Cool footwear for a hot summer

Every woman will vouch for the fact that the first thing that they notice about a person are their shoes. Little do they know, the same goes for most people as well. So it is fair to say that to leave a lasting first impression, a little more attention should be given to what you don on your feet. With summer coming, upgrade your closet with shoes that are not only comfortable for the hot and humid weather, but also equally stylish.

Slip-on slide sandals

Slip-ons are great for days when you barely have time to get ready because you can just slip them on as the name suggests with no trouble of strapping on belts. But since slip-ons come in various designs, your style statement will not be compromised. You can get your own pair of slip-ons from La Mode and from Noir Fashion.


'Barely there' strapped heels

These versatile heels can be worn with most outfits from shirts and kurtis to kameezes and saris. You can get these heels in different heights depending on your desired comfort factor. These heels are not too flashy for office wear, yet chic enough for fancy dinners. So they can be your choice of footwear on days you need to attend an event from work.

Zaar BD has a gorgeous collection of these strapped heels in many different colours and heel sizes and shapes. You may also find them at Noir Fashion, Apex, and of course Bata.


Peep-toe mules

Mules are currently trending worldwide with fashion bloggers and celebrities styling them with their daily street wear. Even though mules are not the most pleasing to the eyes, they can flatter your outfit and help you make a bold style statement. The open back and toe will keep your feet cool in the hot summer days. Pair them with casual denims and shirt, or with a kurti to make the streets your own runway.

You can find mules of your choice at Apex, Bata, La Mode and Zaar BD.

Half loafer shoes

If you love loafers but dread sweaty feet, worry no more. Half loafers are in style and not only can you pull them off with outfits that are meant to be worn with shoes but also enjoy the summer breeze on your feet. Half loafers look great with western outfits and with dresses and abayas.

La Mode BD has designer half loafers that are up for grabs.



Summer is all about bright colours and designs and juttis reflect that. The perfect pop of colours and intricate designs on juttis can make you truly feel the essence of summer. If you are worried about the rising temperatures, you can opt for half juttis that are open in the back. Juttis look impeccable when styled with kameezes, kurtis or fatua dresses.

You can grab a pair from Needle Bee, Monroé and La Mode BD.

An outfit is not complete without the right shoe. So this summer let your shoes keep you cool.
