What is a summer wardrobe without an espadrille? Completely incomplete, if you ask me. Espadrilles, which began as footwear for peasants, are not only super popular, but extremely comfortable, functional and trendy. I rounded up the 6 best candidates (and that wont break your bank!) for the perfect summer espadrille.
The Seychelles Espadrille Wedge
These wedges have the traditional espadrille woven bottom paired with a zebra patterned upper, peep toes (to show off your pedicure) and an ankle strap to keep them on your feet. They would go perfectly with a black maxi and a big summer hat.
BCBG Max Azira Makala Espadrille Sandal
These darling wedges offer a more nighttime appropriate look with a metallic finish above a woven wedge. The intricate design of the metallic upper offers draws a little more attention to your feet then a traditional espadrille. These are perfect for a hot summer night on the town.
Hunter ‘Adler’ Espadrille
Not all espadrilles have to be accompanied with a big heel. These offer a look more appropriate for a day on a boat or a boardwalk. The striped canvas gives a nautical vibe for your fun-filled days on the water.
MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Meg’ Open Toe Espadrille
While you probably wouldn’t take these to the beach, they would work perfectly in a hot office during your summer internship or job. They are a more refined espadrille, that gives a professional feel without subtracting the feeling of summer. You can pretend you are at the beach while you are making copies all day.
Tory Burch ‘Karissa’ Espadrille
These are the trendiest espadrilles by far. Instead of a massive platform to give you a arch-ache all day, these resemble elevator shoes. They give you a little extra height, without a pain in your foot. The nautical vibe also makes them easy to pair with a number of outfits, and could be easily dressed up or down.
Women’s Xhilaration Teresa Espadrille Wedge
I have seen these wedges all over Pinterest, and I am dying to have them in the grey/yellow combination. They are super cheap, and can give a dull outfit a pop of summer color.
