The Wardrobe Staple: Espadrilles

Now it has hit May, we are sort of smack bang in the middle of spring and summer which, although means better weather, sunnier days and less rain (we'd hope, anyway), it also means a little bit of wardrobe difficulty, especially when it comes to shoes! It's just too warm to get away with loafers, boots and trainers, but not quite hot and sunny enough to go all out with sandals. That's where the classic espadrille comes in!

Hardly a new trend; being a footwear staple since the 14th century, I think they just add the perfect amount of effortless chic to any outfit, whilst being versatile and classic enough to suit everything from slouchy jumpers and jeans, to summery, smart dresses!
