If you’re not into wearing fancy Birkenstocks and the thought of flip-flops makes you recoil in horror, it might be time to consider the summer’s new alternative: the elegant slip-on sandal. These sleek faux snakeskin ones by Banana Republic are made for lazy weekends when you just want to roll out of bed and slip something on before heading out in search of brunch. And should you want to make weekday mornings just as easy, they also happen to be great as a commuter shoe, too. Try them with your favorite shift dress or better yet, culottes.
Banana Republic Celina Sandals, $88 at Banana Republic.
