Here’s the thing about espadrilles – they might seem all summery, but when they’re of the flat, closed-toe vareity, they’re actually a very useful shoe to take straight through the first half of fall. And if you think the shoe might make you look like you’re a hopeful tourist, or your kindergarten teacher, don’t fret. This is an understated, stylish staple that just has to be paired right.
We recommend starting with a pair of relaxed and slightly broken-in straight-leg jeans (Levi’s, of course, which are a classic) and topping off the look with a crisp white blouse (this keeps everything grown-up.)
And in the middle, a colorful tote bag, long necklace, and understated studs will keep you accessorized yet looking just right.
