The Secret to Staying Stylish Through a Sticky Summer? Shoes.

When the temps rise high (and there is little air-conditioning to be found), style can take a back seat – on account of sweating your you-know-what off. This results in what we like to call the summer uniform. Shorts and tees, simple maxi dresses, chinos and polos for guys. If it’s light and easy, we’re wearing it.

The key to keeping things interesting through the hottest months? Shoes. With a bright-hued, eclectic assortment of can’t-help-but-stare-at pairs, what you’re wearing can be simple while your outfit remains standout. Here are some kicks that steal the spotlight.

For her: Red is an attention hog. However pared down (or paper-thin) your outfit is, these shoes will draw every onlooker’s eye.

For him: Focus on detail and color from the ankle down, freeing you up to go all-neutral on top.

For kids: For summer, always find them the cutest pairs – they’ll probably strip off that adorable outfit you picked anyway.
