Wedges and espadrilles are a classic summer shoe that always seems to be back in style every Summer. These super cute styles are perfect styled with all of your summer dresses and jean shorts. One of my favorite brands for espadrilles is Castañer. I’ve worn mine on repeat both last summer and this one and they have the comfiest soles ever.
These black mesh Castaner wedges are one of my favorite espadrilles this Summer and they’re on sale. If you’re looking for designer wedges, you can’t go wrong with the Saint Laurent Tribute espadrilles which are a classic.

5. Women’s sandals 2022 trends | Heeled mules and open toe sandals
Mules are another shoe trend that’s still going strong from last Summer so time to get your Summer pedicures. These are the white heeled mules I have, which I find run true to size. They’re my go to summer heels for 2022 when I want something a bit lower than my white platforms.
I went for white as it’s such a versatile color but there are so many fun styles and colors around this Summer to be able to create trending monochromatic looks. Plus the heel isn’t too high and is thicker for walking across the grass at parties and the races.

6. Gladiator and strappy sandals
Trending womens shoes for Summer 2022 include gladiator sandals in all lengths. I bought my gladiator sandals in Greece back in 2015 and have been waiting for them to come back in style again. For the most seamless and leg lengthening look with knee high sandals go for tan and neutral colors that won’t cut off your leg line.
For an edgier look the black ankle length and shorter styles give contrast to white summer dresses. What I love about so many of the trending shoes and flats this year is that they’re practical, comfortable and make a statement, they’re not just there.

I have these tan sandals on order as my knee high pair are a bit big to pack for Europe as I’m trying to pack for 5 weeks. Whereas these are much less bulky and perfect for walking around cities during the day so get some air to your feet. These are the cutest trending flats for 2022 to try out this trend this summer.
7. Bright color hued Summer heels 2022
2022 fashion is about as bright and fun as it gets. If you love color now’s the time to wear it. If you’re more into neutrals, shoes and bags are an easy way to add color without wearing it head to toe. Bright color shoes are stunning for summer whether it’s a monochromatic look with a matching set or adding color to a white outfit. This green pair absolutely nails this women’s sandals trend for 2022.
8. Ballet flats
More comfortable trending womens shoes but smarter and more office appropriate than sneakers. It’s not the first or the last time ballet flats will be in style. They’re also set to stick around for Fall as seen at Miu Miu’s Fall Winter 2022/2023 collection.
