While slipping on a pair of flip-flops or sandals every day during the spring and summer seasons is the bee’s knees in our book, you gotta admit… The casually-cool-yet-classically-chic demeanor of a pair of espadrilles is unbeatable. What was once only a flat shoe worn by the likes of peasants has become a warm weather staple for both men and women alike. Wondering why this trend has become such a coveted repeat offender? Well, when a shoe works so well with the dresses and the denim pieces in our lives, we can’t help but revert back to that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
C’mon, what other shoe can instantly transport you to a serene sailboat, coasting along the Mediterranean, with Zac Efron by your side? Okay, so maybe you don’t dream in nautical like we do; no biggie. These jute soled babies can be worn for a plethora of other occasions too, like an outdoor summer wedding or those casual trips to the farmers’ market every week. And if you need a little outfit inspiration, just take a gander at our street styled ladies above. Now do you get the picture? We thought so.
Whether you’re actually getting away or strictly staying poolside during these haute days to come, remember: what’s on your feet totally matters. And, girl, don’t be discouraged. Whether you fancy flat or wedged, printed or plain, there’s a pair of ‘drilles out there for everyone.
