While it’s not the first choice of footwear when it comes making a sartorial statement, a well designed pair of sandals will keep you on trend in the hot summer weather – in the case of Singapore, all year round. Sandals are definitely a better alternative then the sloppy rubber Havaianas, or worst Crocs (which no readers of this blog should ever be caught in one, ever!!!). In anycase, it is still important to note that sandals are not meant for every occasions, so be very mindful of dress codes to avoiding being turned away at a fancy restaurant – even if it’s any pair of these gorgeous sandals below:
