SUMMER | SLIDES

May 6, 2018

Flats, mainly slides, are taking over the summer fashion trend namely because they are so versatile and go well with any look. The must-have, blogger slide for summer is THIS. The Hermes Oran sandal is the perfect minimal, classic, and effortless style to take to the beach, pair with office attire, slide to brunch, and even take to the streets. However, they’re quite an investment to say the least. Luckily, budget friendly options have been popping up everywhere and in many colors too!

Here is some inspiration on styling these Hermes sandals (and dupes) for summer (see more inspo on my Pinterest account here):

For this vacation-inspired look, I paired my Hermes Oran sandals with a breezy, striped jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters (I’m all about mixing investment and affordable pieces). The wide legged, flowy movement of the jumpsuit is perfect for hot, summer days and I love that I can easily slide in and out of these shoes for the beach, backyard BBQ, or a picnic in the park.

So let’s be honest here for a sec. Are the Hermes Oran sandals worth the price tag? If you have the budget for them, I say go for it. This style has been around for many years and every year they make a comeback. They resell at a pretty decent price if you decide to sell them after a while, or you can always pass it on to your daughter or mother (they’re timeless). As for colors, there are many options and even two-toned sandals, but I eventually decided on the white because I just love how white pops. But the gold piqûres écrues (tan) was a serious contender. And for sizing, I typically wear a size 35, however, there was too much space between the strap and my feet, so I sized down to a 34.5 and the strap fits much better. Overall I am happy with the investment purchase, but I am also glad that there are many budget friendly options as well so that I can buy them in all the other colors and wear them to the beach without having to worry about getting my Hermes sandals ruined!

What are your thoughts on these Hermes sandals? Investment or go for the dupes?

Who doen’t love Herme leather product! I’d say go with the real one if money is not an issue. They are so timeless and high quality. I specially live in flats nowadays, my feet get so hurt from the high heels and I walk a lot in the city. So this is the perfect slides to walk in miles. They look absolutely gorgeous on you. Love the jumpsuit too. So fresh summery look. Thanks for the inspiration.

I’ve been wanting to get those Hermes sandals for a while now!!! They are so versatile and so easy to style with. You can almost style them with anything and they are gorgeous enough not to be rejected at the luxury dining places 🙂 and I know they are super comfy too!!!! This post is making me feeling impulsive and I feel like to go downstairs to get a pair right away ( I live right above a shopping mall with all the designer brands, this is super dangerous ) …..

These slides are a classic and they will be perfect with every spring and summer outfit year after year. I’d seen a few dupes over the last year too, but nothing like these real ones you’ve got! Very chic outfit and I think your decision to get the Hermes ones are definitely worth the splurge. 🙂

Hey love,
How are you? I love this, slides are my fave. During the heat and all of the summer activities they are super comfortable and easy to wear also let’s not forget the fact that they go well with pretty much everything. I adore your jumpsuit, it’s so beautiful and the colors are perfect for the season and are really casual. You look stunning girl, thanks for sharing!

Love a good high low mix! I do love the look of those slides but I need more support (totally flat shoes hurt my feet). I would probably either buy the real thing or skip in completely. All those girls on Insta with their fake GG Gucci (or more like Faux-chi) belts drive me nuts. I don’t mind when something is inspired by designer but a branded copy is a no-go for me.

These sandals have been on my wish list for the longest time, I am always confused to which colour I want them in. Thank you for telling me about the sizing, good to know that you have to go 1/2 size down. And I totally agree with you, they are so timeless and versatile. I really love how you styled yours with that gorgeous striped dress. This is the perfect look for the summer :).

Hi dear,

Such a coincidence that I’m choosing slides for the summer now!
Hermes Oran sandals looks wonderful, and it’s definitely my choice for this summer.
I’d choose brown/tan color for SS ’18:)
