Espadrille Espionage: 6 Best Pairs to Wear for Summer

* Espadrilles are one of summer 2017’s biggest footwear trends
* This year, new iterations of the classic style are available
* Espadrilles are a comfortable and stylish footwear option for summer

Espadrilles are undoubtedly the quintessential summer shoe, but for 2017, this style is making an even bigger splash than normal. This means there’s even more options than before, making the classic (and on-trend) footwear style a no-brainer for your summer splurge.

Whether worn with a flat, wedge, or heel height, espadrilles look effortless and chic paired with a breezy dress or denim, from the beach to the dinner party. Here are the six best options we spotted.

1. Tory Burch Cap Toe Espadrille

This chic style gives the classic rope-soled silhouette a business-casual upgrade, with its black and white colors and sophisticated cap toe details. The supple leather upper looks more refined than canvas styles, making it a great option for the office and more formal occasions.

This sexy style is part-heeled sandal and part-woven espadrille. The combination makes for an effortless look with fashionable detail for a versatile heeled style that doesn’t look overdone.

If you love the convenience of a slip-on slide but are ready to ditch the once coveted Birkenstocks’ for the season, this metallic sandal-espadrille hybrid by Steve Madden is just for you. Adding a bit of height and a touch of shine, this will quickly become your go-to favorite for quick errands and beach days.

This flat, peep toe sandal features on-trend lace up straps that can be tied at ankle for a layered look or taken up the mid-calf for a more fashion-forward spin. The soft suede fabrication adds to rustic sensibility of the espadrille while still allowing for flexibility and comfort.
