With brighter evenings and longer days, your summer shoes need to be more than a walk to the office. They should be drinks on the terrace; a summer wedding; a drive to the beach; and an afternoon in the beer garden!
I’ve picked out three of my favourite pairs of shoes from Dune London and shown how you can style them for this summer.
Upgrade from sandals to woven shoes
Sandals definitely have their place in life. On the beach. But life – unfortunately – can’t be always be spent with sand between your toes. For the times that you need something a little more substantial, a woven shoe is the perfect option – allowing you to take the party from the beach to the poolside bar!
They really do tick all the boxes:
- Practical: They keep your feet cool.
- Versatile: They can be worn to the office or by the pool.
- Stylish: The woven detailing is the perfect nod to fashion without becoming a victim of it.

Trainers can look smart in summer
With the right styling, trainers can look smart.
Pick a pair of light and bright lace-up trainers to inject a more contemporary edge into your work outfit. Summer is definitely a time to get experimental with colour, texture and fit; and your shoes should be no exception.
Take these trainers from the office, to a night in or out. It’s all in how you style them!

Colour co-ordinating your summer style
There’s something to be said about colour co-ordination in summer. By marrying the colour of your shoes to your clothing, the whole outfit will be effortlessly pulled together.
Don’t be shy to colour block (the use of one colour throughout) to create an outfit that leaves a major impression with everyone you meet.
In a subtle homage to summer, These tan coloured brogues have an espadrille texture and sole. Like the woven shoes, they also allow all the perks of summer footwear, but without compromising your own classic and sophisticated style.
