On the search for the perfect summer sandal but don't want to break the bank? Here are 8 expensive-looking summer sandals for under €50
While the weather is not in our favour right now, that doesn't mean we can't stock up on summer stocking fillers.
The summer sandal is synonymous with lunches by the sea and long walks by the canals of Europe in a midi dress with a book in hand. Europe may only be a pipe dream this year, so a weekend in Westport seems more realistic.
If this is to be true, then make sure to make Westport, Ballybunion or Lahinch your runway. Put on the fabulous summer dress, the sassy sandals, and get your book and make the most of our summer months.
Because our climate is not of the Mediterranean persuasion, some of you might feel a little hesitant in spending on a pair of sandals that may merely get a handful of wears.
Luckily, with all of the sartorial splendour at our fingertips, it's quite easy to find a good quality pair at a fraction of the price.
Look to staple colours such as brown, nude and black and stick to leather for durability and longevity. If choosing something brighter, search for design features such as a print effect or a buckle – these little details help to elevate the shoe to something more intricate.
