If you’ve fallen victim to the city heat, there’s nothing better than escaping to a Carribean island for that perfect summer weather. White sandy beaches, fruity libations and hotels with a view? We say yes to this kind of summer vacation. Choosing a destination is easy, but packing for it is a different story. Shoe junkies will overstuff their carry-on, but the truth is you only need five pairs to navigate your Carribean adventure.

There’s just something so regal about this laidback kicks. If Jay-Z wears them (see: “On to the Next One”), so can we. Sperry is synonymous with top-siders, so we had to go with this brand. The Angelfish boat shoes leave breathing room and the crisp white color will match any of your beachy ensembles.
Steve Madden ‘Anteek’ Sandal, $69.95
These are for the end of the vacation after you’ve spent every night out in heels. Flats can be just as stylish as heels, especially when embellished like these aqua-colored Steve Madden sandals.
Bamboo Elmas-06 Flat Sandal, $15.95
Admit it- you run to Old Navy for the 2 for $5 flip-flop sandal. It’s time to upgrade, Vixens! Just because you’re walking on sand doesn’t mean your feet shouldn’t be adorned in some fly flip-flops. These Bamboo flats are adorable and comfortable.
Stilletos are a must when you’re stepping out. Whether you’re clubbing or going to a romantic dinner, heels will give you legs for days and upgrade any outfit. We love the bright colors on these high heel sandals!
Espadrilles are the perfect median shoe for vacay. They’re not as fancy as a heel, but they’re not as casual as a flat sandal. For some reason, the brown weaving in these wedges remind us of a breezy beach day.
