Saturday Shopping: How to wear Espadrilles

I just started wearing my espadrilles for the first time this year yesterday and was thinking about up-ing my espadrilles game…in other words giving myself an excuse to buy another pair.  I love espadrilles in the summer and funnily enough never wore them a lot before moving to France even though I had spent time in countries where the weather was more than adapted to them.  They go with almost everything,  and I end up wearing them so much during the summer here in France.

Espadrilles originated in Catalonia and although they are now mainly manufactured in Bangladesh there are still companies in Europe that specialise in the handmaking of the shoes.  If you follow Mandi Loves you know that I am a sucker for a ‘how it’s made’ video, so check out this talented man who has been making the trademark espadrilles soles for years, I love his technique for rolling the ends of the rope on his leg.

I also love how these stylish ladies wear their espadrilles.

These tan strappy coloured versions are great for elongating the legs, something I personally always need a little bit of extra help with.

A wedged version with ankle ribbons gives a more feminine feel while not being overly dressy.
