Style Spy: Barely-There Sandals
While some shoe trends burst onto the scene, all buckles and brazen heels, others filter through more steadily, gathering a legion of stylish fans in their wake; cue the barely-there sandal.
Deceptively simple, the barely-there – or two-strap – sandal has become a firm favourite with the A-list, both on the red carpet and while out and about. An elegant, leg-elongating and utterly versatile style, it’s not hard to understand why.
Day To Night
There’s nothing we love more than those easy-to-wear extras that can transform a daytime ensemble into evening chic. Emmy Rossum’s barely-theres put a sultry spin on an all-black look, with toe nails painted to match her poppy red pout. A heel to have close at hand in the desk drawer…
Modelling Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist Sandal in its most literal form, Karlie Kloss ensures the delicacy of her white lace dress isn’t overpowered by opting for her pair in nude. Choose a neutral shade for toenails to maintain the minimalist effect.
To master a tailored look you need a leg-elongating heel. While we’d usually opt for a pointed single sole, Solange Knowles proves the barely-there sandal can add an extra level of sass, particularly when metallic.
