Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time to dust off your essential pool slides. The only problem? They don’t exactly scream chic. We can’t all rock the Adidas slides like Gigi Hadid does.

Luckily, designers embraced the sandal style this season in a variety of luxe treatments — meaning you’ll surely be the best-dressed, both at the pool or a party.

For five slide sandals outfits, see below:

Texture Play
While comfy, a slide sandal can also instantly add pop to your outfit via texture. Sanayi 313’s tiered raffia style adds instant edge.

Punchy Print
A printed slide offers a more unexpected and elegant take, such as Dolce & Gabbana’s palm print style with embellishment.

Refined Satin
Yes, a slide can be worn for evening. No. 21’s satin bow style is a classy companion to that perfect floral dress.

Statement Shag
Add some punch with Tibi’s colored feather slide. But keep the rest of the look tasteful with a simple tee and similar-hued skirt.
