Style 101: 2 Chic Patio-to-Party Looks

Long, lazy summer afternoons segue so easily into evening that it’s often impossible to change clothes between the two. Who wants to spend time rummaging through the closet when you could be sipping a margarita poolside? We certainly do not, which is why we rely on fashion and shoes that can go the distance–from brunch in the sunshine to soirees under the stars. We have styled two such looks, starring our boho Kira sandal and chic Fairley slide below: Both feature heels that won’t be liabilities in the backyard, and both are sure to make a statement all on their own. Ready to plan your next weekend, patio-to-party? Keep scrolling.

We put a laid-back spin on our sophisticated Fairley slide by pairing it with an equally minimalist wardrobe and accessories–plus a fringed handbag for a boho twist. Fairley’s snakeskin-printed upper dresses up a cotton frock, while its stacked block heel plays well on grassy lawns. When cocktail hour rolls around, let a sleek black bikini peek through gauzy fabric for a glam twist.

A kaftan embroidered with glamorous gold thread and gold tassel earrings add chic, jet-setter style to our global-inspired Kira sandal. Retro round sunglasses and a straw bucket bag finish this haute hippie look with polish that will last from high noon until long after the sun sets.
