But didn’t our toddlers wear these? What about our uncles who would pair them with khaki cargo shorts? How can fisherman sandals actually be chic? The chunkier version of the sandals can add a cool, androgynous edge to mini skirts to midi dresses. More subtle and slim silhouettes have that Greek island vacation vibe and can be worn (without looking like a toddler or your Uncle Terry) with shorts and long, flow maxi dresses. They’re also a great canvas for a pop of color.

Ahead, check out 10 of our favorite fisherman sandals of the season.
