It's finally happened: Just in time for the easing of lockdown rules, the sun has emerged and the forecast is looking more promising by the minute. Take that, spring-time hail (seriously, what was with that?) and pesky showers! At long last, we can start thinking about what we actually want to wear this summer. Although there's a plethora of pretty dresses, chic jumpsuits, and elegant handbags to consider, we believe that no item is more important to get right than sandals.
Effectively the gatekeeper to all the excellent outfits you can wear this time of year, a well-chosen pair of sandals will help you unlock your full sartorial potential. This, however, brings a certain amount of pressure. With so many sandal options to choose from, it can be daunting to know where to begin your search. At least it would be if it weren't for Dune London.
Over the past few seasons, Dune London has cemented itself as the need-to-know place to find the coolest shoes, and it's all due to its elevated designs, acute attention to detail, and indisputable quality. The first stop for fashion insiders looking to update their footwear line-ups, the brand has had so many styles achieve cult status—of which many have been sandals—we've lost count.
From its iconic Loupe slider to the chunky Lockstockk double-straps, it's safe to say that Dune London knows how to create best-selling sandals, and its 2021 collection certainly lives up to our now-lofty expectations. Showcasing some of the most impressive styles we've seen on the high street thus far, you're sure to find your perfect pair (or, if you're anything like us, pairs) in the brand's summer edit. However, if you still need a little help in deciding which to invest in, we've rounded up the three noteworthy trends you need to keep your style on point this season.
From the "ugly" sandals that keep selling out to the sexy stilettos taken straight from the '90s archives and the sleek slider that bridges the trend gap between them, scroll below to see the three sandal trends our editors are shopping exclusively from Dune London.
