Here are our top picks for steppin' out in style this summer... from wedges to flats to even boy-style oxfords.

Alison's Pick

Lillian Mirror Metallic Wedges, $198 J. Crew

I already own this style in a honey brown suede and they've become my go-to sandal to pair with jeans and dresses. So when J. Crew offered it in metallic, I had to snap it up. This do-it-all sandal is low enough to go anywhere and keep me comfortable yet chic. Comfort is a must on days dashing around stores and styling clients.

Gramercy Oxford in Rooftop Nubuck/Sunlight, $198 Cole Haan

I own an almost embarrassing sum of oxfords and brogues. I definitely have more than my husband does. Multiple colors, and even metallic patent leather ones. I love them because I can sport my tomboy side and they're supremely comfortable. These are always in my suitcase on trips back to NYC. I'd much rather wear these walking around the city than sneakers. My Converse, as cute as they are, offer no foot support. 
Now or Never by Chinese Laundry, $59 Piperlime
I know these look similar to my J. Crew picks, but I also know I'll wear sandals with a demi-wedge all Summer. Whether it's these or another designer's style, you can't go wrong with a black pair, camel-colored pair and a metallic pair to get you through the summer months.

Lauren's Pick

Cheeky Heels, $80 Seychelle's Footwear

These shorter heels are so comfortable for strolls along the Santa Monica promenade, warm evening parties, or just a cute, dressy day at work. I'm loving the mint color for Spring and Summer. They also come in cobalt and black with bows in place of the flowers, but the flowers were too cute and springy for me to pass up.

Endless Amusement


Christina Wright's Pick

Serena Sandal, $125 Nordstrom

I just love these Sam Endelman shoes we used in a styled wedding shoot. They're style is perfect to dress up or down for the summer, and that coral is just the perfect pop of color. Love them!

Simply Modern Weddings


Christina Moffitino's Pick

Emma (Creme&Black), $50 Sole Society

Every girl needs a go-to shoe. For me, this Summer, it's these color blocked wedges. I love that they are a neutral color I can pair with a variety of different looks. They're super stylish and surprisingly comfortable. I've already taken them out for a night of dancing and a long day of graduation events. I'm proud to report back that any gal would be happy to sport them on a summer getaway or even for a date night with the ladies. 

Street Swag
