brush off your bongos and point your feet towards the nearest drum circle because this summer's shoe trends verge on hippie-dippie. see also: comfortable, 70s, man repelling and my favourite term from the french—jolie-laide. yes, it's the summer of pretty-ugly shoes, which bodes well for savvy travelers, who are always searching for packable, comfortable, stylish footwear. so, ladies AND gentlemen, grab a kombucha tea, settle in and check out this summer's trends. {i promise i don't mention the return of tevas or shower sandals, but they're ba-aaack...}

trip styler tips: try narrow-width birkenstocks for a slimmer silhouette. remember that there will be breaking-in time, so wear them around the house before you take them on vacation. finally, socks and sandals are no longer a fashion faux-pas—when done well. try the style with rolled boyfriend jeans or a boxy dress and contrasting or printed socks.
