If there is one shoe style you need to own this summer its definitely the espadrille. We all had a pair at some point in our lives. I remember my first one very vividly – bright red slip-ons – and at that time, I felt like the most fashionable girl on the block.
The story of this iconic shoe goes back to the 13th century in Spain and it’s popularity progressively grew through the years. The big recognition as a fashion staple came in the early 20th century when many movie stars and celebrities were photographed wearing them. From that point the espadrille became a true must have and a summer staple with a very strong presence in fashion in the decades that followed.
This summer we are experience one of the most exiting revivals of this iconic shoe. The styles are reinvented and reimagined and once classic black and nude colors are now replaced with bright bold hues, prints and embellishments.
These exiting styles are now easy to wear with your favorite summer dresses, ankle pants or shorts.
