Stylist Pick: Espadrilles

Nothing says flirty and fun this summer like a great pair of espadrilles!  They come in so many colors and designs that you can find the right pair for you no matter what your style.  My favorite time to throw on espadrilles is during a nice lunch date or a family summer party… You can even spice up a sexy outfit with some wrap around espadrilles for an eye-catching look!  Espadrilles are so versatile and chic; no wonder they are this week’s stylist pick!

First, let’s start with the basics: flat espadrilles.  These are SO cute during the warm weather of summer, and allow you to add some color and flare to an otherwise simple look.  A lot of people support and enjoy the styles of TOMS shoes, which is exactly what flat espadrilles are!  TOMS is an awesome company with a great attitude towards giving back and supporting those in need.  I know so many people who love their TOMS, so I would highly recommend that you give them a try.  Their brand has grown so much that they now even offer espadrille wedges for women!  Take a look at all of the different collections that TOMS has to offer, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Speaking of wedges, this is my personal favorite kind of espadrilles to wear… definitely great for a fun and feminine look!  Try and find a pair that has its own unique style, like a lace up detail, cute ankle strap, or a wrap around tie.  This one pair by Promise Shoes called “Promise Island Espadrille Wedges” go for only about $50, and for this kind of style I think they are totally worth it.  They even resemble a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes called “Praia Platform Espadrilles” that are a whopping $535.  These promise espadrilles are a promise that you’re getting a steal… Nothing better than getting hot celeb looks for a huge fraction of the price!

Here are some more gorgeous espadrille looks featuring so many of our favorite styles.  Lace up fronts, color block designs, bright and bold shades, peep toe styles, and sexy ankle straps!  Nothing screams style better than a great pair of shoes, and right now espadrilles are the best way to make your statement.  Throw on a fun and colorful pair of flats, like TOMS, for a simple daytime look- then spice up your nighttime fashion with one of these amazing pair of wedges!  Espadrilles are an all-around great investment because they work well during so many different occasions.  Whether you’re going for fun or fierce, show off your own individual espadrilles fashions this summer and let us know your favorite style!
