Thanks to the easing of lockdown rules and the gradual rising temperatures, many of us are now on a frantic search for the perfect pair of sandals. If you are yet to have any success on your mission we are, as ever, here to cut out hours of trawling the internet to find you the perfect pair.

We've put together the ultimate shortlist of the sandals that will see you through the entire season, and many more summers to come. After a Zoom debate in the Who What Wear office, our fashion editors decided that there are five styles of sandals that will see you through every warm weather occasion coming up this year.

First up, we have the chunky, city-appropriate sporty sandal, followed by the archival appeal of the fisherman sandal, which will work for coastal walks or a day of window shopping. Then on the other end of the sandals spectrum, we have the ultimate dress-up-dress-down shoe—the kitten heel—ideal for any weddings you have coming up this year. Last but not least, we have the leather flip flop, which perfectly bridges the gap between smart and casual.
