We are all desperate to bring open toed shoes back into the forefront of our wardrobe and fashion stylist and blogger Alyson Walsh returns to share her tops tips on styling the beautiful range of Hotter sandals throughout the transitional months and beyond.
The sun’s out (sort of) and so it’s time to get sandal-ready. Fortunately, one of my friends recently bought me a foot care kit including heel balm and cotton socks, so I’ve been slathering on the foot cream and indulging in some sock-loving, beauty sleep. Have to admit though that during the summer months one of my regular ‘treats to self’ is a trip to Glamorous Nails for a pedicure. This is my local no-frills salon, where the most glamorous thing is a tin of Celebrations on the counter.
Anyhow… that’s more than enough about my feet. Really, it is! Now onto the topic of what to wear with a pair of brightly coloured leather sandals until it’s warm enough to get your legs out? Try layering a shirt-dress over a pair of matching, wide leg trousers for an easy-breezy not-quite-summer outfit.

Then once the temperature hits double figures, I would recommend a pair of cropped trousers, culottes or rolled up jeans. If in doubt, white jeans and a white shirt (or chambray denim if you’re a mucky pup) are always a good high Summer option.
Floral dresses are having a bit of a moment, think of a looser, slightly 1970’s silhouette (midi or maxi length) as opposed to mother-of-the-bride style. And these brilliant sandals are best worn with clashing bright toenails. I’d wear the turquoise shoes with pink or coral varnish, the yellow sandals with turquoise varnish and the red with pink or blue nail polish. Just because they’re called Tourist Sandals, doesn’t mean you can wear them with socks…
