Not sure how to style fisherman sandals? Here are our fashion directors top tips for slotting them into your wardrobe, even if geek chic isn't your thing.

Laid Back & Dressy

Fisherman sandals feel more feminine when they come in cream or white leather and can be an interesting accompaniment to slinky summer dresses, giving them a daytime easy, effortless edge. Try pale leather if you're new to the trend; they look fresh and preppy with denim too. Just add turquoise beaded anklets.

Polished & Off Duty

Tan leather fisherman sandals bring a classic, elegant polish to tailoring. Keep all your colours tonal for a sophisticated feel and wear them with a pair of khaki balloon-style trousers and a neutral stripy sun top. Complete the look with a playful shopper in the same shades.

Beachy & Chic

Black fisherman sandals give everything a tough fashion-forward feel and can stop pretty romantic dresses and tops feeling too girly. Style yours for the seaside with a little cotton mini dress, and match with black and raffia accessories to create a slick beachy look.
