This Summer may be the Summer of Slides. Lately our favorite high end designers and even our favorite celebrities have been showcasing slides as the latest trend. Chanel, Gucci, and Rihanna with her FENTYxPUMA Collection have all released slides that are this Summer's go to sandal for fashionistas everywhere.
For those who are into higher end designers (and those that can afford them)
Gucci is coming back with a vengeance with their new floral collection on their bags and they have even incorporated that into their footwear.
The GG Bloom Supreme Slide Sandal is available for $280 USD and if you're really into florals these may be for you.
Chanel is really my favorite thing, that I cannot afford, or justify buying at this time in my life. Plus, you know what my sis Tamar says, "half of these chicks in Chanel, baby, be going through pure hell!"
The Chanel Glazed Calfskin Mules in Navy Blue are available for $700 USD and I am in LOVE with them they're available from the Chanel Spring/Summer 2016 Pre-Collection.
I think we can "blame" BadGalRiri for the hype surrounding slides this summer. Her slides through her FENTYxPUMA Collection sold out so fast, I barely got a chance to look at them on the website. (lol)
If Gucci and Chanel are not your thing and you still want to style on 'em this summer here are a few options that will keep you chic and allow you to keep your coin.
If you are not familiar with Duckie Confetti please GET FAMILIAR! He gives me all the boldness I need in how he designs for himself and with his Women's Collection. If you are looking for an alternative to Rihanna's fur slide, check out Duckie Confetti's Fur Slides they come in all the colors you need and can be worn inside as well as outside and they're available for $80 USD. Also, if you're into hats like me, his hats are AMAZE, like I need them all, but Bae is tired of me buying nothing but hats, so I exercise a little chill.
If you're here for a little Tomboy Chic vibe, like, myself, Adidas always has slides. The Adidas Originals Adilette Pony Hair Sliders are available on Asos for $64.70 USD, but make sure you give yourself plenty of time from shipping to when you want to wear them, shipping from the UK can take a bit of time.
And just because I love ANYTHING Rose Gold these On the Bright Side Slides are on sale for $20.99 USD and if they were available in my size, they would be on their way to my house, right now.
Slides are definitely on my Style Watch this Summer, so be sure to let me know any cute ones you see because they are an easy and chic way to be casual throughout the season.
