Black is definitely the new black this summer, and although it is renowned for being a versatile color in fashion, it can be difficult to wear during the warmer months. Here are some bloggers to show you how they style black shoes in the summer to give you some inspiration.
1. Classic Sandals
Simple black sandals are elegant and timeless. With their thin straps, they allow the rest of your outfit to do the talking but hold their own by contributing a subtle touch of class.

2. Statement Sandals
Metallic detailing is another hot trend this season, and combining black and metal together adds an edge to the classic sandals and to your overall look. The delicate ankle straps help you to retain your femininity, while the gold straps boast attitude, making these the most versatile shoes you’ll own this summer.

3. Gladiator Sandals
If you’re after a shoe style that commands attention, look no further than the black gladiator sandals. They make a fierce statement that can be rocked with a monochrome outfit, but they look hot when paired with a pop of color, too!

4. Embellished Flats
If you’re not quite up to stomping around in heels, then embellished flats are a gorgeous alternative. Classy and comfortable, these shoes work great with all summer outfits, including maxi dresses, shorts, and skater skirts.

5. Casual Flats
If sandals aren’t your thing, chunky sole sneakers or creepers are also perfect for summer playtime. The ’90s trend is huge this season, and chunky casual footwear is the best way to own it.
