Gucci is a pillar in the fashion industry, well-loved by fashionistas worldwide. Known for fabulous shoes, handbags, and ready-to-wear clothing, the iconic Italian brand continues to be a prominent heavy hitter on the fashion scene.
Alessandro Michele took the helm of the fashion brand as creative director in 2015, and I have been Gucci obsessed ever since. Michele has brought an unmistakable finesse to the brand, breathing new life and commercial success into many facets of the company. In addition to his wildly popular Marmont matelassé handbags, the brand has mastered the design of women’s shoes under his reign.
Michele’s first conquest as creative director was the fur-lined Gucci mules adorned with horse-bit hardware, which he sent down the runway in 2015. Right before our very eyes, a fashion trend was reignited. Mules took the fashion world by storm, with Gucci setting the gold standard while bringing back the popular style. From that initial runway show, Gucci has taken sandals into the stratosphere, season after season.
Now that summer is here, you’ve got to check out Italist’s selection of Gucci sandals for women! I’ve got my eye on quite a few pairs, and I’m willing to bet you do too…they’re just that good.
The Gucci sandals on my radar
If you’re looking to elevate your sandal game this summer, a pair of Gucci sandals is the perfect solution. In true Gucci nature, their sandals hit the mark for trend-setting with eye-catching style, from simple to ornate. Chunky shoes are also all the rage this summer, and Gucci delivers in spades! If you’re searching for a chic pair of platform sandals, look no further than the Gucci sandals for women section on Italist.
In addition to a cool pair of new platform sandals, you should add a quintessential pair of slides to your wardrobe. In tune with this summer’s slide trend, Gucci celebrates this perfect casual summer shoe with a large selection of designs decked out with sparkly and playful crystals. Whether you opt for an ornate look or one made of rubber for the pool, Gucci slides will always make a statement.
What to pair with your Gucci Sandals
Once you’ve picked the perfect pair of Gucci sandals for women (or two or three… No judgment here!), it’s time to wear them. Not sure what to match them with? Try a tank top and a miniskirt with a bold print or textured material. A structured pair of jeans worn with a classic white V-neck—with minimal jewelry or accessories—is also a simple way to showcase your new sandals. If the heat’s too much for jeans this summer, a jean skirt lets you keep your cool and get in on the miniskirt trend (especially if printed skirts aren’t your thing). And to ensure your sandals are the star of the show, you should be good to go with a neutral handbag and a fresh pedicure.
