Even if it’s not a Hot Girl Summer or a Summer of Love, summer is supposedly a fun season. But what if it’s due to be a Summer of Uncertainty? Are they fun? Well, given the fact they’re ‘uncertain’, we don’t know - these are ‘unprecedented times’ after all. While the dearth of holidays and festivals may make the whole enterprise of summer seem like an inevitable failure, one thing we can still find success in is our summer wardrobes.
If boots are the moon in our sartorial solar system, sandals are the sun. Whether you exist solely in a single pair of Birkenstocks during summer or experiment with beaded Jil Sander flip flops in the day and Staud mules at night, a summer without sandals is a summer without a point. This year, if nothing else, there is more time to find exactly the right pair (or pairs) for you.
Indeed, viewing summer 2020 as a dress rehearsal for summer 2021 could be an excellent coping mechanism.
