Luxe to Less: The Revival of Square-Toe Sandals

Show your edge with the 90s’ nostalgia square-toe sandals.

Once again, square-toe sandals have made a comeback this summer - proving their quirk and flexibility. After a major moment in several TV shows like Friends and Sex in the City in the 90s, their heat in the fashion race has never gone down. Square-toe sandals will promise to be a foot-flattering and trendy addition to your wardrobe staple for every budget.

It would be a big mistake not to mention Bottega Veneta – the brand that revived the square-toe sandals from the 90s in 2019.

Square toe has become the brand’s signature silhouette, making an appearance on various runways, Instagram and famous events.

There is something empowering yet elegant in Bottega Veneta sandals. Everything is kept subtle to let the square toe be predominant and loud.

The barely-there leather straps embrace the foot, defining the frame and supporting the ankle and arch.

The design of these sandals is classic and delicate, suitable for both day and night look. For our Luxe outfit, we style it with a mini dress from 3.1 Phillip Lim – casual but coming with a little twist.

The dress is designed to look like 2 pieces – white jersey top and a beige skirt connected by a folded waistline. A black leather bag with gold detail matching with gold accessories is a perfect complement to the outfit.

They can work elegantly with a classic little black dress for a night-out look.

Going to a party? Add to the look a nice festive dress and they will work out just fine!

The flexibility of these sandals is for sure a big bonus point!

For the less look, Staud is the place to go – well known for their high-end fashion with a more accessible price range.

The brand is a harmonic combination of boldness and femininity. Staud’s Frankie Ruched Sandals hold the perfect example of both factors.

The pair has the feminine element with the dual ruched leather straps yet shows its boldness and quirk in the square-toe silhouette.

The chunky block heel radiates daring energy and also offers comfort for wearers. The slip-on form is a bonus point for casualty and convenience.

This pair of sandals is a great choice for a casual but not-so-boring look. And to make the sandals the star of the outfit, we’d like to keep things simple.

A matching colour one shoulder top and blue high-rise wide leg pants work beautifully together.

We can not forget to finish off the look with a belt and a pair of trendy sunglasses to refine the look.

This pair of sandals from Staud is definitely perfect for you to play around with different items and colours for different looks, like a floral dress with the pair will complete a soft and graceful look.

With this pair, we are going retro and trendy at the same time.

Platform heels are coming back with the dopamine dressing fashion movement. And the sage green colour is just the right tone to light it all up.

Square toe and lace up are also there to make a statement to this look.

To style up the ASOS sandals, we pair them with a leather skirt and ruched shirt.

A green beaded necklace adds to the playfulness of the look.
