Boat shoes for the summer are the best shoes for to get that laid back, casual look. Designers came out with many styles and colors this season. Boat shoes are classic shoes that instantly can give your outfit a preppy edge.  You easily can pair these with simple shorts or a black skirt. Here are some good picks for this summer.

Sperry Topsider

Sperry Topsider is primarily known for its boat shoes and its variety of styles. My favorite is the Cloud Logo Authentic Original 2-Eye. The stripes give this classic boat shoe a new, fresh look. Stripes are also in this season. This enhances your preppy look because of its simplicity. Pair this up with some red shorts and button down shirt, and you’ll have the ultimate preppy look.


Lacoste is a known for its polo shirts but the Karen boat shoe gives this designer a new edge. This is a simple boat shoe, and easily is paired with anything you wear. Slipping into these shoes gives you the benefit of feeling stylish without trying too hard. If you’re into buying Lacoste clothing, I highly recommend buying this shoe to match it with your Lacoste clothes.

Tommy Hilfiger

The Tommy Hilfiger boat shoe brings a new twist to the classic. It combines the latest trend of color blocking to the boat shoe. This style combines navy, beige and pink perfectly giving a feminine and preppy look. You can wear this shoe for a walk or to a casual party.

Rock and Candy

The Rock and Candy Boatie is a simple, classic approach. The dark brown leather can be paired easily with anything you wear. This style comes in variety of colors though like gold, navy and gray. Pair this with a summer dress, and you will look casual and cool.
