K Jacques St Tropez "Caravelle" Sandal in Leopard Print, $285 www.net-a-porter.com

Garance might prefer Les Rondinis, but K Jacques are still a sandal du Jour for fashion's jet set. We particularly like the leopard print ankle cuff on this pair.

Church's Classic Brogues in Pale Pink, $425 www.net-a-porter.com

Black brogues are bit too hefty for summer, but white brogues get dirty fast. This blush pair from Church's is the perfect compromise.

Vanessa Bruno Athé Suede Ballerina Flats in Red, $361 www.lagarconne.com

We think red flats are the ideal antidote to any neutral outfit. And the wrinkly suede on this made-in-Spain pair is extra pretty.

Pierre Hardy for Gap Lace-Up Denim Espadrille, $65 www.gap.com

We've got a pair of Pierre Hardy x Gap sandals from a few seasons ago, and we still wear them on a regular basis. Not only are they comfortable, but they're made well. This espadrille would look great with all the denim you'll be mixing and matching this summer.

Keds x Steven Alan Ikat Slip On, $68 www.stevenalan.com

We know we've already declared our love for Steven Alan's darling kicks, but we'd like to reiterate: If you're going to buy one pair of casual sneakers this summer, make it these. Keds are ultra-comfortable, and you can walk in them for miles.

Beatrix Ong "Kami" Origami Leather Ballet Flats, $349 www.farfetch.com

We've always wanted a pair of white leather ballet flats, but most are downright cheap-looking. This style is subversive without getting in the way of an aggressive get-up.

Not only do we love this teal color, but the woven detailing and low cut make this pair extra-summery.

Loeffler Randall Idris Navajo Puzzle Sandals, $395 www.shopbop.com

Okay, we know these have a teeny-tiny wedge, but they're just too cute to ignore.

Not only do these work well with all the grey swimming around your closet, they're also muted enough to try with a white or denim dress.

LD Tuttle "The Moment" Sandal in Black, $430 shop.creaturesofcomfort.us

If you were very into the gladiator sandal a few seasons back, you might like this slouchy update. The zipper on the back of the ankle is a nice detail.
