Dad Sandals for Spring but Made Fashion
Spring has officially sprung and these dad sandals are just what you need to add the extra pep to your step.| May 11, 2020
The boyfriend jean. The boyfriend shirt. The boyfriend sweater. The boyfriend blazer. You probably have either claimed ownership of one if not more of these pieces from an actual boyfriend (because what’s your is mine, babe) or bought clothing of a similar oversized fit. We’re all no stranger to the borrowed from the boyfriend aesthetic but that of the other man in our lives…ehh, not so much.
When dad sneakers made its fashion debut two years ago, it had the crowd split. You either loved it or loved to hate it. In the past couple of months, the chunky soled trainers have mostly retired from the limelight. Can we get an Amen? For Spring, we’re still digging into the dad’s footwear arsenal but we’ve moved onto a far more likeable counterpart. The dad sandals – THE strappy flat sandals your dad (and perhaps, grandad) wear around the neighbourhood.
By now, you must have seen the Chanel renditions, from the classic black pair that’s closest to the ones from your dad’s footwear collection to others painted in sprightly hues of pastel, everywhere on Instagram. And unlike its sneaker predecessor, it’s safe to say that the dad sandals have won over the favour of most. Whether you’re a minimalist, girly girl or somewhere in between, there’s bound to be a pair that appeals to you in the list we’ve curated for you. Let us know which ones have your attention!
