Speaking of summer trends, the eyes are focused mainly on the upper or lower part of thebody. T-shirts, shorts, short-sleeved shirts. But even in summer you have to watch what happens beneath the ankles: the styles of shoes are indeed the easiest way to introduce some trend within your summer look.
No, we’re not talking about the usual slippers or flip flops knocking at the door of your wardrobe! The best alternative, even for the most demanding people who need shoes to not suffer from the heat, are the espadrilles.
Espadrilles are not exactly the most bold shoes to use, Maybe that’s why they are used especially in the summer and not in the other months of the year. But their relaxed atmosphere and the distinction of being one of the few footwear to be made with simple fabrics aroused the interest of many. And espadrilles have become a smart way to be a bit elegant, even in summer.
Summer trend of insects and custom espadrilles
For this summer, fashion loves nature. There is a special fascination with the insects. Maybe it’s the re-discovery of an environmental conscience, or maybe the emojis that have rapidly spread on smartphones. With all these influences, the adoption of insects in fashion was only a question of time.
For a summer shoe so tied to its origins as espadrilles, it can be very difficult to find something that makes special this trend. Custom espadrilles are a new way to create your own design (even if you are not designers!), adding all possible details.
In this post I created my pair of espadrilles with a classic summer pattern – sailor blue horizontal stripes – and a touch of the trend this summer: an insect on the front. With lightweight chino pants and a short-sleeved shirt you can give a personal touch to your stylish summer outfit.
