No other pair of shoes screams summer vibes than espadrilles. If you are looking for the shoes which incorporates style and comfort, then I recommend you find a pair of espadrilles wedges. This footwear is ideal for long walks during hot summer days no matter what is your destination. As a Caribbean native, espadrilles always evokes thoughts of warm days on the beach in Trinidad for me.
Just like any fashionable woman, I love a great pair of heels. However, I too need a break from heels, and truth be told, not every outfit calls for stilettos. Espadrille wedges are a comfortable and fashionable alternative to high heels. Espadrille wedges can be worn with a number of different outfits, and with almost anything – from jeans to mini skirts, maxi dresses to shorts. But choosing the right wedge sandals to go with the outfit is crucial as it can make or break your look.
Espadrilles are also the perfect shoes for when you want to bring heels on your next getaway but need something that will be reasonable to move around in. If you’re planning a trip soon, a nice pair of espadrille wedges can be your secret weapon.
I found these Kelly & Katie Hannah wedges from DSW for $39.99 and they are currently on sale in different prints. However, it appears that they are sold out in white. This closed toe lace up espadrille is the 2017 gladiator sandal! Like the gladiator, these espadrilles are great in giving the illusion of height due to the lace up. The key to styling these shoes is to pair them with simple outfits, keeping your look relaxed and effortlessly cool.
I styled my espadrilles with this high low dress that I thrifted from AMVETS thrift store in San Diego for $5. I am not even sure if high low dresses are still trendy, but what I wear is not always determined by what is in trend. Rather, I wear what I wear because I know it looks good on me, and makes me feel great. This dress meets that standard. I love the geometric print, the colors and the material, and of course, the price. Can you really beat the price of $5 for a great summer dress!
Finally, I added a skinny belt to cinch the waist and give my waist some definition since this dress was a tad too big for me. If you have a dress that is a little too big or has extra fabric in weird places, consider putting on a belt. Make sure that the belt sits at your natural waist to pull off a clean and effortless look. I threw on a this blush pink purse that I picked up from TJ Maxx for $9.99 to complete the outfit.
Hope I have inspired you to style some espadrilles in the near future.
