Summer Espadrilles from Viscata Barcelona
Espadrilles are the quintessential shoe of summer! and are easily dressed up or down. They will never go out of style and every season, designers come up with new and fabulous updates.
Espadrilles became the it shoe of summer in the 1940’s when the stars of the Hollywood silver screen brought them into mainstream fashion. Rita Hayworth wore a white pair in the film The Lady from Shanghai in 1947 and Lauren Bacall wore them in the movie Key Largo in 1948. The trend went from the silver screen to main street after that and the rest is history.
Today, just about anything goes when it comes to espadrilles. Whether they are glammed up or understated, there is a style for just about everyone.
The espadrilles I’m wearing here are by a new company in Barcelona called Viscata. They are extremely comfortable and easily pair with jeans, shorts or summer dresses. The heel height is perfect for walking in and would make a stylish statement on a summer trip where there is a lot of walking. Viscata shoes come in a variety of styles and colors to go with everything in your wardrobe. Be sure to take a look at the website to find the perfect pair to suit your espadrille wishes! Also, FYI…the run a little large so order a half size down.
