100 Strappy Sandal Looks

From Grecian Statement Shoes to Sky-High Stiletto Heels

— September 25, 2014 — Fashion
Strappy sandals are not only designated for summer and are also a favorite during the holidays or tropical vacations that are set in a warm and exotic destination. Whether travelling to a beachside resort, planning a festive New Year's eve bash or just heading out on a Friday night, you can't go wrong when choosing a strappy sandal.

These sultry accessories range from understated gold heels that are perfect for wedding parties or formal dinner dates. In addition to modern classics, this list also includes over-the-top statement styles that are more daring in their aesthetic. These looks are often super-tall or adorned with embellished or feathered details that are sure to turn heads when worn to a club or urban lounge.
