With the amount of time I spend scrolling on IG, it comes as no surprise that I involuntarily gather an enormous amount of intel on the most current trends according to the “It Girls”. Shoes are a favorite of mine, and you’ll often see my name next to a “where are your shoes from!!” or “those shoes wow” comment on any given picture where someone has a pair of relatively exciting shoes on.
I know people share that adoration, whether you admit it or not. I also know that those shoes we see on our favorite influencers are often equivalent to multiple car payments and/or rent. We can’t all get the new Altuzarra heels gifted to us, after all. To make this seasons trends more accessible, we’ve gathered up the most popular styles of sandals for this summer, all for under $200.
The Elevated Flip Flop
Say bye to your Old Navy 2-for-$5 rubber thongs, because flip flop silhouettes are being upgraded with leather, suede, and even heels.

Botegga Veneta and Wandler both debuted this geometrical style in their new collections, and while they’re beautiful, they’re expensive AF.
