Barely-There Sandals: Fashion's Favorite Shoe of 2019

I got to Los Angeles at a time when the weather did very little to cosign all the wonderful things I read and was told about it. “LA was false advertising” I kept complaining, quite annoyed that I was not welcomed by the bright scorching sun I was promised after merely escaping the cruel cold on the east-coast. People would jokingly say I came with the bad weather with me from New York as a rebuttal. It was raining and gloomy and cold and I was over it.

Finally, the skies have cleared and I get to experience the warm sun on my skin for more than two days at a time. The winter boots are being thrown to the back of the wardrobe and the more lighter and short-length items have started occupying space at the front. Continuing with fashion’s 90s nostalgic obsession, the barely-there (or naked) sandal has been a street style staple and constant feature on instagram and fashion publications ever since the trend hit the SS19 runway in a big way. Fashion outlier Phoebe Philo re-ushered the trend with her nude sandal for her 2018 Resort collection (#OldCeline, Gone But Never Forgotten) and brands like Tibi and The Row followed suit. The thin strap and overall minimal aesthetic gives you the perfect finish for almost any look; whether pairing it with a slip dress, adding chicness to a pant suit or elevating a tee and jeans look; the barely-there sandal is the quintessential versatile shoe.
