save or splurge: leopard espadrilles

leopard espadrillesh&m // soludos // steven

I can already tell that this summer’s footwear is going to be such a toss-up between espadrilles and slip-on sneaks. Gah, I just love them both. You already know I’m obsessed with leopard flats (recently styled here), and these there more casual options are a major home run. I had been coveting the sneaker option however after stumbling across the espadrilles, I’m sold. I scouted at the following three pairs at various price points.

How to style? If you’re new to leopard, I love the idea of going totally classic with a white tee  or button, distressed denim (shorts or pants). Another classic style is pairing it with a black blouse + white denim. More adventurous gals should go with a color like lilac, baby blue or hot pink; three personal favorites this season. Don’t be shy about pattern mixing with florals or stripes, or bold colors like red (a natural pair).

    Nice post. I certainly think the no socks look is a wniner in most fashion styles/circles. Not sure it’d work with a three-piece suit but maybe I need to see it to be convinced?

    What brand are the ones in the picture on the persons actual feet? I searched for chanel ones(since someone mentioned that in a previous post) but they are shaped a lot different. I cant seem to find these exact ones.

      Hi Mal, I don’t know to be honest! I’ve been trying to hunt them down through this pic (whose origin I can’t ID) and also through shopping searches and have been turned up empty handed. Keep you posted.

    I actually own leopard slip on sneaks in two different colors but after seeing these I need them! espadrilles look much better than slides with summer dresses!

    I do not own one pair of these because I feel like they would hurt my super sensitive feet (wahh) but they’re so, so, cute. Of course, I lusted after the Chanel pair when they first came out. How are you doing? I hope you’re doing great 🙂

    I just added that Steven pair to my wish list last week – hoping my hubby will get them for me for Mother’s Day! 🙂

    I love them all! The espadrilles have my vote over the slip on sneakers.
