talk about elegant but comfortable shoes to wear in summer. And the reason why I have to throw in comfortable is because in summer, number one we’re a little bit more active, we tend to walk more than when it’s cold, we also have more social gatherings during daytime. And I can tell you one thing, it is very difficult to find beautiful yet comfortable shoes.
So number one, this sandal. And I’m talking of course about the low heel sandal, not the high heel one. I think the low heel sandal is definitely a really good investment. I’m actually, I have one that I’m gonna show you. This can be a potential sandal. You can have different variations and different heels. This one has a very small heel. These are from Alya. I really like them. They’re a bit like gladiator inspired and you can actually wear sandals like flat sandals with a cute summer dress, short one, can also wear it with a long maxi dress, works both beautifully or with shorts whatever.
And it’s also good because it’s an open shoe so it lets your feet breathe. Now I don’t know if you can run miles or walk for miles in this shoe. But you can definitely survive a few hours of sightseeing so very good investment and a must. Color-wise, I personally like to go something that is not too contrasting to your own skin tone. That is just my preference because I feel like it elongates your legs a little bit when you do that. If you wear for instance a black sandal and especially like this one that goes a bit up, it cuts off your leg a bit so your legs might look a little bit shorter than they are.
First of all, it’s covering so if you’re somebody like me suffer with flat feet issues, wearing sandals can actually be a little bit difficult sometimes. But with the ballerina shoe, it’s covering all the way around. So if you have flat feet, then your feet will always look good in a pair of ballerinas. And the heel is low so very comfortable to walk around it. There are also ballerina shoes with a bit thicker heel and they’re obviously not going to be as comfortable but like they at least feel a little bit more dressed up. If you feel like this is a bit too plain for whatever occasion that you are going to wear these to.
But I think the ballerina shoe is a perfect also daytime shoe when you go to work, a perfect city shoe. Kate Moss is the one who really rocked this shoe well and I think that it’s a nice shoe that is has a little bit of a preppiness to it. I know some people are not big fans of ballerina but I personally love them. I would personally get a pair of black ballerina shoes first, because they look very chic.
Then I would also get a pair of scheme color that matches your skin color. If you really want to spend on ballerina shoes then really spend on a pair of Chanel ballerinas because they are very high quality inside information but Chanel actually does the most quality shoes for that price range and that are still not too expensive.
Of all the designers that create shoes, Chanel is actually one of the best, so very much recommended to spend a little bit extra If you don’t want to spend on Chanel ballerinas, then you can get maybe something like this. These are from French Sole, I really think that they make really nice shoes that actually durable. These ones I’ve worn so many times so they are a little bit now worn out. But I’m gonna get a new pair but they have lasted me years I think, of wonderful years.
Now I don’t have mules to show you because I don’t actually wear mules but I know Gucci I’m very popular for mules. These shoes are not classy so go and check out that video if you still haven’t. I’m actually talking about like proper leather mules, like Gucci like I said, like a loafer mule or something. It’s definitely going to make you look elegant and comfortable. The only problem is, it’s a sliding shoe so it’s going to be a little bit more challenging to walk.
I think that since we’re talking about the mules, might as well just quickly talk about the Gucci loafer because that one is very popular as well. Now what the loaf of course is going to be a little bit more warm but if you feel like the mule is going to be too uncomfortable to walk a bit longer distance and definitely just get the classic Gucci loafer instead.
I think you can sometimes get away with wearing a stiletto in the evening. But if you really want to focus on elegance then we don’t go higher than mid-heel. We tend to go maximum maybe 10, 11 centimeters but that is actually qualified as a high-heel. But for daytime events, 11 centimeters pair of heels might make you feel a bit more uncomfortable and a little bit out of place. We want to definitely do low or mid heel for daytime events. So a perfect daytime event shoe that I’m going to show you is the Gucci Grandma Shoes. At least that’s how I like to call it.
