This summer is blazing with hot dress sandals that will look great on your next beach getaway!
Flip flops are a must for a summer vacation, but if you want shoes that don’t look like house slippers, this season’s cute dress sandals boast low maintenance materials like jelly synthetics that will look stylish with your latest resortwear without getting destroyed in the sand.

Whether you’re jetting off to an all-inclusive resort or simply driving out to a nearby coastline, incorporating some glamour into your next beach getaway is a fun and easy way to spice things up (along with getting some great shots for Instagram!)

This gladiator-inspired sandal is an elevated classic, adorned in details such as chic golden buckles and a trendy cross-over strap. Pair with a breezy floral maxi dress for a beachy and bohemian ensemble.
Bring on the glamour! This metallic t-strap sandal will add a gorgeous touch of bling to any outfit, allowing you to go straight from the beach to a nice oceanside dinner effortlessly.
With stylish straps and shiny gold details, the Marly sandal is simple yet fashion forward. Colorful sandals with metallic details tend to give off a fabulous resort vibe, with this piece being no exception. You can choose to have these be your main pop of color in your wardrobe or take your color story up a notch by pairing them with an equally vibrant floral sundress.
On top of the gorgeously blinged-out decor of this sandal, they’re also quite cozy! Light padding lines the sole of these beauties, making them perfect for comfort-driven fashionistas.
Infuse some sassiness into your look with a bold leopard print sandal. Pair with a casual luxe black mini dress and a swipe of red lipstick for a seriously fierce getup.
Metallic straps adorned in sparkly rhinestones make these Chinese Laundry sandals an ultra elegant pick. Paired with a bikini, bright swim cover, and oversized sunglasses, the Gweneth metallic dress sandal is perfect for a glamorous beach getaway.
Lace-up styles have been hot for years now, making it a promising style selection when it comes to dress sandals. A pretty metallic sheen elevates this piece from standard day wear to a more luxurious sandal, making the final result an on-trend sandal versatile enough for both day and night ensembles.
The Lerry sandal has a classy, nautical-inspired appearance to it and is thus perfect for a beach getaway. Adjustable buckles ensure that your fit is spot on while the white and gold color combination dress up the sandal. These would look amazing with a chic romper, a floppy hat, and some gorgeous sunglasses to match.
