Hot Shoe Trends for Summer

This summer, whether you are wearing short shorts or pretty summer dresses, you can follow some the latest shoe trends to look fabulous all summer long. Here are some of the hottest sandal styles for the summer.

Gladiator Sandals
In years past, many gladiator-style sandals were thick and clunky, while others were just drab - only available in browns and other neutral colors. This summer you can dress up your wardrobe with gladiator sandals featuring more feminine lines, thinner straps and funkier colors. Here are a few of my favorites gladiator sandals of the summer.
