Ten pairs of open-toe sandals perfect for work (and non-work too)

Ten pairs of open-toe sandals perfect for work (and non-work too)

Summertime can be a particularly tricky time of year for office attire, mostly because of the difficulty in finding office AND hot-weather appropriate shoes. There’s no fun in arriving to work with blister-covered feet from painful shoes, is there? The challenge of summer footwear can be met with this all-encompassing solution: pay loads of money for shoes that will get a handful of wears, at best. But where is the logic in dropping hundreds (thousands, even) on a summer shoe that’s destined for the back of the wardrobe in a less than eight weeks?

The good news is that there is a plethora of stylish, sophisticated summer footwear available for every budget and office environment. If your office is formal, consider a chunky-soled, black leather sandal like the Valerie cross strap sandal from Topshop, below. Or if you work in a more chilled-out, relaxed environment, choose delicate tangerine slingbacks and pair with breathable linen and soft cotton. Exotic faux croc skin slingbacks are just what your Friday morning meeting needed, and suede sandals with a glamorous scarf tieing mechanism make for great water-cooler conversation fodder. Dark animal prints will add excitement to a regular black ensemble, while bows and polka-dots will remind you of happy hour come 4 o’clock on Friday.

Don’t let summer pass you by without finding your perfect pair of office sandals: here are ten pairs of gorgeous sandals for every type of workplace this summer.
