8 Statement Sandals To Put Your Best Foot Forward In The New Year

January is known to be the coldest month of the year. Well, not in Singapore, and given that we don’t have the luxury of layering up and experimenting with style to combat the chill, our first choice of footwear tends to be a pair of sandals. Be it a day out shopping along Orchard Road, for a weekend pool party or, even at the office on Fridays. In interest of updating your collection for the new year, our favourites above.

Slingback flatform sandals by Gucci, S$1,097, via Nordstrom
Comprising of the Gucci’s iconic colours, slip these on with a casual ensemble and you’re sorted. Tartan sandals by Simone Rocha, US$820 (S$1,129), via Ssense
From the tartan soles to the faux pearl detailing, it’s every bit Simone Rocha’s unique spin on femininity — try this with a leather midi skirt and a plain white tee. Embroidered sandals by Charles & Keith, S$46.90
Even with its houndstooth print and floral embroidery, they’re sophisticated enough for the office — provided if you add a dose of gravitas with a black blazer. Furry sandals by Charles & Keith, S$49.90
Let this fuzzy pair be the centre of attention, period. Pool sliders by Balenciaga, US$605 (S$833)
Who said that pool sliders are just for the beach? Go down the streetwise route and pair these lambskin soles with a pair of socks and an oversized T-shirt. Elastic flat sandals by Anacapri, S$78.90, via Zalora
If you’re one who owns a pair too many in black or brown, opt for one in blue instead. Suede sandals by Gianvito Rossi, S$958, via Barneys New York
Add a splash of colour to your beach outfit with these. Pro tip: coat them with a generous layer of water repellent spray beforehand. Snake effect leather sandals by Jimmy Choo, US$556 (S$766), via Matchesfashion
This pair of gold sandals will elevate a casual outfit. We’d suggest an off-the-shoulder top and a pair of jeans, perfect for a barbecue or picnic.
