It’s time to get ready for summer! If you’re not quite there yet, these raffia platform sandals will help you take the plunge into more unconcerned days. Opening Ceremony’s mix of daisies, stripes, wood, and color feels just like a warm tropical day. Picture it: yummy cocktails on a carefree afternoon of pure relaxation.
The black-and-tan raffia so closely resembles a basket, the effect is at once odd and comforting – I love the impact it packs. The distressed platform and chunky heel adds to the overall effortless vibe; something about a monumental heel like this says good times are on the way.
And then there’s the Opening Ceremony twist. Known for their directionally quirky style (not to mention creative collaborations), I’m thinking a bit of the inspiration for these sandals is pure Drew Barrymore in the early-to-mid-nineties, when she was a wild child with daisies in her hair. These shoes are just as fun and naughty as she was. On Ssense for $660.
Pair with: Invent a wildly playful mix with bright-yellow gingham. Claudia Schiffer’s fine-knit silk and linen-blend dress has a relaxed shape that speaks of weekend fun. On Net-a-Porter for $500.
