Take a look at how a few bloggers and celebrities styled their espadrille flats:

1. Boho Chic

This look is simple and cute and is perfect for warm weather. Denim layered with pastel is a casual, easy look, and the exaggerated accessories make a bold boho statement.

2. Relaxed Grunge

The ’90s are fierce on the fashion radar this summer, and there’s no reason why you can’t fit espadrilles into your grunge outfit. Loose shapes and layered accessories are effortlessly cool and right on trend!

3. City Cool

This look is urban and casual, but it still features elements of class. Leather and denim are paired together to offer a professional tone, but this is played down by a casual, oversized graphic tee.

4. Floral Fun

Floral is in fashion every summer, and this year is no exception. Work this loud pattern with oversized sunglasses and muted or neutral accessories to avoid clashing colors.

5. Ballerina Babe

This look is sweet and feminine. A neutral color palette and delicate fabrics transform you into a fashion princess, and 1920s accessories are adorable and trendy. Repeat after me: “socks and sandals can be cute!”

Veronica’s look is fresh and vibrant, thanks to her use of color and prints. She matched her red espadrille flats to her jacket and played up her white pants with a colorfully printed top and clutch. This look effortlessly embodies summer without the use of shorts or a dress.

A simple monochrome shift dress can be made ultra chic with the right accessories, as Leah proves. Her red bag adds a pop of color, while her color-blocked Chanel espadrille flats add high-fashion flair. With her hair pulled into a high bun and oversized sunglasses shading her eyes, Leah looks ready for an enjoyable summer day.
