Top Picks for 2013

By

Whether you prefer classic styles or funky, trendy designs there are loads of sexy sandals to choose from for 2013. For a look at some of the season's hottest, be sure to check out my top picks, listed below.

Pour La Victoire 'Valen' - Sexy Dress Sandals

There is a fine line between sexy and over the top, and it's relatively rare to find a pair of dress sandals that are "hot," while still being sophisticated and classy. If you've been searching for just such a pair of sandals, congratulations, you just found them.

Ideal for taking you from day to night, these gorgeous sandals feature medium-wide straps and a substantial ankle band, both of which are dotted with gold-tone hardware. The 4.5" heels are definitely too high for anyone but the most seasoned of high-heel wearers, but they're not quite as bad as some because they're wedges.

Available in black and tan, these shoes ring up right at $300 per pair.

Schutz 'Charley-Louise' - Sexy High Heel Cage Sandals for Women

Cage sandals have made a bit of a return this season, and I can't imagine a sexier way to jump on the trend than with these high-heeled wonders from Schutz.

Featuring 4" heels knotted, woven uppers; and double ankle strap buckles, these sandals look great in black or oyster, and either color would be great for jazzing up a mid-length skirt or dress. If you have the body (and the nerve) for it, you could also pair these killer sandals with a pair of shorts.

Steve Madden 'Lipsrvce' - Sexy Sandals for Day or Night

These stylish sandals manage to pack a lot of sex appeal into one sophisticated and versatile package. Their simple styling allow them to easily transition from day to night, and they're classic enough that they won't look dated anytime soon.

Available a multi-shade blush, or a bone version, these sexy sandals would look fabulous with mid-length and shorter skirts and dresses.

Jimmy Choo 'Legend' - Sexy Designer Sandals

With luxe suede uppers; gunmetal piping; and a design that would make even the least attentive person you know sit up and take notice; these Jimmy Choo sandals have certainly earned their "legend" name.

They'd be ideal for a night out on the town, though after paying nearly $1000 per pair, you might not be able to afford one. But if shoes of this caliber are in your budget, then why not also check out the sand version, which offers a completely different vibe, but is every bit as notable.

JustFab 'Eden' - Affordable and Adorable Wedge Sandals

Fortunately, you don't have to spend a thousand dollars to get a pair of sexy sandals. In fact, these wedge sandals from JustFab won't even set you back $60 -- but they look like they'd cost a lot more.

Available in this trendy coral shade, or a more versatile and timeless black, these pretty wedges would be great with anything from shorts to skirts, and dresses to jeans.

Ted Baker 'Lissome' - Sexy and Unique Sandals

If you're after something a little different, but you aren't looking for anything too trendy, you may want to have a look at these colorful dress sandals from Ted Backer.

Available in green, pale metallic pink, or black, these shoes feature chunky 3" heels that give them a definite 60's mod vibe, without being too retro. And they're a great example of non-stiletto, mid-height sandals that are sexy and attention-getting without being dangerous or ridiculous.

Call it SPRING 'Maudelene' - Cute and Sexy Wedge Sandals

I think that a lot of us women tend to think in terms of shoes being either "cute" or "sexy," ask most guys, and they'll tell you that cute can be sexy -- granted, not all forms of cute, but you know what I'm saying.

Dress-casual sandals like these are adorable, but because of their mid-height wedge heels; their feminine silhouette; and their open toes, they're kind of sexy as well -- but not so sexy that you couldn't wear them to the office. Two birds, one stone. I like that.

DV by Dolce Vita 'Delancey' - Flat and Sexy Sandals

Think flat or low heeled sandals can't be sexy? Think again. The trick is in finding the right ones. When it's sex appeal you're after, banish all thoughts of sturdy bands and sporty features from your mind, and look for delicate straps and exotic or glamorous embellishments. Available in turquoise, tan or brown these bead-embellished thong sandals are a great example of a sexy flat sandal. Pair these bohemian sandals with shorts, capris or a casual short skirt or dress, and the look is super-hot.

For a more laid-back vibe, try them with your favorite maxi.
