Sweet summertime is here and the summer fashion is bright with potential. Choosing an outfit is all fun and games, but at the end of the day, shoes can make or break it.

Shoe styles are infinite. There are so many different shapes and styles and colors perfect for any outfit, but it can be so overwhelming. Summertime offers the opportunity to explore new trends and mix and match styles. The lace-up trend is popular, and adding it to wedges, sandals, espadrilles, etc. is so easy. You can also have a classic gladiator on a platform sandal.

To make shoe shopping easier for you and happier for your closet, Downtown has put together a shoe guide of nine must-have shoes (and styles) for the summer season.

Shoes are an easy way to spice up an outfit and express yourself. Always remember, in the words of Marilyn Monroe, if you “Give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer the world.”
