Do any of us really need an excuse to look at sandals? We all know the answer to that, don’t we?

As we start planning our summer holidays after two years of staycations, there’s never been a better time to up our shoe game. We’re absolutely not short of choice either.

As I started researching sandals ahead of the season, there were some I recognised from recent years, but others haven’t been big for a long time.

lilac prada shoes

Sky high platforms, jelly shoes and – arguably summer 2022’s biggest footwear trend – fisherman sandals are making a long-awaited return after years out of the spotlight.

What excites me the most is the variety on this list. If you’re looking to dress up and be bold, you’ll be over the moon to see sky-high platforms trending for SS22, but equally there are so many ultra-comfy styles too such as clogs and towelling slides.

Keep scrolling to see our top picks for the season ahead.
