1. Experiment with coloured heels

Summer is the time to play with colour – and there's no easier way to do it than with your footwear. You can easily wear a minimal outfit with a pop of colour at the bottom. Opt for something subtle like baby blue or pink, or go crazy with splashes of yellow and orange. Whatever your vibe is, we support you.

2. Stay comfortable in a classic white sneaker

Sneakers are easily a go-to shoe for us in the summer time. If you're going somewhere where you're going to be doing a lot of walking, you need to be wearing a fresh pair of white sneakers. There are plenty of brands we love, but in particular, the hottest styles seem to always come from Nike, adidas and Puma.

3. Opt for a pair of mules

If you're going out for the night (or the day), a pair of great mules will easily become your best friend. They're generally comfortable – you'll usually see them in a mid height range – which is what makes them so easy to wear. Throw them on with a cute summer-ready dress or some sleek white pants and your outfit is sorted.

4. Go square with your shoes

Square-toed shoes are a trend that we didn't expect to see, but we're very happy it's here. It's a subtle feature added to a shoe that just steps it up a notch, making you look super trendy (and the added space gives you extra comfort). If you want to look like you just stepped out of someone's Instagram feed, get yourself a pair of square-toed shoes.

5. Not your average pair of slides

Sneakers are comfortable and supportive, but there's nothing like sliding your foot into a pair of shoes and just running out the door. Slides don't have to be branded with Nike and adidas, there are plenty of cute ones on the market that you need to grab ASAP. We're obsessed with colourful, textured and patterned slides for the summer.

6. White heels scream summer

While we love colour in the warm weather, we love white even more. Whether it's paired with an all-white outfit or a colour-blocked combination, white heels are an absolute essential for the summer. White looks fresh and clean, and makes your tan look even better. Just make sure you've got your toenails painted.

7. Clear shoes go with anything and everything

Clear shoes are a staple all year long but footwear brands really start to experiment with the trend in the summer. At the moment, there are loads of different styles on offer including heels, flats and sandals. The clear material is great because it means you can wear it with any kind of outfit you put together. Opt for a plain and simple style, or something a little more fun and strappy – the choice is up to you!
