Whether you are fanatical for trends or, like me, tend toward classic pieces, accessories are the perfect way to make an outfit feel modern and fresh. From workwear to weekend attire and vacation outfits, shoes are an easy way to make a statement without feeling like you’re going overboard, and in the case of Summer’s biggest shoe trend — the barely there strappy sandal — the look is as understated as ever.
Commonly referred to as the “dental floss sandal,” these minimalist shoes capture a late ’90s to early ’00s spirit , but in a way that feels ultrafresh in bright white shades, pastel hues, and versatile neutrals. Some are so inconspicuous, you might even take an outfit to be shoeless from a distance (OK, maybe that’s just me because I have bad eyes, but you get it when I say they’re very minimal).
When it comes to styling barely there sandals, there are very few limitations — they look great with just about everything! A denim-on-denim outfit? Yep. With a trendy boilersuit? Absolutely. With a puffy-sleeve top and utility trousers? You betcha. We even love them with Summer work dresses, miniskirt outfits, printed pants, wedding-guest dresses, jumpsuits, rompers, minidresses . . . I wasn’t exaggerating when I said everything.
To make it as easy as possible for you, I put together seven easy outfits that look perfect with strappy sandals, featuring stylish and affordable pieces from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s.
