There’s something special about espadrilles that makes you feel like you’re strolling a ritzy European coastline, even if you’re just padding down the land-locked sidewalk of a big city. With their rope-like, woven soles and sandal-inspired shape, espadrilles are a beautiful way to nod to the nautical trend without going all-out beachy.
Swapping out sneakers for a pair of canvas espadrilles instantly elevates a weekend ensemble — opt for wedges, and you’ve got an outfit that can easily transition from day plans to a casual dinner date.
And don’t think these shoes are only for beach-bumming around. Styles with bright hues or fun finishes (ahoy, glitter!) can give your going-out ensemble a playful new dimension. Beneath a flirty wiggle dress and glistening bangles, a pair of upscale espadrilles says, “Sorry I’m late, I was out for a spin on my yacht. Crab cake, anyone?”
Yes. Yes, I will have a crab cake. And yes, my espadrilles look great.
