Spring/Summer 2011 Trend Alert: Updated Espadrilles

March 31, 2011 • Yahoo


Summary: There was a time (a long time ago) when I owned 3 new pairs of espadrilles every summer. One pair was flat, another was wedged and the third wrapped up my calf (usually flat). They were my summer staples. It was also the 80's. I bought a pair of wedge espadrilles about 7 years ago and found them unbelievably heavy and clunky so they lived in my closet a few years and then I got rid of them. I never gave espadrilles another thought…until now. They are back this season with a vengeance! Luckily these updated styles give you options galore! You can go with tried and true styles or if you are like me, venture into the new shapes and fabrics like one I picked to show above. I'm personally obsessed with #'s 6 & 7. Which pair(s) do you covet?
