September 21, 2014, 1:01 pm

Espadrilles have recently enjoyed an unprecedented comeback into mainstream fashion, with almost everyone wearing a variation of this once popular footwear. But espadrilles aren’t only confined to summer weather – they are also an alternative to basic ballet flats, since they go with almost anything. Below are just a few ways to style this trendy shoe.

Beach apparel: Whether you’re on holiday, dreaming about taking one or just experiencing the unseasonably warmer weather, espadrilles are the perfect shoe to complete your outfit. Style a basic pair of espadrilles with a chic summer dress, to instantly update your look.

Also, an off the shoulder peasant top is the epitome of summer-chic, especially when paired with denim cut-offs and beach waves. Complete this fashion forward beach trend with fashionable espadrilles in a vibrant print.

Monochrome:  Nothing looks better than a shirt-dress paired with some retro espadrilles. There are many variations of this popular style like those with laces and wedges, so you are bound to find something you love. If your outfit choices are mostly monochromatic, invest in a pair of espadrilles which will interject a pop of colour into your attire.

For a more casual approach to monochrome, find a t-shirt that fits well, one with a drape that creates a flattering detail. Style it in a way to emphasize dressy casual like pairing it with white capris and espadrilles for a chic Riviera-inspired look.

Denim jeans:  Trade your old pair of ballet flats for a fun pair of espadrilles instead. Not only do they look better, but they also support the foot since they are equipped with a thick, resistant sole. Skinny jeans and a warm cardigan are just one way to make this look work.

Another way to style up denim is with the double denim trend. Make sure your jeans and top are different shades of denim – pair dark skinny jeans with a light denim shirt. Then, finish off your look with a chic pair of espadrilles in a complimentary color. Keep your hair and makeup fresh and youthful.

Yes, overalls. Take a lot of inspiration from the boho trend and channel this easy-breezy look with a graphic t-shirt, cute overalls and simple-looking espadrilles. All in the name of comfort dressing.

Dressy outfits:  Lace-up wedge espadrilles aren’t only confined to the south of France. You can create quite a chic look with a shift dress, leather trousers and a stylish blazer. An easy way to channel the minimalist aesthetic is by wearing a shift dress and pretty espadrilles in a bold colour. A bold lip is a great way to spice up this look without going overboard.

Multi-coloured espadrilles can go a long way as they are so versatile that you can mix and match them with various outfits for almost any occasion. The range of hues allows you to pair it with all kinds of coloured tops. Spring means floral, so how about flaunting prints that are vibrant and on trend. Pick any kind of trendy skirt as a fab find to wear with colourful wedge or flat espadrilles.
