FINAL TOUCH: STYLING ESPADRILLES WITH EASE
The rope-soled summer staple may have a rustic Pyrenees heritage, but the espadrille is chicer and more city-appropriate than ever, with modern versions of the woven wonder bringing a boho-beachy vibe to the Summer 2014 collections of covetable labels like Chanel, Dolce &Gabbana, Valentino and Lanvin.
Just in case the sheer comfort of this classic canvas slip-on weren’t temptation enough, consider that style-setting stars like Cameron Diaz, Rihanna and Kendall Jenner have all been spotted wearing plaited soles this season.
We’re not saying bye-bye ballerinas or farewell flip-flops – we’re simply making room in our closets for the spirit of the Mediterranean: laid-back and laissez-faire.
Now, the key to sporting espadrilles with style is playing up their pastoral vibe. A billowy button down and crochet shorts in soft, neutral shades create a carefree-chic canvas for your fab finishing touches—namely our eye-catching striped espadrille and colour-blocked Ostwald Helgason x ALDO RISE cross-body bag. Add some subtle dazzle with delicate gold accessories like a long chain necklace, round streamlined sunnies and stacks of bracelets. From the city to the seaside, you’ll be ready for whatever summer throws your way!
