Although we had another period of disheartening rain and thunder, summer isn`t over yet as we are once again graced with lovely sun and warm temperatures. There are still festivals taking place across the country too and if you`re jetting off on holiday, espadrilles make the ideal shoes for comfort and practicality. You`ll be pleased at how versatile they can be as well so team them with your favourite denim separates or cute summery dresses.
When espadrilles first came back into the fashion spotlight designs were kept fairly simple as if to test the waters. Black, white and navy were the basic colours to make an appearance not only for women but for men too. Once people realised their stylish appeal though things were taken up a notch and for this summer the trustworthy canvas shoe has been given a radical makeover – and fashionistas are loving them!
Florals and Aztec prints plus bold colours have been injected into the typical slip on espadrille to give women more choice, fitting in with the summer trends. But it`s not just bright colours and statement patterns that have upped the game of the staple shoe! New shapes and styles have been introduced into the espadrille world including slingbacks, sandals and even ankle boots. These exceptional designs widen the wear-ability factor showing that these shoes are no one trick pony.
Don`t let your pair of espadrilles get lost in the seemingly vast expanse that is your wardrobe – give them a new lease of life this season and let these revamped casual shoes take centre stage for the rest of the summer.
