All About Espadrilles Being summer fashion staples, espadrilles are the perfect alternative to sandals. But why are they called so? Actually, espadrilles have a long and interesting history dating back to the 14th century, northern Spain. Originally, they were handmade by artisans from canvas and esparto rope, hence the name. These canvas shoes were super comfortable and suitable for all-day wear in the fields. They still remain ultra-comfy and are able to stretch out and adapt to the shape of your feet. Nowadays, espadrilles are made not only from canvas but also from other sorts of fabric, including leather and suede. The only thing that remains intact is the sole and heel made of esparto rope. From flat slip-ons to wedges, espadrilles are now available in a wide variety of styles to suit most outfits. They are very versatile and can be worn with shorts for a casual summer look or with a dress for an elegant evening look. See for yourself. By teaming espadrilles with jeans and a cross-style summer bag, you’ll create a perfect casual outfit suitable for shopping with girls or weekend with your family. You can wear just about any style of espadrilles with skinny jeans, yet we recommend pairing wide-leg jeans with wedges or heels of some sort. For the ultimate summer look, style an espadrille with your favourite dresses. Try to add a higher heel to a midi or maxi dress but style a mini dress with a shorter one for an effortless, girlish look. Another great go-to ensemble is to wear your espadrilles with rompers or jumpsuits. However, if you want to create a work-appropriate look, it’s better to opt for wedges and an elegant blouse tucked into a pencil skirt. That said, always consider your company’s dress code. Is it super-conservative or more casual?
