Nothing says summer more than espadrilles! This French Riviera-inspired pair usually comes with a coiled rope sole worn by vacationers residing in seaside resorts and was popularized by Chanel in the ‘50s. With its resurgence in the modern fashion scene, you have the chance to turn your jute pairs into city shoes by opting for designs with polished details like bows, PVC straps, and low heels. In these iterations, you can turn a simple blazer-tee-jean outfit combo into a versatile look you can wear to the office and on a casual day out.
