Fashion blogs and magazines worldwide are calling espadrilles the essential summer shoe because they combine style with comfort and versatility: you can wear them with everything from a summer frock to shorts. For the uninitiated, espadrilles “are normally casual, flat, but sometimes high-heeled shoes-slippers with a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of jute rope. In the last few seasons they have been revamped by designers with new colors, textures, and styles”, according to the Vogue Italia website. With so many gorgeous pairs to choose from, stylists have provided a plethora of outfits to inspire you to try this trend. With my focus on vintage costume jewelry, I have created a collection of weekend/off-duty ensembles that feature elegant TruFaux Jewels with elegant shoes.
