Authored by Monica Gray
When it comes to putting an outfit together, your shoes matter. Did you know that a staggering 70% of sandal wearers believe that the right pair can elevate even a classic pair of jeans? (Source: Modern Magazine, 2021). There’s nothing worse than splashing your cash on an outfit that makes you look fabulous, only to be let down by uncomfortable shoes that squash your mood and ruin your day. That’s why it’s paramount to find shoes that are not just stylish, but also comfortable and durable — even if you intend to wear them every. single. day.
While you might initially associate sandals primarily with long hikes, around 60% of our customers have expressed their love for pairing them with flowing maxi dresses for a breezy vibe. Think sandals can't extend beyond your usual outdoor gear? Think again. Dive into our guide below to explore our top 3 outfit choices perfect for pairing with our best-selling sandals.
1. Shorts, Sandals, and a T-shirt
Perfect for running errands, doing housework or just meeting up with friends for a coffee or brew, you can’t go wrong with the shorts and t-shirt combo. It’s comfortable, easy to throw on, and socially acceptable for most outings. And nothing compliments shorts and a tee-shirt quite like a comfortable and stylish pair of sandals. I love wearing sandals with t-shirts, mainly because it screams summer and spring weather.
The Sienna Sports Sandal is a no-brainer when it comes to a laid-back and carefree outfit choice. Available in 5 different colors, this sandal is not only ultra-comfortable but stylish, too! You know those sandals that can only be worn for a hike outdoors? The ones that look a little weird when paired with a regular everyday outfit choice? The Sienna Sports Sandal is not that shoe. This sandal is the perfect choice for a chilled and relaxed vibe no matter what you’re into.
2. Sundress and Sandals
Is there anything better than throwing on a comfortable sundress that makes you feel like a million bucks? Sundresses are great for hanging out with friends or going on a fun-filled date with someone you’re seriously crushing over. They look like you’ve put a lot of effort into what you’re wearing but the truth is - they’re easy, comfortable and flattering!
The great thing about sundresses is that they can be played up or down. If you’re heading to a super fancy dinner, you can pair them with a killer pair of heels and have a polished and sophisticated look. But if you’re planning on playing mini-golf or having a bonfire with friends, high heels won’t do the trick. Now’s the time for stylish sandals! Whenever I travel, packing a light summer dress is a must-have item. When I pair it with Viakix sandals, it creates a great going out outfit for meeting other travelers.

With comfortable and stylish sandals, you’re free to enjoy yourself without worrying about blisters, aches and pains the next day.
