Flat sandals and dresses - a classic summertime combo and the simplest way to look effortlessly cool – just two items and you’re ready. We love @illyanalondon ‘s peachy floral sundress paired with Salt-Water Retros in red and a traditional woven basket to complete the look. For more dress and flat sandals ideas check out this post.
Jeans and flat sandals outfits

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a pretty top worn with denim jeans and a trusty pair of Salt-Water flat leather sandals. Go for a blouse with some interest, puffy sleeves or a pattern, to balance out the simplicity of the bottom half. We love the big collar on @alicecatherine ’s gingham blouse paired with straight cut dark denim and a pair of Salt-Water Truffle mash-ups. So chic!

We also love @modestmira ’s baggy jeans styled with a simple white T and oversized shirt for a looser, less structured vibe. The mustard Classic Slides bring a pop of colour and form the full stop to the outfit. Check out this previous post on styling denim with sandals for further inspiration.

Jess Cartner Morley, fashion editor at the Guardian, recently wrote ‘if you make one update to your summer wardrobe this year, make it a flat white shoe, because they work with anything and bring a dynamic edge to your look.’
We have eight different styles of sandal available in white – check out the range here. We’re loving this fresh take on summer style from @bubblyaquarius who pairs a sweet white crochet vest with flared jeans and white Salt-Water Originals, some big sunglasses and a summer basket. Perfection.

It’s no wonder this vibrant hue, full of secret meanings and ancient connections, has become one of our bestselling colourways. We have five styles available in our popular bright red and a further five styles in claret, one of our newest shades, a gorgeous dark red burgundy colour. See them all here.
We adore this comfortable flat sandals outfit that @illyanalondon has put together – a relaxed, lightweight floral maxi dress with a pair of red Retros. Have a look at this post on how to style sandals with a maxi dress for more ideas.

The struggle of dressing for the office in summer is real but if you’re looking for comfortable black sandals for work, the Boardwalk is a great option. By sticking to structured leather and avoiding styles that leave your foot too bare, you can still look like you mean business in open toed sandals. Styles like the Retro, the Original and the Shark in black are chic and professional looking whilst still being comfy and keeping your feet cool. All you need to do is make sure the rest of your outfit stays sleek and professional by opting for cool cottons and treating yourself to a perfect pedi like @lydiarhabarber We love the length of the sleeves on her elegant wrap dress and the extra bouncy sole of the Boardwalk will ensure she has a spring in her step!
