Summer-Sandals_July15At Sole Amour in Andover the summer shoe selection is scorching. We’re putting the spotlight on three shining examples of summer footwear selected for their sunny dispositions.

Hot in the City
The Stuart Weitzman “Anna” wedge heel, $398, with a peep-toe is designed for comfort and style, so you can rely on it to get you through reunions, weddings or any other summer event that finds your feet on the dance floor. Golden threading throughout the aptly named “pyrite nocturn fabric will sparkle in any light for a finishing touch that won’t be forgotten.

Fringe Benefits
Bohemian chic is blowing up right now, and the “Gelati” flip-flop in Silver Cipria by Stuart Weitzman, $235, completes an easy-breezy look while still showing your sophisticated side. Its glinted tassel embellishment, glass-like sole and beaded ankle accents frame your foot atop any summer surface, from the boardwalk to the beach.

Platinum-dipped leather is woven into a sun pattern and accented by espadrille-like roping along the sole to make the Jack Rogers’s “Marbella” sandal, $148, a summer standout. Its artisan design is a nod to Southwestern style, so you can pair it with jeans or a maxi dress for a sizzling summer casual look.

Ship Shape
The key to classic coastal style lies in how you accessorize. Go nautical without going overboard by opting for conservative over cutesy: Keep things simple with a single statement bag or necklace. Seek out sail-inspired accessories in navy, ivory and gold to complement a sheer navy blouse over white linen pants or a tailored shirt dress. Knot and net patterns, as well as canvas-like fabrics, are other subtle choices that will anchor your look this summer.
