Espadrilles


espadrilles
ESPADRILLES are to loafers what UGGS are to boots.  These canvas shoes with a jute sole —- once merely a Spanish peasant shoe —- has become the footwear of choice for celebrities.  For the past few years, this style of shoes has been making its presence.
JUTE SOLES are what distinguish these shoes from other footwear.  Usually flat, ESPADRILLES are now available in wedges and heels and sport colourful fronts.  Owing to their popularity at street stores and designer boutiques, ESPADRILLES come in many styles, such as open-toe, back-open, slip-ons, with tie-up laces or as gladiator sandals.  Stylist Pernia Qureshi says that espadrilles are gaining popularity because they are casual and comfortable.  “These shoes  pair perfectly with shorts, dresses, denims and almost anything casual,” she says.  She recommends women pair wedge espadrilles with a lose-fitting top, cotton shorts and a big tote.
Image Consultant Yatan Ahluwalia says that with lighter hues ruling men’s fashion, espadrilles can be used to add colour to men’s attire.  “Textured, coloured or striped are suitable to laidback leisure look,” he advises.  Bright numbers are best sported with an all-white or muted ensemble.  Slip-on and flat espadrilles best suit men.
