Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue

This summer the strappy sandal was a must have accessory, the more straps the better. This fall it seems as though designers are a little loathe to let go of the sandal which seems a little nuts to me since I live in the snowy tundra but then again I’ve seen teens sporting flip flops while wading through a couple inches of snow. To keep the sandal look seasonal the designers have come up with the bandage sandal and are touting it in full force for fall 2009.

The bandage sandals on Kylie Minogue above are a nightmare version of this style trend as they’re quite literal. A better way to go is to select a pair of bandage sandals with wide straps that look “heavier” than the summer strappy sandals but not like you’re literally wearing bandages on your feet.

The bandage look is becoming so popular that there are even bandage style boots hitting the market which seem to be sort of a hybrid between sandals and boots, perhaps the new “bandals” anyone? In fact, the latest nonsensical boot trend, the open toe boot may actually be a bandal now that I think about it.
