When will the dreaded Summer end? This question stares us in the face every single time we leave a too-chill-to-be-healthy Mall, our car, or any place that has a temperature lower than 30 degrees. Instead of letting out a wail every time sweat decides to make its way to our epidermis, why don’t we cherish the weather?
I know it is easier to say this while sitting in an overly under a two-tonne air conditioner, but think of all the pretty summer chappals that you cannot wear during the winter and you might change your mind.
Here are some chappals you absolutely must get your hands on (and feet in) and show them off pronto before winter kicks in!
Chapter 13 has some really unique and pretty pieces that will leave the girly girl in you doing pirouettes! We are in love with these two summery styles.
Boori Phool made intricately with jute and embroidered flowers is enough to add a spring to your step!
Buy them here for Rs 5,035.
The dainty SG Floral Sandal is so delicate, you might feel like treading extra carefully in it. But we have it on good authority that they’re as sturdy as your snow boots (and that might be a mild exaggeration).
Buy these for Rs 4,895.
These simple pewter sandals with ties that can be worn high or low are perfect to show off your pretty little ankles!
They can be found at Charles & Keith for Rs 6,000.
Metallics are still trending, but who knows when the allure of the mirror shine will fade? While it’s going strong, check out these beauties from Mojari.
An easy to wear slip-on with contrasting silver panels crossing over for an elegant look is a wardrobe staple.
Generally, they are available for Rs 1,599 but currently are on sale for Rs 1,199.
Forget iPhone X, these rose gold peshawari chappals are a style statement on so many levels!
Buy these for Rs 1,699 but if you’re quick, you can get it for Rs 1,199.
After Mojari, let’s head to Mochari.
These lovely, subtle, almost Laura Ashley-esque, florals will look pretty with your summery lawns or can even spruce up a basic jeans and t-shirt outfit!
They are available for Rs 2,500 at any Mochari.
A more traditional take on florals, these peshawari chappals would add a tonne of spunk to deep indigo jeans or crisp white cotton dress! Why not throw on a ajrak stole or waistcoat while you’re at it?
You can buy it for Rs 2,800 from any Mochari outlet.
Who doesn’t love a little bit of Truck Art? What’s more, it is hand-made by local artisans, so this is a great way to support your local community!
This colourful pair, crafted on metallic braided leather kolapuris is sure to jazz up any outfit. Get them for Rs 1,699 at Gul Khan on Zamzama, in Karachi, or for an additional Rs 150 have them delivered to your doorstep.
Here’s another pair of flashy kolapuris in leather, hand-painted in a unique fashion, available for Rs 3,900 each at Zari Faisal.
Whatever your style, paint your toes a neon color and take them (your toes) out on a stroll in one of these fun chappals before it’s too late!
