How To Make Sandals Work With Every Outfit

There's something about an open-toe shoe that's simply irresistible between now and September. (Heck, we'll don 'em with socks for the colder months, too.) And, fun fact: There's nothing they don't match. That powder-blue suit you got dry cleaned for your Monday-morning meeting? Pair it with a white strappy sandal to complement the pastel hue. For date-night shoes that won't destroy your arches, mid-heels will keep you prepared for impromptu, romantic strolls. And, we wouldn't even consider running errands in anything but our trusty Birkenstocks.
While shoe shopping to your heart's content is okay by us, it's only one piece of the sartorial puzzle. That's why we crafted five perfect sandal outfits to take you from work to gallery openings to everything in between. After a fresh pedicure, your feet will sincerely appreciate the air time.
