How To Convince Your Feet That Summer Is Almost Here

Without engaging in any of that rubber sandal business, that is. Be better than the rubber sandal!
|

Living in the tropics where we virtually have no seasons, we tend to take advantage of the slightest dips in weather. It’s 24 degrees Celsius, you say? Let me grab my leather jacket. We also like to stick it to the weather man and wear knits on a regular 30-something degrees Celsius day. Seasons? Hah, we don’t need them. We create our own seasons!!! (It should be known that the air-conditioning in Singapore is infamously cold, so wearing knits isn’t really that ridiculous if you’re going to be indoors a lot.)

But with the plethora of little basket bags and edgy-meets-sweet floral dresses we’ve been seeing lately, we’re starting to give in to the “If you can’t beat them, join them” mentality. Also, because heat stroke is a real thing. As is sweaty underarm patches.

If you’re a weather anarchist and the whole idea of giving in to summer is foreign to you, start by convincing your skin that the sun’s out. Then, dress thy body accordingly. Sundress, t-shirts, cut-offs. Don’t forget the sunglasses.

Now, hold up a second before you reach for those rubber flip-flops. We know they’re comfortable and we know they exist to give your feet unparalleled ventilation on a sweltering day. But you know what they also are? Rubber flip-flops. Up the ante this summer, we say, and do it with kicks that not only look super summery, but can also take you from day to night without breaking a sweat. Our top pick? You really cannot go wrong with slip-on mules.
