The shoes you should kick it in this summer, based on your zodiac sign
Now that Memorial Day has arrived, we can finally embrace summer with open arms and bare toes. As the temperature soars, we’re kicking our leather booties to the side in favor of some lighter shoes, strappy sandals, and open-toed heels. Whether you’re the type to find one solid pair of slip-ons and wear them til the season ends or whether you tend to flaunt a new pair every week, there’s a summer shoe style you’re bound to love. If you’re not sure what pair to buy, though, you can consult the stars for some shoe guidance that will speak to you on a celestial level.
Astrologer Lisa Stardust tells HelloGiggles that each zodiac sign has its own style preference—and that definitely applies to the shoes you’ll be strutting in this summer. Here’s her take on what pair likely appeals to you most, based on your sun sign.
