This Shoe Trend Is Ruling Summer

Espadrilles serve as our footwear du jour in warmer months. And while the raffia-adorned style suits a host of laissez-faire looks, this season’s classic shapes get a modernized, cool-girl spin via unexpected textures (read: denim, leather, suede), edgy hardware and quirky embroidery. We know you’re inclined to don them at the beach or an outdoor concert, but this summer, take it a step further and consider the 18 fresh takes ahead to polish your next date-night or (yes, really) workday outfit.
