Fashion Closet: Sandals

Fashion editor Celia Smith talks about the summer sandals to strut in.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] sandals. Everything old is new again this season. Birkenstocks. Mules. Platforms. You name it, it's hot. Full figured ladies, before lacing up the right sandals for your feet. Remember to bring the color. Be bold, go bright. Sandals that offer padded support and the thick chunky heel will have you rocking comfortably. Despite what you heard, chic and comfort can indeed coexist. Now, for my cone darlings, take on the perfect sandal in bright colors as well, and a solid heel. This'll give you the va-va-va-voom that you need to balance out your upper body effortlessly. Triangle gals, comfort is key. Don't be afraid of a kitten heel. They're super sleek this season. Three inches or less. We'll have you dancing all night. To support your lower half, opt for a thick square heel as well, which is totally mod this season, and can work with jeans, or a super cute 60's dress. Petite ladies, take it higher, platform sandals are perfect for you. Thin strap sandals are also completely flattering. Think, Rihanna or Ashley Madekwe. Those sandals expose more leg, and instantly lengthen your look. Hourglass, you can pretty much pull off any heel. But fear not the flat. Awesome gladiator sandals that are knee-high length and super sleek slip-ons will take you from work to play fabulously. So what now? As temperatures creep up into the 80s and 90s make sure your sandal game is on point and your pedicure. Be sure to shop, My style, in Fashion Closet.
