Spring season is here in full bloom and what better way to celebrate than by strapping on your favorite seasonal wedges — the espadrille. Classified as a wedge with rope or a woven sole, espadrilles always evoke a feeling of spring fashion and casual summer dress. However, espadrilles can be your most versatile shoe this spring, as they seamlessly work their way into almost any outfit. Your favorite shorts, casual dresses and even jeans can be kicked up a notch with these woven wedges.
This Fashionista was working her espadrilles this week with a great fitted pair of dark denim. The wrap around ankle ties on these wedges not only makes for a fun detail, but also add stability as she’s going about her busy day. A bright lime and cream color blocked top juxtaposes the skinny jeans and a turquoise and gold fringe necklace adds a colorful, textural punch to the outfit. This Fashionista’s espadrilles complete her casual spring look — adding not only a few extra inches of height, but also bringing in a small amount of texture and a unique tie detail that your basic sandal definitely can’t compete with.
But don’t limit your favorite espadrilles to a basic pair of jeans and a top. As the temperature is quickly rising, tie on those woven wedges with a pair of bright, high-waist shorts for a classic, tailored look. Or if you’re craving a more ethereal vibe, pair your espadrilles with a maxi dress. And who says that this spring staple shoe has to be made of a neutral rope? Bright and patterned wedges can be just the statement piece you need to complete a perfect outfit. So this spring, do the ‘drille — the espadrille that is.
