High heeled sandals for the summer 2014 season are hot! Unlike summer 2013, summer 2014 is giving Fashionistas everywhere flat soles (also referred to as “single soles”) and high design. Simple sandals with a high heel are simply not around this season!
As you can see in the photos above, high heel sandals were spotted on the runway with wrap-around ties used as both ankle straps and the structure of the shoe. (see the green, lace-up pair peeking out on the left in the top photo). My apologies for the photo quality. My seat was not that great!
High heel sandals for summer 2014 are being shown in varying styles with the two most popular silhouettes shown above. The hottest style this season is like the green pair above. Lace-up sandals are hotter than hot; and they are shown in both high heel and flat versions for the hot weather season. In addition to lace-up sandals, the ankle strap is hot for summer 2014 and it is being shown with one thick strap in front of the toes. Although there are many, many more high heel sandal styles on the market for the summer 2014 season, these are the two hottest styles being shown with thin heels.
Although thin heels are the most popular heel being shown with tie-up sandals, chunky heels and wedges can also be found on the market. Ankle straps being shown for summer 2014 can be found in both the tie up version as well as a single strap with a buckle.
For summer 2014, high heel sandals look amazing with cropped pants, midi skirts/dresses and boyfriend jeans. If you are looking for a heel to wear with shorts, look for a thick, stacked heel with a thicker body and no tie straps.
I found a few fabulous thin heeled, high heel sandals around the web and assembled them into the shopping widget below. I hope you love them! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
