These three girl's sandal trends are specially picked to look great all summer -- they'll complement whatever clothes you buy later as the weather warms. Wear them during Spring Break, and if she's not in a huge growth spurt, they may last all summer.
Metallic shoes go with everything, and the freshest looks have something special -- like the super-slick, mirror-quality surface on this Zara sandal, a hologram finish, a new lustrous shade such as pewter, or a fun texture.
DIAL DOWN THE COLOR
Move towards mid-tone and pastel colors -- and avoid the super-bright brights. Toned down multis, purples that play neutral and softened up appliques all look fresh and will go with lots of outfits.
I'M NEUTRAL ON IT
Look like big sister or mom in these sophisticated tan sandals.
Here are the Chelsea boots I crave for myself:

Traditional holiday looks don't have to be boring. Simple, well-placed details transform these classic silhouettes into updated looks that are nowhere near stodgy. New finishes in patent leather, upper patterns done just right, and soft flexible outsoles are just some of the details that make these appropriate attire for your event, trend-right, and comfortable. Look here if you need shoes for traditional portraits, holiday greeting cards, religious services or fancy family gatherings.
I WANNA GROW UP
Got a kid with older siblings leading the way? Or maybe mom and dad are just too hip for words. If so these aspirational styles are just up your alley. These sophisticated looks come right off the designer runways, helping your young one look chic. For girls, modifications like flat soles, and pointy, but not TOO pointy toe shapes make these work. For boys it's wingtips and boots done casual-cool for that boy (or parent) who's looking to make a style statement.
THE KIDS ARE IN TOWN
An edgy aesthetic mixed with cool, casual looks. It's so easy for kids to mix hip, casual shoes with more conservative clothes. Whereas adults just look like we're trying to be ten years younger. Girls can easily wear these boots and sneakers with dresses, and boy's look ultra-cool with these kicks at the bottom of their khakis, jeans or corduroys. These silhouettes are active, comfortable and ready for inside or outdoor play. Look for metallic finishes, black uppers and accents, and thick outsoles. If your holiday get togethers are casual and fun, your kid can pull these looks off.
