We firmly believe that life was made to live in colour, but there’s no denying that the colour you choose can make or break an outfit. Read on to discover the secrets of choosing the perfect colourful sandals that not only suit your skin tone but also spark joy with every step you take.
We're sharing insights into which colours complement different skin tones, and more importantly, we're celebrating the power of personal preference, because there’s no point in wearing a colour you hate (even if you look really good in it).
Ready to embrace the colourful journey? Let's dive in!
The Power of Skin Tone
Everyone’s skin undertone falls into three categories: warm, cool, or neutral.
If your veins appear greenish, you have a warm undertone. This means that earthy tones, such as browns, mustard yellow, orange, and olive-green, will look fantastic on you.
For those with cool undertones (blue or purple veins), opt for colours like blues, purples, pinks, and reds.
Finally, if you have a neutral undertone, you're the most fortunate because most colours will look great on you, so feel free to experiment!
Of course, these are just guidelines - don't be afraid to wear colours that make you feel confident and happy. Embrace your favourite hues and stride into summer with sandals that reflect your individuality.
What Are the Best Colours to Go with Pink?
Fan of pink? You’re not alone.
Pink, with its sparkling notes of innocence, joy, and romance, is a versatile colour that can transform your summer footwear game.
Brighter and darker shades like fuchsia, magenta, and hot pink offer an exhilarating pop of colour to your outfit, while gentler hues like baby pink, rose tints, and pastels blend effortlessly with layers of whites and creams - the possibilities are endless.
For example, you could pair our pale pink heeled mules with a multitude of calm pastels and silken fabrics for an effortless summertime look.
Pink sandals also team up splendidly with a palette of complementary colours. Try pairing them with lime green for a bold and quirky look or with classic white, black, blue, or grey for a refined aesthetic.
How to Style White Sandals?
White sandals are the ultimate summer footwear staple - they're fresh, they're bright, and they can be paired with just about anything in your wardrobe.
The beauty of white is its simplicity, allowing you to experiment with a multitude of colours and prints in your outfits. For a clean, minimalistic look, try pairing your white sandals with an all-white ensemble. This look is classic, elegant and perfect for those hot summer days.
Alternatively, white sandals can help balance vibrant, colourful outfits. If you're sporting a brightly coloured dress or bold prints, white sandals can provide a subtle grounding element to your look.
For a more casual and laid-back vibe, try pairing your white sandals with a relaxed floral dress to create an effortlessly cool ensemble.
And remember, white sandals always look stunning against a summer tan, making your skin glow even more.
How to Style Red Sandals?
Vibrant red is the embodiment of confidence and bold style, a perfect choice for those who wish to make a statement with their footwear.
Whether you’re heading off to a summer wedding or striding along the Costa Del Sol, a fiery scarlet easily catches the eye and adds a touch of excitement to any outfit. To get the most out of your sandals, pair your reds with more neutral tones, such as blacks, whites or greys.
You don’t need to captain a ship to rock a nautical theme. Keep your reds classic by pairing them with a classic white and blue combo. And for a daring yet stylish approach, consider colour blocking by pairing your red sandals with shades of blue or even a bright yellow.
If your style leans towards the more subtle, go for a monochromatic look with varying shades of red. The key is to let your red sandals be the star of your outfit.
How to Style Blue Sandals?
These sandals offer a breadth of styling opportunities due to the spectrum of shades available, from the light, airy pastels of baby blue to the rich, inviting tones of navy. Plus, the anti-shock footbed and slight heel of these classic Fly Flot mules will keep you comfortable all day long.
For a crisp and fresh feel, pair your blue sandals with white or cream - this combination never fails to impress.
When paired with yellow or pink, blue sandals can add a vibrant contrast that's perfect for a summer outfit. Alternatively, for a more sophisticated look, try matching them with darker hues such as greys or blacks.
And let's not forget about denim…Blue sandals and denim are a match made in fashion heaven, offering a chic, put-together look that's both comfortable and stylish. Remember, blue is a universally flattering colour and a great base to build your outfit upon.
