The Ultimate Guide to Espadrilles

Espadrilles are (and always will be) the only sandals we need for summer. 

Native to Spain, the espadrille has a history that stretches back to the 13th Century, yet they’re the sandals that still epitomise the effortless and elegant style we crave when summer finally comes back around. 

Contemporary and comfortable, our classically crafted line-up of espadrilles have been made in Spain by master artisans using traditional techniques. Bearing the iconic hallmarks of an espadrille; like signature rope braiding, natural cork soles, soft canvas and suede fabrications, there’s an array of iterations that will form endless outfit opportunities for every event that summer brings. 

Proof that fine wine isn’t the only excellence to pour out of Spain.

Monochrome Minimalist 

Pops of bright shades are as joyful as it gets, so if you love to excite and surprise with blocks of bold colour, our Arabella wedges will hit the sweet spot and raise endorphin levels.

Equipped with a tonal wedge heel - braided of course, jute finishing and supple suede uppers, the colour block palette of Arabella is guaranteed to lift your spirits (and your outfit). 

Amplify your look by experimenting with varying shades, gradients, and textures, here @stripeycoral has paired the electric blue shade of Arabella with the inky stripes of her shirt and styled them with white tailored linen trousers for a crisp and chic coordinated combo.

Put It in Neutral

If you’re going to wear neutrals, then really wear it. Embrace earthy tones and tactile fabrics for a serene and simple approach to summer-dressing. 

When it comes to sandals with timeless appeal, there is little more enduring than a pair of nude wedges. Alyssa is the ultimate summer investment, they’re the kind of sandals that will promise maximum style mileage through every summer occasion, be it country weddings, exotic beach destinations, or a day about town. 

@amynevfashiondiaries presents a strong case for tonal dressing, and the key to its seemingly effortless appearance is the combination of complementary shades. Start with a blazer in a neutral colour and add high waisted tailored shorts for a subtle not to vintage style. 

Shorts not quite your thing? Opt for a cropped pair of wide-leg trousers to showcase the elegant ballerina straps in all their glory.

Flat Out

A flat pair of espadrilles are the perfect choice for your summer outings, in equal parts elegant and practical, they’re made to be worn pretty much everywhere, and their easy-breezy, do-it all attitude is what we love most.

Platform Slider Sandals

Mules are the epitome of summer, effortless to slip on and forever classic, they’re our sandal of choice year after year. 

We like to think of mules as the sister to ballet flats, meaning they’re versatile enough to see you through all your summer plans. Teal, our mule sandals, serve up an essential dose of minimalist style. Complete with an elevated, cork-filled sole and a halo of rope detailing that pays homage the espadrille. 

Slip them on with straight-leg jeans and a statement blouse for an easy work to weekend look, or switch from denim to statement midi-dresses when summer finally heats up.

Chunky Fisherman Sandals

Fisherman sandals are proving more popular than ever, especially if your summer footwear preferences toe a nostalgic line. Consider the Adelynn espadrilles to be your sandals of choice, their caged fit offers ample foot coverage, handy if you’ve missed your last pedicure appointment.

Crafted with soft leather and propped on an elevated (and all-together comfortable) flatform sole, the Adelynn leather sandals are surprisingly versatile. 

Style them with your favourite maxi dress, tailored co-ords, and even your denim jeans for an edgy take on summer styling.

This Time in Tan 

When your summer wardrobe is restricted to a suitcase, you need footwear with a versatile nature that will turn packing light into an art form. Sandals in shades of earthy hues, rich tans, and chocolate browns will set the tone for sun-kissed destinations.

Take Amerie as the sign you need to book that holiday, brilliantly detailed with supple suede straps, an oversized buckle, and braided detail across the tall wedge heel, they’ll look the part for every holiday itinerary. 

Wear them with cropped wide-leg pants and an embroidered blouse for sightseeing excursions or slip them on with a standout sundress when sampling the local nightlife.
