Summer Trend: Espadrilles

If you’re going to buy one shoe this summer, make sure it’s an espadrille!

They are hot, hot, hot right now and work really well with both the nautical look and the 70s vibe that are all the rage at the moment.

I like them because they’re incredibly versatile and can be dressed up and down–plus I’m a sucker for anything with a bohemian feel.

In case you’re not sure of what espadrilles are (and you haven’t inspected the beauties below yet), they are, quite simply, shoes with rope around the sole.

According to Wikipedia, they originated in the Pyrenees and were worn predominantly by peasants. They became popular in the States after Lauren Bacall wore them in 1948’s Key Largo (great movie if you’ve never seen it!).

I’ve collected a variety of drool-worthy espadrilles for your viewing pleasure. Check them out below!
