Espadrilles and Rattan Clutches
Espadrilles are my favorite spring/summer shoe. The sturdy jute wedge, textured canvas, and luxurious grosgrain ties had me at hello. During the summer of 2016, I wore a pair every day of the work week, and I remember how desponded I was when the time came to tuck them away in the closet at the end of the season. Back when we could enjoy social occasions like brunch, date nights at the movies, or vacations in general, my espadrilles were frequently cast as stars in my outfits. I’m not sure how I made it this far without an appropriate summer clutch to pair with them. This season, I made it my mission to find two clutches, either in rattan or straw, that would compliment my espadrille collection: one that would pair well with my dark espadrilles and one that would suit the lighter pairs. I decided on one style of clutch in two different colors. They are proving themselves very versatile, and the optional chain renders them exceptionally functional.
