These are the only shoes we’ll be wearing this summer…
When it comes to choosing the best sandals for summer, the Chanel dad sandals are hard to beat. The chunky, quilted design divided people at first, however, soon the iconic shoe was all over our Instagram feeds.
Yes, they look a little like something that our dad would wear and yes, they come with Velcro straps, but there is no denying that they make a serious fashion statement. Plus, they look super comfortable.
They can pretty much be styled with anything, however, not only are they hard to get hold of, but they could set you back a small fortune. If you don’t feel like spending your life savings on the stylish sandal, not to fear, as the high street have some super affordable alternatives for you to shop.
We’ve rounded up our favourites, and will definitely be adding a pair to our baskets ASAP. For more summer fashion inspiration, don’t forget to check out our guides to the best summer dresses and the best basket bags. Happy shopping…
