Even if it’s not a Hot Girl Summer or a Summer of Love, summer is a supposedly fun season. But what about a post-pandemic summer? While the dearth of things like 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 Hereu sandals in the day and Area 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 - that is if you haven't booked an imminent getaway already.
