2. Go for sneaker style espadrilles for a sporty look

If flat espadrilles seem like more your style, and you’re looking for something casual and laid-back, we can’t say enough good things about sneaker espadrilles.

With a look that’s relatively the same as your basic sneaker, this version takes the style to a new level by adding an espadrille bottom.

Not only is this more visually interesting than a standard sneaker, but we also love that it gives the sneaker a bit more of a boho, beachy vibe that’s perfect for summer.

3. Slides can also be found in an espadrille style

If a casual style is up your alley, but you’re not into that sporty look, pick yourself up some espadrille slides.

Perfect for throwing on with your favorite denim, or even a cute sundress, these espadrilles are guaranteed to become your go-to footwear for spring and summer.

4. Make a statement with lace-up espadrilles

We love a good lace-up shoe, especially in a bold color.

If you’re in the same boat, and you like making a statement with your footwear, we highly recommend scooping up some colored lace-up wedges in the espadrille style.

Not only is this a bit more interesting than the basic wedge espadrille, shown above on Kate Middleton, it’s also an easy way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

It’s a win-win!

5. Have you tried the platform espadrille?

A hybrid between a slide and a wedge, if you can’t decide which espadrille style best suits your personal taste, the platform espadrille might be for you.

Easily dressed up with your favorite midi skirt, or dressed down with your favorite pair of cropped denim, this is an espadrille style that you can wear all season long.

The bottom line with espadrilles: as their popularity continues to rise through spring and into summer, you can find this trend in almost any shoe style that you can think of.

Go for your favorite flat espadrille style, or take it up a notch with a trendy wedge. However you choose to wear espadrilles this season, it’s hard to go wrong.
