All the latest fashion trends are pointing us back to places of nostalgia; the 70's, the 90's and most recently: your dad's closet. That's right, the must-have item for the summer is the dad sandal, an evolution of the dad shoe, an intergral piece in the growing 'dad dressing' starter kit (Think oversized retro t-shirts, New Balances, and cargo shorts). And much like the trend's fashionable cousins, athleisure and minimalism, this aesthetic is showing no signs of slowing down.
While dad sandals may not be the most expected trend to emerge on your Instagram feed, it has everything we need to get on board. It's a no fuss style that embraces comfort, versatile in styling and is all around just easy to pull off. Perfectly suitable for all summer activities, athletic styles lend themselves to be worn at the beach, or on a hike while utilitarian styles work for every setting from the office, to the park to rooftop parties. Give this viral trend a try and shop some of our favorite styles below.
