Ankle-strap heels have become a hot item this spring and will most likely stick around well into summer. We’ve seen this trend on a number of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Alice Eve, and Rihanna. You can find many more stars further down this page!

The minimalistic design of these popular sandals makes them incredibly versatile and easy to style. Here are some great looks built around ankle-strap sandals from a few fashion bloggers:

1. Crop Top with a Pleated Skirt

In head-to-toe black, Jenny from Neon Blush manages to look street chic and classically feminine at the same time. Her crop top, pleated faux leather skirt, and Zara sandals result in an edgy yet ladylike image.

The collegiate bag and messy hairstyle are appropriate additions to this outfit’s split personality.

2. Spring Trend Blend

Naty from Naty Michele is using her yellow ankle-strap sandals to balance her super trendy outfit. High-low skirts and digitally printed tops are both major trends this spring.

The simplicity of her sandals ties the fashionable pieces together while also complementing the colors in her printed top.
