We all look forward to those beautiful summer days and nights that bring out our healthy glows, freshly painted toes, and perfect day-to-night crop tops. With our outfits getting smaller for the season, it¹s time to let your feet shine and that makes summer the perfect time to let your shoes take the spotlight. Here a five summer must have shoe trends:

THE OPEN-TOED BOOTIE:

An open-toed bootie can take you from cool spring nights through bolstering summer days. They are perfect for the days where you may be on your feet a bit longer, as they provide comfort and stability that not all heels do. The simplicity of this shoe allows it to be paired with just about anything from colors and patterns, to simple jeans or even ladylike dresses.

THE GLADIATOR HEEL:

Gladiator sandals have been popular for several years, but this summer's Gladiator has a lift to it. The more straps, the sexier the shoe. This is the perfect shoe to pair with short shorts or a mini dress as you take on the night. This gladiator sandal will be your best friend this summer, making your tan legs look miles long while also helping you to break a few necks.

THE GEOMETRIC FLAT:

With the extreme heat, sometimes we just can¹t think about walking around in heels. Don¹t let the heat take all the fashion sense from your brain. The geometric flat can help accessorize even the simplest cutoffs and tanks.

THE LASER CUT PUMPS:

Every girl needs a basic pump, just like every girl needs a little black dress - a pump that can take you from the office effortlessly to a night on the town. This "not-so-basic" basic pump, will make you stand out just a little more at the water cooler or your cute new neighbor¹s summer BBQ.

COLORFUL GYM CLASS SNEAKERS:

Celebs like Rihanna and fashion designers like Phoebe Philo have been seen sporting wearing colorful gym class sneakers. And these sneakers are not just for casual wear or the gym, they are being worn with high fashion as an alternative to towering heels.
