When looking for shoes to wear for a summer occasion, my selection may range from dressy heels to simple espadrilles. The overall effect may be subtle, with a sandal disappearing beneath a beautiful dress, or bold, with my shoes making a statement on their own. Crisp fringed, colorful patterns, pearl embellishments, or knot details give that extra bit of interest. A neutral heel is interchangeable and can be worn year-round. For a variety of options and styles, see my round-up of special occasion shoes below.
