Espadrilles are undeniably a summer staple. The perfect pair to flaunt at the beach, this casual yet sophisticated style goes well with almost anything! Plus, they’re comfortable to wear all day long.
In recent years, even designer brands have created luxury iterations of this style. Chanel’s tweed, canvas, and lambskin espadrilles instantly come to mind, and has become the covetable pair to shop as seen on style influencers like Kendall Jenner and Alexa Chung.
Skinny jeans and a hubadera top is Kendall's outfit of choice for her simple Chanel pair.
British It girl Alexa Chung dressed her pair with a double-breasted blazer (worn as a top) and straight-cut cropped denims.
