Every year, spring brings temperatures suited for sitting by the pool or lounging on the beach—outings that don’t necessarily require much more than throwing on a summery outfit, slipping on flip-flops, and heading out to enjoy the sunshine. Flip-flops may be the easiest shoe choice around, but they also tend to bring down the style factor of an otherwise great outfit. Luckily, springtime means plenty of other sandal choices are available to make your feet as stylish as your favorite dress or new sunglasses. We’ve rounded up our favorite seasonal sandals to help you ditch those flip-flops and introduce a new warm-weather staple to your footwear collection!
