It’s no secret, slides have been one of the hottest shoe trends for the last few years. As someone who loves items that are effortlessly chic and trendy, I love having the ability to just throw them on and be out the door! Slides aren’t going anywhere in 2021, in fact, platform slides are the hottest shoe trend of all!
As someone who is only 5’2 and a quarter (yes, I had to add the quarter!) I love shoes that not only add height but are comfortable too! Platform slides will look great with your favorite distressed denim shorts, a trendy maxi skirt, or casual dress. You can even pair them with your favorite pair of joggers while relaxing at home!
If you’re searching for a trendy pair of 90s inspired platform slides for summer 2020 and beyond, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share a few of the best platform slide sandals in the trendiest colors and prints and tips on how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe.
Must Have Low Platform Slides
We’re still under quarantine here in Northern California, and I’ve been living in comfy, cozy attire while working from home. As someone who has #wfh for years, I live in casual clothing so I have a lot of experience shopping for items that I know I will get a lot of use out of! For starters, low platform slides have instantly become a favorite for summer 2021. As someone who grew up in the 90s, I remember the platform slide sandal trend well. One of my good friends growing up had the quintessential pair by Steve Madden that was so popular then! Do you remember them? I begged my parents for them, but unfortunately, it was a no go! This shoe trend was definitely one of my favorites! How about you?
Here are a few of my favorite low platform slides that are perfect for an afternoon at home or for running errands.
I have been searching high and low for these fab best selling See by Chloe Robin Sandals in cuoio (tan)! They are so popular that they’re nearly sold out. Thankfully, they’re available with free Prime shipping in most sizes! These fab Robin Sandals are the perfect casual sandal for spring, summer, and early fall.

I don’t know about you, but nothing says 90s inspired fashion in my opinion quite like Dr. Marten boots and sandals! I had a pair of Doc sandals that I wore anywhere and everywhere. I was excited to see that they’re making a comeback!
Tie Dye Is A Must For Summer!
It’s no secret, tie-dye was everything in the world of fashion in 2020, and it’s still as popular as ever in 2021! This pattern has been trendy for well over a year now and I’m head over heels in love with it. I have been stocking my closet with trendy tie-dye clothing and I may have just bought a tie-dye throw! One thing is for sure, I’m head over heels in love with these Cady platform sport slides. They are comfy enough to wear around the house, while self-distancing or running errands.
Give me all the leopard print for spring and summer!
When it comes to animal print, leopard print is my favorite! I wear it throughout the year. In fact, I just looked down at my pants and realized I’m wearing my leopard print pants! You know you love a print/trend when you wear it so often that you forget you have it on. 😉 This summer I’m coveting these J/Slides Platform Slide Sandals in leopard! They’re also available in croc-embossed and snake print! I had a tough time choosing just one pair to feature as they’re all fabulous!
Sam Edelman is one of my favorite budget-friendly shoe designers! I have purchased quite a few pairs over the years and wear them religiously. This trendy pair of Sam Edelman Audrea leopard print sandals are a favorite! In fact, if leopard print isn’t your thing, you’ll be thrilled to learn that these sandals are available in other colors as well.

If you grew up in the late 90s, you remember how popular these slides were! As I mentioned earlier, I begged and pleaded for a pair but was quickly denied!

Nothing says Fendi in my opinion quite like the legendary Carrie Bradshaw of the hit show “Sex In The City” in the 90s and early 2000s!
