The highstreet is full of great styles this season. You can make a real statement with embellishment and bright colours. Or you can choose a simplistic style that can be thrown on with anything. There's a place in our hearts (and wardrobes!) for both, but if it's a choice between one or the other then we recommend investing in the latter, because minimalist sandals are timeless, so you they'll see you through multiple summers beyond 2016.
If you're jetting off on holiday, think about what kind of activities you're going to be doing. Do you need a comfortable, supportive sandal that you can walk for hours in? Or are you after something more glamourous that works when sipping cocktails by the bar? If you're after a day-to-day sandal then perhaps a practical colour or fabric is a more pressing concern? It's worth considering what you'll be wearing them with, too - why not flick through our pick of the best summer skirts and summer dresses to find the perfect pairing?
Whether you want chunky soles and thick straps or something more dainty and sprinkled with embellishment we have you covered. And we've included trend-led pieces too, like block heels and the fashion editors sandal of choice: pool sliders.
