Amp up your style with wedge espadrilles this summer
Happy first weekend of summer! Summer is such a fun season for fashion: You get to bust out bright colors, have fun with materials like flirty chiffon and breezy gauze, and round out your outfit with floppy hats and vibrant totes.
Arguably, the best part of all is pairing these pieces with a great pair of summery shoes or sandals. Some may say wearing flip flops beyond the context of a pool or beach is a major fashion faux pas, but we’ve seen stylish celebrities like Lauren Conrad and Selena Gomez beg to differ. Until that debate is settled, we’ll play it safe and recommend a dressier footwear option that will leave you looking undeniably fabulous this summer: wedge espadrille denim shoes!
Why we love them
Certain summer-appropriate pieces, such as a tank, shorts and flat sandals, often tend to look ultra casual together. If you find yourself wanting to look a little dressier than usual without resorting to wearing platform sandals that might be downright impractical on a summer day, try wedge espadrille shoes for the perfect happy medium. These can be dressed up just as easily as they can be dressed down, unlike a pair of flip flops, which tend to look casual no matter what you pair them with.
Maximizing your comfort
Wedge espadrilles offer a little more comfort and stability than high-heeled sandals, which make them a great choice that doesn’t require you to sacrifice your style. To amp up the comfort factor even further, you can throw in memory foam insoles, which just might make you forget that you’re wearing wedges. Look for memory foam insoles that you can cut for a customized fit – these can even be worn with peep-toe shoes, and no one will be the wiser!
