This Sandal Trend Is Here To Stay, Here's How To Style Them


Sandals are a girls' best friend, especially in the heat of summer. With so many new shoe trends this year, there's one style that never ceases to be on top of every must-have list during warm weather months.

The wrap-around sandal has always been a top choice with endless color options and variations, however, during this climate the short block heel has become the hottest of them all. Although our calendars aren't as booked and busy as years prior, there are still opportunities to spice up our lives with comfort still being key. The short block heel is a great alternative for those not ready to step into the tallest of heels but live for a few extra inches when given the opportunity.

Take a look at how I styled my new wrap-around sandals for warm weather looks like no other.

A Night Out

Even as we've been forced to make major adjustments to our social lives, there are ways to enjoy a cute night out and look comfy-chic while doing so. As businesses move outdoors in a number of states, what a perfect excuse to get dressed for a candle-lit dinner on the balcony of your favorite restaurant while enjoying the starlit sky. Pair a snake print wrap-around sandal with ultra-sleek leather shorts and a criss-cross crop top underneath an oversized button-down for an added layer of warmth for the night's cool breeze. Complete this look with a neutral-toned mini bag for an even better attempt at looking your comy-chic-est.

Such a Vibrant Thing

If you don't already own an all-black wrap-around sandal, now is your chance to witness the power of chic simplicity. Paired with a vintage mini-skirt along with a lightweight hand tied button-up long sleeve, black is a satisfying contrast to this contemporary spin on a 70s-inspired look. When wearing solid-colored sandals, find a way to incorporate eye-catching prints for even more outfit fun.

For the Contemporary Woman

Since my favorite aspect of every outfit is color, I decided to pair my white and black snakeskin wrap around block-heeled sandals with an unconventional color palette. Pale yellow trousers along with a brown DIY one shoulder top adorned by a silver chain belt is a summer look chic enough for the modern-day Khadijah James. Whether you're taken or living single, this conservative yet stylish look is one for the books.

'Love Island USA' Star JaNa Craig On The Reality Of Black Women On Dating Shows

Love Island USA just wrapped up its sixth season, and it has been the talk of the town. According to Nielsen, it's the No. 1 show on streaming, proving it's just as entertaining as the UK version. One of the reasons this season has been successful is due to the authentic relationships formed between the islanders in the villa.

You have the sisterhood between Serena Page, JaNa Craig, and Leah Kateb, aka PPG, and the real relationship moments between couples like Serena Page and Kordell Beckham, who were named the winners of this season. The other finalists include Leah Kateb and Miguel Harichi, Nicole Jacky and Kendall Washington, and JaNa Craig and Kenny Rodriguez.

While JaNa made it to the finale with her boo Kenny, her journey in the villa was far from perfect. Viewers saw the Las Vegas native get her heart stomped on a few times after many of her connections didn't work out.

At one point, it even looked like she was getting kicked off the island. While she had a lot of support from people watching the show, it was clear that she was in a position that many Black women on reality dating shows find themselves in: not being desired.
