Classic Designer Sandals In Flat & Mid-Height Styles

When the occasion calls for a stylish ensemble but sky-high heels just aren’t the vibe, these classic designer sandals have you covered. For a low-heel look that’s every bit as dressy as stilettos, opt for the 70 mirrored leather mules by Gianvito Rossi. Firstly, thanks to their trending gold mirror finish and unique waved design, these gorgeous gold slip-ons will elevate any outfit you pair them with. Secondly, the modest height means you can wear them comfortably all night long. Wear yours with a sleek cocktail dress for maximum style points. We highly recommend the Kyra strapless dress by Skin for cocktail parties, dinner dates, and everything in between. Finally, add the coordinating gold mini Sardine leather cross-body bag by Bottega Venta for a sleek finishing touch.

Alternatively, when only flats will do, the bow micro wedge sandals by Maeve are the ones. We adore everything about these adorable embellished sandals. From the sleek all-black colorway and barely-there wedge heel to the adorable oversized bow detailing at the front. Additionally, they’ll turn any outfit you wear them with from simple to stylish and will go with countless dresses already in your closet. So, take them on vacation or wear them with your go-to off-duty dresses this spring and summer for a day or night of endless compliments. We’ll be styling ours with the Calsi dress by Doen and the Olivia large hobo bag by Khaite for an unforgettable spring/summer weekend look.

Classic Designer Sandals With Stiletto Heels

When it comes to cocktail parties, dinner dates, wedding receptions, and more, often only classic designer sandals with heels will do. To make curating your outfits as simple as can be, we’ve tracked down the season’s most beautiful heeled sandals you’ll want to wear now and for years to come. For example, the Biscuit patent leather sandals by Jimmy Choo. These stunning nude heels will go with every evening dress in your closet. Additionally, they’ll instantly lengthen your silhouette with their versatile nude colorway. We highly recommend styling them with the Colette ruffled floral print gown by Ulla Johnson for a beautiful boho-inspired look. Finally, throw your essentials for the night inside the hammock hobo mini bag by Loewe to complete your outfit.

Finally, we’ll never be sick of metallic stiletto heels, and it seems the world’s leading footwear designers agree. They happen to be trending right now with styles like the Tangueva Alta snake-effect sandals by Louboutin stealing everyone’s attention. These statement shoes will be a star of your closet this season and next. Not to mention, they’ll look just as amazing with glitzy cocktail party dresses as they do with LBDs and gowns. Give these shoes the romantic moment they deserve this spring. Pair yours with the floral embellished Elizabella maxi dress by Love Shack Fancy.
