Singapore is basically sandal weather all-year round. Three sandal trends could be making it BIG this year. Which one would you be adding to your shoe collection?


GLAM ‘MANDALS’ (MAN SANDALS)

Pretty or man-repelling? Here are three reasons to love the ‘mandal’: 1) It’s SO easy to slip on and off; 2) They’re super comfortable; 3) They’re getting prettier as the seasons go by. Designers have added bolder patterns, clear straps, and even bows!

LADYLIKE GLADIATOR SANDALS

Yes, gladiator sandals are back – and girlier than ever! They look less brutish, less gladiator warrior-esque, more ladylike. Think super-thin straps snaking up your calf.

FANCY FLATFORMS

The new flatforms are getting a fancy update! Lots of thin straps and a more diverse colour palette. The best bit about this shoe trend? It doesn’t matter what height you are – ANYBODY can pull this off. Ankle straps help slim down the ankles and give the illusion of slimmer legs.
