Buying a new pair of sandals each year is no easy feat. From platform to strappy, it can be impossible to know which style will suit you best, with both comfort and style in mind.

Although this year has unexpectedly become the year of the staycation, sandals have still proved to be a big contender when it comes to summer style. Whether we’re frolicking after a few cans of gin at a picnic or adventuring in the fields the Irish countryside has to offer, we still want to look stylish while we do it, right down to the shoes we have on our feet.

So, breaking down the 5 biggest sandals trends from 2020, our fashion editor, Megan Fox, tells us exactly what each style is all about, why we should invest in them, and where exactly to get the best pair.

The Dad Sandal 

What was once the ‘dad trainer’ has since morphed into a sandal, and I can guarantee the latest influx of them on bloggers and fashion guru’s feeds will have changed your opinion on this surprisingly comfortable and practical footwear.
