There is a reason why Chanel espadrilles remain such a staple summer shoe till today.  I was a little late in jumping on the bandwagon but better late than never. Nothing screams more Parisian than these pair of buttery smooth leather beauties that epitomise classic chic , timelessness and functionality all in one package. They come in all kinds of designs and fabric every season but I find the leather ones the most versatile and definitely the pair to go for if you are purchasing your first pair .

 

Here is my quick review about the pair that I own.

Any regrets? No.

Durability ?  Pretty good so far  after a year.  I don’t usually baby my shoes . Just  DO NOT wear them in the rain

Sizing ?  I am usually a true size 36.5 acrose the board (ie Valentinos, Gucci , Aquazzura, Stuart Weitzman)  in most  shoes and have fairly wide feet. This is a rough guide but  I’d say go down a half size as there are actually no half sizes for the espadrilles. It has to be a snug fit  from the beginning as they do expand to at least a half size larger after  a while. Therefore I am glad I did not get a 37 even though it felt more comfy than the 36 initially

Where did I purchase it?  The Chanel store at Westfield Bondi Junction. They were a tough find as the 2 main stores in Sydney were constantly sold out.

Versatility ?  For sure. Keep reading below to see how versatile they are  and the many ways you could wear them  to elevate the look of various outfits

 

1.Wear it with a mini skirt/shorts

During the spring/summer months, I do love a  classic white tee paired with a pair of comfy skirt or shorts.  I think a pair of espadrilles really complements a casual outfit quite effortlessly on days you want to throw something on quickly and head out the door to do errands or just for a day out.

2. Wear it with cropped  jeans

I wore my espadrilles a lot while walking around in LA during winter and it felt great and buttery smooth on my feet. I am quite picky when it comes to walking shoes due to swollen bunions but the espadrilles were a great choice for walking and  I think they work well with a pair of cropped jeans  and a casual trench coat

3.  Wear it with  a midi skirt/dress

I am all about comfy wearable, low maintenance clothing like this leopard print skirt from Zara. The leopard print trend is still going strong and I think it is fast becoming a new “neutral”  or staple piece these days.
