Strap On, Strap Off: New Season Sandals To Give Your Outfits A Leg Up

We always love a pair of strappy heels. Not only do they exude a cute ’90s vibe, they are also versatile, sexy, and best of all, they add height. Whether worn with an oversized blazer, a romper, a mini skirt or a maxi dress, strappy sandals are chic, fail-safe options for your ensemble.

Above, our picks.


Saint Laurent Hall bow-detailed suede platform sandals, US$1,149 (S$1556.32) from Net-a-Porter
Channel Saint Laurent’s rocker vibe with these black suede platform stilettos. We love the ankle wrap-arounds which add an elegant yet playful silhouette. Turn heads at the club by dressing this pair with an eye-popping sequin dress. Cult Gaia Jila tortoiseshell-effect vinyl sandals, US$408.33 (S$553.08) from Net-a-Porter
Definitely not your typical everyday strappy sandals, this quirky pair comes with unconventional spherical heels (more picks here) and a tortoise shell pattern on vinyl, and will definitely stand out in any occasion. Aquazzura Milos 105 leather and PVC sandals, US$593.58 (S$804) from Net-a-Porter
This towering creation from Aquazzura ticks all the boxes if you’re looking at getting into the barely-there, transparent plastic trend. It’s sophisticated and unique, with laces that look like their floating. Meant to create the illusion of longer legs, accentuate that further by pairing with a mini skirt. Sophia Webster Chiara mirrored and glittered leather sandals, US$504.75 (S$683.68) from Net-a-Porter
This adorable pair looks like Barbie and Tinker-Bell merged and became a shoe. Sporting the designer’s signature butterfly wings, this pair will add a dash of whimsy into any outfit, and can jazz up even the simplest white tank top and denim shorts combo. We say wear this glittery pair with a simple white dress. Gianvito Rossi Myriam, US$895 (S$1212.28)
Instantly brighten up your summer dress (or any outfit for that matter) with these sunshine yellow sandals from Gianvito Rossi, which recently opened their first store in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands. It’s so cheery, it’ll add oomph to any outfit — even a basic T-shirt and jeans combo. Manolo Blahnik Gigina, S$1,890
Show you mean business with this strong pair of heels that sport a fierce sculptural heel. This pair, which draws inspiration from the late Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancuși, is balanced out by its pretty pink hue. Wear this with a sharp pantsuit to the office. Christian Louboutin Blade Runana, S$1,390
For something fierce AF, look no further than these Christian Louboutins. The 100mm slim heel will instantly add height, and all thanks to the shoes’ nude hue, they will also make your gams look longer and leaner. Zara vinyl sandals with methacrylate heels, S$69.90
Love them or hate them, see-through footwear have always been a hit, and are here to stay. They’re quirky, and make a cool statement. Wear these versatile Zara heels with an embellished T-shirt dress on the weekends. Mango snake-effect strap sandals, S$59.90
Show off your fun side with this pair of snake-effect heels. They’ll serve to contrast a no-nonsense blazer and tailored trousers. Aldo Rokka, S$159
These caged sandals from Aldo are absolutely fiery hot. Finish with an equally fierce outfit of a scoop neck mini dress.
