How often do you get invited to a Summer event and feel unsure about what to wear? Many Summer events require the skillful art of dressing somewhere in between formal and elegantly low key. I call it “Summer chic.”
Let’s face it, you don’t want to be over-dressed or under-dressed.
You want to get it just right. That’s where Ankalia Swarovski crystal sandals are perfect.
They come in either flats or with a little 2cm heel if you prefer that little bit of a lift. Ankalia Sandals are high quality, timeless and handcrafted in Australia. Completing your look and helping you achieve a stylish and an understated chic without trying too hard. And really, skyscraper heels are the wrong look for a less formal event.
Consider the invitation and venue when determining your footwear and heel height.
Keeping your footwear elegantly low-key but with a little wow factor – you can’t go wrong (or feel over-dressed) in a pair of classic leather sandals embellished with Swarovksi crystals. Here are a selection of Ankalia’s gorgeous designs. Do you have a favourite?
