​Summer Guide to Dressing on the Voyage

How to maintain sartorial flair and comfort from sun-up to sundown in a new locale.

The easiest way to nail your summer style? Sliding into a pair of this season's must-have sandals. Whether you’re going overseas or keeping it stateside, we’ve curated our favorite silhouettes designed to help you seamlessly transition from the airport to the beach and from sightseeing to oceanside dining. Your travel wardrobe will benefit from simple options that mix and match with myriad garment choices, keeping your luggage light and your looks on point throughout your stay. From Beautifeel, we bring you the, sophisticated Elise: an open-toe sandal with a whimsical spirit. Mephisto’s Lise is a wedge shoe with understated appeal.

Beautifeel Elsie Black at Hanig's Footwear

The Elsie arrives in two versatile looks, both priced at $325. The black option features two scalloped suede bands across the foot with Velcro closures and a buckled slingback ankle strap with gunmetal hardware. The blush edition leads with a combination of patent leather and suede on the upper in a modern color-block look. Both versions are fitted with leather interiors, arch-supportive footbeds, and cylindrical heels for feminine height. Merging fashion and function, the Lise is constructed with a metallic blue band and shock-absorbent Soft-Air midsole technology, which reduces stress on the joints, vertebrae, and the spine from walking on hard surfaces. A signature wordmark is imprinted on the cushioned footbed, authenticating the look. The slightly curved cork wedge heel is supported by a treaded, full-length rubber outsole for durability and traction.

The Mephisto Lise and Beautifeel Elsie are ideal options to take along for warm-weather excursions. We love Elsie’s refined yet youthful aesthetic for a romantic dinner. Team the blush with a slim-fit t-shirt tucked into a printed pencil skirt that hits just below the knee. Be sure to accessorize with a woven straw bag and stud earrings. Pair the black with a flowy, midi-length dress in a bright hue layered by a boxy blazer for a surprising take on the menswear-inspired trend. We recommend opting for a laid-back, girly look when slipping into the Lise. Combine it with high-waist, flared jeans in a light wash and a one-shoulder cropped top for a retro feel. A silk headscarf and tote bag complete the styling. Tuck this sandal into your beach bag to wear straight from the pool. Your cover-up can double as a chic maxi top over denim shorts and your bathing suit. The possibilities are endless with these two summer-ready sandals with their distinctly different personalities!
