We want to open this how to wear espadrilles shoes editorial with a bombshell: you can keep your streetstyle cool on if on your feet you have nothing more than raffia, cotton and plenty of that laid back attitude only this kind of shoes can bring. Think about it, why don’t you just wear them with socks and cropped jeans? That’s about it for streetstyle this year!

If instead you want to land on another kind of planet cute, a pair of lace up espadrilles sandals is perfect to wear all your summer mini dresses, with their vibrant colours and prints: the beauty of these kinds of ‘high heels’ is that on holiday they are legal, meaning it is OK to go for something more relaxed than stilettos.

She might be in a mood in this snap, but oh boy, everything she touches turns to marvel. This outfit is stupidly simple, with that relaxed plunge neck midi dress in red matched with a pair of espadrilles lace up sandals in black. So, are you done with thinking that espadrilles shoes can only be comfortable and not much is left to femininity? We would add: sensual attitude on.

The caption of these Louboutin wedges lace up espadrilles says it all ‘Statement made’. And that’s why we should all love espadrilles so much: thanks to their ‘textile’ side to them, they are always able to surprise us with the amazing things you can do with fabric, as in this cute knot you will be sporting on the back of your ankles. Not to mention the match with the emerald crew length fish net socks.

China red satin, the precious detail of a smooth nappa toe cap and the black intrecciato nappa strap make these women’s espadrilles a must-have for your summer night. If you want to match them with the most romantic looks for your summer dinners by the sea read here.

Espadrilles as in the classic shaped flats are probably the most gender fluid kind of shoes we can think of, even before sneakers. But if you need a little bit more convincing or just need some inspo on some of the most original espadrilles shoes for men, keep reading this.

Not only in the shape of espadrilles, raffia can also be designed into amazing sneakers, that is of course if  you really can’t give up the seaside vibe that for some reason this material can bring to the table. They really are unique and that’s why you can style them with smart pants for the night as well as bermuda shorts for your 11 am seaside coffee.

If instead you are looking for that eccentric, flamboyant, statement kind of espadrilles shoes as we found for the women’s, these are the closest thing you will find for espadrilles fivefingers, except these are actually stylish and edgy. Go Fun yourself with them!

Chanel espadrilles have had loads of girls going crazy for, but as you can see the leather flats are the best represented by men. The neutral cream and black tones are perfect even to be styled with formal attire as in these black suit trousers.
