10 hot styles of espadrilles

FASHIONKim & Chloe

Nothing says summer like slipping on sandals or espadrilles and absolutely nothing says comfort like a well worn espadrille. So guess what I choose 99% of the time? Yep, espadrilles are my spring and summer goto shoe for comfort. And this season is offering some crazy cute styles that are amping up the simple silhouettes from seasons past. With embellishments, tones, patterns, stripes and heights... if you want it, you'll have no problem finding it in espadrilles. And you'll be right in style, without sacrificing any comfort. What's not to love?

We also really like these tassel espadrilles - how fun are they? - these sueded snake ones, these stripe and tan ones by the venerable Castañer and these tie-dye looking ones with a romantic rabbit. All are so unique that you could switch up a pair every day and feel like you have a new look for a new shoe, but still get that espadrille / slipper / summer feel. Right now, I'm enjoying my newish leopard print espadrilles with everything from camo, to jeans to stripe skirts.  Whether I'm in flats or heels, espadrilles have my feet singing, "...summertime... and the living is easy."
