What shoes to choose for a summery day date to the beach

Summery days with the warm breeze kissing the face is a blessing that we want to have 365 days a year in our lives. Sadly, our demographics don’t allow so. After being catapulted by the grim winters and autumn for a major chunk of the year, summer truly is the time to rejoice and get our bikinis out. The perfect weather makes it the best time to go to the beach, enjoy some chilled margaritas with the girlies and lie as the salt water and cool breeze calm our senses.

The idea of going to a beach in pitch winters is a foolish one. So a person who loves the sea looks forward to the summer and spring season, for a beach holiday to let the hair down. And it’s pretty worth it, too. The beach has this eerie sense of calm about it and soothes the soul of the most mentally wounded people. There’s not one reason why a person shouldn’t be visiting the beach when the time is right in the year.

Besides, this is time, when women can truly flaunt their skin and curves without getting a chill to their bones! The colourful bikinis come out, the skimpy bathing suits are flaunted and beautiful legs make a foray into the world. The beach is such a wonderful place to be!

Beach fashion for the feet

The only part about beaches that haunt women is the amount of sand that sticks to your body. Especially when it gets to all parts of footwear; no matter what you wear on your feet. While people may walk barefoot on the sand, it’s not advisable as shells or little crabs may give your feet the worst time.
So, here are the best types of footwear you could be wearing on your trip to the beach –

 

1. Flip-flops

A no-brainer, really; flip-flops are your best bet. They are made of rubber and no amount of sand or water will affect their longevity. One tap along each other and all the sand come off of them. Besides, the vibrant and haute colours in flip flops will make you choose more than one!

 

2. Gladiator flats

These are the best, if you are going to be wearing a bikini or a short swimsuit. It will not only make walking in the sand comfortable, but will also give your bare legs a dimension. And you can always choose the length of the gladiator flat sandal as per your choice.

 

3. Tie-leg sandals

Again, if you are going to be flaunting those legs on the beach, give your legs an element to flaunt too. The tie-leg flat sandals are available in so many types; plain Jane, tasselled sandals and even the fringed ones; there’s a lot to choose from.

 

4. Crocs

Crocs and beaches go hand-in-hand. If you have nothing in your closet, a pair of crocs will let you survive. These let your feet breathe and are super comfortable. As the Crocs  strikes your feet, they will not stick to your skin and will give you an easy time.

 

5. Slip ons or slide ons

Given the fact, that you are going to remove your footwear a lot of times and then wear it again, you need something that is easy to wear and not takes much time to come off. For this purpose, slip ons and slide on are best. They come in so many styles; you can choose from the mini wedge or the light wedge, there’s the double strap or the single strap or even the cross over strap!

 

What sort of footwear do you have packed in your summer hoiliday suitcase?

My shoes usually determine the outfit I wear. When planning a new outfit, I pick my shoes first, because I believe in starting with the foundation. Get the foundation/shoes right, everything else usually looks good. The right shoes can take an ‘OK’ outfit to a ‘WOW’ look, so it makes sense to pay attention to shoes. If you are a fellow shoe lover, and a fellow shopaholic, them you must know you cannot go wrong with the right shoe style.

Style and Fitness

Looking fit and bang on trend is so very important to me. If you a regular reader of Fashion and Style Police, you will know I take my sense of style and fitness very seriously, I don’t mess about with them, which is why the quality of my footwear is very important. I like to feel comfortable and chic whenever I am out running, in the gym, or just going for a walk. Comfort and chic go together when it comes to my style, you won’t catch me rocking any uncomfortable piece or accessory. Life is way too short for that.

I fell in love with Sketchers in 2008, I remember that year because that was when I moved to Bristol for my masters, and if you know Bristol well enough, you would know walking in the city is a pain due to the many hills. I lived on one of the famous hills (Blackberry Hill), so getting out and about was  pain. My good old black Sketchers Bikers Hot trainers (below) was my lifesaver.

7 years after, and this fantastic slip on trainers still lives on in my footwear collection, and I still wear it. I now have my eye on two new pairs to add to my collection, and I hope Santa is reading.

Here they are:

Sketchers Womens Bravos Snow Melt Trainer Boots Wheat £57.00 £45.99

I love this rugged pair, it will be great for snow and it looks so trendy as well. I also love the nice discount, cool bargain.

Sketchers Womens Go Walk 2 Spark Slip On Trainers – Taupe £49.00 £42.99

Now this is a very different type of trainers, and that is what I love about it. The relaxed, effortless design is a no brainer really, and it comes in other colours as well, like black, blue turquoise, and hot pink. This is a great pair to rock this autumn/winter season.

Which do you prefer? Drop me a comment let’s chat.
